do they really think they're better than Mark Twain?
29 July 2013 | by albastraSee all my reviews

I bought the DVD because Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn were my favorite books growing up. I read them so many times, I almost know them by heart. So, full of expectations, I started to watch the movie. The actors are good, the atmosphere reminds me of the book - and there it ends. The plot is something else entirely - so loosely based on the marvelous novel it falls completely through. Fifteen minutes in the movie and it already goes off on a tangent, in an entirely different direction. Some characters are from the book, some aren't. Even the ones that are in the book have suddenly a different agenda. An incredibly bad movie in itself, an incoherent story where not even a sparkle from Mark Twain's genius shines through. Why, why would somebody think that he or she can rewrite one of the most wonderful stories of all times???
