I have to agree with the comment below me. I wasn't feeling like the movie, like I did Gatsby (GATSBY RULES!!!!) After reading the book, I could see the movie took way too much significant points and chopped it like a slab of meat. However, the movie was still made or viewers like us. 2/5 stars.

This movie was a poor adaptation of a poor book. With the exception of Halle Berry, the acting was pretty bad. The attempt at make-up wasn't good either. People appear the same from decade to decade. Basically, it is just a poorly made movie.
