This first in the series isn't all that bad, but overall I found it less mature and misleading. Its too typical of Hollyweird to create a 'hero' which everyone defers to instead of acting in their own best way. I guess its too much to ask for a movie where the 'hero' is found in one's mirror.

This movie was a total surprise to me. I watched it only to see what all the fuss was about. I didn't read the book. The acting and writing were better than I expected, and the story was also more involved and thought provoking than expected. Overall I was pleasantly surprised (maybe because my expectations were so low for a YA book) at the complexity of the plot, the subplots, and the overall execution of the story. Now I want to read the books and see the other movies.

Terrible movie. I rented it thinking it was going to be good from all the acclaim and attention it received. It was a can. A stupid movie based on the exaggerations of reality TV shows.
