It seems slow at the start, which makes it too long, but the by the end of the film you can easily forgive any of it's flaws. A truly remarkable film.

I was interested in this film when it got a limited cinema release earlier in the year. At that time I didn’t know there was some doubt about the authenticity of the film. However whilst watching it, the thought that it was all a hoax just grabbed hold at the start and wouldn’t let go. Things didn’t add up, other things seem to contradict and there was just the feeling that if anybody were going to fake the whole thing it would be this group of people. The problem is that the film whether it is a hoax or not should remain interesting throughout and for me this didn’t.

When you're expecting something to be bad it often turns out not to be as bad as everyone was making out. Ron Howard's adaptation is far far too long (but the same can be said about most films these days) and feels like it could have been so much better. Ultimately it's a disappointment, highlighting the problems with the story rather than the sense of mystery but it's watchable never the less.
