Was really hooked by the story, performances and suspense but then gradually got worse from half way. Think I fell asleep during the last part at the cinema. Watched it again on TV a few years later and still fell asleep for the last third! Went on a bit too long.
First half was excellent though. The young actors were all excellent.
Reminded by this review, I watched it again last night on the original Blu-ray (which looks great actually), and I fell asleep just after half way. I forgot about that, it really drags after a certain point, and only picks up at the very end. Not sure what's wrong with it exactly, but the pacing is definitely off somehow.
