The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 is the fourth installment of The Twilight Saga franchise. The film stars all the original cast members, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Green and Nickie Reed. This film centers on Bella and Edward’s wedding day and honeymoon. The couple decides they will wed and enjoy their honeymoon before Edward changes Bella into a vampire. But, their honeymoon takes a turn for the worst when Bella discovers a harmful demon living inside her or so she thinks. Can Edward save Bella before it’s too late? Or will the demon destroy Bella and make Edward live for an eternity with regret, guilt and emptiness without her?
The film is a typical Twilight movie filled with corny dialogue, cheesy CGI and a lot of scenes with Taylor Lautner half naked. The acting is mediocre and the story is dragged out. Most of the film is Edward and Bella preparing for their wedding day and enjoying their honeymoon, until Bella realizes that she’s pregnant. The honeymoon scenes are completely drawn out, but not much happens in the beginning of the book Breaking Dawn, so this film had to have some drawn out scenes. Not much action occurs until the very end, which is actually exciting and fun to watch. The birth is scene is hard to watch, it’s quite gory and surprisingly dark for a PG-13 film.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part1 is highly recommended to fans and readers. The books are amazing, and unfortunately the movies don’t do them justice, but to see the characters come alive on the big screen is really fun to watch. Catch the film this holiday season and prepare for the final film next November.
