Not quite the story the book told

Although the movie was visually pleasing it didn't quite follow the story line of the book. Scenes were created that weren't part of the book and important things from the book were not touched on. In the end, we looked at each other and said "What the he## was that?" If you haven't read the books you will probably enjoy this movie.

Where's the Book?

I have never been so disappointed in a movie. It strayed so far off the book, I was almost wondering if it was the same series. They left out main Characters & key points that were extremely important to the series of books. Even The mind reading bond between Ethan & Lena was gone....and where did that ending come from??? Very Very Very Sad movie version of the book :(

There were a few dissapointments. Many details from the book were missing, and even things that didn't happen in the book. BUT, I still fell in love with the characters. Ive read all the books and I'm not that picky about it. And for those of you who " walked out". In order to give a true critique of the movie, you should probably stay the whole time. No matter how "dreadful" it was. Which it wasn't... so if you've read the book or not, just go. And please stay the whole time so you can give an intelegent review, whether you like it or not.
