It was OK

I went to see this movie cause I thought I would enjoy it... I did enjoy it but not as much as I would have thought i would. At heart I knew it was a love story with some witch action. The love story is correct but don't feel natural kinda feels forced. There were some witch magic but very very rare in this film. They made it sound like the evil witch of the movie powerful but she was pretty pathetic at the end when the confrontation came. Overall this movie is so so. If you got nothing else to see then check it out... but wait till it comes out for rental.

One of the worst movies I have seen in a long while. No real story line and it was amazing they were able to fill so much time with nothing. Don't waste your time.

Extremely Disappointed

When I first saw previews for this movie I said "WOW! it looks awesome! I better read the book before I see it!" I was beyond disappointed to find out that the movie is NOTHING like the book. They changed characters, forgot characters, and flat out CHANGED things that happened in the book. I hope they don't make a sequel.

I want my money back

Ok I'm not usually one of those people that get upset over the book verses the movie... but this was a tragedy. It wasn't just "loosely based" on the book... they completely changed some of the key aspects and story line. If i were the authors I'd be very upset. The ending was totally different and even if i didn't read the book.... the movie wasn't really all that good. It was an epic fail all around. I wanted to walk out and demand my money back... several people actually did walk out barely half way through the movie. Where was Ethan's dad? The story about his mom? Marion Ashcroft doesn't even exist! And they say Macon is a dark caster? No... that is incorrect! The climax of the story fell completely flat... And I'm pretty sure Seraphine was the one who STABBED Ethan... he wasn't SHOT by Link. Complete trash...

I kept getting a sense of deja-vu. I even knew the ending; or close enough to it. I did not read this fabulous book mentioned in reviews. The movie was worth my time and money. Will I see it again or rent it? Nah. The special effects were tops. I would have loved seeing the southern version of the Addams Family house more and maybe it should have been a little longer. Thumb's up movie-goers.
