A feast of ripe dialogue and bloodsucking action.

Winking, self-aware camp that eventually explodes into a craptacular of the highest order.

If you're looking for a review that will tell you the movie is terrible and its fans are idiots, I'm afraid I must disappoint you.

The film's long middle is still a slog, but the beginning and ending are loud and weird enough to supply solid entertainment.

Seven Days

In "The Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn, Part 2," Bella gets a much-needed fire in her belly. Her wimpy former self is suddenly a badass.

I may not be a doctor but believe me there is no way that Stewart and Pattinson would ever produce a baby this ugly.

Audience Reviews for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Disappointing ending as predicted which Bill Condon can't return the magic and the charm that the first Twilight had.. And the battle was a little nonsense since it didn't actually happen, maybe Meyer's the one to blame about this. But the developing story of Renee is also ridiculous.. But overall, I'm just glad that this movie finally meets its ending..

Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a mediocre end to a mediocre series.100 minutes may seem like a brief run time for a story of this caliber, but it definitely feels longer. Supposedly, the first 75% of the film serves as a buildup for the massive finale, but it turns out to be tedious and uneventful. Then the finale comes and it is a tad underwhelming.The violence is toned down brutality with no blood in sight, while the CG is passable. There is a bunch of it in the finale, but epic the battle is not.For the most part Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are stale and monotone. Taylor Lautner is a little better. Ashley Green and Martin Sheen are the lives of the party, but they can only do so much.The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 brings closure as needed. Nothing more. Nothing less.

A really good series, and an absolutely perfect ending to the movie franchise. I don't care what the critics, or those lamebrains at the Razzie awards, say...the Twilight series have been very enjoyable. I enjoyed all the movies immensely, and I am sorry to see it finished!
