Great film, not quite as good as the book but still good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: K-Pax [DVD]  (DVD)
I got this film after reading all three K-Pax books. The film is only based on the first book in the trilogy which I think is a shame.
I really loved the books. They were a fantastic and entertaining read which makes it hard for any film to live up to. Even though I found all 3 of the books a great read I found the second and third the best which is why I think it is a shame that the film is only about the first book.
Apart from that, if you liked the book you will like the film. Kevin Spacey does a great job at playing Prot. I don't think anyone else could have played it as good as he. Jeff Bridges is excellent too as Dr Mark Powell BUT he was a little young compared to the Dr in the book which meant that his family was a little too young too which in turn meant that a couple of plot lines were missing from the film.
Buy it or rent it, you will not regret it.
