A lonely doctor who once occupied an unusual lakeside home begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
The final Twilight Saga begins with Bella now a vampire learning to use her abilities. And happy to see her daughter, Renesmee is flourishing. But when someone sees Renesmee do something that makes them think that she was turned. This person goes to the Volturi, because it is a violation to turn a child. And the penalty is death for both who turned the child into a vampire and the child, cause they deem a turned child too dangerous. Alice gets a vision of the Volturi coming after them. So the Cullens try to convince them that Renesmee is not a threat. So they ask friends and family to come stand with them.

When Bella is in the cottage re-reading Alice's note, she flips it over to show the title page of Merchant of Venice. There are no smudges on it then but when she goes to the bookcase to pull down the book, she opens it to the front and puts the title page in place and now there are 2 distinct dark fingerprint smudges on the page.

I was almost literally dragged by my ankles to this movie by some friends of mine. In the end I decided to eventually give in and pay a ticket price of £5.70. £5.70? for a twilight ticket. OK I'm not gonna get into that but I was expecting good things.
So the good points first: Taylor Lautner puts in a decent effort. Michael Sheen makes for a good villain.
Taylor Lautner is not what I would call one of the current rising stars. He just doesn't have the talent but...having said that he was the only good guy in the movie who was believable. Michael Sheen is very worthy as a good villain. He has an air of insanity yet I can't put any fault on his performance. For example I can't say that it was Over the top or just a screaming role (In which case Shia LaBeouf should have been cast for that).
Now the negative points: Kristen Stewart can't act for her life, Dakota Fanning was so unconvincing. Rest of the cast was mediocre, CGI and special effects are underwhelming and an absolutely insulting ending.
Kristen Stewart spends the vast majority of the film pulling a stupid childish pout and frown which is not what you want to see from a hit film's protagonist. All of her lines are cringe worthy and poorly written. Her career is failing and her film selection (Snow White and the Huntsman? what the hell was that?) isn't helping her. Dakota Fanning has always annoyed me as an actress. I have nothing against her personally but her Shia La Beouf type role in War of the Worlds just killed it. However Coraline was a revelation on her part and renewed my faith. However she has no stage presence so to speak. Her one line in the film was like something from a family guy cut scene. The rest of the crew were poor and why the hell was baby Renesmee (horrible name) a CGI baby? It just made this film look even more ridiculous.
The whole vampire thing just got ridiculous and the ending? Oh my god, the ending....I will not spoil anything but it was so poor. To finish I will never watch this again. Ever. Fans will probably love it because it's the end and they naturally will defend from criticism with their lives. Anyone else will stop watching after about 10 minutes and I don't blame them. Twilight...the hit series...was an absolute bloody waste of time and money.
