A book series that was purported to be unfilmable winds up being exactly that. Probably would have worked better as a long format series, but sadly now will take a while before anyone attempts it again.

The concepts are interesting and have a lot of depth to be plumbed.
The Cast are a big name bunch and they are doing as good a job as they can.
Mads' pimp coat is a thing of great power.
It feels shallow and fails to explore almost everything interesting in its premise.
Daisy's character is the single least developed part of the story and its quite insulting
There's some really unnecessary animal cruelty and violence in here that is gratuitous and gross.
This week we are exploring the inherent strangeness and discomfort of letting our innermost thoughts and feelings be seen and heard by the world, (I mean it’s not that weird is it? We do it every week!) as we check out Chaos Walking, the cinematic adaptation of The Knife of Never Letting Go; the first book in Patrick Ness‘ highly acclaimed Y.A. trilogy Chaos Walking. The first book in the series came out in the same year as The Hunger Games (2008), so you could be forgiven if you might not have heard of it.
The boys; Dion and Quinny may not be able to shut up their noise, but thankfully Peta and Jill have no problems making their thoughts heard, loud and clear, on this film.
