'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2': Dean's Review & Full Interviews

Fans at the midnight screenings were raving about the final Twilight movie Friday morning. 

The super-fans have always been a lot more forgiving of these movie's shortcomings, and there are plenty of them in "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2." 

Let’s start with the problems of the movie: it's badly written and amateurishly acted. Other than that, I loved it. 

The first half deals with the conversion of Bella (Kristen Stewart) from human into vampire following her marriage to the vampire, Edward (Robert Pattinson), and how the werewolf Jacob, Taylor Lautner, is dealing with being cast aside.

I found myself laughing out loud at the bad dialogue and awkward moments.

As Bella learns about her new vampire skills, thirst for blood and how the family of vampires and their arch-enemies, the werewolves, team up to protect the half mortal new baby that's viewed by the evil Volturi, as a threat that must be destroyed. That sets up a battle royale, which was a decent battle scene that's surprisingly violent considering the PG-13 rating.

Twilighters will love it all for its sense of completion and also the big surprise that's dropped into it. It’s the movie's only redemption.

"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is strictly for super-fans who won't care about the bad film making and complete lack of chemistry and story. 

It’s barely a Dean's List "C."
