Movie – Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn part 1

There is one believable moment in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1. It is a moment that reminds us that Kristen Stewart is so much more than the one-dimensional, less-than-interesting, lightning rod for monster love that is her character, Bella Swan
That believable moment is during the wedding scene, when Bella begins her walk down the aisle. Anyone can get cold feet, but this young woman is about to commit to a permanent case of cold feet by marrying Edward, her vampire lover, then becoming just like him … undead! Director Bill Condon’s camera catches terror in her eyes; 100 pages of subtext in an instant. It is the most truthful moment of “The Twilight Saga” series thus far.
Then, there’s the rest of the movie.
Awful. And practically unwatchable. The good news, such as it is, is that some scenes are so bad, they’re funny.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is in trouble from the start. We see Bella’s mother receive an invitation to her daughter’s wedding. She seems surprised. Why? Did we miss something? Is it explained in the book why she doesn’t seem to know she’ll be getting an invitation to her daughter’s wedding? If so, why isn’t it explained in the movie?

Oh, I get it — it’s the mythology of Edward, the quiet, sensitive, understanding monster who’s confident enough to allow his new wife to hang out with a guy who desperately loves her, and to whom she in turn is attracted. This scene alone drives a stake through the heart of the movie. We cant wait to see part 2.
Thanks for reading,
