It could a full action packed and thriller movie. It has nice scenarios that could be interesting to watch.

This would definitely be a good movie, but I just hope that too much of the actual story isn't cut out.

I think it would make a great movie and it would have the advantage of reaching more people than just readers because, unfortunately, not that many people like to read. And I´d like to think that the social questions that Gariffo raises in this book could reach more people and make us think about the brainwashing that we live. Although, it would be kind of ironic, to talk about brainwashing using a mass media resource, but it would be the means to an end,

Anything would make a good movie if they put the effort into it, but with Hollywood's obsession with existing franchises, they'll probably put unrealistic expectations on it, then claim it as proof people don't want original films when it doesn't meet those expectations.

Absolutely! And I would love to see a prequel of how the Supercorporations were developed as well, that would be fascinating to watch. The action was so thrilling and detailed, I feel like it would be easy to turn into a screenplay.

I was thinking the same thing. A trilogy! I'd love to see a World, Incorporated movie, as well as the prequel that might connect the dots a little bit more with present time and focus on the corporations. Maybe if I keep talking about movies I won't get scared it could all happen.... :shock2:

Exactly what I was going to say about futuristic thrillers seeming to be the flavour of the season!! And this has a good plot and a good story- so why not!

I think a movie would work well. I agree that movies reach a much larger audience, and it is sometimes more impactful to have the visuals and sound for people who process visually. I also kept thinking as I was reading through some of the scenes with tech that seeing it all in motion would be really effective, as the time period isn't so far in the future that the tech in unimaginable.

It definitely can be a movie! I actually hope someone would like to create it soon. I love post-apocalyptic books and movies and I know I'm not the only one. The only thing that worries me is that they change the story sometimes to make it better for the screen.

Yes, I think it was Cloud Atlas that was a great book, so badly adapted to the screen because of the problem you mention. I guess it is difficult to cover as much territory as is in a book, in a two-hour film.

It could be a good movie. Be nice to have something original based on a book, considering all they seem to be doing lately is remaking everything or having a million sequels.

Despite the fact that I haven't read the book, I support those who feel it can make a good epic movie.

I don't think so. But I wasn't all that thrilled with the book. So I will be unlikely to go the the movie if one is made.

I agree with the opinion that if this book is adapted into a movie, it will be a big hit. But I fear that some of the essential parts of the book may cut because of the short length of the movie.
