This is the only Twilight film that I found watchable. Simply because the character Jacob Black seemed to make apathetic Bella Swan smile and laugh for once, he seemed a lot healthier for her character, and the style of the film was lovely, I wish they would have reused Chris Weitz as the director for the rest of the film series..

I have never read the books (nor will I ever) and I didn't really care for the first one. The acting in the first one was beyond terrible and Kristen Stewart is just a depressing teenager, I can hardly stand it.

This movie is infinitely better than the first movie. Yes, the acting is still pretty bad (though not nearly as bad as the first one) but I think the main reason why I like it is because of the Taylor Lautner dude. He is a stud (unlike Edward).

I would choose this teen flick over any predictable, un artistic drama out right …

This film didn't quite "hit it" the way the first one did. To begin, the beginning of the film felt a little hurried. One minute everyone was at a birthday party next Edward is telling Bella that he has to leave her. It seemed to have come out of left field. Speaking of Edward and Bella, they chemistry was definitely lacking this time around. I can honestly say that I didn't really care about their love. I almost wanted Bella to be with wolf boy, because that relationship was just so much more interesting.
Also, the writing was just a little bit dramatic for me. Every time that Edward and wolf boy spoke it seemed like they were reciting a Shakesperian sonnet or tragedy and it became annoying. Stewart was by far the best character in this film. She stayed consistently tragic, …
