I say this for one reason - I am writing this blog after seeing the movie with no pre-conceptions of what it should contain or indeed - any element of the story within, something that after reading a few other reviews and chatting to a few 'in the know' - puts me at a slight disadvantage.
Those who are fans of the book (apparently) wont like this movie - I've heard it leaves loads of the story out and as such - makes a majority of viewers feeling cheated out of a great movie. The rest say the book is difficult in the early days (as is the movie) but the end is phenomenal - something I didn't get at all from my viewing so before you judge please remember - I've not read the book ;)
I'd like to say so many good things about this after the success of Twilight but it doesn't even come close. I thought the movie dragged on way too long and considering the only point of the story is to get the remaining humans to believe their story then it's extremely drawn out.
The end? Well, lets just say everyone seems to get what they want to I'm not expecting another trilogy here although I've been wrong before.
I sadly can't say this was a great all round movie. I mentioned how slow it was to get going and I know fans of the book will be disappointed so you probably wont go anyway - as for the remaining few that don't care either way - knock yourself out!
