Goofs

When Edward is fighting Victoria and Riley, Bella cuts her arm with a rock. When you see the blood run down it clearly shows that she had cut under her sleeve, but when Edward wraps her arm he wraps close to her wrist. This is not near where the blood came from. See more »

Quotes

Jasper Hale: [after Carlisle knocks Edward on his back after their mock fight] One more thing. Never turn your back on your enemy.

Sort of pretentious
11 July 2010 | by alienworldsSee all my reviews

It was predictable that they would make this movie, but it probably will not go down in horror film history as anything special because it is a fairly run of the mill horror film. It was watchable but not all that interesting to me. I think I have a good open mind for new film experiences but I think this saga is sort of pretentious. Like a copy of the Underworld saga but more easy on the eyes, it doesn't really add anything interesting to the genre of werewolf films or the genre of vampire films. Kind of a ho hum movie to me, oh well, there are other things to watch. One of the problems that I can see with this series is that they have to many young characters in an area that would not be so dominated by young people-as in the area of the occult. There would be visibly older people as much as there would be visibly younger people. Maybe it is like saying 'we were left out by you and now we are leaving you out' type of thing, in terms of the film being a reaction against so little acting work often being given to younger actors in general for serious parts. Maybe. It is sort of like a Peanuts cartoon where adults are portrayed as fuzzy indistinct nuisances.
