Robert Pattinson stars as Edward Cullen, the vampire which Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) falls in love with. They have an instant intense attraction which is portrayed well by Stewart and Pattinson.
Cullen trys to avoid Bella as he doesn't entirely trust himself not to see her as food. The movie tells the enthralling tale of their romance with its complications. Edward's love for Bella is so deep that he goes to great lengths to protect her from vampire James, played by the OC's Cam Gigandet.
The fight-seen towards the end of the movie is intense, dramatic and convincable. This is partly down to the hatred that Gigandet portrays merely by the intensity of his eyes, the shattered mirrors and sucking of Bella's blood.
The onscreen chemistry between Stewart and Pattinson not only feels believable, it feels real. With rumours of an off screen romance being fuelled by the pair being pictured at a restaurant together the night of the mtv awards.
This movie is a must see. The romance between Cullen and Stewart is unique. Many girls and women watching it simply because of the beauty of Robert Pattinson. Either way, it's the dvd of 2009 and will leave you hungry for the next installment, New Moon.
