Newt's movie review

Because Gibson wrote the screenplay it was extremely faithful to the book and that's a very good thing; some of the scenes were exactly as I had imagined them. Unfortunately, I had imagined them with much better acting. Reeves was incredibly wooden and had extremely poor delivery. Just awful. However, the special effects were pretty cool and the computer sequences were good. It's a good story but a B-movie.
