Movie Review, XI

I read and liked The Kite Runner so I was pretty excited to see the movie version, even though its reviews weren't terrific.

I actually ended up enjoying the movie much more than I thought I would, based on its reviews.  It wasn't incredibly great, but it was very engaging, visually very pleasing and there were also a couple great acting performances, most notably Ahmed Khan Mahmidzada, who played Hassan, the main character's servant and best friend.

Though the book was better, I liked the movie and appreciated, generally, how true to the book it was.
