Good entertainment. If you read the book, it's not the same (why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, if I hadn't read the book it would have been a 5) The reason, many things omitted, or changed to fit a movie length feature. I really liked the book, loved the movie.The books dialog is very...flowery....I mean, a lot of words to get to the point of a conversation...I guess it was the times and the way people spoke back then. In the book I found it a little hard to figure out who was who...similar and french names, not a problem in the movie as you have the character to relate to. Actors really fit their Characters. Jim Caviezel is definately easy on the eyes, so to speak.
