Movie: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Cast: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner

The fourth instalment in the Twilight Saga is the most anticipated film in recent times. “Breaking Dawn”, directed by Bill Condon, stars Kristen Stewart as the protagonist Bella Swan, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, and Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black.

The plot is all about Bella getting married to her vampire-boyfriend Edward Cullen at last and the problems that she faces consequently. Does the movie live up to the hype? You bet it does.

Perfect casting

The last three movies in the series have had a perfect cast, and the same continues with Breaking Dawn. The actors fit the role to a ‘T'! Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen is especially charming. But the best performance is from the drool-worthy Taylor Lautner, as Jake who steals the show.

The screenplay, editing and cinematography are all brilliant. The scenic locales, especially Isle Esme, is a visual treat. Kristen and Rob's off screen courtship works well on-screen too!

The background music is par excellence. So is the CGI. The werewolves' clash with the vampires is a fan's delight. But one is disappointed by the minimum verbal tiffs between Rosalie and Jacob. We expected more!

The most anticipated wedding scene is lovable, with its exquisite floral arrangement and marvellous setting. The wedding cake looks delicious! But one wonders why Bella looks mediocre as the bride, as opposed to Edward, who is at his gorgeous best. The climax is perhaps the best part, where you witness Bella's transformation.

Bottomline: Overall, the movie has delivered the goods better than the previous films in the series. It goes without saying that “Breaking Dawn” is a must watch for all Twihards! Don't miss it!
