The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Movie Review
If you have been anywhere near a movie park, book store or magazine rack in the past three years, then you know the Twilight phenomenon is unavoidable. The tale of sparkly vampires and Abercrombie werewolves hits theaters again with Eclipse opening this week. The question on our minds is, will the third installment in the series improved on melodramatic suck fest of the first two, the answer, yes and no.
In Eclipse, the always -- Bella played by Kristen Stewart is wrestling with her desire to become a vampire. At the same time, she is doing her best not to become the meat in a vampire-werewolf sandwich, the bread being Edward the vampire played by Robert Pattinson and Jacob the werewolf played by Taylor Lautner, but everyone needs to put there Degrassi drama aside to battle a force of new vindictive vampires led by this savage Victoria now played by Bryce Dallas Howard. All of the warfare and action pretty much serves as the backdrop to the achy-breaky love triangle which is precisely the thing that made the series a huge success with its core demographic and the head scratcher for everyone else.
Kristen Stewart has lightened up a bit as Bella but Pattinson’s lifeless line delivery has grown old. Lautner seems to be the only one deeply invested in his role.
David Slade who directed 30 Days of Night brings a new sensibility to the table. The action quotient is definitely higher and there is some call creepy sequences involving the new vampires. But, sometimes the film is crushed beneath the weight of its own angst. If you are a Twilight fan, you don’t need us to tell you to go see it. For everyone else IGN gave it a three out of five stars. It’s the best of the series but that might not be saying much.
