Review: I've read the book and now I've seen the movie. The book was great in my opinion and if you want to read my review, follow this link

There were some terrible reviews of this movie when it was first released last year, I can see why... to a point, but I think there was something wonderful about this movie still that makes it worth watching. 

The characters all have a purpose, no matter how small it might be. They were wonderful. What could have been improved upon was their back story. We really didn't get the sense of why the characters were as colorful as they were. I think that had a lot to do with limited timing and so much story to fit into 2 hours and 8 minutes. 

The cinematic were epic. The cities that travel the land eating smaller cities really were terrifying in an awesome way. 

I wanted to know more, but since I had already read the book, I had a better sense of what was going on. My poor husband though needed explanations.

The movie was worth watching once, and the book is a great read. You should really pick up both.
