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.

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!!

I was hoping the movie be exactly the way I read it. Although it took awhile to see the second half it was well worth the wait. I could watch it again and again. Can't wait for the DVD so I can watch both over and over.

I loved the story content. It definately followed the book. Loved the hunt scenes. Amazed at how the producers showed the growth spurts of the youngest Cullen clan. How all the Cullens pulled together to help the cause. The cottage that was bulilt for Bella and Edward....So much detail! The ending-AMAZING!
