The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part I

Rated 2.0

The Stephenie Meyer tween vampire phenomenon gets notably twisted and bloodier with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part I, easily the most demented, and most watchable, chapter in the series so far. That said, I still haven’t met a Twilight movie I’ve liked. This is the first movie in the series to have something resembling a dramatic pulse. Some of the thanks can probably go to director Bill Condon, who has managed a few good films in his career such as Dreamgirls and Gods and Monsters. Condon can’t direct an action scene to save his life, but he handles dramatic tension well. Taylor Lautner almost looks like he can act in this film, so that’s a directorial accomplishment right there. Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) get married and have one of cinema’s all-time shitty honeymoons as Bella gets pregnant with a vampire baby that tears up her insides. That plot twist alone makes this my favorite Twilight yet. Still don’t like these movies, but the vampire baby definitely got my attention
