I'd say twice as good (the movie), trimmed and smoothed it. I've always had mixed feelings about the few books I've read by Grady -- Condor and its sequel, a PI novel he did -- like his plotting, but as with more than one reporter turned novelist, I find his writing a bit choppy over the long haul.
