It's funny, all these people bitching about whitewashing when it turns out the movie they're bitching about is about whitewashing (among other things).
Is it pretty? Absolutely.
Is it great? Of course not.
Is it as bad as they say it is? No, not at all.
A decent adaptation with several changes—some good, some dubious, some respectful, some circumstantially and thematically altering. Whether those changes are for better or for worse depends on your attachment to the franchise.
If the movie seems interesting to you, don't listen to the critics on this one. Go see it and judge it for yourself.
Full review tomorrow.
