Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the fifth and final installment of the hugely successful Twilight Saga. It continues the life of three key characters Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) as they defend the most important person in their very intricate lives—Bella and Edward’s daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy).
Now that she is a bloodsucker herself, Bella sinks her teeth into the vampiric lifestyle and her newfound renaissance. Renesmee connects the three main characters (with Jacob imprinting on her), as well as the whole vampire community against the Volturi. She is a half-human and half-vampire who grows tremendously faster than a usual kid. Thinking that Renesmee is actually a vampire-baby, the Volturi guys opt to destroy her because she is a threat to everyone.
Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the most entertaining and not to mention the most brutal out of all the installments. The CG effects were a little elementary and could have done better and epic. What kills me to no end is the acting. Kristen Stewart is at her emotionless-acting best that the CG wolves acted better than her. Pattinson is stiff and Lautner does not seem to improve in any way. At first I thought this is a nice spoof of the Twilight movies because everything looked, well, campy. It’s a fun, fun movie. Too funny, I thought it is a joke.
But then again, the climactic battle towards the end is AMAZING! The sequence is so insanely grandiose, heads are rolling LITERALLY!
Again, out of all the Movie adaptations of The Twilight Saga, I think this is the most enjoyable one. Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a delightful treat to all the TwiHards around the world. The movie (and the whole franchise) could have done a whole lot better (with better casting I guess), but you would somehow forget everything once you get to see the final moments/montage of the movie.
3.0 out of 5 stars
