Conclusions

This film is a lot better than the previous two, the characters are starting to develop a little bit, although it’s all still way over-the-top dramatic. I like the love triangle going on, developing more and more, although the relationships are all intensely unhealthy and the boys are a little bit too happy to force themselves around.

Still massively loving the dad, and Anna Kendrick’s speech was fab. Not so happy about the werewolves, I get that they are hot and wolfy but they could just put a t-shirt on occasionally.

And Bella is still grinding my gears at every opportunity. “I’ve never felt normal.” WHO HAS? Doesn’t mean you have to become a vampire.

Rating: 4/5.
