This movie is bad, and you should feel bad.
The characters are all weak, hardly knowing why they are doing what they're doing, moving forward only because Stephanie Meyer wants them to move this sad excuse for a plot forward. In the 7th Harry Potter film, the book was split up into two films because enough happens at the beginning and at the end of the book that it actually warranted two films. In Breaking Dawn, nothing happens in the second part. Nothing.
The entire film could have been condensed down into a 20 minute scene and tacked on to the first film, where the vampire council is pissed about the vampire baby, there's some arguing, and then they realize it's alright, and then they go away. Done. No need to take your money again, and waste your time. Again.
Due to the lack of an actual narrative, plot, arc, or anything that makes a story a story, they threw in a fight scene at the end where everyone dies. Sweet. But just when you think something might have happened in this film, OOPS! All just a dream. For real.
