Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review

Wow, The Twilight Saga is over. It’s been the talk of the TwiHards for nearly a decade and now it’s all coming to an end. But it won’t be ending the same as the book. Stephanie Meyer thought it would be the perfect way to excite movie fans and book fans in the like.

We get to see the one thing we’ve been waiting for though, and that’s Bella as a vampire. Kristen Stewart rocks the role! Her transformation from clumsy sweet Bella to hard as nails super vamp was amazing. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t focus more on the fact that Bella’s nearly skips over being a newborn vampire because her self control is so strong. In the book, it sets the mood for her getting to meet her daughter Renesmee for the first time. But the things that were missed or changed for theatrical value were nothing compared to the massive twist at the end.

We get to meet Renesmee finally and see her rapid growth as well as special gifts of her own. Then all the vampires that have gathered from around the world as well. Some with extraordinary gifts.

The MAJOR change from the book to film is the epic fight scene. It’s the moment that the entire theater either gasped or screamed out in terror. As the fight commences you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat shouting and then crying for the characters you love so much. All to be thrown for an even bigger loop. One that I accidentally screamed out “I knew it!” for. That’s probably giving out too much of a spoiler as it is but you really need to see the movie for the full effect.

Bill Condon pays an amazing tribute to all of the films at the end making the finale of the Twilight Saga bittersweet. Fans will love it. 

Breaking Dawn Part 2 is out in theaters nationwide now. It’s an exciting movie even if you aren’t a TwiHard. Even the guys will like it.
