I first saw Tim Burton’s remake, which I liked, then I read the book by Pierre Boulle, which I think is a masterpiece, but it was much different than Burton’s movie. I’ve seen this film and is well above the new version, it is as good as the book and the book contains almost all events, the end is much better and surprising and dialogues not bore you at all, it shows that you do not need special effects to make a good story, and over time this movie is getting better and better.
