This is actually a very surprising sci-fi movie and I for one like others wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it as its based on the novel by the same author as twilight, this is certainly nothing like twilight so rest easy, it has its level of romance of course in the story but it doesn't smother the story to the point of vomiting like twilight does, romance aside this is a beautiful looking sci-fi movie with an original concept, great locations and settings, and good looking effects, the cast is very good, Saoirse Ronan as usual steals the show and makes a perfect lead, a very beautiful actress with so many sides to her acting talent, she makes the movie very comfortable to watch, Diane Kruger is also amazing as the seeker who is trying to stop her, the villains are very stylish with their visually cool costumes and smart looking vehicles and gadgets, they really stand out against the surroundings where the movie is filmed. This is certainly worth checking out if you like a good sci-fi, it's not heavy on action but its well paced out, the bluray has great picture quality.

This is a really great film. Meyer's best by far. Well cast and very well done. Ignore the bad reviewers, some people like to watch a film just to pick holes in it

as usual the only people to find an amazing film rubbish is old people and book nerds,for everyone else this film is incredible and easily one of the best ever made.a million times better than the twilight rubbish wrote by the same person.this has emotion,humour,drama ,it has everything.i seen it at the cinema and as soon as the credits rolled i went on my phone to see when the bluray was being released ,thats how good it was.if there was any dissappointment its that it wasnt on longer.i highly reccommend it to everyone and just ignore the old person and book nerd giving it a bad review.whether your a 6 year old boy or 50 year old woman you will love this film and the girl who plays the lead character melanie as usual just blows our mind,she is incredible in every film,its worth buying just for her

I had read and enjoyed the book, but I did find this film very disappointing! For anyone that has read the book - don't bother to watch the film!

  If you're smart, you won't waste your time on this.

Despite some good production values otherwise the story is a bland, and rather repetitive thing.
It's on the level of Calvin Harris, Twilight and One Direction, if you're a teenage girl or a relatively stupid person in their 20's you'd probably also be entertained by this. But I implore you not to indulge in this mediocre tripe, go watch a masterpiece instead... say, Lawrence Of Arabia?
