Critic Consensus: Having lost much of its bite transitioning to the big screen, Twilight will please its devoted fans, but do little for the uninitiated.

Critic Reviews for Twilight
My hope is that the sequels are actual attempts at movies. The world doesn't need any more toothless cinema.
A deeply sincere, outright goofy vampire romance for the hot-not-to-trot abstinence set.
Some will find it all too polite, but compared to rival blockbuster exercises in explosive CGI mayhem, its character-based index of longing and protectiveness at least provides a viable alternative moodscape.
I succumbed to the palpable chemistry between the leads, and remembered my own girlish fantasies with something of a head-spinning rush.
I think this film is definitely a victim of it's own expectations.
Audience Reviews for Twilight
My name is (?) and im and alcoholic and a sex addict. But i have been Twilight clean for 20 years!
It is shocking that some people could possibly think that such a sexist story is romantic, but maybe it could have been a bit better if it weren't for its corny dialogue and weak performances that help make this a schmaltzy teen flick to please only the hardcore fans and no one else.
It was pretty good introduction to the series. I actually enjoyed it.
|Edward Cullen:||What if I'm no a hero. What if I'm the bad guy?|
|Edward Cullen:||it is extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are.|
|Edward Cullen:||It's an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are.|
|Bella Swan:||Vampirs play baseball?|
|Edward Cullen:||It is the national pastime.|
|Bella Swan:||About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was part of him-and I didn't know how potent that part might be- that thirsted for my blood. and third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.|
