Thanks to Twitter reviews I had high expectations for the final movie in the Twilight series. And boy were my expectations met.The movie followed the book surprisingly well from what I remember having read it soooo long ago. I kind of forgot what happened, but the movie quickly reminded me. Basically, the only thing I was looking for was the crazy twist ending that everyone on Twitter was talking about. The beginning was pretty hilarious what with Jacob and Renesmee, and Bella trying to hunt for the first time. I especially loved the little cottage they set up. You can tell how big of a budget this movie was. Bella’s closet was any fashionista’s dream closet. I also loved Renesmee’s room and the fact that there were bookshelves all over the tiny cottage. Perfect. The only thing I couldn’t stop staring at was the horrible CGI of Renesmee. She looked out of place, and you can really tell it’s not a baby, so my eyes would constantly stay on the baby instead of anything else. How distracting lol. Speaking of LOLs, I just couldn’t stop laughing at Aro’s brilliant appearance. His laugh is hilarious, and I thought he acted so well being insane as his character suggests. Wonderful acting!
The middle was trés boring..I have no patience sometimes..(Maybe I have a slight case of ADD?!?)but then FINALLY, the ending came around and I perked up. That ending was just intense. I was literally gripping the seat. And yeah I did NOT see that epic ending with a twist. I don’t think I was paying any attention, so when it happened I gasped out loud, just as much as the rest of the audience did. You can tell the ones who were shocked read the books, and the ones who stayed quiet didn’t. I kind of wished Stephenie Meyer wrote the book with the twist, now THAT would have been a better ending.
I haven’t read Breaking Dawn in years having only read it once, because the ending was such a killjoy, but I was wondering if the twist wasin the book. So maybe if I have any spare time, I will sit down and read the Twilight series once again.
If you strip out all the annoyances in pacing, plot, twists, and characters, it’s ultimately a love story. I am a true romantic at heart, and their story was indeed a roller coaster.
Well done Bill Condon (Director), and Melissa Rosenberg (Screenplay), and Summitt Entertainment, well done.
Lonnng part in the beginning, but what a wicked ending to finish the entire story
Hat’s off to the wonderful cast director who found a wonderful Renesmee, as well as Aro. Oh and the actor who will be playing Jace in City of Bones movie had more acting time, and he is definitely not who I pictured Jace to be, but what can you do..”
The locations were beautiful especially the meadow, but that CGI of Renesmee was completely fake.
