I have not read the book, and had no intention of checking this movie out in the first place. My wife had other plans. So I sat on my couch awaiting what I thought was going to be a shallow and far-reaching movie. This is actually a great crime/detective thriller with great characters and great acting. The rape scene was far too brutal for me. I guess some people might think that adds to some kind of anger to keep the movie going, but I thought it was unnecessary and disturbing. Other than that, this was a fantastic movie and is definitely worth the rental.
