The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)



Critic Consensus: Stuffed with characters and overly reliant on uninspired dialogue, Eclipse won't win The Twilight Saga many new converts, despite an improved blend of romance and action fantasy.

Critic Reviews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

All Critics (234) | Top Critics (43)

This third "Twilight" film eclipses its predecessors but its anti-climactic story and its melodramatic tendencies still hold it back."

Edward is cold and controlling: the archetype of an abusive partner and Jacob just acts like a rapist in training, he keeps trying to kiss Bella against her will.

[For] "Eclipse," it was easy to go through the list of old complaints and check them off one by one as the film progressed, including a story that leads absolutely nowhere.

Like Bella, non-fans have a choice, and making a choice to stay away may save one some bewilderment.

Full Review… | February 6, 2012

This may be Slade's film but it's Summit's franchise, so any individuality he might wish to imbue in Eclipse comes a distant second to the needs of the series at large.

It is not exactly praise to call 'Eclipse' the best film in 'The Twilight Saga' to date.

Audience Reviews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse


Eclipse is uninspiring and yet more action-based than its previous two installments. Though the action brings it up a step, the rest of its direction brings down further to the trenches. 2.5/5

I choose to wait until they arrive on TV, but I have watched the first three Twilight movies. From the story point of view, I preferred Twi1 and Twi2 over Twi3. Twi3 didn't add much. We always knew that Bella was torn between Jacob and Edward, but that she would choose Edward. I guess by getting the vampires and werewolves to work together, they can keep both sets in the last two movies.
