Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Before walking into the theatre I was somewhat apprehensive about how this film would turn out. The main worry I had was how they would convey Douglas Adams written wit in a film.

The director though was true to the books form and managed to use narration very well to keep those classic bits of written humor in the film.

The best character in the film was the depressed robot, played by the brilliant Alan Rickman(of die hard fame). I never saw the humor in the depressed robot while reading the book but in film form it was absolutely hilarious.

I would recommend that people see this film but also that they read the book to see the differences. The story was different in many respects but kept the key moments from the book.

Overall Rating: 9
Die Hard Rating: 6 (thanks to Alan Rickman)
