Probably a miss cast of main character. Didn't connect with her at all. It was ok, enjoyed other characters in movie, it got boring but picked up, then kinda fell apart in one scene. Wait for on demand.

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 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if you read the books, prepare to be disappointed

they changed some key elements to continue with sequels, which i think they sabotaged themselves for. it was slow-moving, lacked real concrete plot in comparison to the books. even twilight had a better screenplay conversion the first time around, but it may be just me. ive been looking forward to this movie ever since they started filming last year and i was just disappointed by the screenplay as a whole. if you didn't read the books, you will probably enjoy it. the plot is JUST okay for the lamen person.

Liked the movie, but they took a lot of liberties with script

I enjoyed the movie. However, when I saw the movie I had never read the book and wasn't really sure what it was supposed to be about. I prefer to do things in that order. I have read the book since then. The screenwriter took a lot of liberties with the script, changing things that really didn't need changing. I'm just skeptical at how they will be able to move on to the sequels given the significant rewrite. All in all its an entertaining film, but for die-hard fans, they will be upset.
