This movie was not a good adaptation of the book, nor does it stand on its own as a successful film. The film was boring, drawn out, and stale, and it didn't create any of the epic urgency of the book. David Yates changed -- completely unnecessarily -- so many details I'd found to be interesting in the book, perhaps for film expediency, but then wasted time on hollow dramatic concoctions. He is an emasculating director.
But then, I didn't see the movie in 3D, and I actually read the book.
