Movie Review: Breaking Dawn Part 2
Opened November 16, 2012
Runtime: 1 hr 56 min
Review by: Athenna
Bella (Kristen Stewart) awakes -- as a vampire -- from her life-threatening labor, and her newborn daughter, Renesmee, proves to be very special indeed. While Bella adjusts to her new state of being, Renesmee experiences accelerated growth. When the Volturi learn of the baby's existence, they declare her to be an abomination and sentence the Cullens to death. Bella, Edward (Robert Pattinson) and the rest of the clan seek help from allies around the world to protect their family.
So yes we are at the end of the saga. I'm sure every one has their feelings on that, from excitement (Stephanie) that the hoopla will finaly be over to sadness that its done. Well I fall some were in-between. I loved the books and enjoyed the movies, but was never a giant finatic about it.
Let's talk about the last chapter of the saga.
***WARNING THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SMALL SPOILERS TO THE MOVIE/BOOK***
OK, of course this movie covers the birth of Renesmee and the new Bella in her vampire body. Bella takes to vampireisim better than any has ever seen. But just when they think everything just might be going good, Alice gets a vision of the the Voluri on their way to forks to distroy all of them. All because they had a witness say they have created an immortal child. So in order to prove that is not the case the Cullens split up to track down and ask all of there allies world wide to stand witness against the Volutri.
There was a few super cheesy moments but overall I thought they ended the saga on a good note. I liked seeing all the different clans and their special abilities. I thought the baby Renesmee was a bit on the creapy side. I would have like to see more of the wolves but over all it was pretty good.
I thought the scene with Jacob and Charlie in the forest when Jacob reviels his secret was hilarious. Charlie looked so uncomfertable with a naked Jacob in the forest with him. The fight scene at the end took me by surprise. I liked the added scene it made the ending a bit more exciting than the way it took place in the book. Over all i thought it was a great conclusion to the saga.
