My my my!!! I often thought during the reading of Breaking Dawn on how they were going to make a movie on it? Low and behold the final book's adaptation arrives on the big screen. Kudos to the make up crew who made Bella's pregnant transformation look all too real, often at times Kristen Stewart almost looked anorexic (not close from real life) Newly appointed director Bill Condon gets his turn at bat as he adapts to the big screen what must've been the hardest of the series to adapt. Read the book and you will see why. I found this movie good however like i always say the book was way better. Breaking dawn part 2 is to be released in 2012 and i only hope it fills the gaps that were leftout of the book!

I feel like the Twilight saga takes a giant step back with this fourth film. While the rivalry between vampire and werewolf mythology that the series has created is compelling on the surface, the film instead contains mostly lots of talking, more moody glances (ala the first film), and soap opera-y declarations. The final twenty minutes is the film's best as the stakes and action are ramped up tremendously, but the film takes it's sweet time getting back into the flow of the story and that hurts the pacing. As with each film, the best part of the film is the soundtrack, which succeeds independent of the film.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) get married and produces a baby that eats up all the nutrients from his mother. Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) predicts that Bella would die once she gets pregnant. The werewolf's pack leader Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer) wants Bella killed before the baby is born but Jacob sides with the Cullen's. Edward stops the battle by revealing that "Jacob has imprinted on the baby, meaning he'll love Renesmee forever, and the werewolf's code dictates the imprinted one of a member of the pack cannot be harmed." Acting was better for Lautner and Stewart, unfortunately I cannot say the same for Pattinson. The cinematography was good and soundtrack applicable for the film. The pace of the picture in the beginning was snail paced, especi...

@jutincamp  Funny you say that, because I never saw one good review for this film.  The only people who would say anything positive about this are the fans.

Unsurprisingly, this has been #1 three weeks running. Despite the premise, I tried to give this a shot, but I did not enjoy the first film, and didn't even bother with any of the sequels. I don't understand the appeal myself, but I can't fault fans too much (after all, I'm a huge Star Wars and Harry Potter fan). If I want some tween-age fix, I'll wait for The Hunger Games in March.

Yeah I hear it is a bit better than the original, per wife, but I can't see it being very good.
