Eastwood has licence to tamper with a novel.,
This review is from: Blood Work  [DVD] (DVD)
Some reviewers have complained that Clint has changed the villain in his interpretation of the film from the book. Perhaps because many of us haven"t read Connelly"s novel the eventual revelation,though not entirely surprising,seems quite plausable and works OK.
Clint"s trademark intensity which he brings to his films is here as is his good charactorisation of even the peripheral players in this thriller/drama.
I appreciate that much of the detail and intricacies from the book are missing(I bow to you readers of the novel). However to me this film stands up alone as a highly watchable story with an intriguing plot-line.
Not his best work, but still engrossing and highly recommended.
