Finally got the time to make a review on one of the hottest movie releases this November.
The conclusion of the Twilight Saga – BREAKING DAWN 2 opened last November 15 (Thursday) here in the Philippines. I actually got two invitations for the advance screening of this movie but I only got to watch it right after opening night.
I should first tell you that I am really not a fan of the Twilight Saga, although I did enjoy watching the first movie. Breaking Dawn 2 stars Kirsten Stewart (Bella Swan), Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black). The movie revolves around the love story and the complexity of the relationship of three individuals – a human, a vampire and a werewolf. It’s kind of an absurd notion if you think about it, but for some reason the story clicked to a lot of people. Was it because of the stars who portrayed the roles or the way the situation was presented by the author Stephenie Meyer – well I’m not really sure.
Anyway, there’ll be no spoilers here in this review but I will tell you that the conclusion had more action than the other parts. A lot of new characters were introduced. I must also admit that the movie is more exciting than those that came before it and definitely way better than Breaking Dawn Part 1.
The Breaking Dawn 2 plot is simple – After Bella gave birth to Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation made by Irina (Maggie Grace) that puts the family in front of the Volturi.
And in the end it was Alice Cullen (Ashley Greene) who saves them all – and you’ll know why when you see the movie. Another surprising detail about the final Twilight is that everyone gets to be happy, even Jacob. – again, you’ll know why after watching the movie.
Over-all, the movie redeems the boring Breaking Dawn Part 1 and this one’s less darker, less melodramatic and less serious than the other parts. Worth watching.
Breaking Dawn 2 is directed by Bill Condon and produced by Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment.
