Much more mature and original adaptation

Compared to the 1966 adaptation, this is a much more mature and gritty version. Farenheit 451 overall was a very good adaptation. Although it didn't follow the book's original plot, it still got the message through clearly that we shouldn't burn books. the film however has some F-bombs (7 in total, one combined with mother), a few used of s--t and a use of a--. Some scenes has brutal fighting, but no gore. Farenheit 451 has many tense moments, making this film not a good choice for sensitive viewers. But in conclusion, this film adapted the book in a new original and still effective way. If you have younger kids, the 1966 version is a better choice.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
