If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
Good films always raise compelling questions, whether the format is fiction or documentary fact.
A film with more than the usual spoiler issues. Talking about it in any detail feels akin to handing you a gift-wrapped present and saying, "I hope you like it -- It's a thriller about a diabolical secret experiment."
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
Even though I loved the movies, there were some really awkward moments in the first one. I'm glad that was cleared up. I only rated this 9 stars bc it's my least favorite of them all. I hate that Edward leaves. I've watched all of the Twilight movies at least 15 times a piece. When it comes to this one, I basically fast-forward through the entire middle/Jacob parts, and to the end when Edward comes back. Jacob (as an actor) doesn't show the same chemistry that Edward does with Bella, and it made me despise the middle 60 minutes. Lol
I usually don't write negative reviews, but I had to give my opinion on this movie. I had originally only watched parts of it, but my mom forced me to watch a huge portion of the movie. It was awful, just awful! I've never been a huge Twilight fan to begin with. The only reason I have any interaction with it is because of my mom, who is a die hard fan. I haven't read the books, but I've seen most of the movies. I only like the first one, and mainly because of the amazing soundtrack.There were so many things wrong with this movie. First of all, I cannot stand the disgusting CGI baby. Why would they do that? There is seriously no reason for it at all. And the fact that the baby from the very beginning is supposed to have an imprint with Jacob? Like maybe there is a possibility that she will grow up and fall in love with him and be with him? I find that weird and disturbing. I know that it's not supposed to be like that... But still... Also I hate how they try to make seem Bella all cool, strong, and tough now that she's a vampire. I find it really annoying. The acting isn't really that great and the jokes are nearly unbearable. And really, they can't tell Bella's dad that she is a vampire but they can tell him Jacob is a werewolf? Really? And Bella knew for many years as a human that they were vampires.
All in all, I recommend people watch the honest trailer on YouTube for this movie, it is so hilarious! It will really show you how bad this movie is. I even read some other reviews on this movie saying that Stephen King said this story was bad. I'm not a fan of Stephen King, but I know he is an excellent writer, so that's really saying something about how terrible this movie is.
You should really make an entire movie or series involving Jacob and Renesmee and their love and future children and make it good. :) please bring back the main characters and all the friends as well and then hopefully this will be the best movie ever. I would love to see more of Jake and more of bella and more of her daughter and Jake and their love and more of Bella and edward and their love. I also would love to see more of alice and jasper and emmett and Rosalie
I really enjoyed this. The story benefited a lot from real conflict this time; a wonderful change from the Edward-Bella-Jacob love- triangle that has dominated the rest of the series. And like all Twilights, it has both pros and cons: The dialogue is weak and the script is mediocre. Despite some awkward and very bad CGI – like the baby Renesmee - the cinematography is admittedly decent, and there are strong and ultimately gorgeous presentations of family, friends, and marriage. Although the film starts off slow, the conflict is stronger and the tension builds to satisfying conclusion. The acting is pretty much the same. Taylor Lautner is awful – reinforcing the fact that he CANNOT act to save his life – Robert Pattinson is very good (I was really impressed with his performance) and Kristen Stewart - now a gorgeous vampire - is actually rather decent; although NOT when she's acting angry or "thirsty", in which case she's inconsistent and comes across very fake. Unfortunately, Bella as a vampire is also completely un-relatable, and coupled with her frequent bad acting, she definitely isn't much of an improvement from her usual human self; although the one good thing is that she actually fights this time, and isn't such a damsel. The supporting cast are the same as always – nods go to Billy Burke for being one of the best things about this series – but the real highlight is the awesome international cast that make up the Cullens' vampire friends. Unfortunately, it's these good actors – including Michael Sheen and Dakota Fanning who play members of the Volturi - who get the small parts, yet they shine brilliantly whenever they are allowed some screen time. Undoubtedly, the epic end battle is the one thing that glows in this final Twilight. Essentially, it's exciting and emotionally gripping, with great acting from the supporting cast and Robert Pattinson. But despite being a great battle, it has flaws that most Twihards will probably miss, but anyone else not completely won over by the franchise will certainly not. The emotion is on point, thankfully, but the choreography is disgustingly stilted and slow, while acting from the leads (with a few exceptions) is frequently bad. Ashley Green – with the spotlight on her character Alice and her mate Jasper for a fair amount of time – acts shockingly badly with inconsistent, half- hearted emotion. This is very disappointing, considering the strength of her character and the fact that Alice's vampire husband gets killed; she simply should be delivering more. Unfortunately, this made me take Green's whole performance in the Saga into account, and conclude that she holds together a decent performance until emotion or depth comes her way; in just case, she fades out and comes across milky and halfhearted. The emotional scene with Jasper's death required a strong reaction, and she ultimately failed that one. The Saga does wrap up beautifully. We get gorgeous flowers, pretty words, and beautiful flashbacks to Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years"; our two gorgeous leads sit in the meadow and kiss with chemistry, finishing off the Saga perfectly. As a side note, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is literally telling us all to become vampires because heck, looks are all that matter and if it comes at the price of drinking blood, why not? I have to say they're off on that one, but becoming vampires is kinda not an option, so I'll stop worrying.
