The Twilight Saga: New Moon Reviews

Page 1 of 12
Jeff Beck

The brooding and sulking is so palpable in "New Moon," the latest film in the Twilight series, that you could probably cut it with a knife. If the filmmakers thought that this would be enough to carry a film for over two hours, they were sadly mistaken.

Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, new director Chris Weitz has decided to be generally faithful to his source material despite the problems it's going to give him through a narrative that could delicately be described as 'sprawling.'

The Twilight Saga's New Moon is not terrible, despite featuring some excruciatingly lazy storytelling, atrocious performances, listless direction and a core storyline that is both uninteresting and somewhat disturbing.

Fans will quiver and sigh; everyone else will shrug, and move on.

If they spent more time on the scripts, coaching the actors and finding less distracting hair and makeup, they might earn what they have but don't deserve: the fans' unconditional love.

Film School Rejects

Poorly structured, poorly paced, poorly executed CGI in places and characters that are unlikeable, despite the fact that we should be rooting for them. An inaccessible mess.

The most surprising thing about New Moon, the second film in the Twilight series, is how much worse it is than the first.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

...despite a better than expected attempt by (Chris) Weitz, this is a story that lacks any real quality.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon takes the tepid achievement of Twilight, guts it, and leaves it for undead.

New Moon comes dangerously close to self-parody on more than one occasion, but it seems blissfully unaware of this and soldiers on with a seriousness that's unintentionally funny.

Alone of all the earnest players in this turgidly euphemistic melodrama, Sheen seems to grasp that the only way you can keep a straight face through this choked-up virginity is to carry it way into camp.

If this is the world's next generation of womanhood, that's a century of female emancipation down the drain. Bella's more likely to polish her chastity belt than burn her bra.

If only director Chris Weitz had managed to tease out the real drama -- Bella's fear of aging -- instead of a tired one.

New Moon will undoubtedly be a blockbuster at the box office, but is really quite weak as a film.

The soundtrack will be smothered by the sounds of screaming girls, and laughing at them may be the only pleasure you get out of this arduously edited angst fest.

There's little in the way of forward momentum until the final 30 minutes; stretching out this picture to longer than two hours was indefensible.

Florida Times-Union

A long, melodramatic slog, hardly scary at all and missing the offbeat touches and disorienting passion that made the first so surprisingly enjoyable.

One of her suitors stays out all night with his weird friends. The other does his "Brokeback Mountain" thing with his buddies in the woods.

Never has a man's shirtlessness been so essential to a character's development.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon plays like a 130 minute trailer for a movie called The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
