So it all finally comes to an end. I've never been an admirer of the Twilight films but their appeal to a large demographic of the audience is undeniable. Over the years while many have sneered the movies and books, others (in large numbers) have hailed it as a masterpiece and the phenomena for a generation of teens and â€œtweensâ€. However thankfully it's come to an end finally, until it's remade a few years down the line.
Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward's (Robert Pattinson) young daughter is regarded as a threat by the Vampire governing council called the Volturi lead by Aro (Michael Sheen). The Cullens try and protect the newest addition to their family and enlist the help of other vampire tribes from around the world. The werewolves also offer their assistance, all leading up to an explosive climax that thankfully doesn't disappoint.
Honestly the only highlight for me was the climactic battle and with a no-holds-barred attitude along with a nice twist in the end, it was worth the wait. I haven't read the books so there is no way I can compare the two, fortunately or unfortunately.
The acting uniformly remains the same as the earlier movies and even a good actor like Michael Sheen resorts to hamming it up. The cinematography is good, I'll give it that.
I guess â€œTwi-hardsâ€ will love it and the rest should maybe hop in just for the climactic battle.view less
