It does seem Alex that most of the reviews in quality sources rated it 3 or 4 out of 5, but they all seem to use reviewers who were not AR readers. Over the years I've see this with a lot of film adaptations of books - don't let someone who has read it review it!

A good review from a BBC source is going to be unlikely as it was their film!

On Amazon the vast majority of the 100 or so reviews are 5 out of 5, and it seems that reflects the view of the media. Many of them reviewing the film as a stand alone production with no reference to its source material.
