The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Critics 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.

  • Eclipse is a film for a target audience and this one hits the bullseye.

    January 14, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Director David Slade does his best, but the material follows such a rigid and generic formula that there is no room for him to bring any kind of personality to it.

    October 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Eclipse may be the best of the three Twilight films, but that's almost like saying that being knee deep in bird excrement is better than being knee deep in rat excrement.

    June 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Eclipse is a movie about rejecting adulthood, not just as a person but also as a culture. It's about never crossing boundaries, never leaving home.

  • ... Eclipse seems to move along in a lethargy of vampire coldness and adolescent superficiality. [Full review in Spanish]

  • Twilight: Eclipse is meticulously, strenuously boring.

    Still can't be doing with all the soppiness and the film drags out a long time preparing for the main show down and I must admit I didn't expect the battle to be as good but that's the only reason my rating is so high.

    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

    I choose to wait until they arrive on TV, but I have watched the first three Twilight movies. From the story point of view, I preferred Twi1 and Twi2 over Twi3. Twi3 didn't add much. We always knew that Bella was torn between Jacob and Edward, but that she would choose Edward. I guess by getting the vampires and werewolves to work together, they can keep both sets in the last two movies.

    Wake me when this movie is over. No. Actually, let me sleep until this series is over.
