    NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK TOO MUCH WAS LEFT OUT OF THE MOVIE A BETTER JOB COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY THE WRITER THAT MADE THE BOOK A GREAT SUCESS

    Excellent acting all around. Good to see Ryder back in the saddle...did a great job as the innocent wife. Had a problem knowing who was who because the bad guys all looked alike and in muted dark lighting. Beautiful contrast between K\'s brutality on one hand and his family tenderness on the other.
