The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Okay, but bring on Part 2

A movie very rarely matches up to the book it is based on, and this holds for Breaking Dawn Part 1. The wedding was quite lovely, the birth was very messy and the wolf/vampire fight near the end was, I think, one of the highlights. The wolves "talking" didn't really work and some of the lines were pretty naff. I'm not sure if portrayal of the "change" process really worked unless you had some idea of how the book described it, but then again I have yet to come up with a better way of showing it.

I was a little surprised that they split the book where they did - I thought it would have gone on a bit further as there is a natural break a couple of chapters further on in the book, however leaving it where they did does provide a good start for the next movie.

Overall, it was okay. It is not my favourite of the Twilight movies to date. I will watch it again, but quite possibly not until it comes out on DVD. I am very keen to see what they do with Part 2 though. Roll on Nov 2012!
