Film Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

Five years and four bestselling books later, it seems we’ve finally come to the end of the multi-million dollar grossing, teen vamp Twilight saga. Long-awaited final chapter Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012) will likely add to that undeniably impressive gross haul, whilst fans of Stephenie Meyer’s novel can rejoice in the fact that the Bill Condon-helmed conclusion is easily the best of the series. Picking up immediately from where last year’s predecessor left off, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 sees Bella Cullen (née Swan, Kristen Stewart) – now a vampire – revelling in her newfound abilities with husband Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). Unfortunately for the happy couple, the ruling Volturi sect are soon made aware of their half-breed daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) and, believing her to be an immortal child, move to destroy the coven. In an effort to prevent a bloody battle, Bella and Edward must amass witnesses to prove Renesmee’s harmlessness.

  1. Wow. 3/5 stars is incredibly high. I’m glad you liked it. I, however, was less than impressed. The CGI baby was absolutely ridiculous and a possible low point for me. Ha ha.

    • I think the lack of a love triangle and human bella made the film a lot better than the previous instalments. Never been a twilight fan, haven’t read the books, I honestly expected to hate it but I was pleasantly surprised. Agreed on the CGI baby though. Low point indeed.
