The fans, the story and the Twilight franchise deserve better.

I just think you deserve better than this, I really do.

Kristen Stewart is particularly good in her role.... If you have to take someone to this movie, you won't suffer overmuch.

A movie just about Bella's dad would probably be more interesting than any of the hormonal claptrap going on in this one.

The latest installment in the enormously popular series may satisfy its large legion of fans, but it will surely provide more fuel for the detractors of the series. It's easily the worst yet.
January 4, 2019
How such a franchise became one of Hollywood's most successful, I'll never understand.
December 5, 2018
Overall entertaining, and manages to maintain the audience's attention up to the final cliffhanger.

The first half of Breaking Dawn: Part 1 moves slowly, but at least it taps into the appropriate emotions. The second half zips along rapidly but remains alarmingly flat and lifeless.

We finally see the ugliness at the heart of a conservative romance narrative like the Twilight series.

You can argue about the feminist implications of the movie all day long (call me, I'd love to!), but at least in terms of horror, it seems that Condon and company are finally ready to freak out the tweens, and that makes me happy.
December 28, 2015
Even the addition of an Oscar-winning director in Bill Condon ("Kinsey," "Gods and Monsters") fails to save what is essentially a padded-out tale of all-consuming love and loyalty.

I can't even begin to parse all the creepy, anti-sex, body-horror abortion issues bubbling around the ugly subtext.

For those still in possession of their wits, this film is not only the worst of the Twilight flicks so far, but just about the most melodramatic and insipid movie I've ever watched.
December 28, 2012
The worst film in the "saga." Utter camp.
November 15, 2012
These movies have become one big joke, with hokey acting, slapdash visuals and Kindergarten dialogue. It felt like such a parody that it might as well have been directed by those jerks who made DISASTER MOVIE and EPIC MOVIE.
October 2, 2012
Breaking Dawn - Part 1 transfers pivotal events from the source material to the screen but fails to translate those events into a competent two-hour movie experience.
September 18, 2012
This film was made for the fans as they're going to be the only ones able to appreciate it, despite it not having any redeeming qualities whatsoever.
May 15, 2012
Dialogue howlers and largely soapy, melodramatic performances abound.
April 30, 2012
As a movie, this isn't terrible; none of them have been, really. Each film has gotten a director who has tried to do something simple and honest with Meyer's tormented material.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
