Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a romantic fantasy continuation of breaking dawn part 1. This movie has been anticipated by many people around the world, big twilight fans and not so big fans. Even here in South Africa tickets to watch it were sold out in many cinemas. But the question still lies: Is it good enough?
If you’ve read my ‘Sequels Which I’m looking Forward to See’ post, you would know that I’m not the biggest twilight fan. In fact I always regret watching the movies after They are done. The whole vampires and wolves idea is not so appealing to me. The actors and story line just doesn’t cut the cake. There is much more I can criticize about the previous movies but I won’t simply because this one (Part 2) made me speechless.
From the beginning of the movie I was extremely impressed. This movie made me a fan. A fan of Kristen Stewart (Bella), a fan of the movie series, a fan of Bill Condon (Director), ect. In the end I literally felt like standing up and clapping my hands. The main reason I felt this way is because I’ve never watched a movie so unpredictable as Breaking Dawn Part 2.
I honestly think that even if you’ve never watched the previous movies you would enjoy this one. It played with the viewers emotions. It keeps you asking questions. Its captivating. Best of all is how they were able to capture Stephenie Meyer’s words and put it on the screen. The visual effects were astounding, complemented by the music. I’ve never loved Kristen Stewart’s acting, but this movie made me question my judgements. The whole cast did their part in making this movie a success. It was truly magical.
I salute everyone who was involved with the making of the movie. You’ve created a showstopper. What a wonderful conclusion to an awful series.
