The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 DVD Review

By Tribute on March 2, 2013 | 7 Comments

Although the Twilight Saga came to an end in theaters last year, we can look forward to owning it on Blu-Ray/DVD and completing the full set. The lead actors—including Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner—have reprised their roles for one last adventure.

The familiar melody starts the movie in a bittersweet way. Sad to see it end, but equally as exciting to see the second part of the final book come to life as Bella is finally turned into a vampire and meets her newborn baby—half human, half vampire—whom Jacob has already imprinted on. In an effort to convince the Volturi that Bella and Edward’s daughter Renesmee is in fact not fully immortal, they gather their vampire friends. Then, in an epic finale—extremely altered from the novel version of Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer—a grand battle takes place in the well-known field.

The unforgettable scenery and songs that were reminiscent to those of the previous movies were perfectly chosen to bring out the best parts of the story. In a beautiful end to a blockbuster series, the actors and actresses portrayed our favorite cold-blooded vampires and warm-hearted wolves to the greatest of their abilities, leaving us wanting more from the star-studded cast and lovable tale.

Twilight first came to theaters in 2008 and now that the saga is over, Twihards can rest assured (or stay up all night like the vampires) that the four-year adventure was well worth the year-long waits in between each movie.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Blu-ray gives an inside look (not quite as great as Edward’s mind-reading or Alice’s future-telling, but still extremely interesting) into the making of Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2, as the movies were filmed back to back.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2  is available today on DVD (March 2). Other new releases this week include Chasing Mavericks and All That You Possess. ~Renita Naraine

    Is it just me or was that the worst movie of 2012??? So slow and boring, the kids face was so obviously computerized, the heads all ‘popped’ off so easily and in the end nothing actually happened. Oh David Boreanaz, the only heroic vampire that I cheer for, please ‘pop’ off Edwards head.

    Don’t forget Blade. He would make quick work of these Twilight fools.

    To Fyon and Nobody Important. You are entitled to have your opinion I respect that. However, I read the books even though I’m not a fan of vampire stuff to see what all the fuss was about. I must confess I couldn’t put the books down until I read all four within a few days. I love the story. You don’t see dedication of family and friends and of course Bella’s devotion (too bad Kristen wasn’t like that in real life)and loyalty towards Edward too much today, and okay I thought the movies stayed true to the books as much as possible and I think they were great. It’s too bad they were given bad reviews and awards. The box office does say something though,does it not?

    BM: the box office does say something… The highest grossing Twilight movie grossed less than the lowest grossing Harry Potter movie. No Twi-movie was the highest grossing move of it’s release year. Says something, right?

  5. the original N.I. /Nobody Important/ • March 3, 2013 @ 11:02 PM

    @BM. The Box-Office indicates that emotionally undeveloped tweens have considerable disposable incomes. It’s most certainly NOT indicative of a quality film, and most-certainly not indicative of vampire folklore.
