My Dad and I saw this movie on opening day and it was terrific! Even my Dad enjoyed it. I've read the book and I thought that the movie was right on track with it. This movie has action, humor, sexiness, smarts, an excellent soundtrack, and (of course) some blood sucking. What more could you ask for?
Amazon.com already has this movie available for pre-order. I'm headed there now. I can't wait to watch it again. I definitely recommend this movie.

This movie was much better than I thought it would be. I took my 14 year old daughter and she loved it. Lots of action scenes all the way through.

I really enjoyed this move. I have been waiting for it to come out since the rights were first bought. I read all of the books in the series and loved them, but I was little apprehensive about the movie after seeing some of the previews. The movie follows along with the book pretty well; there were some minor changes but that is to be expected. Like I said, the changes were minor and all of the important stuff remained the same. The cast was great. I wasn't sure about who they cast as Dimitri or Lissa, but both grew on me and I came to love them both. Zoey Deutch was fantastic as Rose and Dominic Sherwood as Christian was awesome. The chemistry between the cast members was real and just great. The movie was awesome and I would love to see it a second time.

So the movie was definitely good, and it went along with the books but it seemed to jerk from one scene to the next in a matter of seconds. It got kind of confusing because of how it went from one scene to the next and it was annoying that when a scene got interesting it seemed to cut off. I think the next movie, if they make one, needs to be longer scenes and it needs to explain what shadow kissed means. Also some parts that were in the trailer were definitely not in the movie. That also seems to have been parts of the movie where the blanks were. Do go see it but just be ready to take a semi jerk ride! It was good though don't get me wrong just when you go see it you'll get what I mean.

They followed the events of the book closely, but they did change/rearrange things. The meaning is still the same but things are gone about a little differently than in the book. However, they executed it perfectly and the casting is spot on. Zoey as Rose is unbeatable. Danila as Dimitri...he brings this BA god to life in the most incredible way. Everyone did amazing!
