Trivia

Due to a poorly received test screening, David Ellison, a financier at Paramount, became concerned that the film was "too intellectual" and "too complicated," and demanded changes to make it appeal to a wider audience, including making Portman's character more sympathetic and changing the ending. Producer Scott Rudin sided with Garland in his desire to not alter the film, defending the film and refusing to take notes. Rudin had final cut. See more »

Tonal Mess
23 February 2018 | by sscott94See all my reviews

The movie tries to be brilliant but it's a mess. Tonally, it doesn't know what it wants to be. Suspense? Horror? Sci-Fi? Action? It does a terrible job of blending all of these. By the end, I was left wondering, "What was the point?"

The protagonist's journey is muddled by the end the story limps to the finish line. The writer/director doesn't seem to know where the story is going,halfway through.

Interviews with the cast reveal that the story and tone changed throughout filming. Also, other's who have read the books have said that he drastically departs from the book, changing the ending completely - never a good sign.
