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.

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.

Meyer's teen bore-triangle has a mimetic quality, assuming the same degree of naval gazing self-interest as the target demographic.

Eclipse's adolescent roots continue to shine through but for once they're made to work in the film's favor rather than against it. It's competent and only rarely silly and considering the hole the series has been in that's quite a feat.

Perhaps the most watchable entry in the Twilight series so far, it's still saddled with the most cipher-like heroine of all time.

Certainly not awful, but the producer's dedication to Stephenie Meyer's drawn-out story creates a lumbering third movie that borderlines on downright dull.

It's interesting to see each film make Bella into an even bigger creep than previously imagined, with Eclipse turning the indecisive heroine into a mean-spirited provocateur unworthy of all the attention lavished on her.

... at least director David Slade pulls the film from the doldrums of the second film and sends the fur flying across the lush Pacific Northwest backdrops in the climax.

'Well, I am hotter than you.' This supposed reference to body temperature, uttered by werehunk Jacob to sparkly vampire Edward, is not just the funniest line in the film but a nice distillation of the tension that now drives the series.

Eclipse surprises with (much needed) improvement; the first real blockbuster of the franchise.

If the producers of Twilight were given permission to remake Casper ... they'd probably have his ghostly apparition dress in some three-quarter jean-shorts, just to keep his modesty intact. Somebody has to think of the children, right

La tercera parte en una saga exclusivamente para fans, debido a que, hay que decirlo, las actuaciones simplemente son medianas. Una cinta que se deja ver al menos en video.

Glavni sastojci formule su ostali isti - antipatični likovi, isprazne replike i klieji. Prilično naporno iskustvo.

What began as an enjoyably perverse fable of teen romance and chastity has dwindled, by this third instalment, into a sorry, soppy saga.

More action, more characters, a tad more humor and some interesting backstories help but do nothing to improve upon the series' fatal flaws.

Eclipse reinvigorates the Twilight saga, giving the fans what they want as well as being good enough to keep casual viewers interested.
