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.

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.

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.

I'm many decades older and several broken hearts' worth more cynical than the Twilight saga's target audience, but it does seem to me to be nothing less than emo-porn for teenage girls.

Whenever I did start to really enjoy Eclipse, the score killed it stone dead.

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.

It is not exactly praise to call 'Eclipse' the best film in 'The Twilight Saga' to date.

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

Perhaps the most watchable entry in the Twilight series so far, it's still saddled with the most cipher-like heroine of all time.
December 24, 2010
Certainly not awful, but the producer's dedication to Stephenie Meyer's drawn-out story creates a lumbering third movie that borderlines on downright dull.

It's interesting to see each film make Bella into an even bigger creep than previously imagined, with Eclipse turning the indecisive heroine into a mean-spirited provocateur unworthy of all the attention lavished on her.

... at least director David Slade pulls the film from the doldrums of the second film and sends the fur flying across the lush Pacific Northwest backdrops in the climax.

'Well, I am hotter than you.' This supposed reference to body temperature, uttered by werehunk Jacob to sparkly vampire Edward, is not just the funniest line in the film but a nice distillation of the tension that now drives the series.

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
