I really enjoyed seeing this movie! It was exciting and funny how this creature was trying to understand the human's life. Very interesting home the humans created for themselves to hide from the creatures. I am glad the movie ended with a happy ending for everyone!!!
Stephanie Myers did a great job creating the story to this movie. The desert scenery was beautiful. Not a movie for under 12 because of the romance and the conflict between the two species. A must see for those who love action with a twist of romance and for the possibilities of another unknown species coexisiting with humans.

The parasite watches a man die a horrible death from cancer in the book rather than acknowledge that she can easily steal the cure: totally removed from movie
The parasite watches her kind and their human hosts die rather than show how to safely remove parasites from humans: vaguely hinted at in the movie, no development of the moral issue.
Big part why is a commercial success is setting up an ethical way for a middle aged man to have an underaged girlfriend.

...like this movie, but when you have a certain level of expectation in terms of plot and character depth you'll only be disappointed with the Twilitization of any sci-fi story. From the absolutely annoying human mind talking to the alien who possessed her body, to the huge holes in storyline, it just ended up being a photographic experience that would have best been seen in super-fast-forward.

I took a gaggle of giggle tweens to the premiere last night. That seems to be the demographic. The film itself is "meh" as a work of art. The scifi effects were surprisingly unimaginative. There was really no climax to the film, just lots of love triangle dabbling. I did not read the book, although my daughter loved it.
It is a pretty innocent film, although the previews that played before it were, in some cases, terrifying!
Thanks, Hollywood, for another try. This time it probably meets the mark for the maturing Beiber set. Only.

There were so many bits missing, so many story lines cut out, so many things changed it wasn't close to its book, I know the writer did twilight too but this was clearly either a vehicle for its star or just trying to make money on the back of twilight, it failed at both.
It was so poorly acted the actors couldn't have mad it on daytime TV shows, it was a real shame. I rushed the book to get the best out of the movie and I wish I hadn't..i could have walked out and not cared if it got better but I stayed till the end of this sleep fest example of what not to do in a movie
I didn't care if Melanie ever came back out and as for jared and ian, only a mentally deranged girl would fall for either, they had no decernable character worth falling for, I expected the normal sorry to say chick flick of twilight but I got something youd wish someone had sunk their teeth into your neck and not brought you back...the book was good, the movie was sadly lacking in eve
