A review of the chocolate war film adapted from robert cormiers novel

Julia Simonyan P4 Ms. I can't see this being added to anyone's all-time favorites list, so why is it so popular? I'd be lying if I said my hatred of high school didn't taint my enjoyment of this book.

This a good movie with an exciting ending and good actors. I couldn't wait to leave. Honestly, Cormier did too good a job capturing the least favorite part of my life.

A few others of his have been made into movies, most notably I Am the Cheese and The Bumblebee Flies Anywaybut The Chocolate War remains a masterpiece both on the page and on the screen.

My three-star rating might've been a four. I loved and hated "The Chocolate War".
