PLEASE do this movie! I have never watched a set of movies... which you really need to watch together (at a length of more than 5 hours!!!)... that are nearly as long as their source material, the 1168 page novel. The movie is completely devoid of character development. The movie could be summed up as a The Great Gatsby meets The Economist. Most of the movie is just news clips talking about the unemployment rate, the price of oil, and socialist chicanery.
