Critic Review - Rolling Stone

My advice: Focus on Pattinson and Stewart. They make you understand why the books sold 17 million copies.

I agree. The other characters, besides Jacob Black wasn't necessary at all.

I thought Pattinson played the part well. Stewart was a little bland. I thought both Jacob and Roalie's characters were played well too.

Seriously?!! Did you fall asleep during the movie and dream up a new and better one? There was absolutely no chemistry between the actors. Every line that Stewart delivered was monotone, she could have been telling a potato that she loved it with all that emotion. Pattinson did deliver a lot more emotion, but he still didn't fare much better. Overall, the movie did not focus enough on drawing viewers into the "unparalleled love" between Edward and Bella that was established in the book.

Even though some complain about Stewart, I thought her portrayal of Bella added far more layers and depth to the character than there were in the book. In the book the character was flat, uninspiring, detached and only had a flicker of a personality once Edward enters the picture, at least Stewart did a nuanced spin of this impossible-to-relate-to vapid book character.

I must agree
unfortunately the movie was dull
very hard to watch
like one of those oldschool horrors that seem almost home made
as well the actors definately weren't right for the parts - or they possibly could have been if the script was more passionate and the storyline much clearer.

The movie established a love far FAR greater then the movie ever did. The movie merely touched upon their feelings and made that even hard to follow. The book made me cry, laugh, fall in love and the movie made me want to leave it was a painful experience to watch it
sorry guys
