Saw it. Was alright. Not worth rewatching though. VERY predictable. Especially the constant twists at the ending. I kept muttering what was gonna happen next and making my date (and other people around me) laugh. It really wasn't very impressive. A good movie and that's about as much credit as I'll give it. Nothing remarkable. I have not read the books and probably won't. Nor will I attend any sequels to this mediocre big budget slop festival.
I can't even count how many times I've muttered "What a load of bullshit" during scenes in movies that are intended to be dramatic or emotional and had people around me burst into laughter.
