Last week I went to the cinema to watch “Inferno“, a film adaptation from one of Dan Brown’s books, and while I did enjoy the film I have to say I was disappointed with the ending.
Now, I won’t go into too much detail (Nobody likes spoilers, am I right?) but if you’ve read the book already then beware, the film was only loosely based on the book. So be ready for quite a few changes.
The director of the film even tried to explain why he decided to make those changes (here), but Dan Brown’s fans are NOT a happy bunch after reading his interview. Some people got rather upset actually. You can see some fan reactions here.
Personally, if I hadn’t read the book before watching the film I’d probably enjoy the film a lot more. But being the bookworm that I am, I knew what was supposed to happen in the story, and that kind of spoiled it for me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such major changes in a book-to-film adaptation. Like, ever!
So my question for you today is: What has been your biggest book-to-film adaptation disappointment so far?
