A story about this — 3 years ago
Maybe I should have seen this when everyone else did in order to be infected with the “best. movie. ever!” frenzy.
Instead I watched it last night (Feb 2010) and found it, well, meh. A pretty decent movie but I certainly don’t understand all the hype surrounding it.
Also, how is it that Dev Patel gets top billing? I feel it was the younger children that told most of the story with brief glimpses of him interspersed throughout the film.
It is certainly worth a watch, just don’t let the hype raise your expectations or you will be disappointed.
