Critic Review - Arizona Republic

Twilight will doubtless thrill fans of the books, who have long waited for its release. And while it's not a failure, everyone else will wish that the film had, if you'll excuse the expression, a little more bite.

Unthrilled to the core book fan here. I cringe every time I think of the movie.

I longed and waited for the release of Twilight the movie. I love the series so I was expecting this movie to be really good. Twilight was not a bad movie, but it was also not an awesome movie. It did not meet my expectations, EXCEPT the actors chosen for the movie were perfect.
It felt like the movie was on fast forward. I felt they should have put more emphasis on certain parts and characters.

Was the Movie good? YES. BUT the BOOK is 209375287452 times better.

The biggest disappointment is that the passion and emotions from the book did not really translate onto the screen.
