Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson in 'Twilight Breaking Dawn'

Cinema Static on Brusimm reader, Jen C., went and saw The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – part 1 movie last night.  After a wee bit of badgering, begging and asking, she sent me her perspective, or movie review of Breaking Dawn.  This review comes from the perspective of an adult, as you might be able to tell by her commentary.

Thanks Jen!!!

(If you trust my perspectives on movies, I would happily say you can extend that trust to Jen’s perspective also.  I trust what she has to say about movies.  We’re of a similar mind that way.)

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, from Summit Entertainment, is directed by Bill Condon, who is another in a long line of directors that have been tasked by Summit to bring the Twilight book franchise to life.  It’s fascinating that they continually tap new directorial talent to bring the franchise to life.  I presume it’s a cost saving measure, but that’s just a guess on my part.

As if you didn’t know, Twilight: Breaking Dawn stars Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, and oh yea, Robert Pattinson.

Check out the guest movie review after the break:

Jen’s Guest Movie Review of Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn is the fourth attempt to capture the magic of the Twilight book series on film.

It opens with the wedding of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, which is a beautiful affair put together by Edward’s sister Alice.  The wedding brings together the Cullen’s extended vampire family, Bella’s parents and friends, as well as a few of the local werewolves for good measure.

From the wedding we are whisked away to a beautiful, privately owned island off the coast of Rio (I think) where the lovebirds enjoy staying in a serene villa, swimming in the ocean, hiking to breathtaking waterfalls, and most importantly, they consummate their marriage.

Afterwards, things take an unexpected turn when Bella finds herself sick and slowly realizes the reason for her illness is not the food, but that she’s pregnant.

Breaking Dawn was a fun movie to watch, while still being  incredibly corny with the teenage googly eyed love and bad acting.

The scenes with the wolves communicating with one another were incredibly hard to pull off, but fans of the books and movies won’t be able to resist loving it in spite of all that.

It’s a shame they couldn’t have made one movie out of the book, but they ended it in a good place.  It definitely gives viewers something to look forward to, as sad as it is that the next film will be the last!

A footnote from Bruce:  In something I’ve seen & heard Jen say on a few occasions:  “In case you’ve never heard me say it, the books are soooooooooo much better!

Hey Young… yes, the cast has been filled. They filmed both this and the next movie at the same time, so the work is already done. Sorry.
