I went to see this movie cause I thought I would enjoy it... I did enjoy it but not as much as I would have thought i would. At heart I knew it was a love story with some witch action. The love story is correct but don't feel natural kinda feels forced. There were some witch magic but very very rare in this film. They made it sound like the evil witch of the movie powerful but she was pretty pathetic at the end when the confrontation came. Overall this movie is so so. If you got nothing else to see then check it out... but wait till it comes out for rental.

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.

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.

Ok I'm not usually one of those people that get upset over the book verses the movie... but this was a tragedy. It wasn't just "loosely based" on the book... they completely changed some of the key aspects and story line. If i were the authors I'd be very upset. The ending was totally different and even if i didn't read the book.... the movie wasn't really all that good. It was an epic fail all around. I wanted to walk out and demand my money back... several people actually did walk out barely half way through the movie. Where was Ethan's dad? The story about his mom? Marion Ashcroft doesn't even exist! And they say Macon is a dark caster? No... that is incorrect! The climax of the story fell completely flat... And I'm pretty sure Seraphine was the one who STABBED Ethan... he wasn't SHOT by Link. Complete trash...

I kept getting a sense of deja-vu. I even knew the ending; or close enough to it. I did not read this fabulous book mentioned in reviews. The movie was worth my time and money. Will I see it again or rent it? Nah. The special effects were tops. I would have loved seeing the southern version of the Addams Family house more and maybe it should have been a little longer. Thumb's up movie-goers.
