I only read the sample, so based on it, I can't tell if it would make a good movie or not. Most people seem to think that it will.

"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?
I think it would be a great idea. I love to watch suspense movies and catch into the action that comes with solving crimes.

This would make a great movie if done right, I mean the plot has every element that can move a movie forward. Drama, Mystery and Kidnapping.

This book would make a good movie. The difficulty would be to present it as a movie with an original theme. It has many similarities to movies that we have already seen!

Books that involve really interesting characters are fun to consider for movies. I think to make this into a serious thriller would be great to see, and Bud could be the perfectly timed comedy to keep the plot rolling.

Movie is one way of telling a story, so long as it contains action and good plot. But reading some of your comments I believe it can make a fairly good movie

I have to say this storyline is a bit played out. But then again there was three Taken movies. Maybe it would be the type of popcorn average blockbuster that the crowd goes for because its easily digested and checks all of their clichéd movie expectations. I don't mean to sound condescending or bitter.

Most readers have rated this as a very enjoyable read. This would be a good movie especially for people who prefer movies over books.

I think it can make a good movie in the same genre.

I think it sounds like it would make a great movie. It has all of the necessary elements. I would definitely see it.

This is a good story for a movie but of course, a lot will have to be done which I hope won't water down the originality and authenticity of the story.

It has everything indeed. No element that would make it a good movie is missing. What is more fascinating is the way the characters are well developed. The subject matter itself, kidnapping, is also great for a movie.

This is equally true. The Taken movies were really interesting. Although in my opinion, every movie will alway have some slight difference that makes it distinct from ohers even in the same genre. I believe this one will be different too.
