Twilight. Movie about romance and action, and more importantly based on the hit series of Twilight that include Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn written by Stephenie Meyer. It narrates the story of a family of vampires that while attempting to pass unnoticed simply stand out. It isn't until Isabella Swan, Chief Swan's daughter, comes around to live with her father in the small town of Forks for she felt that her mother really needed time with her new husband.
The movie starts out with the preview of the superficial that's living among them. Then appears the struggle of Bella as she transends from one life to another, not wanting it. She forces herself to welcome this new town, new people and her dad's attempt of making her feel welcomed. In the very begining we see a couple of new characters that actually impact Bella's life. For example we have Jacob and his grandfather that first appear when Bella gets her new yet old car that Chief Swan buys for her from Billy (Jacob's grandfather). Then comes the first day of school where, after meeting a couple of people, she meets the most important of them all. Edward Cullen. Edward Cullen and his family (Emmet, Jasper, Alice and Rosalie) are all studying in the same school but have isolated themselves from the rest of the student body. While Bella starts to wonder about him little did she now at the time that he was a vampire that tried to live life as normal as he could with the rest of his family including Carlisle and Esme.
After a while of avoiding Bella and not bothering to show up to school just because the smell of her blood is too enticing for him, after a couple of misunderstatements, he decides to try it with her and as they embarc on something new for the both of them they start to feel strong for each other. Edward does warn her about him being dangerous but she ignores it. And even when he shows her his special talents (mind reading, strenght, speed and glow) she still wants him to be part of her life. Edward still fears for her life not only because dangers are entitled to happen with him being a vampire and having this incredible thirst for her but also because after an incident while spending time with his family, some visitors appeared and made a subgestive threat to Bella's life. After this, the movie turns around and it becomes more of a thrill.
Edward and his family start to run around trying to protect her and her family from James. After a lot of attempts of loosing him he always got back after them and just when they thought she was safe for a while until he called and made her meet him in a ballet studio. Right then and there she had to make a choice and be resposible for it but when she meets him she unreavels his true desires and wants. While torturing Bella, Edward makes his appearance but in the end she gets really hurt and turns out that he has to make a choice and be responsible for it.
Not going to give the end up but you can totally tell that not only that a sequel is coming but that the story is going to be long and passionate. You'll grow addict to it and you'll see yourself looking forward to them and buying the books. Even if you don't like to read you'll find the books even more enticing than the movie...
"One more small note, which is very important for the future of our economy: Several characters in this film have George Michael’s gravity-defying bird’s-nest hair from the Wham “Make It Big” sessions, which looks only slightly less ridiculous now than it did in 1984. Invest any spare cash you have in companies that deal in hair gel. I have a feeling this film is going to be huge." Peter Hartlaub
"Operas have arias; “Twilight” has stares. Nothing in Melissa Rosenberg’s fairly intelligent screenplay suggests the need for this much ornate direction. Nor should her two actors, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, be condemned to performances that will have girls’ dates screaming with laughter. When left to their own devices, these are sensitive young actors who more than deliver the complexities of two people in love who must surmount formidable barriers." Kirk Honeycutt
"So Twilight isn't a masterpiece — no matter. It rekindles the warmth of great Hollywood romances, where foreplay was the climax and a kiss was never just a kiss.” —Richard Corliss
"On the whole, Twilight works as both love story and vampire story, thanks mainly to the performances of its principals. Pattinson and Stewart want to convince you that their characters are an undead freak and the girl who, against all logic, loves him. Yet they do it not by selling you on what makes Edward and Bella so different, but by finding their flesh-and-blood humanity.” —Michael O’Sullivan
"For girls, the intense, ego-stroking appeal of Meyer’s novel was the way that Bella becomes this undead ..." Owen Gleiberman
