    Anyone see it? Watched it last night. Stars Juilanne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. People around the world start going blind and are quarantined and forced to fend for themselves.

    It sucks. Maybe the first ten minutes were interesting. The rest was boring.

    That is disappointing to hear. The book was great but, as usual, movies never do a good job duplicating the novel.

    I didn't think it was that bad, but I couldn't understand why Moore's character did nothing for awhile to stop the bad guys in the ward when she could see.

    If you read the book, she never told anyone that she could see because she (and her husband too) was afraid that people would take advantage of her ability and use her to not just rationalize food and guide people to places, but use her literally as a slave, to make her clean the wards, look after the other blind internees and what not.
