Could OMG! OMG! OMG! suffice for a movie review? From the moment the credits opened in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 I had goosebumps. The film opens where Part 1 ended, as we see the world through Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) newborn red, vampiric eyes seeing for the first time floating dust particles and a blade of grass embedded in a throw rug. Writer Melissa Rosenberg and director Bill Condon magnificently honor this last installment of Stephenie Meyer’s quadrilogy of books.
Bella reacting to the news that Jacob (Taylor Lautner) has imprinted on Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), is among the Top 5 best scenes from the pantheon of THE TWILIGHT SAGA movies. The cottage is as breathtakingly quaint as it is in your imagination. Edward (Robert Pattinson) is less sparkly and the constant, almost obsessive, attention to Bella’s safety gives way to a passionate and uber-sexy husband and father. Ladies, the feather bedroom scene in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 is nothing compared to this movie. Props to Condon for keeping all the passion while still preserving the PG-13 rating.
A key component of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 is the assortment of vampires that come to stay at the Cullen residence to witness on behalf of the Cullen clan. I particularly enjoyed Benjamin (Rami Malek), as the young, eager and approachable vampire. Joe Anderson’s portrayal of Allistair brings this crusty vampire to life. Stefan (Guri Weinberg) and Vladmir (Noel Fisher) bring a bit of humor to this eclectic and tenuous alliance. The Amazon sisters Senna (Tracey Heggins) and Zafrina (Judith Shekoni) embody their mysterious roots.
Now let’s get down to the question you are really waiting for because I know as a Twihard, you have obsessed over every detail of every trailer and are confused by the dramatic battle scene that is portrayed. All that can be said is that I have never been that close to actually hyperventilating in a movie. You will not be disappointed.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 is worth standing in line in cold weather to see the midnight show. I’m looking forward to seeing it again (and maybe again). THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 is so well done, even your long-suffering boyfriend or husband won’t mind standing in line either.
