I have to be honest: I did not fall asleep during the final, concluding chapter of The Twilight Saga. But then, I was already busy writing this. This is not an ‘epic’ movie, but I liked it because it made me laugh. It’s so funny how a movie like this has become the number 1 of many teenagers and even somewhat older women across the globe. There are so many elements I’d like to talk about (actually each second there was something interesting going on), but let’s (try to) look at it from a more balanced perspective, shall we?
A phenomenon in 2008, The Twilight Saga soon became your ultimate destiny to dream away. Whether you liked Lautner’s six-pack abs, or Robert Pattinson’s romantic moments or even Kristen Stewart’s inability to express herself: this Saga had it all. Except…this final part.
Breaking Dawn Part 2 could be considered as the least romantic part in the entire saga. Edward and Bella’s semi-vampire child, Renesmee, grows up rapidly but the Volturi, the first vampires ever, see it as not-done. The child must die. So: it’s time for some war. The Cullens can’t allow this, obviously. They start recruiting vampire families willing to save the child. Some of Jacob’s pack even joins. It is one happy family.
On the other hand, romance is not what makes Part 2 so much better than earlier movies in the Saga. It’s all about the villain of the story. Unlike the previous parts, the producers have only tried to focus on the clear threat the Volturi pose. The confrontation between the Cullens and the Volturi has been portrayed exceptionally well. Comparing it to the Cullens versus baby vamps confrontation in the previous movie, this is a godly piece of art. Legendary even.
That makes me happy. To see how the Saga has developed over the years. And though this final part isn’t the best movie ever (it has too many flaws to be called such — especially the terrible ending), it contains the necessary elements to be labelled ‘good after all (these years)’.
