Movie Reviews

  • you won't be surprised, if you've read the books
    by Linda Holmes [NPR ]
  • too scattered to have anything like an agenda; it's incoherent and dopey and feverishly overdramatic
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • this first part of the saga's two-part finale promises more hilarity to come
    2 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • the narrative goes flat and the ensemble's line readings turn to wood
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
  • the movie is long and uniquely bad
    by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • the last twenty minutes of Breaking Dawn are so harrowing that it’s possible to forget that most of the acting is soap-operatic
    by David Edelstein [New York Magazine ]
  • the film is like a crab cake with three or four bits of crab surrounded by loads of bland stuffing
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the film doesn't have nearly the bite - ferocious or delicious - that any self-respecting vampire movie really should
    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • that all of the tedious exposition has been gotten, glacially, out of the way, "Part II" will probably be terrific
    by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • sexless, bloodless, padded and plodding
    1 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • overall the film is goofy, slight, without a truly deep thought in its pretty little head
    1.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • now really an “R” picture under a “PG” label, and it’s an uncomfortable fit
    2 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • masks its genuine perversity under layers of artifice and saccharine melodrama
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • if by several lengths it is the best of the Twilight movies it is because it has the best story to tell
    3 of 4 by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • everything's all soap-operatic close-ups
    2 of 4 by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • at nearly two hours, the film is too long
    3 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
