Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

December 4, 2011

Charlie Swan: Edward will be a good husband. I know this because… because I’m a cop, I know things. Like how to hunt somebody to the ends of the earth.

While it’s title is Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, many call it “the greatest cinematic achievement” or “the brightest twilight of all-time”, yet has nothing to offer except gloomy teenager drama… with vampires. Though it is a significant improvement over New Moon and Eclipse, it cannot quite rank up to the first one (which wasn’t very good to begin with), and the fact that we have to endure yet another year of build up to what is supposedly the “movie event of 2012”. Was there any particular reason to split the film up into two different parts? I didn’t think so, it’s just another money-making technique that, sadly, these people know how to use to their advantage.

So the movie starts with a scene that was supposed to be the end of Eclipse, which featured Jacob (Taylor Lautner) turning into a werewolf, running away from his home after receiving an invitation to a wedding between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). When will he learn that she wants Edward? Do we really have to go through FIVE movies for him to learn to back the hell off?! Anyway, Bella gets pregnant during her honeymoon, leading to a presumably devil child that is breeding quite rapidly inside of Bella; killing her from the inside.

I’m keeping this review short mainly because… well… I do not really have much to say about this, other than the major flaws I found. Not surprisingly, the main flaw I experienced with the other films came up again, the horrendous acting. Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, and Anna Kendrick notwithstanding, everyone else gives quality, razzie-worthy portrayals, that are as dull as the dialogue, which brings me to my next issue: the script, which is trite, horribly written, and features some of the most laughable dialogue I’ve seen. Now, why am I rating this so high? Simply because the last five minutes are breathtaking, thrilling, and features a fantastic ending that gives SOME lead-in to what we’ll expect in the next film. Still, it can’t make up for most of the flaws. It’s a rental at best.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 = 2 out of 5

    The other scenes are ridiculously useless. There’s nothing to admire in the other scenes. Unlike “Eclipse”, even though it’s slow paced, there are a lot of things to see, to explore. “Breaking Dawn – Part 1”, I don’t think so. Because the content here is so little, I don’t even think a “Part 2” is needed. Harry Potter really needs because there are plenty of things to talk about and each of them is vital to the story. But here, kissing and hugging are not really necessary and just a waste of time.
