Ripley's movie review

I couldn't pass this one up, now could I?

Malkovich and Scott were good and the story was interesting but there were several elements that were just briefly mentioned and character aspects that weren't explored enough. They left me with more questions than answers and made me want to read the book. I suspect it (the book) is great while the movie was only ok.
