Watched Breaking Dawn last night* and enjoyed the final chapter of the Twilight series by Stefanie Meyer.
I have read the whole Twilight series a few years ago but as I was watching the movie and tried to foresee what would happen next, I found myself unable to recall much of the story. Well, I suppose this makes the movie even more enjoyable. Thing is, I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint any revisions the movie makers did to the story, if ever there were.
It is the much awaited ending to the Twilight Saga and un-arguably, all moviegoers I was with that night enjoyed it, relishing the fight scenes especially the sequences where the Volturi guys get ass-whacked, with their heads getting jerked off and hurled away from their bodies. It’s scenes like these when we all hooted and clapped in glee. And oohhed in dismay when the same thing happens to our beloved clan folks, e.g. to Carlisle.
And then, of course, we laughed again at ourselves after we realized that those scenes were actually just the ones which Alice allowed Aro to download from her mind. Scenes that will happen if Aro pursues his plan to eradicate this wayward herd.
The disappointment of the two war-shocked guys who were rearing for a battle was amusing.
But of course, the battle scenes were really cool although I could have injected some better effects on it had I been it’s battle choreographer.
Is this really the end of the Twilight saga? I kind of imagined that another series would probably be spinned off about Renesmee and how she’d mature. But the arrival of the last witness near the end of the movie, that latin(?) guy who was supposed to be the first half-human, half-vampire born of a human-vampire couple sort of spoiled the possibility. But with Stefanie Meyer, imaginative as she is, you could never tell.
If you’re a Twilight fan, and haven’t seen this last episode yet, well…get the hell out of that chair and go watch the movie, now!
*Actually, the other night.
