Reviews are still rolling in for Breaking Dawn Part 2 and a recent one touts it as the best written of all the Twilight screen plays. After two big weekends at the box office, might the excellent writing help it hold its own for yet another big weekend haul?
According to a report from The Huffington Post, there’s really only so much critics can say about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. This film saw the introduction of the Volturi and witnessed Bella Swan try out her new other worldly powers. It seems the writing in this last installment of The Twilight Saga is the high point, and it’s what at least one stellar critic is concentrating on when giving a positive review.
“The writing in Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 seems to be the best yet. I found myself laughing out loud. The story line is more witty, interesting, cleverly done and the action scenes are completely unexpected,” Huffington Post critic Ambre Anderson says.
Definitely not negating some other high points of the film, Anderson lauds not only Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen as well.
“Even the actors gave better performances,” she says. “The highlight performances for me were from the beautiful Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swan. Not only did she give a believable performance as an incredibly strong vampire in such a tiny frame, but she made it funny and fascinating to watch. Also giving an always reputable performance was Michael Sheen, who plays Aro, one of the three leaders of the Volturi. There’s something about his malicious depiction that is so grimy, yet you’ll love to loath him! Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward, was funnier than I ever remember him being. Taylor Lautner, whose character is Jacob, gives another vigorous performance and the other wicked actor that amplifies inhumanity is Dakota Fanning.”
A very interesting point Ambre Anderson brings to light is a conversation that should take place between tweens who plan to see the film and their parents. This is enlightening on a number of levels and might even prompt parents of children who haven’t yet seen the film to go along to the theater, too.
“Regarding the topic of appropriateness for young impressionable teens, this film warrants at the least a conversation to your youngsters on issues like intense sexual content, violent murder and teen defiance,” she explains.
You can read Ambre Anderson’s critique of Breaking Dawn Part 2 in its entirety by clicking on The Huffington Post link above. Her review is one of the more comprehensive thus far and captures some facets of the film that haven’t really been highlighted well.
Do you agree with Anderson that this Breaking Dawn featured the best writing of all The Twilight Saga films? And are you impressed by her insight and thought-provoking suggestions to parents about pre-viewing conversations about the appropriateness of certain behaviors within the film? One would think parents will see this as a welcome opportunity and thank the critic for her idea.
