Keep your expectations low and have fun
This movie greatly exceeded my expectations, but that is because they
were low. I've read and enjoyed all of the books but it is really an
exception to my movie going/reading habits. When Edward enters the
screen for the first time they film it in slow motion, while he gives a
bit of a swagger, and super-cheesy music plays. Bwahahaha! Love it.
It does not significantly differ from the books. The wolves, well,
they're okay, not fab but not so realistic either. I recall seeing the
Golden Compass (which Weitz BOMBED) and the daemons were similar.
Fortunately they don't talk or tap dance.
I'm disappointed in Robert Pattinson. He actually can act, but for some
reason he decided to adopt a mono-expression of pain and suffering from
the very beginning until the end. Stewart is okay, I have actually
always enjoyed her Bella, who is very introverted. Taylor vastly
improves upon the book character, who I find to be a cocky little git.
So with all this bad stuff, why did I enjoy the movie? Because it was
campy and fun, and I didn't take it too seriously. I recommend large
amounts of audience participation and to go when there are a maximum
levels of gushy teenage girls around you, so that they squeal when the
trailer for "Remember Me" comes on..

Seriously, why does Emmerich even bother casting actors? Just show stuff blowing up. That's all he cares about. Watching this is like seeing any number of faceless human traits and personalities in human skin. There's not a shred of acting going on here, because everyone has a one-line definition of who their character is and what he does. John Cusack? Writer and terrible dad. Woody Harrelson? Crazy government conspiracy cook. Danny Glover? Selfless president. Chiwetel Ejiofor? Intelligent scientist with all the answers. Roland, next time, just blow stuff up. Save the money you'd be paying actors and just blow more stuff up..
Way better than the first, but still not very good.
I really don't see why so many people seem to think that this movie is
worse than the first one. The first one was sooooo boring. Nothing
happened, the characters were bland, and it was way to dramatic. Now
personally, I don't care if vampires sparkle or don't eat humans, I
really don't care, but couldn't you give them personality.
Unfortunatlly they don't give the characters much more personality in
this film, but I can definitely say I liked it more. Maybe it was
because I watched the first two back to back and it was just coming off
on how boring the first one was, but I have to admit, I didn't hate
this film. Is it good, no, but it's passable.
There's actually some fighting, it lightens up a little bit, and there
is actually some conflict. I like the three leads in other roles they
played, but they just need better direction.
Overall, not recommended, but if you had a choice between the first
two, pick this one, at the very least you'll have fun mocking it..
