Like many women, I was stunned to find myself so overall intrigued w/ these characters & their story. The promise of love conquering all – It’s the alternate R & J ending we really want in a love story.
My husband & I spent the entire day & night watching The Twilight Saga marathon. (No, I didn’t drag him to it; he’s a bigger fan than I am.) Even after spending all day there, I was gratified w/ the final movie. My emotions even got the better of me towards the end as I shouted an expletive or two, surprising myself more than anyone else. (Nice twist.)
As usual, the score was beautiful. Carter Burwell is the reason why I took interest in the 1st movie. The emotional ebb & flow of his music draws us into their world.
Even though a story like this isn’t for everyone, it appeals to enough people to make it worthwhile to pursue. As for fiction in general, the only real boundaries are that of one’s imagination. Personally, I don’t mind having my stretched once in a while.

This one was so very cool. Very moving, action-filled, and just perfect for the last portion of the saga. The only ciriticism I have is that the CG baby looked CG. They should have used a real baby. I'm sure there are three sisters of progressive ages that look so much alike that they could be mistaken for each other except for older than the one before. Other than that, I would very good in its own right and I loved the nostalgia at the end. Brought tears to my eyes!

For all Twilight fans, the marathon was awesome so GO if you have a chance! I loved watching it from the first movie through to the end. The ending was amazing and I was trying to remember the ending of the book. This was my first marathon so I was nervous and didn't know if I could make it that long. I would do it again! You can see the growth of the actors. Go see it, it is definitely worth it.

I loved how it just seemed like you were in the "never-ending" book. Watching them all back to back like that was great. You get breaks in between the movies, so that helped. Movie was awesome, completely unexpected twists.

It was so worth spending the entire day at the movies to see the whole story unfold. I'm not a book fan...I'm a movie fan, so I had no idea what was coming. Breaking Dawn Part II was an excellent conclusion to the saga. In fact, I'm going to see it again!
