Really you would think that making the final movie in the most famous vampire series out there would mean that there would be a lot of effort put into this film but my gosh it failed in every way. With most films, you can summarize the good things about it by using simple words such as epic, touching, well-made, romantic, interesting, or even just engrossing. This film doesn't fall into any of those categories.
The soundtrack for the whole Twilight series is very, very niche and won't appeal to most viewers. It certainly didn't appeal to me. The script is average. The cinematography of this particular film was a nice try but quite honestly it seemed like they skimped on the budget for this film. It was underwhelming compared to what it could have been. Really, I feel like the whole film was underdone because they KNEW that everyone would go see this film no matter how bad it was. The acting in this series has always been lacking but it was actually better in this film than in the other films, mostly thanks to the Volturi. Really, the filmmakers can thank the Volturi for their contributions to this film because without them, this film would have been gosh aweful instead of just below average.
Anyone with high expectations for this film can drop them now. There was no progression in relationships and Twilight is supposed to be a love story! There was zero character development! I will admit that I was somewhat interested in the film as I was watching it but it was ONLY because I was curious as to how it would end. I don't want to spoil the end but there is a bit of a plot twist. Most plot twists are like, "HOLY COW WHAT JUST HAPPENED????" but this one was intriguing in a minor sort of way but quickly faded to, "dude that is just lame."
I always say that any movie can try to make itself better by having 2 good looking people have a sex scene but this one was one of the most gosh awefully boring sex scenes I have ever seen. On a similar note, the WHOLE point of Twilight is love and beautiful people. The people weren't as good looking in this film.
SUMMARY: This film lacked humor, charm, epicness, a soundtrack, acting, cinematography, character development, and pretty much everything else.
The only reason to watch this is to finish the plot for the series and then rage about how gosh awfully boring it is.
THIS FILM SUCKS.
