This is my final Twilight saga movie review. No doubt my friend Tina is already poised to type the words “Barf.”
I wonder if she is feeling sentimental, too.
I saw Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 last night at a special early screening. I was curious if director Bill Condon could pull together a fitting end to the series, since he had already used in my estimation all the ‘good stuff’ from the final book in Part 1.
The audience at the early show was pumped, but there was none of the mania of years past. I’d like to think we’ve all matured a little.
The film has, too.
The screenplay has a sense of humor. It was funny…on purpose. And at times also sweet and sad.
Part 2 also features vampire Bella. For all the critics who have slammed her character for being weak and codependent, come see her being seriously bad-ass. To everyone. All she needs is a bow-and-arrow and ‘luck forever in her favor.’
Most importantly, Part 2 is action-packed and full of surprises. I haven’t made this much noise watching a movie in ages — the vampire battle is shocking and strewn with death.
Even if you’re not a big Twilight fan, I strongly recommend you come see how it all ends.
