The Book Was Better

I read the Alistair MacLean novel and really enjoyed it. I just can't figure out why this transition to the big screen had made so many changes to it. The movie making crew heading to Bear Island have been changed to...scientists studying climate change! Character names have been changed as well. They should've stuck with the original story.

It's intriguing to have a story set on one of the most remote islands in the world. I just wish this movie had did a better job of that.

The more I study it, the greater the puzzle becomes.
