I enjoyed it but I didn't read the book

My friend and her daughter have read the book so they were so excited to see this movie. I told them that the reviews said people who read the book would be disappointed. Well they were right! My friends did not care for the way the story was told in film. I thought the movie was okay but I thought the editing could be better. The storyline seemed disjointed. but the plot was good and loved the special effects. My friend and her daughter now question if they will see anymore of these movies. Maybe they(directors) should have done it in 2 parts. That way they could have stayed true to the book. Just a heads up that if you want to read the book wait till after you see this movie! LOL

Went and saw this movie with my husband on Valentine's Day, and was extremely disappointed. Hubby liked it, but he didn't read the books. I read all 4 books and I think that's why I didn't like it as much. The books are so much better, than the movie. I went and saw it a second time with my mom last night, and thought it wasn't that bad. Is it better than Twilight or Harry Potter? No. Would I buy the movie? Probably, since I have the books. Those of you who haven't read the books, please watch the movie, before you read them. You will be disappointed by all the scenes that should have been in the movie, but were cut out or not filmed at all.

I did not read the books and so I do not try to compare this movie to any preconceived notions from a book. The movie worked well as a movie.

Oddly reminiscent of recent vampire movies

I liked the story line, the special effects, and acting. I didn't care for the ending. It felt like it needed more. I will buy it on DVD, just not until it is on sale. Oh, this movie is great for 13+ years old viewers. I did take my 12 year old, but thought it was a bit risky in a few scenes.

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.
