Read the book and loved it!

I loved the movie. I read the book a few years ago and was wondering how they would do the internal voices as most of the book was in Melanie/Wanda's thought conversations and memory revealing. I went with 3 people that did not read it first and one that did. Seems you probably enjoy it more if you read the book because you understand the story better, but the 3 that did not read it enjoyed it too. My son just didn't like that there wasn't a lot of action, he's 12 :) and wanted to see GI Joe. Overall an entertaining break from the everyday movie. I have been recommending it to my friends! I would say GO

...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

See the Movie First

The problem with most movies adapted from books is that the movie can't possible include as much detail as the book. Therefore, those who read the book first are always sorely disappointed come movie time. I didn't read the book first, so I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. This story doesn't provide any explanations about how the aliens got here or how they managed to take over the earth. It also doesn't explain why some humans could survive implantation and others couldn't. But, it does do an excellent job of presenting another take on the idea of being "of two minds." And it places both familial love and romantic love on high pedestals. The actors are fun to watch, do a good job with their parts and are very likable. The story is well paced, humorous at times and makes sense! This is a feel good movie that also has plenty of action. There was only one part that made no sense at all to me, because the actions of the characters were guaranteed to lead to the result which occurred.
