Independent Cinema - Breaking Dawn Part 2 Review

Independent Cinema writes: The tale of two star-crossed lovers has finally reached its conclusion. The unlikely romance of a human and a vampire has been at the center of pop culture since 2008 when the first Twilight movie was thrown into the wild, for teenage girls to attach themselves to like a bee to honey. What has been baffling for these past 5 years has been how these films have had the longevity they’ve had. This is arguably one of the worst movie series to get 5 iterations not because they don’t have interesting concepts (there are some things that could have been great, such as the Volturi, but are undermined by awful ideas and an awful script) but because they are awfully written and it is only when the movies poke fun at themselves that there are great moments. I should preface by saying I watched all of the films preceding this final iteration only recently for the first time, and out of all of them, I enjoyed the first one the most. Eclipse was perhaps the most daring of them all, and the one that had the promise of being something great (after all, it was directed by David Slade, the guy who directed Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night), but it was ultimately the most self-aware film which supplied the most entertainment. Twilight was great because it noted its ridiculous premise and horrendous concepts, and utilizing the camera to point out how awful everything is, the film rises to a B-movie level that none of the other films even attempted to reach.
