A so/so movie with an incredible ending!!!, 18 November 2012
4/10

I gave it 4 stars only because I'm rounding up from the 3.5 it probably deserves. The first hour and a quarter the movie was cheesy and with horrible lines ("you nicknamed my daughter after the loch Ness monster?) but in my opinion the acting was at least better than the rest. The CGI of the baby and little girl was so horrible I was actually embarrassed for the actors in the scenes who couldn't have known during shooting how silly they would look interacting with it. It was simply awful.

Now, what saves the movie is the last 20 minutes. I thought it was an incredible twist only truly able to be appreciated by readers of the books. I bet it made Stephanie Meyer wish she wrote it that way. It was fun to experience the audiences astonishment as events unfolded... And to be honest, I wrestled with my own unexpected feelings as I watched it. In the end though, those last 20 minutes and the great performance (as usual) by Michael Sheen saved the movie from being a wasted night. In fact, the last 20 minutes alone ALMOST makes me want to see it again.
