Breaking Dawn Part 2 hits theaters as it surprises fans

The end is finally here. The final chapter to the Twilight Saga that Twihard fans all over the world have been waiting a year to see has hit theaters.

The film picked up right where it left off with Bella (Kristen Stewart) waking up from her vampiric slumber after having Edward (Robert Pattinson) save her life with a “vampire’s kiss” just moments before dying during childbirth.

Bella begins to test her powers and readjusts to her new role as a mother and vampire. While Bella is out with Renesemee (Mackenzie Foy) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner), Irina from the Denali coven (Maggie Grace) spots the young girl floating in the air catching snowflakes and mistakes her for an Immortal Child.

She reports her findings to the Volturi. Because of the false accusation, the Volturi set out to destroy the Cullens once and for all. The Cullens separate and travel to different regions to bring together an army of their own.

Out of all the Twilight films, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the best one. Although, for a franchise that has made millions of dollars, the CGI effects were amateur. If not all, most of the scenes containing CGI were truly awful, especially when it comes to viewing Renesemee as a baby. At times, it felt out of place and distracted from the story plot itself.

Admittedly, the first half of the film does seem to drag on. The audience gets to witness how awesome Bella thinks her new vampire life is, the rapid growth of Renesemee and of course, there is even more of the cheesy, romantic mush going on between Bella and Edward.


fans shouldn’t be discouraged by how slow the beginning of the film is. Without giving anything away, the final battle seen is exciting to watch, and filled with jaw dropping moments. The last 20 minutes of the movie are the best. The ending has a “shocking” plot twist, which leaves the audience wondering whether or not this is really the end of the Twilight Saga.

On a side note, Stewart’s acting has improved throughout the franchise. Gone were her awkward facial expressions and uncomfortable stances.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 narrowly escaped an R rating instead receiving PG-13 for violence, disturbing images and some sensuality.

The film is guaranteed to be a box office hit, but if you’re not a fan of the saga, you won’t be converted overnight.

Will the ending satisfy Twihards who have been waiting for the conclusion? Maybe. All of the loose ends from the previous films were tied up, and it concluded with a bang.But the fate of the film lies in the hands of the fans.
