Becky and I took the kids to see the new Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn last Sunday at the Regal Cinema in Lone Tree, CO. The Fandango website at Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, describes the movie as follows.
“At last, Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are getting married. When Jacob (Taylor Lautner) finds out that Bella wants to spend her honeymoon as a human, he is horrified — for Edward’s passion could accidentally kill her. Bella does indeed survive her honeymoon, but a new complication arises when she discovers that she’s pregnant — and the child is growing at an alarming rate. The pregnancy sets the wolves against Bella and Edward, but Jacob vows to protect his friend.“
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is part one of the final film in the Twilight Saga series, thank goodness, about Edward the vampire, Bella his lover and Jacob the werewolf. The books were amazing best sellers and it’s kind of funny that they were written by a Mormon because the genre is totally whacked out, including having a giant cross lying on the floor on the way up the stairs of the vampires home.
I’m not a fan of the films, they are too much like a soap opera. This one has much more blood than the previous ones and the story is totally whacked with Bella getting pregnant and having a vampire baby. The special effects were kind of cool, but this vampire flick simply cannot compete with Lost Boys, Fright Night or the Underworld series where vampires and werewolves are not on the same level as the Captain Crunch character and Tony The Tiger.
The whole concept of this movie series is really silly and reminds me of the soap opera in the 1970’s called Dark Shadows with the 200 year old vampire Barnabas Collins in search of his lost love that my sisters made me watch every day as a kid. We continue to get sucked into it because I have to write a review about it and they seem to release it when nothing else is playing. It’s definitely the better of the series, with the exception of the first one that was the best of the bunch in my opinion where you actually had evil blood sucking vampires.
We were not huge fans of this film, it was better than Becky and I expected it to be and the kids didn’t like it at all. Conroy who is 13, really thought it was stupid and it definitely took a turn for the worse compared to the first film. I rarely side with the critics, but on this one I’m with them.
