The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ½

Amber's 'Shit' List

“I just watched a kid I knew for his whole life turn into a very large dog…”

There we go, finally reached the end of this franchise and what better way to end than another very boring and flimsy narrative that feels stretched even when it runs the shortest. 

Here’s some random thoughts I had, 

- The running motion/cgi has somehow gotten worse in this one.
- Bella and Edward on the cliff might genuinely feature the worst acting in this entire franchise.
- What’s with the editing and pacing here? I got whiplash from how quickly the scenes cut. 
- What is with the creepy CGI baby?! Why?! 
- “You imprinted on my daughter?! She’s a baby!”
- It’s official, Charlie is by far the best character and actor in this entire franchise. Billy Burke steals every single scene he’s in, and somehow makes even the worst dialogue work. 
- The entire plot hinges on a misunderstanding about the child? No one just explains what happened to the villains…
- Still zero chemistry between any character.
- The dialogue is at an all time low in this film, the ‘emotional’ scenes are so awkwardly written and just dire. 
- Why does this film become Avengers halfway through? Collecting a bunch of random superpowered vampires who’ve never been mentioned before for the showdown. It’s just strange. 
- I guess vampires don’t sparkle in sunlight now? Half the film is in broad daylight yet none of them sparkle, a major plot point in previous movies… 
- Finally, some actual Michael Sheen moments, but even he can’t shine here, other than his wonderful cackling laugh. 
- The action in the fight scene is so so badly shot and edited. 
- There’s something so unemotional and Unepic about this ‘epic’ showdown. 
- THE FUCKING VISION COP OUT! That is officially the worst thing these films do. I genuinely can’t think of anything worse than having these big deaths in the final fight turn out to be a fucking dream.
- Lead villains just fuck off at the end and everyone lives happily ever after. Michael Sheen’s lead villain basically shrugs and just goes home.
- Everyone’s just fine that Jacob imprinted now I guess? 
- No meaningful resolutions to any characters arcs, especially Charlie who is seemingly just forgotten.  
- The God awful music and montage at the end just sums up this franchise. Shite.
