Movie Reviews

An INSULT to Robert Ludlum's Work, Never Watch This
Mick82 | Boston, Ma | 05/14/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Robert Ludlum should rise from the grave to beat the snot out of everyone involved in making this piece of trash. I would have given it zero stars if I was able to. Absolutely none of the great aspects of The Hades Factor novel make it into this miniseries. The whole story of what Covert One is is completely changed, and not even remotely for the better. The characters of Klein and the President are completely changed, along with pretty much every single other character.

Ludlum was a genius of the spy thriller and suspense. About .05% of this bares any resemblance to his work. I was really hopeful for this series to hit the big screen someday. When I found out it was going to be a miniseries I was still hopeful it wood be done well on TV, but that hope was deflated when I saw this.

Why do people who make movies/TV shows based on very successful books feel that they can do it better just because? Why can't they just make a movie as the book was because the book was already a hit? I know certain things have to be adjusted for the screen. While the Bourne movies were only loosely based on Ludlum's trilogy, they were still very enjoyable. The Hades factor miniseries can say no such thing.

The acting is horrible, the direction is lame, and the story has been so bastardized that it makes me fear they might do the same to the later books in the series. Please stop ruining great books because of your massive ego Hollywood. Ludlum was better than you on his worst day ... even dead.

Go read the Covert One series (the ones written by Ludlum, not the trash written by other authors to continue his series after his death). They are the only way to truly enjoy what he has given us."
