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 :(

Highly Disapointed

I read the book before the premiere and was extremyl disapointed to find that i did not recognize the story line. You would think that the movie was a pre-qual almost. i mean one of the major notions of the book was that Lena and Ethan could communicate telepathically. In the classroom, Lena was supposed to be sharpening her pencil when the windows broke and nobody but her was really hurt. not to mention there were more incidents like the Winter formal. And what happend to the Sweet Sixteen Party concert. and Ethan knew about Link and Ridley. So really what the hell did i watch yesterday cause that was not Beautiful Creatures. as for the Critic comments. I agree the accents were terrible. No cratch that they were etrocious. But for the most part i like the acting/ I just wished that the director stuck to the realy story cause the book was fantastic and i look foward to reading Chaos, Darkness, and Redemption.

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.

VERY DIFFERENT from the book!

I didn't like the choices of actors for the characters of the book. I really didn't like that they "merged" characters - the housekeeper and the librarian! Ethan's elderly aunts, the dog Bo Radley, and Ethan's father were never seen. That doesn't even cover so many changes that the screenplay made in the story. I'd really like my money back on this one.
