“I read the book before seeing the movie, and I am aware of the fact that the translation of a book into a movie is often a disappointment. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the adaptation of this book. I think it tries to keep the spirit of the book, even when there are some changes, and I really think they did their best to stick to the story and keep things into character. I actually did not know much about most actors, but they were cast well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy impression was that this was a way to start a series based on D.D. Warren stories. I would like that. She appeared to be a witty, strong character. I think that Bobby was not portrayed as strong as he could be, because a lot of his background story was left out in this movie. I have to admit that some parts of the movie were a bit cheesy, or should I say old-fashioned, or (maybe worse) stereotype, but I could look past that because of the overall story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy main criticism would be the use of the u0026#39;victimu0026#39; Annabelle. In the book, she has a lot of first-person story, that is not really included in the movie now. Moreover, she appears to be a stronger personality in the book than in the movie. I personally believe that that is a missed opportunity, since they cast someone that could really play a believable strong but vulnerable personality to play Annabelle. Overall, I would recommend to watch this movie.”
