Review:
This film is amazing, full of aventure, action and romance and the plot is brilliant. it is set in such a descriptive world and the idea of the secret remaining rebels and a race of overly trusting goody-goody aliens is just genius. I loved this film and was a strong fan of Wanda, even though she was an alien. Melanie was another striking character with a will that was so strong. i did dislike Jared though and favored Ian massively!

Rating of the Comparison To Book: 
***** 

Quotes:

 “Her name is Wanda. Not it.”

“We find her, we find the resistance.”

 “We could be taken at anytime. Any day, any minute. All we have is now.”

Rating:
*****
