John & Becky’s Movie Review of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Becky and I took Corban, Bianca and our nephew Aidan to see the new The Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie at the AMC theater in Castle Rock, CO last week. The Fandango website at The Twilight Saga: Eclipse describes the movie as follows:

“Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.”

The Review
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse continues with more vampires and werewolves battling over the young girl Bella.  Aidan’s brother Brendan had seen the first movie and read all the Twilight books and he didn’t want to see this movie because he thought it would wreck the books.  Corban and Aidan didn’t care and decided to go with us to see this flick.  Unfortunately for them, there was much more kissing than action.

Becky and I both thought Eclipse was the best of the three in the series so far, but the film is still pretty lame.  It’s a love story about a teenage girl who is torn between loving a werewolf and a vampire.  She’s also extremely stupid, which is one of the problems with this movie series in general.  The vampires in the first film were very difficult to kill, but by the second film they were much easier for other vampires to whack and now they are not that difficult to kill at all, which makes no sense.  Becky didn’t care about such details, but was focused on the love story.  She liked the movie much more than I did, along with Bianca.

Corban summed up his and Aidan’s take on the film pretty well when he said, “I thought it was going to be a movie about a war between vampires and werewolves and it turned out to be a stupid love story about a girl wanting to marry a vampire.”.  Needless to say, Aidan and Corban didn’t like it at all.  I didn’t think it was that bad, but it wasn’t a great flick by any stretch and is probably at best a rental.

If you’re a Twilight fan you’ll either love it or hate it.
