For a person who didn't read the book, I would rent this movie instead of going to see it in theaters. It's not something I would buy but, I would watch again with another friend. The timeline of the movie was different than I though it would which made it a little more intresting.

I read the book before I saw this move and I'm glas I did. I took a friend with me who hadn't read the book and she kept asking me what stuff meant. I suppose you would get that with any book that's been made into a movie, but I think you really should read the book before seeing THIS movie in particular. Some of the acting was just ok, but overall I think a very elaborate plot was portrayed very well on the screen. Lead actress Saoirse Ronan did a stunning job playing essentially two characters. Max Irons and Jake Abel were great as the lead love interest and you could just tell there was chemistry between these three. So bottom line, I would recommend this to someone who has already read the book, just because you would understand the plot better and see how close it is to the book. I don't expect this to be anything as big and the Twilight books/movies were, but its a nice follow up from Stephene Meyer.

2 hours and 5 minutes of my life, that I will never get back. Had this been made before Twilight, there would have been NO Twilight Franchise, at all! No further review required.

I read the book, loved it and couldn't wait to see the movie. I enjoyed the movie and left the theater feeling refreshed instead of traumatized. If you like movies full of destruction, violence and explosions, this movie is not for you. It is more of an intellectual thriller with a little humor woven in. My tween grandchild also gave it a huge thumbs up.
