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.

This third "Twilight" film eclipses its predecessors but its anti-climactic story and its melodramatic tendencies still hold it back."

Meyer's teen bore-triangle has a mimetic quality, assuming the same degree of naval gazing self-interest as the target demographic.

If the producers of Twilight were given permission to remake Casper ... they'd probably have his ghostly apparition dress in some three-quarter jean-shorts, just to keep his modesty intact. Somebody has to think of the children, right
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

As long as these movies remain about three petulant whiners staring at each other to little effect, no rousing action sequences are going to save them from their torpor.

The core problems with the Twilight films are still very much present in this new instalment including the plodding pace, the trite dialogue and the very regressive subtext.

My inner adolescent craves a role model who's got more going for her than a melodramatic crush.

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.

No sex before marriage makes vampirism totally unsexy in this riskless, casualty-free confrontation

Eclipse basically treads a whole bunch of the same ground we went over in the last terrible movie, except this time Jacob keeps coming across like a rapist in training.

Chicago Sun-Times

For most of its languorous running time, it listens to conversations between Bella and Edward, Bella and Jacob, Edward and Jacob, and Edward and Bella and Jacob. This would play better if any of them were clever conversationalists.

Kristin Stewart, an actress who shows amazing range and ability when not playing Bella, continues to do her best imitation of a cardboard cutout here.

More happens in Eclipse than in the previous Twilight zone, New Moon, and yet it's duller.

Still bad, but just maybe, mildly less bad than the previous two.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

124 minutes of listening to teenagers melodramatically espouse the depth of their convoluted passions for each other makes for a pretty dire trip to the movies.

If you belong to a Jacob vs. Edward blog, or have a Twilight poster hanging over your bed, this is your movie.

"Eclipse" isn't awful but, like its two predecessors, it is a largely listless, apathetic affair.

This film should come with a phone cord to twirl around your finger as you engage in eternal dating gossip.
| Original Score: C-

When the face of ultimate evil is represented by the bland visage of Dakota Fanning, something has gone terribly wrong.
