I guess I am the lone dissenter so far (did I even spell that right?). I did not read the books, so I saw the movie without any prior knowledge of them. I knew the premise, but that was it. I thought it was okay, but not great. My brother felt the same. He also hasn't read the books. I am reading the first book now (I'm only about a quarter of the way through). I'm enjoying the book much more than the movie.
I totally agree with this. I also did not read the books but knew the story line. The movie was just ok - kind of predictable.
I also had a young girl sitting next to me who apparently had read the books because 30-45 seconds before each major scene, she would duck down in her seat and say "OMG, OMG, here it comes".
