The Twilight Saga: New Moon Reviews

October 8, 2018
Suicidal tendencies have been a classic feature of romantic tales since time immemorial. But they are hardly a good model for tweens and teens.
August 8, 2018
While the sequel should have fans squealing, New Moon probably won't convert too many holdouts.

What's amazing about New Moon, and the whole Twilight series generally, is how easily it becomes self-parody.
November 27, 2017
The film's saving grace, by a long chalk, is Kristen Stewart, who once again manages to make the insufferable Bella far more interesting on the screen than she is on the page.
November 14, 2012
Entertaining for what it is and the alpha male werewolves end up being a lot more fun than the brooding, moody vampires.

September 25, 2012
The brooding and sulking is so palpable in "New Moon," the latest film in the Twilight series, that you could probably cut it with a knife. If the filmmakers thought that this would be enough to carry a film for over two hours, they were sadly mistaken.

Ostensible heroine Bella is such a weak, needy, pathetic co-dependent who stirs up so much sh*t for those she purportedly loves that it's hard to muster much rooting interest for her.

So long as there are people, there will be love stories -- I hope they all feel as lush and lively as this one.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 4, 2011
The net result is boredom unless you're already heavily invested in this series and bringing your own enthusiasm to the table.

March 21, 2011
Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, new director Chris Weitz has decided to be generally faithful to his source material despite the problems it's going to give him through a narrative that could delicately be described as 'sprawling.'

The Twilight Saga's New Moon is not terrible, despite featuring some excruciatingly lazy storytelling, atrocious performances, listless direction and a core storyline that is both uninteresting and somewhat disturbing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 4, 2010
...a marked improvement over its decidedly uneven predecessor...

June 23, 2010
Robert Pattinson and his stomach cramps - I mean, aching unrequited love - are less oppressive, but the trade off is Taylor Lautner and his relentless shirtlessness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 14, 2010
Poorly structured, poorly paced, poorly executed CGI in places and characters that are unlikeable, despite the fact that we should be rooting for them. An inaccessible mess.

April 12, 2010
For pity's sake, direct-to-video cheerleading competition films have more genuine intrigue than this.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/4.0
April 5, 2010
New Moon is only after the affectation of emotion, of swoon-worthy poses and faux-momentous aesthetics.
Full Review | Original Score: D
March 24, 2010
My main problem with the Twilight series so far is that Bella doesn't have much in the way of admirable qualities. What's her distinction? She pines a lot.

February 18, 2010
I did find this film to be a little better than "Twilight" because of the romantic triangle aspect. That, and other plot developments add some complexity and suspense, making the film a bit more interesting.

New Moon was fully satisfying for the fans. I just happen to not be a fan.

January 19, 2010
Superficial soup for the teenage soul.
