Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison, Taylor Lautner, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen
The Twilight saga continues into its second installment, New Moon. Bella Swan (Stewart) is madly in love with the vampire Edward Cullan (Pattison) and she realises that Edward will remain the way he is for all his life. However, Bella being a mortal will age and eventually die. Bella and Edward both realise this shortfall in their relationship and Edward decides to move out of Bella's life before things can get worse. Heart-broken, Bella starts confiding in Jacob (Lautner) who secretly loves her but never confessed it. Bella is torn if she should love Jacob back or crave for Edward the rest of her life. The movie is a great improvement when it comes to the plot from the previous movie. The romance is nothing great and whatever little fights scenes exist have been toned down to fit better in the movie, which sadly doesn't have the expected impact. Performance are nothing to talk about and the movie gets slow and boring on multiple occasions. Might appeal to the romantic teenage girl but definitely not to anyone else. Seriously, what is all the hype on Robert Pattison and Taylor Lautner all about?
Thumbs up: Improvement from the previous movie
Thumbs down: Slow and boring
