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.

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

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

Manages to transcend the soapiness of its predecessors and work quite well as an engaging story about sacrifice, romance and, interestingly, the inner conflicts of the undead.

Was two hours' worth of such repetitive and overheated emotional triangulation really necessary--even for the demographic that'll be breathing hard over every frame?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third outing in the supernatural saga of high romance and higher camp, finally shows its fangs with a dazzling display of imagery to go along with a hurried sense of danger.

The film is a swirl of raging hormones, bitter jealousies and the aching grip of feelings that have yet to be physically consummated.

brings a smoother, more confident style and tone that balances the romance and the violence in a way that gives the film more weight.

The good news is that the mood is a little lighter than in New Moon, which was full of teenage angst and suicide attempts. Edward and Bella even get to smile now and again and there's the occasional funny line.

It's a definite step up from New Moon and might even leave the harshest critics just a teeny bit excited about what's in store come the two-part Breaking Dawn... The countdown to November 2011 begins...

More pouting, mumbling and gazing into the distance, mainly. But hey. NOBODY does it better than these guys.

All three actors are comfortable with their characters, and Slade finds the right balance of action and romance; the story feels organic. Some of the dialogue is earnest and silly, but the core strength of the Stephenie Meyer novels is here: the battle be

Not as good as Twilight, not as bad as New Moon, Eclipse is decent teen cinema that will thrill fans and mollify their accompaniers. Can't wait for the caesarean-by- teeth in the next one...

The franchise has finally produced a movie that all will be able to enjoy -- even hard-done-by boyfriends who've been dragged kicking and screaming to see it.

It's a nice mix of comedy and action, especially with the running gag of Jacob appearing shirtless early and often so Jacob fanatics can howl about his hot abs.

Eclipse isn't afraid to poke fun at itself and there's a fair amount of self-referential humour in the film, something that was painfully absent from Twilight and New Moon.

By far the best Twilight film to date, Slade should satisfy the fan base while opening up the series to more sceptical viewers...
