I loved the books, but at some point in the movies, I found myself bored. It is just too drawn out. I get how most people love the fact that absolutely no detail is left out. But that is not good filmmaking. The two main characters have a lot of chemistry on screen. I like their acting and I can really feel the tension between them, but that's about the only thing that carries this movie, apart from "dialogue". All off the other essential elements a good film needs to have are missing. The other characters around Gabriel & Julia appear to be irrelevant, and it feels like they were cast that way. Just pick some people to fill the void, never mind their acting skills. Professor Singer was exceptionally bad. It also makes me wonder how many "parts" they have to make to only cover the first book?
