Not bad, not perfect either
26 February 2018 | by ippolitimichelinaSee all my reviews

Plot I found it catchy most of the time.

Music

I felt like the music wasn't always matching the scene, for example, during some tense scenes they used semi sad music. Likewise, during some nice/cool scenes the music was rather nostalgic

Actor's performance

They were either overacting or not showing emotions at all. For example: Mr Tanner and Caroline. Also, what's with Elena's facial expression....it's always the same

PS: everything would be better that Twilight, that's pure garbage (both movies and books)
