These books really do need a mini-series amount of time to tell them adequately.
This version lumped too many items and too many characters together and so I ended up pretty blase about most of them. It was choppy even while seeming slow-paced and the just over 2 hours run time was so little time to flesh out the story or the many suspects.
I'll have to rent the Alec Guinness version to compare.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
