Four years after the release of the first movie, the fifth and final
installment of the Twilight saga is upon us. The Twilight Saga: Breaking
Dawn – Part 2 not only does fantastic justice to the series as a
whole, but the movie itself is astounding and by far the most epic movie in the
With an opening kickoff sequence nearly identical to the first
movie Twilight, it is clear that Breaking Dawn will be as
captivating as its earlier precedents. Seeing the world through new vampire
Bella’s eyes immediately puts the audience in a prime position of feeling like
they are a part of the movie themselves. From the adrenaline driven first hunt
to the epic battle scene nearing the movies end,Breaking Dawn is sure to
keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Dawn is more than animal hunting and vampire battles. There is also
sweetness in seeing Bella and Edward with their fast growing daughter Renesmee,
and watching the three of them bond as a family. Of course, Breaking Dawn
– Part 2 wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of another love scene
between the new Mr. and Mrs. Cullen; only this time there’s no tantalizing fear
of crushing Bella on Edward’s part. Never-the-less the scene was handled with
the same tastefulness and respect for the audience as the honeymoon scene in
With Bella and Edward
being married and now having a daughter, those who haven’t read the book may
believe that to be the central plot of part two, but it’s not. So what’s the
big twist? The Volturi make their return to the franchise from New
Moon intending to kill Renesmee since they believe that she is an immortal
child, thus breaking one of the vampire’s laws. With the urgency of the
impending battle and the threat to their future existence, the Cullens set off
on a fast paced race against time to assemble family that will stand behind
them against the forces of the Volturi.
What culminates as a
result of gathering their family is an enormous battle scene. From a vampire
with the ability to manipulate the elements to one with the ability to block
others’ senses, the supernatural powers all add to what shall forever be
remembered as the most action packed scene of any of the Twilight movies.
Vampires getting torn to pieces, werewolves being crushed and the ground
breaking into a fiery pit all combine to leave any Twihard breathless.
The ending montage
highlighting Bella and Edward’s history, set to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand
Years”, was the perfect way to end the final movie. But is this really the last
we’ve seen of any of these characters? Well, if Alice’s vision of Renesmee
as an adult is any indicator, there may be a continuation some time in the
Just like the
"Harry Potter" fans, Stephanie Meyers' "Twilight" book
series has its own set of followers who would chew every bit of this film.
Like the earlier "Twilight" films, which are filled with too much
'dead time' and blank stares, this one starts out pretty much the same way but,
luckily, picks up quickly.
