Exceptional! I had always loved the books so was excited to see how the movie would turn out; and I loved it. The characters were well developed and well acted. The story flowed well and at no point it felt sluggish or too long. I really appreciated that the female characters were fully developed people with a purpose. Also, despite the Green Aliens resembling characters from Star Wars, they were not cartoonish in any way. I found the story compelling, and the movie dramatic and entertaining. Five Stars.
