Great best movie but they should make a second one
I never read the book so maybe that helped with expectations. I thought it was well done. More of a love story and not overdone with special effects.
I loved the movie when I went to see it, but I would advise to see the movie before reading the book or you will be horribly disappointed.
Not a horrible movie, but a bit predictable and boring. A few funny bits.
Well done liked it and was entertained.
The only reason I didn't give it one star is that SOME of the casting was well done and the scenery was lovely - I am not a person who thinks that an adaption has to be exactly like a novel - but usually if a book is adapted to screen it's because of it's success - sooooo many things that made the novel as success were either not explained well or completely changed around. Sorry - not a fan of this one which is a shame because it could have been a great series of movies - and I doubt that Beautiful Darkness will be made into a movie.
2 hours I will never get back.
i'm not much into witchy-magicspell-romances, but enjoyed the movie nevertheless. i've zero interest in any book(s) it may be based on; so as a stand-alone story, it does fine. obvious contradiction in notions of mortals being hardly any different from 'non-mortals' (immortals?) that both age and prone to death and not 'ageless forever young' [quite absurd]. hollywood loves to distort 'southern' christians [gets old], but it's most likely from the book anyway.
The movie itself was quite good, but the problem was that it strayed quite far form the book, which was very disappointing. Several important characters and several key pieces of the first book - which lead into the second and third - are missing.
Watched the trailer and couldn't wait to see the movie went to theatres to see it on Wednesday at 10pm ... I hate romantic movies like Nicolas sparks, hated the twilight saga, was kinda skeptical about this movie but this movie took my breathe away, the ending was amazingly perfect !!! The love was so pure and real. The power of family and innocence was incredible. By far better then the twilight saga.. I think it's because the characters are more like outcast and twilight had models for actors, emmy rossum ... so gorgeous btw lmaoo .. Can't wait for the next 2 movie, for those that watched it .... LENNNNNNAAA! Lmao I cried at that part..
This movie sucks, just like all other Paranormal Romance Movies. If you want an actually romantic movie, this is not it. Try The Lucky Ones or something, idgaf.
Deviated from the book almost immediately. Very dsiappointing.
I thought it was the perfect balance between creepy, romance, and a little action!
Terrible! Deviated from the book in the first 5 minutes. Lack of character development and do not understand why one important character was o tired from the movie!
Excellent Movie - I really enjoyed the whole movie. Great dialogue.. had me laughing.
More teenage hokum with a gothic spin.
