Based on the best-selling series of books by Stephenie Meyers, the final episode in the epic love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Bella is learning to use her vampire abilities and their daughter Renesmme is rapidly growing. Another vampire coming to visit the family sees Renesmme and believes she is an immortal which is forbidden by the Volturri. It’s a violation to turn a child and the penalty is death for both the child and the person who turned them. They believe an immortal child is too dangerous because of immaturity. The Cullen’s try to convince others who will stand with them that Renesmme is not a threat.
Followers and fans of this series will love, haters of the series will hate. Those on the fence will find this film not too bad. Strikes a middle ground between sappy and unbearable. If only “real people” could ever look this good “all” the time. One question, why do people who can run really fast and can fly drive a car? 3* (This movie is OK)
