The movie, such as it is, the fifth in a four book series, does seem too much like it was thrown together to eek out the last drip of fans money for the franchise. True fans had too see what the outcome will be and this movie is all for that and nothing else. It takes over an hour to find out what how it ends and to get there you get, sorry to say, bored. The movie is slow, badly written, hardin is the only one wr get to follow for the majority of the film with only flashback clips reminding you who Tessa is until the very end. They really could have wrapped this all up if the fourth movie was just 20 minutes longer. All in all this is a sorry excuse for a follow up bad writing acting and pace.. please we explore you skip this one inlets you just want to have seen them all and do do do READ THE BOOKS.
After waiting a tear this is a disappointment but it has to be seen 2/5
