Fabulous Movie Review©

Catch-22 I read the book and loved it, and I didn't go into this movie expecting it to live up to the book. They never do. Even a brilliantly executed book-based movie has to leave out certain bits just to fit within the 2 hour constraint. Catch-22 The Movie! is no different and I didn't have a problem with that in theory. However, in practice the movie is very disjointed and is lacking a good narrative. It's just a collection of moments from the book with not much to link it all together. In fact, if I hadn't read the book I really wouldn't have known what was going on. Especially the end.

5 out of 10 (Could be worse)
