The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is easily the best film in the series, thanks to stylish direction, a good sense of tone, and decent acting. It also has an infuriating ending that reinforces the worst of this series.

As for the millions that have had to suffer through this series, we celebrate the end of one of the worst franchises in cinematic history and are thankful that we no longer have to dread more of this soap opera that should have been cancelled long ago.

From bottom of my heart thank you. And thank you to Bella, Edward and Jacob for letting us laugh, cry, debate, and pick sides while you three bastards stare at each other.

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 is an unredeemable waste of time and money. Like the vampire characters it's utterly lifeless and yet by that monstrous twist of fate - it exists.

A reminder that the journey has been a murmur rather than a saga, and the final plod is no exception

Let's forget that any of this ever happened.

Unequivocally the worst of the lot ... The final instalment of a five-film franchise has all the emotional weight and impact of an episode of Entourage.

Between its farcical script, soulless relationships and waxwork performances, this is a final chapter that will please only the most devout fans.

The Twilight Saga has finally ended, not with a triumphant roar but with the self-satisfied mumble of an inconsiderate lover rolling over and breaking wind as they fall asleep

The plot moves at a glacial pace and just when you think it's starting to get interesting, you discover that it's going nowhere.

Fans will find a lot to love with Breaking Dawn Part 2, both expected and unexpected, and critics will find a non-stop checklist of laughable dialogue, poor acting and sub-par special effects.

When the climactic battle finally arrives, it's a big letdown, full of bloodless decapitations (thanks, PG-13 rating) and awkward face-offs.

The finale is a doozy, almost certain to be satisfying to fans and impressive even to the casual "Twilight" viewer. But so much of what comes before that payoff...is mundane, dull, all talk and no action.

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

...Inept and self-congratulatory. It's an eyeliner-and-bad-special-effects face off, with the Cullen family and their runway model pals voguing against Aro and his heavily robed, superpowered minions.

There are better ways to spend your evening. Perhaps there's some laundry to be done?

Heads roll, sparks fly, wolves howl and the cinema audience collapses, weak with laughter.

Bill Condon cannot, for all his skill and effort, overcome the essentially s**t nature of the source material.

I must admit if you're going to bring the series to a close, "Part 2" does it about as well as it can be done.

I'll probably never understand the popularity of the Twilight movies. They're haphazardly assembled adaptations of awful books.
