Ech. They went and changed it into standard Hollywood muck. Brad Pitt saves the wife and kiddies and he's the ONE MAN WHO CAN SAVE US ALL!!!!
Did those bozos even read the book?
PS, it occured to me that Paul Redeker was the savior of the world in the book, but he sure didn't do it by being an action hero and Hollywood wouldn't touch that story with a ten foot pole.
