I'm all for creative new spins on ideas from great works, such as ray bradbury's f451, but just don't call it fahrenheit 451 another reviewer asked why so many negative reviews, well it's because when you choose to make an adaption of such a beloved book, you do the author and fans justice by sticking to the main themes of the movie and pivotal points and roles. Early in “fahrenheit 451,” montag (michael b jordan) readies himself in front of his bathroom mirror, which doubles as a supersize smart screen, pulsating with news updates and a never-ending.
Classic, still-powerful story of futuristic censorship read common sense media's fahrenheit 451 review, age rating, and parents guide. This version of fahrenheit 451 lacks the burning commentary that would justify why the filmmakers wanted to revisit this story in the first place.
Critic consensus: fahrenheit 451 is an intriguing film that suffuses truffaut's trademark wit and black humor with the intelligence and morality of ray bradbury's novel.
