Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 (Twilight) Movie review
At last, Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are getting married. When Jacob (Taylor Lautner) finds out that Bella wants to spend her honeymoon as a human, he is horrified -- for Edward's passion could accidentally kill her. Bella does indeed survive her honeymoon, but a new complication arises when she discovers that she's pregnant -- and the child is growing at an alarming rate. The pregnancy sets the wolves against Bella and Edward, but Jacob vows to protect his friend.
Sweet Romance. Yes, this movie played like a romance novel. It began with the wedding invitations. An angry and tormented Jacob. Bella's jittery nightmares. A cameo appearance from Ms. Myers, the author at the wedding. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. The honeymoon was to die for. And there were some funny lines where I giggled. The innocent beginning to their physical relationship with a display of Edward's barely restrained strength during their well done love scene - then the bruises on Bella, followed by Edward's guilt. I enjoyed this movie, but out of the rest of them maybe not as much since it was rather slow. The special effects on Bella's dying pregnant body and her rebirth was very well done. There was a few fight scenes and they were short and mild. My overall rating is 3.5 fangs. Enjoyable and well-done. But I took of 1.5 fangs because I felt like the movie company just wanted to make money by prolonging the 2nd part of the movie and not combining it. There were scenes they could have shortened or taken out to make one movie. Now I will warn you, I took my reluctant husband with me, and on the 'man' radar he gave it a 2.5 fangs. But he's a guy and doesn't 'get' it.
