Trailer not representative of the actual movie

First off if all you know if this movie is the Trailers, go learn a bit about the movie before you watch it or prepare to be disappointed as I was. That being said, it wasn't a bad movie. It was a fairly good teen romance movie all things considered, what it was not was a fun action filled magical romp.

Entertaining And Unique.

Not all books translate well into movies. From what I've read and heard, this is the case with this film. I think what those avid readers fail to grasp is that with a book the author has a vast, almost unlimited, canvas upon which to paint a story, but with screenplays, it's a 110-120 pages of action and dialog. If it's not on the page, it's not on the screen. Therein lies the a difference between books and films. Long, rambling setups in books reduced to dialog, visualization unique to a reader becomes one size fits all for a viewer. So don't go in comparing this movie to the book or likely, as with others, you'll be disappointed. Instead, experience it as a play and you'll have a much different perspective. This is a good film, not a great one. It's populated with decent performances, excellent effects, a good story and some fresh and promising young talent...well worth the price of a ticket. See it. You won't be disappointed.

I remember watching The Hunger Games and thinking, wow, they did not stick with the source material and missing all the important stuff. Compared to Beautiful Creatures, that movie was a masterpiece. As a fan of the Castor Chronicles, I have to say DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE. If you loved the books, you will HATE this movie. I know no book to movie adaption will ever be like the book. But this movie didn't even have the essence that made Beautiful Creatures such a good book.The direction is awful. The script is HORRIBLE. Just. don't see this movie. These people don't deserve your money.

I enjoyed the book, the movie is HORRIBLE: poor representation of the best seller. to many changes. From start to finish the movie leaves out and changes to many details that makes it exciting, and lacking in special effects, I should have stayed home and read the second book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
