Masich Review!: I enjoyed this Movie, it a is as normal as any other Japanese movie..of the same genre category that is^^. I honestly do not understand what the fuzz was all about? Yes it is different then the Manga and/or Anime, yes Ciel has been switched with a other person and is a girl. Why do people keep comparing adaptions with its original source? In this case and example the manga. Yes it does follow a different story then that it is based on, But it's not written in stone that it should be! As for me, I base every single version on its own. Manga, Anime, Live-action. Each of them should be rated on its own. same counts as for what I do with a lot of Animes based on a manga, of course I feel confused for the 1 being different then the other, but you still have to see it from its own side.
that will be all^^, I myself give this movie a 8 out of 10. Do not compare adaptions with other adaptions or other sources, Please see them as individuals.
