-I divided this review into two parts. The first part doesn’t have any spoilers. The second does.-
I didn’t have high hopes for this film.
I was strongly against Summit making Breaking Dawn two films. In my opinion, there just isn’t enough content in the book to deserve two films.
I think I was right.
The CGI wasn’t all the good either. I was shocked at who horrible Reneesme looked in the beginning of the movie as a baby. Once she got older, and they started using real people, it was much better. Also… was it just my theatre, or was it that whenever they moved the camera, it got really blurry. It almost looked like they were shooting it on an old iPod Touch when they moved the camera from left-right (and vice versa). Honestly… I’ve seen some pretty bad cinematography, but you honestly cannot tell me that no one noticed that during post-production. Really? That is just embarrassing.
Nothing was particularly good regarding the acting, either.
The ending was shocking. I couldn’t believe what was going on. It was ingenious, and well done. I was surprised with how well the Twilight fandom kept it a secret. I went to the film a week after it had been released, and I had no idea!
Overall, I’m going to giver Breaking Dawn Part 2 a 3/5 for being better than the original Twilight movie.
