I thought I would give this movie a whirl because it became available for download so I thought free aside from the bandwidth cost why not. I didn't want to see it as soon as I saw it was from the producers of Twilight. I should have went with my first instinct it was horrible Twilight first fucked up the vampire image so now they're taking a shot at another genre which they equally ***&^ over. Right from the start it has a Twilight feel and a super annoying lead girl that fills you in with the goings on. From here it gets worse and worse until you feel you are watching a documentary on cheese. Just like Twilight taking everything masculine,beautiful yet horrific away from vampires it strips everything of value from the invasion genre. forget scifi, horror, action , or adventure when you are explaining the genre its a teen romance movie all the way the level of intimacy and romantic content are not even mature enough to appeal to adults as a romance. Sickeningly bad.

No loudly bracket of machinegun bullets firing. No massive artillery barrages to harbor "Shock and Awe" to the enemy. No they sneak in and take your bodies over. The planet well ....it is not as loud as it was.
If you want a movie where the plot twists have young love on the various rocks, aliens inhabiting and using your body. It turns out that humans are a decided problem. This is a movie worth the cost.

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 had high high hopes for this movie because it is one of my all time favorite books. I'm obsessed with it- read it like 5 times. The movie was just awful and I nearly left. Boring music, poor choices for actors and actresses (apart from the seeker), and overall just a bad film. It was trying to be the next teenie bopper twilight, but I even enjoy those movies more. It didnt even begin to develop the characters in a way that people can connect with and enjoy. Anyway, I was just let down that the butchered the movie of my favorite book.

First of all, if you haven't read the book then you are probably going to see the movie because it based on a book by Stephanie Meyer, who also wrote the Twilight series...do not expect a story similar to Twilight. Even book readers had a hard time switching gears into something other than Twilight. This movie is more Sci-Fi, but still has the drama and love story. If you are a reader, this is a good read - you just have to not compare it to Twilight and have imagination. Admittedly, I do wonder if someone who hasn't read the book will fully understand the movie.
If you have read the book, you will find that (like most movies made from books) they left some things out. There were some things that I wish they had put in (not going to spoil by giving examples). However, the movie is still good and well cast. The graphics and set designs are really good.
Bottom line, I say GO!
