Unfortunately, I was disappointed
I know that any movie won't be 100% like the book it was based on, and I really went to see it with an open mind and to be honest I enjoyed the movie and did not hate it at all. However, with a book like "after" and a writing like Anna's, I expected more details about the main characteres and how they developed feelings for each other, I really felt that it was rushed and fast. I mean, the book was a great material for a more detailed script that can, also, fit into a 2 hours movie. Don't get me wrong, I loved the movie and I loved all of the cast especially Hero and Jo and I really loved their chemistry, I just hoped somethings were different especially the next:
1- I needed to see more dialogues, because I put myself in the shoes of any other viewer who hasn't read the book. If anybody hadn't already read the books, not so many would understand how deep their relationship is, and they wouldn't understand the development of each character.
2- Although the soundtrack of the movie is one of the most amazing soundtracks I've ever heard, I just felt that there was too many songs during the movie, even more than I heard the characters actually talk.
3- the change in Hardin's character made him look like a sad teenage boy not the aggressive and Manipulative guy we knew in the books. Aggressive and Manipulative is wrong but this was him and the change in the movie mafe him a completely different person but with the same name.
Don't think I hate the movie, though, beacuse I definitely DON'T. Not at all. I'm just saying this because I hope, as many other people, to see more movies of the after series and I hope they'd be even better than the first one.
