The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Review

Star Cast: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Billy Burke, Mackenzie Foy, Michael Sheen.

What’s Good: The music; the action in the climax; that the franchise finally ends.

What’s Bad: The mediocre performances; the boring story.

Watch or Not?: If you are a fan of the Twilight series, here’s the final part that will put at ease. If not, save your money.

Let’s face it; Twilight is the Hollywood equivalent of Salman Khan: makes truckloads of money, scoffs at basic intellect, acting etc. and you can’t wait for the shirt to come off.

The final instalment of the Twilight saga goes in line with the rest of the movies and finally puts an end to Bella’s seemingly difficult struggle between her vampire boyfriend-husband and werewolf friend. Or something like that.

For those who’ve come late, here’s a quick recap of what happened in the four previous films. An ordinary teenager Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) falls in love with (she later finds out) a vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). But there’s a hot werewolf, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), who loves her as well and is always by her side. Much to Jacob’s protests, Bella decides to marry Edward, but the Volturi (a coven of powerful vampires) insist that Bella must be turned to a vampire soon. In the last movie, Bella was pregnant with her child and on hanging on to her dear life at childbirth. In order to save her, Edward turns her to a vampire.

Finally a vampire, Bella is now sharper and even looks sexier with her smouldering eyes. She quenches her newfound thirst for blood, tests her super-speed, heightened senses and other vampire powers. When Bella sees her baby, Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), the infant, who’s just a few days old, already has teeth. Bella and Edward’s baby is a curious mix of vampire and human who grows at an unnatural rate. If that isn’t enough to confuddle the newly-turned vampire, Jacob confesses that he has “imprinted” her (Jacob is Renesmee’s soul mate).

While Bella is getting used to her child’s speedy growth, another vampire mistakes Renesmee to be an “immortal child” and brings in the ruthless Volturi to rid the child.

Will Bella and Edward save their child? How will they do it? Does Jacob’s love survive? Will this franchise finally end? Yes.
