The sequels became increasingly silly and overwrought but the original Twilight (2008) is actually kind of interesting even if you are not a devotee of the fan fic-turned-bestseller series.

You've been warned.

Unless you're a 14-year-old girl who gets all giddy at the thought of cute boys and first love, steer clear of Thirteen director Catherine Hardwicke's anemic adaptation.

Yes, it's strongly geared to the teen audience, but don't hold it against the filmmakers and go in with any preconceived notions and you'll find it a fun opening chapter of a new franchise.

It's not the stunts and derring-do which excite the senses as much as the quiet chemistry between Stewart and Pattinson; that is guaranteed to get your blood up.

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.

I've had mosquito bites that were more passionate than this undead, unrequited, and altogether unfun pseudo-romantic riff on Romeo and Juliet.

Its built-in fanbase (thanks to the best-selling novel) is ready to swoon. I'm not one of those swooners but even I had a great time indulging in the earnest urgency.

Twilight really does have an infatuation with surface beauty, especially where the vampires are concerned. In fact they sum up the film pretty well. It's a fašade, an appealing one to people who share the right appetites, but that's all.

Cinema.com: A densely erotic, twisted take on teen screen romance, Twilight zones out beneath the crushing weight of underage lust intensified and complicated by the excruciating abstention here of unorthodox vampire appetites.
March 10, 2010
...the film has been infused with a deliberate pace that proves instrumental in establishing (and perpetuating) the source material's very specific atmosphere.

December 24, 2009
Romantic, smart, likable and often quite funny, without any tacked-on snarkiness or desperate hipness.

Twilight is mostly elegantly put together, though anything having to do with the pack of bad vampires is disastrous...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 30, 2009
It's hard not to get sucked in--if one can get past the sometimes hokey, melodramatic teenage dialogue.

Suggests Anne Rice slumming for a WB special
August 22, 2009
For a piece about forbidden lust/love, it's not very tortured.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

So this is what all the fuss is about?

The genre has certainly come a long way from I Was a Teenage Werewolf.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
March 14, 2009
A densely erotic, twisted take on teen screen romance and underage rebel lust. And while not exactly the sexually suggestive The Man Who Came For Dinner, Twilight zones out on a defiant inter-species dating fantasy, Close Encounters Of The Thirst Kind.
