Default 'Apt Pupil' - High-Def Digest Review

Aaron has reviewed 'Apt Pupil.' He's still not very impressed with this film. This Blu-ray features fairly strong video, off-balance audio, and some OK extras. Worth a look.

The reviewer is a little hard on the film, it's a solid little movie. But I have read Stephen Kings novella, and it of course is much better. Todds metamorphasis is much better explained as the story goes(he always had a dark nature, but the deeds of the Nazi regime brought it out and gave him ideas).

Spoiler for those wanting to read the book:

The ending is much more satisfying in the book. At the end Todd doesn't just walk away as a monster in society, instead he collapses from all his inner rage and takes his dads hunting rifle with scope to a freeway overpass and kills until the cops kill him.


Ultimately the movie feels like a footnote version of the book.
