Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Here we are, Breaking Dawn Part 2. Well, I do feel a bit sad that after this, I have nothing to review that’s a love story between a human and a paranormal/supernatural figure while there’s love triangle and villains involved. Sure, it’s not a great story but it at least it gave a term that is “better love story than Twilight”. I am still not a fan of the franchise but I am not in the hate crowd at the same time and I did mention this before. Although, I do have to say this – why is this movie the only Twilight movie to win the “worst picture” category at the Razzies?
No really, I have to ask. With the exception of the first movie, all Twilight movies have gotten the nominations and this one took home seven awards instead of the one before this because of Jack And Jill. Uh, I wanted That’s My Boy to take home worst picture because that one deserved it. It’s a crazy world we are living in and it will go on that way. I don’t mind them taking other categories to be honest but I do need to get this off my chest.
Oh well, on to the movie then. So it begins as Bella Swan starts developing her new vampire powers and went on from speeding towards a climber who was thought to fall to catching a tiger from killing a deer. Also, remember that Bella punched Jacob a couple of movies ago? Well, there’s a pay off to that but he lives long enough to be forever “imprinted” to his daughter. Following Bella having her first vampire sex with Edward, Jacob decides to go to Charlie and tries to deliver news about Bella being a vampire but instead, he strips off in front of him and becomes a werewolf in front of him.
The movie speeds up a bit with Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) going from CGI-induced baby to a normal seven-year-old child and begins developing her powers all with Irina (Maggie Grace) discovering her presence and quickly travels to Volturi HQ about the news. Alice then sees the vision and warns her family about the Volturi’s coming. They travel around to look for other vampires so they could testify that Renesmee is not an immortal which includes Garrett as played by Lee Pace… yeah, I did not know he’s in this movie.
While nothing much happens for a while, there was a flashback involving The Volturi in a village including Jane (Dakota Fanning) throwing a baby to the fire. Later on, Bella leaves Renesmee with Charlie and his new girlfriend Sue Clearwater (Alex Rice) while Jacob protects them and probably the strangest thing happening to the whole franchise – she went to the city to meet up with J. Jenks (Wendell Pierce) and get a fake ID of her and others from him. Okay, I don’t know how Detective Bunk from The Wire appeared in this but this came out of nowhere.
Moving on and it’s the night before the battle as the vampires are having their fun in the bonfire which doesn’t happen much so I’m skipping it to the moment we have been waiting for – a conflict between good and evil. The Cullens and their vampire buddies are united with Jacob’s werewolf pack while The Volturi have gathered their own army. Aro decides to look at what Renesmee and well, you know what’s coming.
What do I say to this? That is really the most memorable thing to happen in the franchise and it’s gonna stuck in my head forever. I’m sorry if I halted the review but Michael Sheen’s hamminess makes me smile and laugh that I would have ended the review on that note but alas, we’re nearly to the end so what happens after that is Irina saw her family and decides to become good again but she instead got beheaded and burn to flames before Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) also bite the dust shortly after which then begins one of the most epic battles ever known (yes, I said it’s epic, so what?).
Jane becomes werewolf food, some vampire gave us a Wilheim Scream and Edward and Bella killed Aro for good which then leads to the battle becoming all just a vision given by Alice. So really, the battle never happened, everybody besides Irina is saved and those two Romanian vampires got angry about this and runs away or something. The movie ends with Alice having a vision with Edward and Bella enjoying their live while Jacob and Renesmee are a couple and it rolls to the longest credit sequence ever which includes known actors from previous installments getting credited here. I am not kidding about that.
Okay, of all the movies in the franchise, this one is really enjoyable even though it has issues as usual. I guess that it’s the one saved best for last and it really is worth checking out, there is a bit of padding but even those have moments. I might disagree with the fact that it won worst picture (again, That’s My Boy should have won) but I can agree that it doesn’t suck as much as the last movie. It is worth checking out even if you wanna make fun of it. Well, I have done it and there’s no more movies related to this franchise that I would look at in the future.
Happy Halloween everybody… I gonna go dressed as an Anonymous member or something.
