The original Twilight movie was released in 2008, and was the first of five included in the saga. Here’s some reviews from top critics: Sukhdev Sandu from Daily Telegraph said ‘I watched Twilight in a cinema full of young girls who, when they weren’t texting friends and guzzling soft drinks, giggled, sighed and exhaled with a passion that was not only endearing, but a measure of its emotional truth.’
Daniel Etherington from Film 4 though the fim was ‘Not quite the solid grounding a major new franchise needs, but a stylish and enjoyable supernatural emo romance.’ You can read more reviews of Twilight on Rottontomatoes.com.
Katie Rich reviewed ‘New Moon’: ‘A follow-up to Twilight that manages both to stay true to the nature of the first film and also improve on it a bit. Director Chris Weitz sticks with the moody Pacific Northwest scenery and intense romance but also infuses a zippy, poppier sensibility, meaning the two-plus hours move along swiftly and with more humor that the first film.’ Read the full review at Cinemablend.com.
Mali Elfman reviewed Eclipse: ‘I’m not a Twi-Hard, this is not my favorite genre, BUT I will say that out of all the Twilight films this one is the best. It has more action, more tension, better character development, and unlike the previous films a story to follow.’ Read the full review at Screencrave.com.
Here’s what Philip French thought of Breaking Dawn Part 1: ‘This part deals exclusively with matters matrimonial and obstetric as 18-year-old, small-town sheriff’s daughter Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) from Washington State marries pale, ageless vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and surrenders her virginity on a honeymoon in Brazil. It turns out to be not a consummation devoutly to be wished, but a horror story realising every nightmare about wedding nights and pregnancy.’ Read the full review at Guardian.co.uk.
