The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
Critic Consensus: Stuffed with characters and overly reliant on uninspired dialogue, Eclipse won't win The Twilight Saga many new converts, despite an improved blend of romance and action fantasy.

Critic Reviews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
This third "Twilight" film eclipses its predecessors but its anti-climactic story and its melodramatic tendencies still hold it back."
Edward is cold and controlling: the archetype of an abusive partner and Jacob just acts like a rapist in training, he keeps trying to kiss Bella against her will.
[For] "Eclipse," it was easy to go through the list of old complaints and check them off one by one as the film progressed, including a story that leads absolutely nowhere.
Like Bella, non-fans have a choice, and making a choice to stay away may save one some bewilderment.
This may be Slade's film but it's Summit's franchise, so any individuality he might wish to imbue in Eclipse comes a distant second to the needs of the series at large.
Audience Reviews for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Possibly the worst of the series, it could be easily subtracted from the whole without any loss. With awful dialogue, ridiculous plot contrivances and painful acting by everyone, it is a mystery how a poor narrative like this can be called a "saga" when nothing ever really happens.
Eclipse is uninspiring and yet more action-based than its previous two installments. Though the action brings it up a step, the rest of its direction brings down further to the trenches. 2.5/5
