Manages to transcend the soapiness of its predecessors and work quite well as an engaging story about sacrifice, romance and, interestingly, the inner conflicts of the undead.

Continues the mopey saga of sparkly vampires, shirtless werewolves and a heroine so cloyingly vapid she makes Carrie Bradshaw seem generous and self-aware.

Was two hours' worth of such repetitive and overheated emotional triangulation really necessary--even for the demographic that'll be breathing hard over every frame?

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third outing in the supernatural saga of high romance and higher camp, finally shows its fangs with a dazzling display of imagery to go along with a hurried sense of danger.

The film is a swirl of raging hormones, bitter jealousies and the aching grip of feelings that have yet to be physically consummated.

As a phenomenon, Twilight still takes some beating, but in the end Eclipse, while certainly servicing the fans, should perhaps have given them more than a stop-gap until next-year's two-part finale.

There's a new director this time (David Slade), to little avail.

brings a smoother, more confident style and tone that balances the romance and the violence in a way that gives the film more weight.

It is a surprise to discover that the same territory here provides some serious entertainment.

A solid and frequently enjoyable film.

Everything that could and should be elaborated at length to make for a convincing or even just passably trashy love story is glossed over here just as much as in the last two Twilight movies.

Tepid Story Clouds Eclipse.

Eclipse is an unfortunate entry in a franchise that, while certainly flawed, had at least built up some dramatic momentum over the course of its first two installments.

Slightly better...but still sucky.

The good news is that the mood is a little lighter than in New Moon, which was full of teenage angst and suicide attempts. Edward and Bella even get to smile now and again and there's the occasional funny line.

It's a definite step up from New Moon and might even leave the harshest critics just a teeny bit excited about what's in store come the two-part Breaking Dawn... The countdown to November 2011 begins...

More pouting, mumbling and gazing into the distance, mainly. But hey. NOBODY does it better than these guys.

All three actors are comfortable with their characters, and Slade finds the right balance of action and romance; the story feels organic. Some of the dialogue is earnest and silly, but the core strength of the Stephenie Meyer novels is here: the battle be

"All I want is your protection," he says to Bella, firmly removing her hand from inside his shirt. "I'll protect you no matter what." Edward Cullen: the human condom.

Not as good as Twilight, not as bad as New Moon, Eclipse is decent teen cinema that will thrill fans and mollify their accompaniers. Can't wait for the caesarean-by- teeth in the next one...
