drags along too slowly to give it much impact and instead engenders little more than impatience
| Original Score: 2/4
Dawnfinally gives viewers something to sink their teeth into.
| Original Score: 3.0/4.0
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg continues her long tradition of scripting staggeringly banal, subtext-free dialogue and grasping at the profundity of her betters by quoting poetry in the prologues.
| Original Score: 1/5
It won't disappoint the legions of "Twihards" who turned out for midnight Friday shows at theaters all across the country, including the Quad-Cities.
| Original Score: 2.5
Twilight series dims - non fans stay away
| Original Score: .5/5
Almost sort of liked it.
| Original Score: 2.25/5
Tedious and toothless and feels at numerous moments more like a Saturday Night Live spoof that a proper continuation of the series.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Bella é a candidata ideal a uma arrasadora depressão pós-parto. Mas com um marido sexualmente ambíguo e um melhor amigo pedófilo, quem não seria?
There's less cringeworthy dialogue and Condon does a better job visually telling the story, but it's hard to make a riveting two-hour film when the main conflict seems completely arbitrary.
In the context of America's continued puritanical obsession with sexual repression, the "Twilight" movies come across as so much Kool-aid propaganda.
| Original Score: D
Condon can only do so much with the material at hand -- especially in this case, where maybe an hour of plot is stretched out to 117 minutes.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Breaking Dawn starts to confirm my theory that Twilight is just a tamer version of The Story of O.
| Original Score: 4/10
They have saved the best for last. This movie is totally romantic and its three leads are at their best. This will delight 'Twilight' fans and bring in new converts.
| Original Score: 7/11
It's precisely three shots in that Taylor Lautner takes his shirt off, if that's your thing, and in all honesty I don't suppose that there can possibly be a more legitimate reason to see the movie.
Put a stake in this franchise.
Banal, bloodsipping installment to this far-fetched fantasy.
| Original Score: 6/10
The storyline reached a new depth and is everything every fan will desire.
| Original Score: 3/5
A wolf council with dubbed growls may be the most ludicrous scene of the year, but a rumble with chic vampires punching CGI werewolves comes close.
| Original Score: 1/4
Suggested solely for Twilight diehards, this underwhelming, unfunny melodrama amounts to little more than an uneventful setup for next year's grand finale.
Yet another rather odd and protracted stepping stone to the ultimate finale ... it's a done deal for Meyer and co who are laughing all the way to the bank.
| Original Score: 2/5
