Lovely Bones Not Murder-y or Rape-y Enough?

Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones premiered in London last night and, astonishingly, not everyone is as enthusiastic as Harry Knowles. Total Film and the Sun loved it, but the Guardian gives it two stars, apparently because it does not feature enough rape and murder: "[Lovely Bones] is so infuriatingly coy, and so desperate to preserve the modesty of its soulful victim that it amounts to an ongoing clean-up operation."
