Review: “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1”

The love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob sizzles down but rage between the vampires and the werewolves heightens.

Director: Bill Condon

Who is in it: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner

What it is about: In "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1," Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward
(Robert Pattinson), plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by their ornate nuptials, a romantic honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of their child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).

Why we like it: If you've read the books, you'd already know what's coming your way; well, even if you haven't you probably do too what with all the hype about this fourth sequel to the "Twilight" series. What if we told you that the first scene of the movie involves Jacob Black removing his top and performing an incredible run right into the forest? Already liking the movie? The humour in this one will actually churn a few hearty laughs.

Why we don't: Nothing exciting really happens in this one - nothing too visual and generally anticlimactic. We're also not sure how necessary the nude scene was to the movie; um perhaps an indicator towards the maturity of the characters? Yeah.

Verdict: Definitely expected more out of this one; nothing more than a short ride to a vampire-meets-mortal fantasy wedding and a dip in the waters in preparation for the final film to the sequel - "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2."
