I am a martyr, I guess. My wife suggested to watch Twilight 2 yesterday. I had seen part 1 and it was a hell to sit through as you could see in my review. But all the fans told me and tried to convince me that in this vampire (sigh) flick there would be action. I agree, there is action...after waiting 90 minutes. Again it's a lot of blah blah and again it's one for teenagers. I just can't get it what an adult could love in this peace of celluloid shite, or you must be into Titanic and others of that kind. In the second part Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has to choose between Edward Cullen (Robert Pattison) a vampire and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) a werewolf. That is in fact the story, which one will it be...oooooh scary isn't it. For me the wrong part was almost immediately in the movie, the glistening Edward Cullen while walking in the sun. I was looking forward to meet the werewolfs but sadly it was all CGI, and not from a perfect kind. I mean, if you have seen 'Wolfman' their they use CGI too but much better and scarier. Maybe I am getting old but if I say An American Werewolf In London or The Howling I guess you all know what I mean. The best part is in the last half hour and takes only 15 minutes to watch. Yes, real vampires, the Volturi. That was the only part that satisfied me. I thought, hey, Aro Volturi is great, reminded me of Interview With A Vampire and wait a minute, Aro is played by Michael Sheen, Lucian in the Underworld franchise. He really is the only one that gave a great performance. The other Volturi were great too but didn't say that much. It is really those gang of Volturi that makes the movie watchable but sadly, you will have to take the lamentations of the others to get to that scene, doing that I always annoyed my immortal one with listening to the soundtrack and guessing who's playing now...do I need to say more? And waiting for the end credits to see if I guessed them right.
