Similarly, Bud Cort’s performance remains memorable not only because he acts realistically, but also because he fits the role of Harold.

Destin Daniel Cretton, the screenplay writer, does a wonderful job of putting the thrilling stories into action. The actors chosen could not have been better casted, Woody Harrelson, in particular, projects himself into character perfectly. Reading through the book, I wondered to myself how credible the stories actually are.
Also in the book you can see more character development. Even though the film was not exactly like the book the director did a great job, and this still is one of my favorite movies.
