    I have to confess that I am totally one of those women who think Edward is just the dreamiest dreamboat in modern cinema! Yeah, my kids are embarrassed that their mother likes to tag along to the Twilight movies, but I am a total Team Edward mom! He's so sensitive and sexy that you just wish a guy like him would be real... of course, we all know that such guys only exist in the movies and in stories (and he's also a vampire, which complicates things, lol). But I love the finale and think it's a fitting ending to the whole saga. There's a lot less love story in this one and a lot more action and fighting than the previous movies would suggest. It's been a long time since I read the last book so I enjoyed the movie a lot without trying to compare it to the book too much. I gave it four stars instead of five because of Kristen Stewart's affair, which shadows the whole thing, but if they can move on, I guess I should too. A great finale.

    All good things must come to and end. Also, the Twilight movies must come to an end. At least for the next five years until they are remade with Angelina Jolie’s offspring. As a critic, I feel it’s kind of moot to even try and review the latest and final installment in the franchise because nothing I say or think about the movie will have even the slightest effect on the target audience for the film which includes scores and scores of palpitating teenage girls and their middle aged mothers who live and die by the love legend that is Bella and Edward. I don’t get it (I didn’t even like the books, to be honest, and only made it through part of the first one), so I suppose I am meant to live a life outside the bask and shine that is Twilight. Whatever.

    The best thing I can say about this closing chapter of the saga is that it has a lot of action in it, which mercifully replaces the non-acting faces of the first three movies that were filmed to show us what teenage moping looks like in slow motion. There is a fierce battle brewing between the goodies and baddies (more specifically, the Cullen clan and the Volturi) and the epic battle feels a lot more like Narnia than Lord of the Rings.

    For all its mix of fantasy, adventure, and the supernatural, the whole saga has felt quite mundane and even cliched. I won’t go the easy route of bashing Kristen Stewart’s questionable acting skills or Robert Pattinson’s obvious disinterest or even Taylor Lautner’s inability to keep his shirt on. All of these things are upheld by fans as proof of the series’ awesomeness. I witnessed none of it, and was glad to have lived my teen years alongside Harry, Hermione, and Ron, instead of this dreadful trio. I know: pooh pooh on me.

    The saga essentially boils down to two crudely distilled concepts: how two people managed to refrain from “doing it” because one would die if she was penetrated by a vampire, and how teenage boys have a very, very hard time trying to abstain from sex with their pale girlfriends (unless he’s born-again or gay, which is ironic). Of course, none of it matters in the end because Bella and Edward end up precisely where we expect them to, and a few slashings and fang marks never really hurt anyone anyway. If this isn’t tripe, I don’t know what is.

    In this film Quileute and the Volturi close in on Edward and Bella who are expecting a very special child, the film is directed by Bill Condon and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. I have to say that I am not a fan of these films so I will be objective and fair in my review. The film was definitely eventfull but had no dramatic impact, the direction lacked focus and the performances were very poor, really nothing new. I did not believe anything that i was seeing, the actors seem to have given up on the film before it started shoting and I do not blame them. Overall, if you are a fan you will see this film anyway and my review will mean nothing and if you are not the fan than I suggest you do not start from this film.
