"I have never felt strongly enough about a film to submit a review, but I simply have to air my views about this adaptation of Emily Bronte"s classic. I was so disappointed, I don't think I have ever disliked a film so much. I studied this for my A level text 17 years ago, have read the book several times and seen other films and television dramas of the classic. It was so slow and took so long to get going, the lack of dialogue was very annoying, particularly when they cut the classic pieces down "Nelly, I AM Heathcliff......" These are such fundamental elements of the starry that they have to feature in full. The camera work was also very irritating after a while and I was getting fed up of the endless shaking camera scenes and that of the wildlife and insects. The casting of Cathy and Heathcliff was also poor, the older characters playing no resemblance to the younger. I felt the raw passion between cathy and Heathcliff wasn't portrayed either, probably due to the small amount of dialogue. The fact that almost the entire second half of the story was cut out - no scenes of young Cathy (another fundamental part) was a major blow. Please don't go and see this movie if you don't have a good understanding of Bronte's text - you will be very put off and extremely disappointed."
