Romantic eyecandy for diehard Twi-hards … that drags on for days

2011-11-21 00:00

CHEESY is one word to describe The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I.

Breaking Dawn is the fourth and final novel in The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, who brought us the untapped world of vampires and werewolves with a powerful storyline centred on love.

But there were parts of the film where I thought “this can’t be serious” — for example when Edward (Robert Pattinson) surprises his newly wedded wife at their wedding ceremony with a gift — Jacob (Taylor Lautner), the werewolf. Then Bella (Kristen Stewart) and the yummy Jacob dance together. I can’t think of any guy who’d hand over the woman he loves to his foe.

The film is concentrated on scenes of love — and those scenes dragged on for days. But, if you’re an advocate of love and romance, I have no doubt you’ll enjoy this sequel.

I also have no doubts that the Twi-hards will melt when they the see the two lovebirds finally tie the knot at a beautiful wedding and unexpectedly have a baby.

The wedding is to die for and, of course, like in any other wedding, the speeches will crack you up. The honeymoon scenes are the most entertaining — people will have to watch the film to understand why — and it was heartbreaking to see Bella deteriorating and Edward watching his wife suffering.

On a lighter note, Jacob is looking hotter in this film, as was evident from the girls’ screams when he took off his shirt.

Do I think the movie was good? It was okay, but too predictable. Do I think there should be a part two? A big no. Lots of people, and especially those who have read the books, already know what’s coming and the directors should have ended it here instead of prolonging it. ***
