If You're A 14 Year Old Girl Who Loved Twilight You're Gonna Love This ...
But as a 50-something woman who wouldn't have watched Twilight as a teen ... not so much. Firstly I have to say that the 38,000 IMDb reviews on this movie (38K ? - WTF??!) are a testament to the industriousness and availability of the third world internet workforce
good show! As to this movie - it's a teenage wish-fulfillment fantasy
who's only ...ONLY... purpose is to place pouty lipped young hunks in front of the target audience (not that there's anything wrong with that). The movie is entirely derivative of The Hunger Games and places a young woman with special talents against a repressive society... yadda yadda... .
Look I could tell you the plot... I could tell the ending ... I could relate every word of the script to you and you wouldn't miss a thing - unless you're that 14 year old girl. There are no spoilers to this movie. None. This movie is pre-spoiled.
Make no mistake - this is not science fiction any more than Harry Potter or Twilight was. Don't see it if you enjoy sci-fi. This is NOT that kind of a movie.
I gave it two stars and I am being generous - third world workforce not withstanding. This is a wish-fulfillment fantasy aimed at young teenage girls and nothing more.
