...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.

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

I'm a massive fan of Stephanie Meyers books. This was by far her best book written and the movie DESTROYED it! Yes it stayed true to the story for the most part, leaving some things out as most book-movies have to do. But the intensity of the 'love triangle' was so ridiculous that it had my friends and i laughing. The use of inspirational, orchestral music was so over done that I felt like i was watching a trailer the whole way through. The script was so bad that there was no way for the actors to make the conversations look good, or in any way realistic and there was absolutely no (intentional) comic relief to scene after scene of intense conversations. I give it a 2/10, one out of respect for Stephanie Meyer, and one because the guys were hot.

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.
