I never read the book upon which the story is based, so I can't compare the two. I wouldn't have
gone at all except that my mom and brother wanted to see it and I went along for the ride .. but it did have some fun, scary, exciting and edge of your seat segments. Loved the miniature elephant, jumped out of my seat more than once at the sudden appearance of other larger critters. We saw the 3D version which allowed for some fabulous 'in your face' effects. Michael Caine's character added some interest, and the playful animosity between his character and the bulky but affable actor playing the young boy's step father was humorous. Many of the larger island scenes were breathtaking and a second run through would probably allow me to catch a lot of things I missed the first time through. The ending was somewhat predictable, but I'd give it three out of five star for effort.
