More like a student film or a short film for Youtube. Does not follow the books very well and makes quite a few unnecessary changes to the characters. It is quite good for what it is and it is entertaining. It is a great start and hopefully will build up enough of a fan base or inspire a studio to make a full-length feature film. There were some things that I really hated though besides they way it didn't quite follow the storyline. 1. They made the institute more humane and barren, there are supposed to be other (failed) experiments and much smaller cages. 2. They aged up Nudge. 3. Iggy doesn't make explosives with Gazzy, and his character is underused. 4. The characters looked different than they were described. However, it did have an alright plot line that made sense and was obviously related to the books and the cast, though poorly chosen, were pretty good actors. I just hope a big studio film is made that does the books justice, or at least a second film is made with more funding and that pays closer attention to the books as a redemption.
