The movie started out kind of slow, with too much deviation from the book. It was a good half hour before it got interesting... But then WOW!! is all I can say. Surprises, twists from the book and action scenes that made us cry! Comic scenes that were hysterical. And, the audience got so into the story it was like you were in it! So glad my first impression was wrong this time. The only sad part is knowing what will come on the DVD! I feel bad for those who missed the opening night showings because they will probably hear more than they should before seeing it for themselves. Hurry and go!!!!! I do wonder why the midnight release was pushed back to 10:00? Kind of took some of the fun of the whole premier thing away.

I was looking forward to the final movie, because Part 1 was an EPIC movie. I have not read the books. This movie was not 'epic.' It was a good movie and was great on the big screen. It put you through a lot of different emotions. AND it definitely gave an ending that you could agree with and live with. You must watch it to find any closure in this series. I have to add, this was the cheesiest movie in the series, unfortunately due to CGI and some campy acting.

This movie was excellent! Those who have read the book may worry a bit near the end but make sure to keep watching because it doesn't end like you think it might! The movie twist that they added made it an excellent and extremely exciting film to watch! Best movie out of the Twilight Saga by far! I most definitely recommend this to anyone who is a Twilight fan and even those who aren't because there is something for everyone in this movie!

It truly has been a really long time since i have had a jump in my seat, "oh ****" out loud moment while watching a movie. this one has it a few times. I am truly impressed!!
it is a fitting ending to a really good 'saga' of this type. I am sure Stephanie applauded out loud when she saw the story boards and read the script. She probably said this will get them!!
and I am patiently waiting for the sequels which will tell us how Renessmae faired into her adult life...come Steph...don't make us wait too long!!

Having read all four books definitely gives a person an emotional attachment to the movies -- most especially, to this final chapter. I'm going to be honest, I went in with certain expectations, I thought I knew what was to come about, turns out I didn't. All my expectations? gone. I am still a bit stunned. Breaking Dawn Part 2 was nothing short of phenomenal. There are so many twists and turns, that even familiar readers will latch on to their seats and gasp with surprise. Bill Condon, truly went out with a bang on this final movie. Twilight fans will be impressed -- not to mention, a bit heartbroken, since, after all, this brings an end to the Twilight-phenomenon. My advice? prepare yourself to feel every emotion possible. I'm definitely watching this 5 more times.
