I haven't read the books but thought the storyline sounded interesting - a female castor (witch) would have to choose between the light or dark side when she turned 16, and along the way she falls in love with a mortal boy from her school. The witches theme reminded me of The Vampire Diaries at times, although TVD does it so much better. Overall I quite enjoyed the film, although it was a bit slow to begin with and I thought Ethan was a bit of drip so couldn't really understand Lena's fascination with him.

Emma Thomspon is particularly good in this and it was entertaining for a couple of hours. If there is a sequel I would watch it, as I was intrigued by the way the film ended.

I thought this movie was brilliant! From the acting, to the story, and the special effects were phenomenal! Some of the best effects I have seen from any recent films!
I didn't think it was anything like Twilight or The Hunger Games (Both films I like) and shouldn't be compared to them just because of the genre and the age group it is aimed at! Why film and TV about Witches (Or Casters) hasn't taken off I will never know, as personally they are my favourite supernatural beings!
From the opening scene to the very last, I was taken in and enjoyed every second of it! There has to be sequel WARNER BROS.!!!

Definitely one to watch!!

I loved all the books, they are brilliant.

I was really looking forward to seeing how the film went.

TBH I was a little disapointed. If i hadnt read the books i dont think i would have understood most of it, the story of lena and eathan wasnt explained very well and the fact they changed the whole 16th moon story really wasnt as good. nothing was explained very well at all. if they do thr next one i hope they do a better job

I went to see it in cinema, after reading the book.
I loved it. Macon (Jeremy Irons) and Lena were incredible. I actually didn't like Lena much in the book, but in this she was more likeable and nice. Emmy Rossum was a superb choice for Ridley.
Ethan was disappointing. They turned his character into a clownish, dim looking, red-neck. Sometimes he could be funny, but I think they overdid it. Most of the humour was introduced through him e.g. him falling over and being idiotic.
It's faster paced than the novel (a good thing- in the middle it was soo boring. Just him going on about his relationship with Lena. Books 2-4 are better) and more streamlined. They combined the characters of Marian and Ama. It worked surprisingly well.
I enjoyed the special effects, atmosphere, and setting.

This 2013 romantic supernatural fantasy begins when 15 year old Lena Duchannes arrives in the small town of Gatlin she quickly captures the attention of Ethan Wate. The two are drawn together but Ethan quickly learns that Lena possesses strange powers and their budding romance is threatened by her family's Dark powers, for upon her sixteenth birthday Lena must undergo the Claiming, a process that will decide her fate forever: Light or Dark, but can their love endure or will she succumb to the family curse.
A little slow at getting to the main theme, this soon picks up the pace and when it gets into its stride its a rollercoaster of special effects and family feuds. The acting is good, but Ethans character seems a little on the weak side, but that makes him all the more mortal against the others in the story. The plot also contains a few surprise twists that can generate their own mascara moments so beware.
The single disc opens to 5 trailers then goes to main menu offering play, set up [English 5.1 only, English subtitles], scene selection and special features [behind the scenes, deleted scenes and trailers]. With some dark themes and sinister special effects, this is a surprise 12 rating, out doing many 15 and even 18 ratings. The atmosphere is incredible but the overall theme reminds one of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ or ‘The Secret Circle’ you’ll almost certainly like this.

Teenager Ethan Wate is obsessed with his urge to finish high school and go on to college in order to leave the small town of Gatlin, South Carolina behind, until a mysterious girl begins to inhabit his dreams. When he meets Lena Duchannes, a newcomer who has just enrolled in his school, Ethan knows she is the girl in his dreams. Lena is rejected by the rest of her classmates for being the granddaughter of Macon Ravenwood, whom the town's superstitious residents consider to be a devil-worshiper. But Ethan gives her a ride anyway and they fall in love. Lena reveals to her new boyfriend that she is a witch, and that on her sixteenth birthday she will be claimed by either the forces of light or of darkness. She will remain in the light, but only if she does not remain in love with Ethan. To make matters worse, her evil mother, Sarafine, is casting spells to push Lena to the dark side. Ethan joins her in a search to find a magic spell to save their doomed love. Will the lovers succeed?

I enjoyed this film it was entertaining enough, though I understand many fans are unhappy with the adaptation.Good supporting cast ,the acting was good as well, and Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert had nice chemistry as Ethan and Lena. Of course, Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson, and Viola Davis gave great performances together. A nice little story about supernatural powers, good vs evil, love and the power of love. For those looking for a good fantasy movie with love, action, and funny moments, this is the film for you. It was good from the beginning to end.

Acting (On all accounts) 8/10 VFX (for what there was) 7/10 Costume & Design 8/10 (Supernatural Romance, forbidden love, did it fit well in the film?) 7.5/10

(My score) 7/10

Overall a decent little supernatural film. Enjoy!
