The movie was exactly as I had imagined it would be. It was "spot on" with the vision of the book. I very much enjoyed the movie and felt a real connection to the characters. Uncle Jeb was perfectly played by William Hurt. Stephanie Meyer finds a way to make what should be the bad guy a sympathetic figure, not only the main character, but the "souls" in general. Not much more I can say. My absolute highest recommendations for this movie.

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.

I read the book several years ago and did not care for it particularly. When I heard it was to be brought to the screen I was surprised this particular book would be chosen. A book that so much takes place in thoughts rather than words just didn't sound promising. I went because I am a big fan of Max Irons and Jake Abel and hoped to see they had gotten roles in a great movie. They were worth seeing it for but wish they had been in it more. The whole small male cast was good. The problem with the two entities in the same body was as much a problem as I thought it would be. Confusing at times. It wasn't a bad movie but other than the actors I did not enjoy the story. The humor that was brought into it at times was a bit out of place but it made me smile. I did get teary toward the end with Wanda and Melanie so it did make me care.

if at best this is a science fiction movie that not everyone will like but compared to twilight its not that bad. if fact i would also say some people who see this will absolutely miss the point in what going on in this movie. it all depends on your attention span. in a way i rather see this as a tv series then a movie.
