The original editor, Art Jones, was to be solely credited for the film. Three months before the film's release, however, Jones was abruptly released by the studio. In regards to that, David Slade later commented that although Jones' edit was good, Summit felt that it didn't have the intensity intended. Summit immediately brought back Nancy Richardson (who edited the first film) to recut and fine-tune the edit. However, Jones' name still made the final credits. See more »

Eclipse was by far my favorite book in the saga. As a guy, I felt it had the perfect blend of action, romance, drama, and suspense. The movie did try to stay true to the book as much as possible but I feel it still lacked what made the book great.
The acting is definitely better over the last two. I still feel a little awkward watching Bella. Edward definitely has gotten better. I've gotten several good laughs out of the movie. Got some nice flashbacks of other characters. But it still lacked overall magic for me.
The things I feel is missing from the movie is suspense and chemistry. The love triangle is back and was a bit more entertaining now that all three of them are interacting more. But I still find the lack of chemistry between the characters glaringly obvious. I often had to think about my feelings back when I was reading the book to fortify what I saw on screen. In my opinion, they used too many words(and dialogue from the book) to describe what's going on instead of SHOWING(acting) us what's going on.
The climax in the book was what made Eclipse my favorite of the saga, however, I can't say the same for the movie. The climax was disappointing and anti-climatic. Such dramatics for a walk in the park.
I still feel the movie deserve the theater experience but I won't say boo to waiting for DVD release.
