The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012)

The epic finale that will live forever.

It's that time of the year again...
Obviously I mean The Twilight Saga time at this point, not Christmas time, and I'm a sucker for this particular notorious book and film series. I can't remember what happened in 2008 when Twilight came to light because I didn't write my blog then but since 2009 I and my fiancé have seen New Moon (2009), Eclipse (2010), Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011) and Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012) together in theatre. It has been such a lovely tradition for us and now it's completely over, no more Twilight books and films. This little fact made me quite emotional for a moment, to be honest but naturally I managed to stay strong in the cinema, surrounded by hundreds of strangers. But I know at least my fiancé can breathe easier now, no more Edward and Bella, no more almost 2 hours long mandatory cinema visits. That burden has finally vanished!

Anyhow, a little general information about Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ahead of my opinions and thoughts.
Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is 2012 romantic fantasy film directed by Bill Condon (who is also the talented director of Breaking Dawn - Part 1) and it's based on the novel Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer.


Bella (Kristen Stewart) has given birth to a special baby girl she names Renesmee after her mother Renée and Edward's adopted mother Esme (Elizabeth Reaser). Jacob (Taylor Lautner) bonds with Renesmee and helps the recent parents keep their daughter safe from his former wolf pack. But Renesmee is growing at fearfully accelerated rate. And when the Volturi hear about the child then they assume the Cullens have broken vampire laws and have created a newborn by turning a human child into a vampire.

Alice (Ashley Greene) has a vision showing her that the Volturi are coming to kill them all and no explanation will be good enough for them. The Cullens summon their vampire friends from all around the wide world to get to know Renesmee so they can prove she's actually a human/vampire hybrid. But as soon as Alice and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) suddenly disappear, the Cullens fear the worst and try to prepare themselves for an all-out war.


So, for me it was all about the tiny details and grand visual effects this time, from the very beginning until the end. And since it was the final portion of the Twilight Saga then I'm not going to remarkably complain about the fact how the beginning seemed to be slightly slow. It simply didn't matter and the film grew more interesting, intriguing and pleasing to the eye with every minute half term! For example the cottage that Alice gifted to Bella and Edward (Robert Pattinson) was wonderful and the dressing-room inside that cottage was highly delightful. Too bad Bella didn't appreciate all those beautiful pieces inside that wardrobe and practically all the time picked a rather boring pair of jeans.

But now about the part that was my utmost favourite.
It was the finale - Alice's tragic vision. I had read the book which is why I supposedly knew everything but then I truly wondered what the hell was going on? For once I even believed they had used a punch line! Anyway, it was super intense - clearly the perfect closing for the Twilight Saga. And I'll be missing you sincerely, dear Twilight Saga. 10/10

  2. oo, selles garderoobitaolises asjanduses uudistaks küll ringi jaa jaa! aga mnjah, Twilight mind endasse ei haaranud kahjuks või õnneks. ei kumbagi ilmselt. aga ma pole muidugi ka just parim näide sedasorti massikultuuri tarbijast. aga - ma ei teadnudki, et Ashley Greene Twilightis mängib - mul õnnestus teda juhuslikult NY's silmata, kuigi ma temast rohkemat siiani vist ei teadnudki kui aint seda, et ta Reeve Carneyga sebib või sebis või midagi... vot kui paljuütlev kommentaar nüüd tuli :D

    1. The Hunger Games ja The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on vist ka päris popid olnud, aga nendega pole ma üldse kursis. ei ole ühtegi filmi näinud ega ka ainsatki raamatut lugenud. minu jaoks oleks rohkem kui üks lemmik ilmselt liiast :P (Fifty Shades of Grey triloogia ootab niigi oma järge..)
      aga kuna mul polnud õrna aimugi sellest, kes on Reeve Carney, tegin natuke guugeldamistööd, kuid Wikipedia neid kahte paari polnud pannud igatahes, nii-et võta sa kinni siis, kus see "suur tõde" tegelikult on :D ja Ashley Greene'i ma kindlasti tänaval ära ei tunneks, sest olengi teda ainult Twilighti Alice'ina näinud ja nagu Wikipedia jälle informeeris, on ta reaalselt vägagi erinev :D

    2. sellisel juhul ma ei tea, mis googlet sa kasutad, sest minu google paneb nad ikka kokku :D või õigupoolest ütleb, et nüüdseks on nad lahku läinud.
      mul oli just niipidi, et Greenest midagi ei teadnud, aga nägin teda vist esimest korda ühes tänavastiiliblogis koos Carneyga ja Carney oli mulle tuttv oma bändi kaudu ja Broadway etendusest, mida ma vaatama pidin minema (kus ma Greene silmasingi, tuli vist peiksi vaatama :))

    3. no ma kasutasin Wikipediat tegelikult, sest ei viitsinud väga süveneda. ja pealegi on Wikipedias ka tavaliselt kirjas, kes kellega käib/käis :D ju siis pole nad piisavalt "suured" staarid Wikipedia jaoks :P

    4. no vot, selle peale ma ei tuleks, et wikipediat klatšiuudiste jaoks kasutada :D lihtsalt kuna sealpool kipub (või paistab vähemalt) see nii olema, et ei jõuakski nagu väga järge pidada, kes kellega käib ja siis samuti, et kes jõuab neid peikse-prutasid kuskile wikisse üles järjestada, kui neid nii palju on ja aru ei saa, kes kui tõsine on ja no olgem ausad, miks peakski kõiki flinge sinna toppima. wiki võiks jääda olulisema info kohaks, kuigi jah, see ei kannata enam kohati üldse kriitikat, kui asjas kaugemale minna.

  7. I prefer to not read this post I don't want any details about the movie until I get to see it by myself haha.

  8. I know the feeling you're talking about, it's always nice to have that movie series that you love and follow from the first, it's always bittersweet when the last movie comes around. (And can I say that I really, really want the closet there? That is gorgeous!)

  9. I have to watch it!!! Oh gosh, I think I might have just read a spoiler haha. Anyways, great review. I am quite sad too that the Twilight movies are officially done. At least, there's still The Hunger Games. ;D

    P.S. Thanks for checking out my MMP!

    Lots of love, B

  16. I've never seen the twilight films really apart from watching a bad copy only of the first one! The bad quality probably ruined the experience for me but I know a lot of people enjoy them, my boyfriend's mum used to enjoy the series :). xx

    Almost Delightful

  17. I have to admit, I've never seen any of the Twilight films, but some of the images you chose, like the family Christmas scene, are not exactly what I was expecting from the series :) I'm sure one cold winter afternoon I'll get bored and watch them all, and when I do, I'll be back to tell you all about it :)
    xox,

  20. I was totally throw off by her vision and gasped when everything started happening! Overall I didn't care for this last movie, but I am certainly going to miss this series. It was fun while it lasted!

  21. IT WAS SO GOOD!!! Definitely good to know we're both fans of this story! :)

  23. i loved reading your review on this! I hate to say it...but...I wasn't crazy over 4 or 5. I just didn't like the director! 1 was definitely my favorite and 2 was a close 2nd. I felt like in 4 & 5, the director made Edward & Bella somehow different. He made their personalities different...and I didn't like that...I'm really a tough critic because I was obsessed!

  31. i'll admit i've only seen the first one and wasn't into it at all but i think it would've been completely different if i had read the books. everyone who read them seems to love the movies. maybe i'll give it a read now that the hype is over. haha, i'm so behind!
