Cast overview, first billed only:
Gregory Tyree Boyce ...


Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarries and Bella chooses to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met. He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance - unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. That's right - vampire. But he doesn't have fangs - that's just in the movies. And he doesn't... Written by Summit Entertainment

Very disappointing
9 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I couldn't wait to see my favorite book being brought to life on the big screen and instead 'Twilight' was released, in no way did it represent the book, it was an extremely disappointing movie.

I appreciate this was a low budget film but come on..... the only way I knew the plot to this story was because I've read the book, if I hadn't have, I wouldn't have had a clue what this film was about, it felt like I was watching trailers not a movie.

The Cullen's except for maybe Alice and Emmet were all completely wrong, as was Jake and his friends. What was with Jake's hair? You could tell it was false. James was like I imagined, however I thought Victoria had red hair? as for Edward Cullen he was descried as angelic looking, very well turned out wearing designer clothes, graceful and polite and he was none of the above, in fact he was quite the opposite all of the Cullen's were, none of them had the right actions or looks, and why was Bella so miserable and moody she didn't came across that way in the book.

This movie and any others after will only be famous because of the books, and if the first movie Twilight is anything to go by the rest are going to be just as bad if not worse, if they insist on making any more movies then will someone please read the books and interpret the characters, scenes, actions everything correctly before putting us through another bad film, at least that way something good might be produced and worthy to watch.

I would recommend the books to anyone but I definitely tell them to stay well clear of the film/s.
