The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2(2012)

Okay....not TOTALLY bad. The acting from the other vampires (except from two heavy-accent Eastern Euro-vamps) is acceptable, and the action sequence in the third act is ten to twenty minutes of awesomeness that I've been sorely craving. The trio have gotten the hang of their roles just in time to never play them again, and the casting of Mackenzie Foy as KStew and RPatt's daughter is creepy-accurate. However, the special effects (except for the wolf morphs, which have either improved greatly or I've just stopped noticing) are still less great than what's on the CW, and.....well, remember when I said that Foy is creepy-accurate about what the daughter of those two would look like? Take out the accurate part for seeing Renesmee as a baby and you'll get it right (not to mention Jacob's whole thing with her, but I'm not going there). I might give it a higher rating if the ending was better (I know they have to stick close to the book, but the promise of that action sequence spoiled me), but all in all, all I can say is that it was just entertaining enough for me to like it.
