Terrible movie! Read the books.
I watched this new AG movie solely for entertainment...to laugh at it! I knew this "sequel" to the books would be awful, and boy, was I right! Lea is a spoiled, rude school girl with a sweet older brother and as for the character setup, it was right on point. This is a very twisted story for AG and I was very much surprised at the weirdo but still creepy bad guys, the "leave it to adventurous Lea" theme, and the "remember what Aki taught you" at the climax. It was thrown together in a short amount of time and the whole thing seemed rushed. The scene in the beginning (taken from the first book Lea Dives In) was weak, poorly executed, and not like the books at all. The end was just awful. Lea seemed like a braggart and was never reproved for her attitude. She is NOT a good role model and just beware! Even though Lea is not my favorite GOTY, I would say that her books were not bad compared to this movie. If you really have to get involved in Lea, read the books, or better yet, buy the actual doll and products! This new "sequel" movie is horrible and not necessary at all! Just read the freaking books!
