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.

The worst film in the "saga." Utter camp.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.

Dialogue howlers and largely soapy, melodramatic performances abound.

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.

Entertainingly bad. In fact, it's the funniest movie we've seen this year even though it isn't a comedy (we think).

If I can say anything for the film, it's that it delivers exactly what the legions of Twi-hards want and expect--or what 'Team Edward' wants, anyway.

Terribly broken.

Bill Condon gives the series' fans what they have shown they want: uneven storytelling, maudlin dialog and decidedly one-note performances.

Bella makes her way toward "the kingdom where nobody dies" by being rather ingeniously resilient, completely predictable and frustrating, punished and punishing. She's 18, again and still.

Whatever momentum the third film had in this series, it's gone. Once again, it's an average soap opera.

This penultimate "Twilight" film is the best in the series so far. It's languorous, romantic, moody, and, in the end, horrifying.

For a movie about life-sucking vampires and flesh-ripping werewolves, there sure is an inordinate focus on the birds and the bees.

This slow-moving film has long periods of inaction and generates little suspense, making it the worst film in the "Twilight Saga" films so far.
