I'm a bit ambivalent about it, to be honest. I really enjoyed the book as a kid, and still like it. It has a lot of potential as a movie (why hasn't this happened before?), even if the subject matter might be a bit dark (given that the major characters are kids thrown into very non-kid situations).

But in the last few years OSC has really gone off the deep end, in my opinion, and I'll have a hard time supporting anything he does in the future -- including this movie. My guess is that I won't bother seeing it, and won't really regret it.

Now *there* is a series that I'd like to see in a movie. Not sure a movie could do it justice (although my thoughts on this have changed a bit after seeing some of Game of Thrones), but definitely a good read.
