The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ★★★★½

"My life as a human was over, but I've never felt more alive. I was born to be a vampire."

I am actually heartbroken that The Twilight Saga has come to an end and I will never be able to experience watching these movies for the first time ever again. These evening sessions with my siblings made me feel so peaceful and I will never forget the joy this series brought me. It was such a great surprise as to how much I enjoyed the storyline and I never expected to love it as much as I did. 

The last film was probably my least favorite out of all of them though as the directing was quite messy in some scenes and it didn't seem very clear what was happening exactly, but I can't say that I feel disappointed other than Renesmee's terrifying CGI face in the beginning and why the film crew decided to stop editing her by the end of the film. They should have just left her untouched in the first place because she is a beautiful little girl.

The storyline with Bella turning into a vampire was more exciting than I imagined it would be. This was something that was really entertaining to experience as for 11 years, I have only seen the first film where she already wanted Edward turn her into a vampire. I can't believe how far she has come since then and how much her relationship with Edward has blossomed. The final scene with them made me feel very emotional. It was so interesting to see how Bella was able to let go of her shield and Edward could finally see her thoughts.

I feel like I have so many moments I want to focus on commenting on in my review for this part of the series. The battle scene where I thought Carlisle and Jasper have died made me feel so heartbroken. It was the biggest relief when I realized it was only Alice's vision in the end. I was so shocked during that scene that I literally gasped out loud with my siblings. I am so glad that not a single character has died who I felt a strong connection to.

Finally watching The Twilight Saga after all these years has brought me so much comfort during these difficult times and now I almost feel heartbroken that it is over. I will definitely miss it and I don't care what anyone says about how unrealistic it is. It may be problematic at times, but it doesn't have to be perfect for me to enjoy watching it and it is definitely something that is a guilty pleasure for me.
