“I am an avid reader, and I seldom enjoy film versions of novels that I have read. It is amazing how Hollywood can take an interesting and exciting book and turn it into total garbage.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Jessie Stone novels by Robert Parker are some of my favorites. I prefer them to the Spenser books because the Stone character is more realistic and multi-dimensional than Spenser.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHaving said all that, this adaptation of the Parker book is exceptionally well done. Selleck is perhaps a bit too old to play Stone, but he is the perfect person in all other respects for the job. It has been a while since I read the book, but unlike most other adaptations, this one stays true to the original, and the story survives in the film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI was not aware that this movie had even been made until I saw and rented it this afternoon in my local video rental store. It was well worth the price.”
