The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is about to come out in theaters tomorrow November 15th 2012. And as the fans of the book and this film went on a journey to the lives of Bella and Edward, this final instalment will surely keep fans at the edge of their seats with a box of tissue as the story comes to an epic end. Starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 comes to a full circle into the immortal lives of vampires and werewolves. Let’s check out the review for this latest film written by Justin Chang
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – An Epic Ending
Laughter, disbelief and a sort of horrified exhilaration are all perfectly sane reactions to “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” a doozy of a finale to a series that, until now, has largely taken its dramatic cues from its maddeningly inert heroine. Not anymore: With Bella reborn as a bloodthirsty, butt-kicking vampire mama, this second of two Bill Condon-directed installments clears a low bar to stand easily as the franchise’s most eventful and exciting entry. Admittedly, much of the credit should go to a jaw-dropping extended climax that will give fans something to chew on besides the delicate matter of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s offscreen romance — not that a movie this commercially invincible requires too many talking points.
As demonstrated by last year’s “Harry Potter” capper, the conclusion to a book-based fantasy phenomenon can be counted on to do even bigger biz than usual, and “Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” the fifth and final film in a property that has already grossed $2.5 billion worldwide, should prove no exception. Summit can expect plenty of repeat attendance, and it’ll be interesting to monitor reactions beyond author Stephenie Meyer’s distaff fanbase, this being perhaps the first “Twilight” picture that some men in the audience might find themselves actually enjoying.
Transformed into a vampire by the Cullen family at the end of “Part 1″ so as to avoid near-certain death in childbirth, Bella (Stewart) opens her cold red eyes on a strange new world. Now possessed of superhuman strength, speed and senses, she can sprint, fly, disembowel large mammals and even overpower her hulking vampire brother-in-law Emmett (Kellan Lutz). Best of all, she and her husband, Edward (Pattinson), can retire to their Thomas Kinkade-style cottage and enjoy a life of uninhibited carnal pleasure, as demonstrated in a borderline-explicit love scene notable for its cloying soft-rock accompaniment, amber-lit closeups and artful methods of vampire junk concealment.
But Bella 2.0 also has her disadvantages, namely a nagging thirst for human blood that results in some mild complications with her dad, Charlie (Billy Burke), as well as with her rapidly developing half-mortal, half-immortal daughter, Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). In a twist of fate that really brings out Bella’s aggressive side, Renesmee’s destiny turns out to be intertwined with that of Jacob (Taylor Lautner), the abdominally superior teenage werewolf who once rivaled Edward for Bella’s affections.”
