I read the book many many moons ago and found it informative. Watching this first episode of the movie, I find it too scarey compared to some of to-day's goings on. Like the leading actress.

Almost completely faithful to the one-dimensional book. (Fortunately, the sex scenes are toned down, so we don't have to worry about a glorification of rape.) Unfortunately, by the time part two finishes we are only about halfway through the book, and the rest doesn't seem to have been made, so it's kind of pointless. Visually, the interiors are 1940s (when the book was written) while the exteriors try for slightly-in-advance-of-modern.

This DVD movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Philosophies and political statements aside - this is just a plain boring movie. The look and feel of the movie with the poor acting leads me to believe this should have been a TV special. I have never read the book - but I am sure that it is much better. I would not recommend watching this movie to anyone

Very good movie.
It has been 40 years since I read the book but it seemed true to the book.
I wish every politician would see it to understand why they need to get out of the way of progress. The same could be said of those in business [certainly true of government] who want everyone to be to 'equal' and equally share in the effort of those who want to work and move America ahead.
Unfortunately they probably read the book in college and forgot/ignored what they read.

Loved this movie! They did a great job following the book. I hope they keep up the good work on parts 2 and 3.
