The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1Also available on Blu-Ray

The penultimate chapter in the Twilight saga which sees Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) finally tie the knot. While Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn book was the last in the series, it's been split into two parts for the movies - this is the first.

After their secluded honeymoon off the coast of Brazil, the newlyweds find turmoil in the form of an unexpected pregnancy. The half-human half-vampire grows at an alarming rate, with the birth threatening to end Bella’s life. Fearing the worse for their people, The Quileute and The Volturi seek to destroy the unborn being. Meanwhile, the pregnancy brings an unexpected development for Jacob (Taylor Lautner)...

Not really what I was expecting, it wasn't as action packed as i thought it would be.

I'm not really a love sick person and part one really put me off watching part 2.

A.V. Club (USA)

It may be impossible for anyone but existing fans to take this seriously, but for the unconverted, it's still a legitimately engaging, gape-worthy nutso spectacle.

Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)

Absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and has without doubt the most blood-curdling scene of live childbirth in a PG-13 movie.

Empire (UK)

The acting's better than it's ever been, but with the best will in the world, this can't get past the fact that the story's demented.

The film is like a crab cake with three or four bits of crab surrounded by loads of bland stuffing...

New York Times

The latest and best of the movies about a girl, her vampire and their impossible, ridiculously appealing - yes, I surrendered - love story.

An emotionally fraught, dramatically leaden tale...

Total Film (UK)

Flat performances, dodgy plotting and rubbish talking wolves aside, this is a weirdly grim addition to the supposedly tween-friendly franchise, less fairy tale than misjudged horror show.

Variety (USA)

Disappointing that a story so pregnant with dramatic possibilities should wind up feeling like such an unconsummated opportunity.

Flicks.co.nz "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1" Movie Review

Flicks.co.nz rating


Rebecca Barry Hill, Flicks.co.nz

Aside from the fact that the fourth instalment in the Twilight film series sounds like a description of flatulence, Breaking Dawn is the worst Twilight film to date. The story is weak, the script embarrassing and the action, when there is any, completely silly. Twilight has never been the most high-brow phenomenon but what the first three films had in spades – erotic tension – falls as limp as a cold vampire appendage.

It’s not entirely the fault of the filmmakers, who want to remain faithful to Stephenie Meyer’s source material. Of course fans want to see Bella and Edward get married and then get down to the business of what people are expected to do on their wedding night (Bella, should you really be shaving your legs now?). But spending a third of the movie on honeymoon with the newly consummated couple is about as exciting as watching a game of chess. Guess what else they do on honeymoon? They play chess.

The fallout from this dreamy act, which has the same effect as Mulder and Scully getting it on, is the prospect of a vampire baby who may or may not slowly kill Bella from the inside. Note the word ‘slowly’. There’s little else in the drawn-out finale to explore here, other than Jacob’s obvious disgust and his loyalty to Bella which puts him at odds with his wolverine family.

It’s not entirely without merit. There are funny wedding speeches, a couple of sexy bits, blood smoothies and a climax reminiscent of Alien. But where the original films made up for their shortfalls with edgy cinematography, Bill Condon’s direction is as flat as the plot. Hurry up and get to the final film would you? This one’s a bit whiffy.
