Adventure - Like the previous four films in the series, this is a young
female-aimed romantic drama with horror elements, but this film plays
up the genre-driven elements and hence has more action and therefore
more male appeal. This also means greater violence, and that and
some sensuality would be of concern for parents of young children.
PROFANITY: 4 miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: Some sensuality without nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, beheadings, bites with minimal blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None. ACTION: Fights including one huge battle. COMEDY: Some comic lines and situations.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average I must admit if you're going to bring the series to a close, "Part 2" does it about as well as it can be done.
USA TodayFull Review Average An epic battle in which vampires and werewolves unite is more fun to watch than sappy vamp love in the 'Twilight' finale.
Washington PostFull Review Below Average "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" will be, unsurprisingly, a silly and somewhat cheesily made waste of time.
NY PostFull Review Above Average As it so often does in these books, the action all comes down to a faceoff on a snowy Pacific Northwest field. But director Bill Condon clearly decided to go for broke with this one, which veers abruptly and delightfully into full-on campy horror movie.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 99 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS from all but the adult and twentysomething males. Their reviews are really good but not quite fantastic. Most of these males enjoyed "Twilight" very much but quite a few only rated it "Good/Average," which is a bit disappointing, but certainly not bad.
Bella (Kristen Stewart) awakens transformed - she is now a mother and finally... a vampire. While her husband Edward (Robert Pattinson) delights in her beauty, speed, and uncommon self-control, newborn Bella has never felt more alive; and the destiny of her best friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) has become entwined in that of their exceptional daughter Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy). The arrival of a creature so rare cements an extended family, but will soon ignite forces that threaten to destroy them all.
