I'm not a Twilight Fan, or a Twilight hater, I just don't care. I didn't like the first film, it wasn't horrible but it was just so boring. Then I saw the second one, and was surprised, it wasn't really good, but it was entertaining at parts. Then Eclipse, I would actually call that film OK. So you see where this is going, each film got progressively better, so I was hoping that this film would go into the category of pretty good. It didn't.
This film takes a step backwards, I'm not sure if it's better or worse than the first one, but it's pretty lame. It's kind of sad because there were actually some pretty cool things in this movie. Maybe it was just me, but when Bella was getting ready to walk down the aisle, it kind of looked like she was having second thoughts about marrying Edward and literally throwing her life away, that was pretty cool. The action scenes are fun, but there aren't enough of them. And Bella cares about someone besides herself, that alone makes gives this film a couple of points. And the ending shot was pretty cool.
But as for the bad, there is not enough material for a two hour movie. There are so many scenes that have no purpose and just drag on for too long. Also, the acting is bland. I actually like the three main actors, I've liked Kristen Stewart and Robert Paterson in other movies, and I think Taylor Lautner might be able to act, but the dialog they are forced to speak is just awful. Edward keeps referring to his child as a thing. And there are some incredibly stupid moments, including a scene where the werewolves communicate telepathically. Guys, that may work in the book, but in a movie, that just looks stupid. And someone pointed something interesting out, if Edward is dead, that means he has no blood, thus he can't get an erection to get Bella pregnant.
Overall this movie was incredibly forgettable. It had some interesting parts, but it was pulled down by too many scenes that had nothing to do with the plot. Bland acting, awful dialog, and way too many stupid moments. Let's just hope part 2 will be better. From what I hear (I didn't stay after the credits), Dakota Fanning is supposed to be the villain of the next movie.
