    Verdict - Boring watch. Strictly for fans of the series

    The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1Watch trailerRelease date : November 24, 2011

    Breaking Dawn is the first half of the last two partsof the Twilight series and was hugely anticipated. Sharad Pawar getting slapped did not deter the hordes from thronging the theatre and I had to be content with a first row seat in a packed hall.

    I wonder what the teens (who is the main audience for this movie) thought of the movie but for me it was part romantic Bollwywood rubbish and part a documentary on pregnancy. It starts with Bellass marriage finally to the vampire Edward. They zoom off to a romantic island for their honeymoon and there is wedding night scene. He is too strong for her and bruises her while making love to her and so wont touch her again. That leads to tensions and frustrations till they do it again and voila! She is pregnant. This was not supposed to happen since vampires cannot impregnate apparently. That should account for the non use of protection which is so not the message the youth of today should be getting. The next part of the movie has us seeing the pregnancy and birth in all its gory detail starting from morning sickness to a rather horrible C section. There is of course tension with the wolf pack, which does not want the child born since they think it will destroy them and of course the seething jealousy that Jacob feels against Edward but yet helps him so as to protect Bella.

    Robert Pattison looks sick with those pink lips and ashen face and Kristen Stewart is so vapid and lifeless that only a vampire could fall in love with such a bloodless creature. The saving grace is Taylor Lautner who infuses some strong energy to offset the soppiness of the romantic duo as they fawn over the big pregnant stomach.

    If you are a fan of the Twilight books then you will love it or hate it but you will watch it regardless of what I say. Wyck Godfrey, the films producer has promised that Part two is "an action film in terms of life-and-death stakes". Also, in Part Two Bella will be a vampire and maybe the cold blood coursing through her veins will make her more animated. As for me, I am not holding my breath for Part Two or What to expect when you are expecting the Wonder Years age 1-5.
