Would "The Face of Fear" make a good movie?

Post by Jsovermyer » 01 Dec 2018, 14:50

"The Fsce of Fear" is a thriller with a daughter kidnapped, a father who would do anything to rescue her, and detectives who work hard to solve the case. I think it has everything needed for a good movie. What do you think?

Definitely yes. Actually I too thought about posting this topic, but you were ahead of me

I think the plot has potential for a good movie adaptation. However, reading a simple plot synopsis like that automatically makes me think of the movie "Taken." I think that as long as it's done originally and doesn't come off as a "Taken" knock-off, it could make an incredibly good movie.

I agree, it does sound very much like Taken! But it's definitely a premise that would make a good movie.

As far as I have read the sample on the Amazon, I have not pictured it in my mind. The narration style was fictional( that I like) and not too much action packed, sorry I don't find it fit for a movie.
Maybe I could relate it if I had read it fully.

Yes, Ido think that it would make a good movie. In fact, if you replace the role of the father with that of a sister, you would have the script for a 2014 movie called Gone.

As I always say: Every book is a movie in the mind of all readers. So why not make it a real one?

Yes. This story would certainly be a thrilling movie.

Yes of course it can be adopted in the form of a movie. It is a good thriller story having the actions about murder mysteries so it should be given the form of a movie. Although all the murder mysteries can be converted into the movies but this book is best for the movie construction.

The plot of the novel is quite intriguing, and it has all the chances to be a great movie.

Though I can't read horror books. But I'll lyk watching its movie. For the question: can this book be good for movie? I can't say that because I have read the book.

The plot of the book is impressive, movie adaptation won't be difficult. And it'll make a good movie.

I only read a few pages of the sample, so I can't really say, but I enjoy thrillers and crime movies so, maybe :D
