what the others say


"This compelling, lightly satirical tale is that rarest of beasts: a Hollywood action blockbuster that is smart, taut and knotty."

Total Film

"A faithful adap, a grown-up teen movie and flaming good entertainment. The big test for the franchise lies ahead with the uneven second and third books. But on this showing, the odds are in its favour."


"As thrilling and smart as it is terrifying. There have been a number of big-gun literary series brought to screen over the past decade. This slays them all."
