Trivia

In the stories that Billy Black tells at the bonfire, the third wife was originally going to be played by Kristen Stewart. She did perform the scene but the director David Slade and author Stephenie Meyer thought it had an unintentional comical effect. See more »

Goofs

When Jacob shows up at Bella's school his hair appears to be wet and lying flat. However when he and Bella arrive at Sam's house his hair is fully dry. Since it is about a fifteen to twenty minute motorcycle ride from Forks to Sam's house on the reservation and Jacob doesn't wear a helmet, it is completely possible that his hair dried in the wind on the way. Also, his temperature (and therefore his head) runs very hot, which may have helped speed up the drying since his hair is very short. See more »

Quotes

Bella Swan: [Jake just found out Bella plans to marry Edward] Jake, please!
Jacob Black: [seething with fury] I'm done! I am so done!
Bella Swan: [wanting to make things right] What can I do?
Jacob Black: You can't do anything. I can, by going out there and killing something!
[continues walking away]
Bella Swan: [shaky with intense emotion, stammers a little] No! You're not thinking clearly! Don't do that!
Jacob Black: Maybe I'll get myself killed and make it simple for you.
Bella Swan: No! Just, Jake, stay!
Jacob Black: Why?
[walks towards her]

Tedious boring and meaningless
6 July 2010 | by (Reading, PA) – See all my reviews

As bad as the first Twilight was this is a whole new level. The bland and tedious characters lack chemistry, life, personality which sort of makes sense because most of them are undead.

The film continues Bella's meaningless coin flip decision between Jacob the skin-walker (I refuse to refer to these as werewolves) and Edward the fairy. Every sentence out each character's mouth, particularly the main characters, is stilted and stale. They can't even articulate their lines let alone deliver them with any depth - not that there is any depth to the script or story here, there isn't.

Even the fights are bland with vampires getting snapped apart like they were porcelain dolls and the only main threat of the movie - an army of New Born vampires - ending up being overcome with GREAT EASE. Also the division of the skin-walkers and "vampires" is suddenly bridged, there's no exploration of the issues between their kind or how to resolve them, just a randomly quick decision to work together despite the fact they hated each other a moment ago.

The film's focus, instead of the parts that might have proved interesting, is in the emotionless and empty romance between two obscenely pale individuals and the muscular third wheel. Any attraction I could have had to Kristen Stewart is erased by her terrible delivery, empty eyed stare and general lack of emotion.

Bland from start to finish and painful to anyone who genuinely likes good films. If you are brave enough to see it I recommend drinking something that will erase the memory and numb the pain afterward.
