Summary: This was a highly anticipated film on its release . Based upon the cult novel by Alice Sebold and directed by Peter Jackson it opened to very Luke warm reviews by the critics .

Excerpt: A poor version of What Dreams May Come and Here After. Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) narrates her story. Her parents Jack (Mark Wahlberg) and Abigail (Rachel Weisz) get worried since Susie has been missing for 4 hours.

Summary: -The following will not reveal any spoilers above those presented in any trailer- It is rather sad, to see how people are grabbing on to many of the former reviews and are continually bashing on the CGI use in this, in my opinion, hauntingly beautiful movie.
