I went into this movie thinking it was going to be horrible, however I was pleasantly surprised. It gave a hard long at life during the depression. The cast was put together wonderfully. Pattinson and Witherspoon were great.

This movie really shows Robert Pattinson's acting talent. He was wonderful showing such innocence like the character he played was and he looked truly comfortable with the animals. I was also impressed with Chris Waltz portrayal of August,absolutely brilliant. The movie was very true to the book everyone should see it a definite must see.

Normally I hate going to see movies based on my favorite books, and I had pretty low expectations for this one (although the book was phenomenal). Hallelujah, this director got it right!!! The scenery, costumes, and acting are all A+ quality. There is plenty of action and even my fiance said his man-card was still intact. This film has a big-budget look and feel about it, and I am so glad I spent the $8. I was nervous about Robert Pattinson's portrayal of the main character, but he completely broke out of his Twilight mold and gave depth and emotion to our hero, Jacob Jankowski. I did not feel any disappointment (in comparison to the book). On the contrary, I feel that this is one of the few based-upon-a-novel films that have actually done the book justice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
