Goofs

It is often thought that the moon is full every night during this movie. This is not the case. The moon is full and visible on only two nights during the film - on the night of Edward and Bella's wedding (the first night of their honeymoon) and after Edward and Bella have returned to Forks. The reason for this is that exactly 28 days have passed between those two nights, thus the moon has completed one full cycle. The full moon is shown during these two nights to alert the viewer that Bella's pregnancy has progressed to nearly full-term, even though only 28 days have passed since conception. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bella Swan: Childhood is not from birth to a certain age. And at a certain age, the child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.

Alternate Versions

Extended cut adds the following 7 minutes of footage:
  • The opening titles are now shown in blue instead of red.
  • Alternate opening: At the Volturi headquarters, Valentina, a human, hands the Edward and Bella's wedding invitation card to Aro. Caius comments that the invitation as the Cullen's style of declaring of Bella's forthcoming "embrace" as a vampire and a way of mocking the Volturi for their delays. While the three leave the room, Aro's servants disposed Valentina along with the pile of dead humans.
  • In the "Bride of Frankenstein" scene, Edwards sits down on his hat and leaves the theater while the audience is frightened at the movie.
  • Esme Island: Edward makes breakfast for Bella. She comments about being hungry and they talk about her upcoming "turning". They kiss again just before the housekeepers arrive on boat.
  • Esme asks Rosalie to prepare some food for Jacob while watching over a sick Bella. Jacob at first declines but Esme insisted Rosalie to do so. She comes back with a hot dog on a dog bowl. Jacob takes a bit and then throws the bowl at Rosalie much to Emmet and Edward's laughter. Unimpressed, Rosalie simply leaves the room.
  • Alice joins Jacob at the balcony saying that standing next to him is like closing her eyes. Jacob could only say that he's glad to help.
  • Because Jacob has imprinted with Renesmee, Edward breaks Jacob's arm and throws him at a wall to keep him away from fighting the other werewolves. He later resets his arm.

Boring
11 February 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) get married and travel to Rio de Janeiro for honeymoon. Bella gets pregnant but sooner she learns that the fetus is a blood sucker that is draining her life. The Cullen clan and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) tolerate each other to take care of Bella that will certainly die on the delivery.

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" is a boring film since the greedy producers decided to split a single story in parts one and two. Therefore, they shot the storyline "Bella and Edward get married, travel in honeymoon and Bella gets pregnant but the baby threats her life" along 117 minutes running time. I believe that even the greatest fan of The Twilight Saga might have found this film boring. Last but not the least, I bought also the CD and the music score is terrible. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Amanhecer" ("Dawning")
