Movie Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

It's done. The Twilight Saga, arguably one of the most polarizing movie series in recent memory, reached it's final installment and, dare I say, on a high note. Breaking Dawn Part 2 wasn't perfect by any means, but it was a satisfying conclusion and undoubtedly the best of the series. I liked that it didn't pretend to be anything profound. No complex plots to follow. No intricate twists. No need to go full Inception on it. Haha. I found the scoring exceptional and the soundtrack stunning. The direction was good and the acting performances were actually relatively better. Kristen Stewart, in particular, was quite impressive given how she portrayed the character in previous films. The clumsy and awkward mannerisms were suddenly gone and there's a fierce mean streak in her performance that was surprisingly believable. True, there was still no strong narrative to the film, the editing was a little frenetic and the visual effects were a bit disappointing in parts, but I decidedly and stubbornly overlooked all its shortcomings - if only for that fight sequence that would probably go down as one of the BEST overall scenes of any movie this year. I sometimes tend to lapse into hyperbole and those crazy superlatives, but I'm not kidding. I really wanted to shed a tear just from the clever execution of that one scene. It's nothing groundbreaking really, but it rocked my brain out of my skull. Haha. It was too much to handle. Breaking Dawn Part 2 may still not convert non-Twilight fans, but if you just want to take a little escape from reality with cheese on top, I guess this is the movie to enjoy. Goodbye, Twilight.

A mind blowing plot and excellent performance by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and obviously our werewolf Jacob aka Taylor Lautner. All the Renesmee plot, the fight of the Volturi was excellent and each and every actor has devoted their heart & soul into this movie which has made a large difference in the movie and has exceptionally redefined THE TWILIGHT SAGA!! An absolutely superhit package. The new vampy Bella Cullen was something pretty interesting to look forward to. A lot of notions have been changed about this movie after watching this epic finale.A perfect ending to the epic, but it would be very interesting if we get to see another flick focussing on Jacob & Renesmee. Out of words to express!!!!This is one such movie that you shouldn't miss and if you do its a big loss. I'd suggest spend your weekend with our vampire epic saga..!!!!!
