Not to mention the fact that a decent part of the plot involved two naked boys climbing through ventilation shafts. Murdering one another, oh and then an 8 year old becoming suicidal due to Committing the universes worst Atrocity yet.
But honestly, it looks pretty sweet, Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham? Harrison Ford as the gruff Graff. The easiest part for them to mess up, The battle room, looks awesome, and pretty close to what I'd imagined whilst reading the book.
I plan on watching it, and I hope it's as good an adaptation as the LOTR series
minor omissions are fine, just try to not change too much.
