Sucked!

It was a good story line but the directing sucked. Am I the only one who sees this?

I bet the book was better.

Now that I saw the movie I want to read the book. It's a very interesting story line but the movie was poorly executed. It really drug on, it didn't explain a lot and there were these scenes where for like two minuets straight you're just starring at a person doing nothing and there were a couple Quentin Tarantino
moments. It was aggravating.

I liked it, but the hanging scene got on my nerves.

I haven't seen it yet, but those I know who have seem to agree that it was extremely overrated.

I haven't mustered up the courage to watch it. My grandDad's side is from Mississippi and he used to tell me stories growing up. Love Lupita N'yongo though.

It was a pretty good story line but I didn't enjoy the directing. It has a happy ending though :)
