drags along too slowly to give it much impact and instead engenders little more than impatience

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.

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.

Tedious and toothless and feels at numerous moments more like a Saturday Night Live spoof that a proper continuation of the series.

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.

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.

Breaking Dawn starts to confirm my theory that Twilight is just a tamer version of The Story of O.

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.

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.

Banal, bloodsipping installment to this far-fetched fantasy.

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.

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.
