I loved this! I haven't read the book yet, so I don't know how close the movie matched it, but I really loved it. It had a good flow, solid and even for non-reders reasonable to follow plot, with good action and drama. In addition, I think the charaters came across quite good as well, even if you don't get too much insight on some of them.
The acting wasn't totally flawless, but the story in itself is so good that I keep re-watching this over and over again. I'm a little addicted, but I admit that Theo James is 40% responsible. 😉 I already liked him in his minor role in Underworld - Awakening, and he's just such eye candy. The tattoo, too. I generally liked to get to see so much tatted skin! ^^
Thus, after being this in love with the film, I'm most definitively reading the books. The story hits all my dystopia buttons, especially since it doesn't seem too far-fetched. I'll try to get through them before the next movie comes out.
