Entertaining for what it is and the alpha male werewolves end up being a lot more fun than the brooding, moody vampires.

The film takes itself rather earnestly, the heroine is more than half in love with easeful death, and the lighting by Spanish ace cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe is impressive.

New Moon doesn't have much of a plot; the bulk of it is Bella moping around. But director Chris Weitz knows a thing or two about love...
