Is 'Fahrenheit 451' worth watching?

HBO dropped "Fahrenheit 451" on May 12, and fans are praising the all-star cast. But others say the adapted film did not do the book justice. Ray Brandbury's original novel was released in 1953, but reportedly, the film did not hold a candle. "Fahrenheit 451" features Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon, but some say even their phenomenal acting chops weren't enough to make the film any good. Is "Fahrenheit 451" worth watching?

The Globe and Mail's John Doyle writes the film is worth taking a look at:

For all its anger and barefaced rage, this Fahrenheit 451 is a ravishing experience to watch.

But Flixist's Jesse Lab has shared harsh words about the film:

 I'm going to cut right to the chase with Fahrenheit 451 because it's the worst kind of movie to talk about. It's a boring movie. It's a movie with no bite to it, no edge whatsoever. Oh sure, it may be technically competent and follows an understandable plot, but the movie does nothing to actually make its source material stand out or shine. It commits the worst sin that an adaptation can do; it makes you doubt if the original book was any good to begin with.
