Storyline

The final Twilight Saga begins with Bella now a vampire learning to use her abilities. And happy to see her daughter, Renesmee is flourishing. But when someone sees Renesmee do something that makes them think that she was turned. This person goes to the Volturi, because it is a violation to turn a child. And the penalty is death for both who turned the child into a vampire and the child, cause they deem a turned child too dangerous. Alice gets a vision of the Volturi coming after them. So the Cullens try to convince them that Renesmee is not a threat. So they ask friends and family to come stand with them. But when someone who has it in for the Volturi shows up and tells them they should be ready for a fight. And they get ready. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

I loved this film
26 November 2012 | by jspattzfanSee all my reviews

Unlike so many of the other reviewers, I loved this movie. I enjoyed the books(although I realize that they are not great literature) and I feel that Bill Condon did an excellent job with some difficult material. There is a lot of action, a twist at the end(which I did not feel ruined the film as a few others do) and a nostalgic finish.It's a good companion piece to Breaking Dawn 1. The actors continued to make the most of their roles- by this film they were family.The fact that it (and the others) have made so much money attests to the fact that some people do like it, and they are not all teenage girls. So count me as a Twihard who loves the story and the way it was portrayed. It's a classic love story that resonated with a lot of people. It wasn't meant to be "War and Peace", guys.
