What a fun film to watch! Jamie Campbell Bower and Lilly Collins were HOT playing off each other! The story line was good with many humorous moments . The special effects were great! The cast was put together nicely which made the acting great. I would highly recommend this film for the young and young at heart. (I've never seen Jamie Campbell Bower look as HOT as he does in this film!!!!!!!!)

Awful. Just absurdly awful.

Fantastically beautiful set pieces, completely incoherent storyline with no connective tissue between scenes, zero chemistry between the lead characters (or any of the characters at all), awful acting, mediocre special effects, and at least a few moments where Kimberly and I were like "We should have gone and seen Kick ***2." Huge disappointment, not even worth the price of a DVD rental. Felt like a WB channel production that got way bigger than intended. Even my girlfriend, who loved the series, was asking to leave the theater. Major disappointment all the way around. Avoid.

Nothing like the book

The movie itself wasn't bad, but if you read the book be prepared to be confused! Too many details are missing or diffrent and story lines out of order. If you have not read the book, it was enjoyable.

So I was totally expecting Twilight... One girl.. loves two guys.. Can't make a choice so she makes both of them insane all the while monsters roaming. Not the case, I enjoyed the movie. They didn't go overboard with the CGI, it had a touch of a love story but the whole movie wasn't based on that.. Which I loved. It had amusement, action, nothing too scary (can take the kids 10 and up perhaps) The book was good and this movie did what it was supposed to.. Appeal to the fans of the series. Also to screaming teenage girls and the middle aged women who forget their age and scream as well. I'd say if your bored and want something to do to hold your interest and kill time go on and go take a gander at it.
