The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 opened in United States theaters earlier this evening, and now the film series has come to a close.

Now it’s time to discuss with fellow Twihards!

Spoiler warning: Do not proceed unless you’ve seen the film!

We’re eager to hear your thoughts on the final film in the Saga. In our review, we said it “caters to the fans and delivers. You get shirtless Jacob, you get plenty of intimacy between Edward and Bella, and you also get some fun scenes with the Cullens and Charlie. We believe that Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is the best of the series and will leave the audience holding back tears until the very last scene.”

“The memories of this saga will indeed live on forever because Condon, Rosenberg, and Meyer worked up a great multi-part ending,” we concluded.

One of the questions we’re most eager to ask you: What did you think of the flash forward scene where Alice shows Aro what will happen if he decides to fight? Several characters in the scene are shockingly killed off, and we certainly believed each of those deaths was actually happening until director Bill Condon brought us back to reality.

IF all those characters had actually died, would you have been disappointed? Or would you have thought that it was acceptable given it’s how Alice actually saw the battle happening, thus being canon? We’ve yet to be able to ask Stephenie Meyer, but we’re wondering how exactly the crew decided which characters to kill off in Alice’s vision.

Here are some other questions we want you to answer…

- Did you think the ending overall was a great way to send off the Saga?
- What did you think of Renesmee and actress Mackenzie Foy?
- Were you as charmed as we were when Jacob stripped in front of Charlie?
- How wicked was Michael Sheen’s performance as Aro?
- Did you cry?

Hypable feature: As of this weekend, Bella, Edward, and Jacob’s stories will come to a close. See how far they’ve come from the first movie with our graphics detailing their journey!

    It’s only for the fans of the series. As for the normal moviegoers like me, it still not that good. Sorry.

  • http://twitter.com/chelscantil Chelsea Cantil

    I really liked it! I agree that it was the best of the bunch and had a clever ending

    • IGN

      Best. Movie. Ever. 10 out of 10!

  • Ra

    It is only for the fans of the series. As for the normal moviegoers like myself, it still not good. Sorry

    I thought it was alright, actually got a bit bored during the final fight scene because I realized it was just a vision. Still, better than the last 3 movies, and much better than part 1 I thought.

    • HarryScar

      First of all. It’s 8 movies. Not 4. Second of all, the epilogue scene was emotional and Harry Potter, naming is kid as Albus Severus Potter was amazing. 10 out of 10!

      • http://www.facebook.com/cmoorepats Cameron Moore

        Being that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, i realize all of this. Also, seeing as this was a post about the Twilight Saga and not HP, I feel my comment is still relevant…

  • Ashley

    I was totally shocked when they killed carlisle and jasper and then I thought Edward was going to dies tooo! I was on the verge of tears!

    • Everyteenager

      I know, right?

    • Hpbrocster

      I cant remember. Did they kill Jasper too?

      • Megan

        Sadly, yes they did.

        • lunalovegood

          They died in honor :(

          • Alex

            They didn’t die. They would’ve died if they would’ve had a fight which that was Alice showing Aro the future and he realized they would’ve lost but there was really no fight

    • Confused

      WAIT WHAT???? THEEY DIED?????

  • That guy…

    All I know is I laughed my ass off when Edward got demolished by Jacob!! Those twi-hards went BALLISTIC!

    • http://www.facebook.com/Liliana.Sa Liliana Sa

      What part was this?

      • lol

        “when Edward got demolished by Jacob”

        • http://www.facebook.com/Liliana.Sa Liliana Sa

          uh huh and when was this?…and don’t say “when edward got demolished by jacob”…..set the scene up cause i dont remember seeing that.

  • d3erudite

    I loved the film. I was impressed with everyone but particularly Mackenzie Foy and Kristen Stewart. Favorite coven vampires were benjamin, garret, and the romanians. To answer your question: I was laughing to death before jacob turned and I cried twice. Overall, more than satisfying conclusion to an amzing series and I will miss it greatly.

    • Yourlocalcinema

      You cried twice? Damn those onions. I told them “No one wants onions in a cinema” but they don’t listen to me… Damn… I’m so sorry… I tried….

      • http://www.facebook.com/thecoolguy4ever Ahmed Tarek Saad

        I’m a Twi-hard but LOL!

  • Dani

    this was by far the best film in the saga. the ending had me at the edge of my seat and almost screaming at the screen for what they did with that flash forward! i definitely had tears in my eyes at the end only because it really is the end. no more kstew, rpatz and taylor all together :(

    • EveryBF

      I was on the edge of my seat too. I wanted to run away from this film but my GF just kept me in there. The ritual is done though. So… Yeah…. Yeeeiii for me?

  • Jess

    Renesmee CGI is garbage. So bad. In fact, most of the CGI was just plain terrible. The battle should have been canon, then maybe the story would have been considered okay. But nope, happily ever after ending for everyone!

    Anyways, I never took the series seriously. I don’t see how anyone could, seeing as it’s about a girl giving up her family, friends, and humanity for a dead guy. It’s was okay, though, and definitely the least worst of them all.

    • Hanna

      honestly its about love. not a girl who leaves her family and friends. In fact edward is a vampire no he isnt dead he can feel things and has a heart. the story basically creates a fantasy world were a young girl falls in love with someone she shouldnt. many of us can relate to that. therefore meyers consistancy in the books and movies with the love action and suspene was excellent. If you didnt like it why are you even commenting?

      • stargazer

        Haven’t seen the movie, but I’m responding to your question, “If you didn’t like it why are you even commenting?”

        Jess is responding because at the top it says, “What did you think?” not “What did you think–only Twi-hards who loved the movie are allowed to respond.”

        Personally, I’ll probably never see the movie. I’ve just been reading up on it because I was wondering if they’d change the ending to include a battle (because the ending of the book, in my opinion, was much too tidy and convenient and…well…boring). To learn that they kind of had a battle, but it was really just a vision so that movie goers would be pleased and uber-fans wouldn’t become a raging mad mob is a worse copout than the book.

  • theaterboy1

    Breaking Dawn, Pt 2 was pretty much perfection, easily the best movie out of the whole saga in my opinion! It had it’s share of humor like the ones that came before it and definitely had such a beautiful ending. I’m not ashamed to say I left with tears rolling down my cheek. This movie surpassed all expectations! I would have been sad if it was real and not a vision because at that time I actually thought it WAS real and that those characters WERE killed. The whole audience actually gasped during the first major character’s vision death. And yes, the audience also hooped and hollered when Jacob started to strip. Mackenzie Foy was perfect as Renesmee, exactly how I pictured her. Michael Sheen was brilliant as Aro, I loved his performance!

    • Polppa

      10 out of 10!

  • http://twitter.com/bigcraig01 Craig S.

    There was too much too fast in my opinion… Bella becoming Super-Bella an having her stint… Then Alice and Jasper running off and then the introduction of too many characters with the main characters not getting much screen time… Part of me is glad that it picked up exactly where it left off from P1 but it felt awkward at the exact same time with regards to how I process most movies… I didn’t like the opening title sequence because it didn’t fit the franchise… I already knew the twist Alice ending so I was expecting that but I think they could’ve really went out with a bang and killed the Voltouri off entirely (for real) since this is most likely the last Twi-movie until the reboot if Steph ever allows it, of course… Melissa, Bill and Steph played it all way too safe… I think it honestly should’ve been 30 minutes longer with a bit more Charlie or even Renee so that their characters could’ve had longer send offs regardless of their presence in the books…

    I thought this was a perfect way to end this journey. I think adding in the battle as a vision was the perfect compromise to make mostly everyone happy. Eclipse will always be my favorite, but this was definitely the best film of them all. Bill Condon, I commend you.

    • guy

      And what a journey. It seemed like going to a painfull visit to the dentist.

  • MirrorWolf

    I honestly don’t know what to think. I think it would have been clever if the twist had actually happened instead of a vision but I also think that would have been terrible for fans. But since it did technically happen in the book in the form of Alice’s vision…I don’t know. I think I might have to see it again.

    Side note: I thought Michael Sheen did a terrific job as Aro.

  • http://twitter.com/hp_otaku Veronica

    I would have liked for the fight to be real. To be honest it was the outcome I was expecting in the book, and I was sad to see it wasn’t true.

    I really hated how they literally ended the film. The whole turning pages from the book, was a dumb idea in my opinion. Why recognize that it is a book in the end? It would have fit better for it to fade at them in the meadow, and then if they want throw another Bella voice over about them being together forever or something.

    I’m not a fan of what they did to these movies, but as I’ve read the books and seen the first few I felt I needed the closure of seeing the end of the films. So, I enjoyed laughing with my aunt about it all.

  • Sans Sparkle

    Does anyone besides myself miss the sparkles? All that questionable CGI spent on Renesmee, but no sparkle moment for Bella and Edward? Am alone in wondering about this?

    • Polppa

      Are you serious?

      • Sans Sparkle

        Pretty much. At the end of the movie Bella and Edward are sitting in their meadow in full on sunlight and… zip. I mean sure it was always a campy effect, but it was in every previous movie, why was it left out in this one? And at the beginning, when Bella’s hugging Edward, she lifts her hand to the sun and…nothing. Curious minds…

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/George-Elliott-Ellis/729850214 George Elliott Ellis

    I thought it was fantastic. Sure, we can complain about some of the details that made a victory by the Cullen coven likely (things like Bella’s ability to shield her entire side and Aro losing a good piece of his army when it’s made clear that there is no real threat) but I think the vision was a fantastic conceit. First of all, it is completely appropriate that Alice would show Aro his future. Second, the vampire deaths were completely reasonable, especially Jasper and Carlisle. That said, the movie doesn’t really relate why Bella and Edward fighting together were themselves virtually unbeatable and how, when you add just Alice to the mix, the trio could reek singlehanded havoc. In the book, of course, it was quickly known that the attack would center on Bella given her shielding ability. Once you take out the shield, Jane and her brother can quickly start reeking tons of havoc. That said, we didn’t get to see the amazon chic do her shit (where Aro’s boys are seeing random shit everywhere). But it was highly entertaining and a reasonable approximation of what might’ve been.

  • Josh Goodfellow

    Was anyone else dying when Aro saw Renesmee up close for the first time and laughed like a little school girl?? Ahahaha the whole theatre was busting up; I could not stop laughing. Lots of awesome little comedic moments in this movie.

    • Random

      I died when the film started to be honest.

      I laughed so hard I cried. xD

      my friend and i were the only 2 to laugh in our theater…we got sooo many dirty looks from the hardcore twilight moms hahaha

  • Padicatz

    We thought I was definitely the best yet. The twist ending got a very audible reaction in our cinema – a very loud gasp then a lot of murmuring. I myself was torn between actually walking out (SO glad I didn’t) and staying all the while mentally writing a letter of disgust to Stephenie Meyer (how COULD you let them do THAT!) When the twist was revealed again the cinema was quite noisy but with relief.
    Aro was deliciously evil, and that laugh was hilarious! Beats Voldemorts weird cackle in HP7.2!
    Jacob was his usual gorgeous self, and the scene with Charlie was brilliant.
    Renesmee was enchanting and beautiful.
    We thought it was a great ending to it all, although I did read Stephenie hasn’t finished with these characters yet. Personally I would love to see Midnight Sun brought to the cinema too.
    All in all definitely a 5* film, we were still hyped up over it 2 hours later!

    • Everysingleguyonearth

      “The twist ending got a very audible reaction in our cinema” – Yeah. In my cinema too: “FINALLY! THE FINISH IS UPON US ALL! IM OUT OF HERE! -> to see a good film now.”

      • lunalovegood

        The way they did Aro’s death was really good. They way that Alice came which no facial expression and fought him and then grabbed him and threw him to the wolve and then he bite him. It was epic.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542593969 Bethzaida Diaz

      Thar happend in my showing too. Jacob got standing ovations every single time he came out!!!
      Did not like renesme, until she was real.
      The Charlie-jacob scene priceless,
      That I did tought of Aro’s laugh was as idiotic as Voldemort’s laugh in HP7 pt. 2.
      Alice’s vision of Edward and Bella’s family liked what I saw, even when we wewre not supposed to see anything, just for the fact that Jacob was there and she isn’t supposed to see anyone who stands around the wolves…
      Didn’t like the time Jacob was training the new wolves that it wasn’t told from his point of view, even when that particular scene didn’t happen in the book.
      Did not like how much the family was enjoy Jacob and Bella’s fight.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lilliempeterson Lillie Marie Peterson

    I may need to see it again later (on pay-per-view or some other, more economical fashion), but I thought it was shockingly bad. The CGI was just plain painful. The more I think about it the more I like the flash forward, but I was completely taken by surprise and got really angry (like everyone else in the theater) both when the deaths occurred and when we were told it was all a “dream.” I think it was a brilliant move, however, since the book was lacking in a climactic moment. Though I still feel like giving the finger to the filmmakers for putting me through such turmoil.

    • TheCops

      “I may need to see it again later (on pay-per-view or some other, more economical fashion)” – Yeah yeah… Nowadays you call downloading, “pay-per-view”

        Haha truth. My parents have satellite so I’m just used to saying that.

    • 7Starrchasers

      I thought the exact same thing when I watched it the first time but I just watched it again a d really enjoyed it…. Maybe it’s cause I knew what to expect this time around!!

    • Martha Villasenor

      It wasn’t a “dream”. It was a vision of the outcome if Aro went ahead with a fight. I think it was good they threw this in because everyone who read the book was left wondering what would happen if they did fight the Volturi…who wouldn’t survive. I’m so glad it wasn’t real and I knew it couldn’t be if they killed Carlisle like that. There is no way Stephanie would have written that for the end of the movie franchise if she didn’t end her book that way.

  • Lori

    Was very disappointed in the Breaking Dawn 2. It strayed too far from the book, left way too may important things out.

    • Reviewer

      Yeah. The book was way diferent. First of all, had “words” and not pictures. So, that’s always different. I think they did a great job. Bad book, bad film. 10 out of 10!

  • Joel Cruz

    Thank god it is finally over!!!! No more sparkling Edward. Time to end the year with the real most anticipated film of the year THE HOBBIT!!!

    • Tomas

      The Hobbit will be good, but so much less good than BD Part 2. This is THE movie of the year, you obviously haven’t seen BD Part 2 or you wouldn’t be talking like this. The Hobbit can burn for all i care, Twilight is way better.

      • Mary

        wow lol you must be joking right…in what world in Twilight ever better than The Hobbit? the hobbit is a literary classic, the movie an extension of the LOTR, that was the only fantasy film to win an emmy….yeah, a movie about sparkling vampires tops it and a corny love story tops it…look i dont mind Twilight but compared to most other movies, its not as good as people like you want it to be….

            EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS COMMENT THREAD IS AMAZING

        • Gary65

          Whatever about which one is better, the Hobbit movies are a joke. Splitting it into 3 movies!?! Really? It’s a just a cash cow now.

          • Ra

            Academy award winning director Peter Jackson is the one in charge. He is just taking an artistic license when it comes to his movies. The Hobbit is going to be great that might even end up being nominated for best picture like the lord of the rings trilogy did. Twilight,on the other hand, is a pure shit. You made me say that.

          • Gary65

            Oh spare me. RotK is nearly twice the size of The Hobbit and he managed to fit that into 1 movie. Deathly Hallows is more than twice the size of the Hobbit and it fit into 2 just fine. Now all of a sudden, he needs 3 movies? The only reason it’s 3 movies is cos the studio wants to prolong this for as long as they physically can. Peter Jackson(whose Academic record is of no relevance to this discussion. There are plenty of stunning actors and directors who’ve never won an Oscar) had nothing to do with it. That’s like saying Bill Condon(also an Academy Award winner) is the reason Breaking Dawn was split in half.

            And, if you think Twilight’s shit, what are you doing here? Get a life.

          • Ra

            I have a life. I am a Nurse graduated from University of Florida. I said he wants it to be a 3 movie because of ” artistic license”. He is a very creative and risky director. What have you accomplished in your life so far? I saw the movie last night with my girlfriend,who is a fan of the series,but she is not blinded by it. She knows the movies sucks.

          • Gary65

            Yes cos graduating from college is indicative of having a life. The fact that you base having a life on what you’ve accomplished academically is just sad. And what does your girlfriend’s opinion have to do with anything? Plus, if you both hate the Twilight movies, why on Earth did you waste your time and money seeing the last one?

            Ever since HP did it, every single sucessful book-movie franchise has stretched its swan song out to 2 or more movies. Twilight, Hunger Games and now the Hobbit. Now, all of a sudden, it’s artistic direction? You do realize that there’s only gonna be 100 pages of plot in each movie, right? The studio approached Peter and asked him if he could stretch his material out to 3 films. Given his proclivity for over-shooting, he said yes and, boom, here we are. 3 films. It’s all for money. They’ve have made it 4 if they could.

          • Ra

            Lmao smh. So defensive. You get a life since you love your twilight. The worst thing about y’all hardcore twilight fans is that you are all blinded. You refuse to accept the truth that twilight is going to be remember by the people as one of the worst movie franchises of all time. Reality sucks but that is the reality. I’m not going to reply to any of what you have to say. Smh grow up dude. You are embarrassing yourself by being close minded and not accepting people’s opinions.

          • Alex

            Idiot, Twilight is not horrible and I read TLOTR (The Lord Of The Rings)’s books and they sucked so bad that it isn’t even funny at all. BTW You don’t have a life.

          • Gary65

            LOL If you re-read my comments to you, you’ll realize that I never expressed my opinion on the Twilight franchise as a whole and I never said The Hobbitt was bad. All I said was that it didn’t need to be 3 movies.

            Not accepting people’s opinions!?! Dude, you’re the one who started this dicussion by not accepting my opinion that the Hobbitt is a cash cow. The fact that they have to go and shoot extra material to make it 3 films is proof that it’s a cash cow. From what I’ve read, half the stuff in the 3rd movie won’t even be from the Hobbitt book. It’s gonna come from appendices JRR wrote so they can expand Middle Earth. It started out as 2 movies. It should only be 2 movies. The 3rd one is unnecessary.

          • Tomas

            The movie is great. Shut up

          • Ra

            *repost. I do have a life mister Gary. I am a Nurse who graduated from University of Florida. I saw this movie last night with my girlfriend,who is a fan of the series, but she is not blinded by it. She admits that the twilight movies suck. I went to see this movie with an open mind. You should do that too when ever you want to see a particular movie. Peter Jackson is just taking an artistic license which is good for Hollywood. He is a creative director who loves taking risks. It’s sad to see people are only looking at the movies as an entertainment but not as an art anymore. Sigh

  • Laura Jones

    I literally gasped when Aro lifted Carlisle’s head up- It didn’t even occur to me that it could’ve been Alice’s vision. I heard they’d changed the end and I thought they were just gonna kill off half the Cullens! When Carlisle, Jasper AND Seth had “died” I was raging, and i don’t even LIKE twilight that much.
    Bella letting Edward ‘hear’ her thought i.e. flash back over the entire series was nice for the fans to end the series with.

    I also liked the end credits- especially the book highlighting the first time we met Edward and Jacob.
    The flash forward to Renesmee was a little awkward though

  • MHutch

    I personally found the ending kinda epic. I thought it was really cool how Alice showed Aro how the fight would play out, that would have been a great addition to the book, and certainly a more satisfying ending. I may not be the biggest fan of Twilight, but I do find it entertaining, even though it isn’t a piece of great literature. But the film ending was awesome! Everyone in the theatre was so surprised, except for me, as I slowly started to work out that the fight wasn’t real, knowing there was a huge surprise. But still, I enjoyed it. Alice was awesome, and Aro, wow Michael Sheen was deliciously evil as Aro, that laughter was hilarious! All in all, my fave movie of the lot, with plenty of comedy to go around too.

  • Louis Ben-Joeseph

    I’ve been following the Twilgiht Saga since the first film and got really deep into the fandom a few weeks later (it was in early 2009). As a Twilight fan, Bill Condon and Rosenberg gave justice to the ending. It suited the tone of the plot well.

    As for the flash forward battle scene, after (SPOILER!!!!) Carlisle got killed off I doubted the scene and realized it might be Alice’s vision. But Esme made the exact reaction I had when I saw Carlisle’s head in Aro’s hand. So when Seth died, I wasn’t too worried, although Leah and Jacob’s reaction was painful. It was still an exhausting scene though. And seeing Aro decapitated, and Caius (who was decapitated from his jaw) was very satisfying. (THE MOVIE GOERS ALL SCREAMED).

    My heart feels like bursting now that the movie series has come to its end. It’s like Potter all over again. It’s like this is forcing us to grow up. The ending, especially the flippinf of the pages to the highlighting of the word “forever” as the last word of the book, broke my heart. A few rows behind kept saying her chest was painful now that the Saga is finished. And I do agree.

    • Guest

      Is Bella’s round up front kick in the trailer the kick that knocks off Aro’s head??? That would be so cool. I live in Israel under rocket fire so the local cinema is closed and I can’t see BD2 until I can travel north of Tel Aviv later this week.

    It’s an amazing movie. I was in shock with the twist!

    Aro was creepy, well done Michael Sheen!

    I LOVED DAKOTA FANNING!

    Kristen was an amazing Vampire!

    I did cry, several times.

    IMpossible to dislike this one

    I thought the CGI was great!

  • MHutch

    I also think Ashley Green did a really good job as Alice at the end there. And the credits at the end, how they acknowledged all the significant people throughout the whole series was really nice.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542593969 Bethzaida Diaz

      in this one she finally got the character!!!! now the CGI of renesme was the worst I’ve seen!!! Did not liked it!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/evalynda Evalynda Cayton

    I wish the graphics were better, but it’s been a good four years. It was a great ending and I’m sad to that it’s all over.

    • sadbuttrue

      And the gameplay aswell… Storyline was the biggest flaw though… “Can’t have everything” isn’t what they say? In this case, you don’t have anything… They have your money though… This is a videogame we are talking right?

  • Julia

    I swore out loud when they killed Carlisle and watched the rest of the Battle with my mouth wide open. I thought the way they added in the much needed action that was lacking in the book was fantastic.

    • hpatdh33

      I thought it was very clever too, but it only works as a one time viewing. If I see it again with the knowledge of the twist the climax will be boring.

  • ardana

    I really enjoyed Breaking Dawn pt. 2. There were so many funny moments, such as the arm wrestling, Charlie’s reaction to Jacob phasing and Jacob training the wolf cubs when the Romanians arrive and the chase where the little guys trip up Jacob. The battle was really good. It was hard to watch Carlisle and Jasper being destroyed and Seth dying was also hard to watch. I loved that Leah died while saving Esme. The complete destruction of the Volturi got cheers in the theater I was watching it in, especially when Tanya and Kate destroy Caius, and when Bella and Edward take out Aro. Personally I was even happier to watch Alice and Sam destroy Jane. My favorite non Cullen by far was Garrett. He was both a courageous fighter (daring Kate to shock him anyone) and the character with some of the funniest lines in the movie, especially when we first meet him while hunting, Emmett’s banter with him and how he first wanted to finish his meal. Loved Mackenzie Foy, too.

  • Corin Boswell

    Oh my word… I was at a loss for words the entire end of the movie. It was a good way to make an anticlimactic ending very climactic. The scene with Jacob and Charlie was awesome b/c you can’t help but love Billy Burke.

    Did anyone else catch what Marcus said right before he “died?” I think it would only make sense if you’d read the Illustrated Guide and knew his back story. It clicked immediately w/ me. I had a total fangirl moment when that happened (and I’m 32 so that’s sort of embarrassing to admit). And it was also obvious who in our theater had read the book b/c when the whole Carlisle thing happened there were only about a dozen of us that literally gasped and a few who said ,”what the hell is this?”
    I’m sure I will do my usual nit pick of details and book canon vs film after seeing it a 2nd or 3rd time but as of this moment it’s truly awesome and great in every way… except for thing w/ Remesmee’s face. I realize that was always going to be a hard concept to portray but some parts of it just felt weird.

    • ltm3452

      Yes the “Finally“ comment was a great touch.And the look of happiness on his face was just subtle enough to be cought

  • ltm3452

    Love Aros Laugh, had me in stitches, however completely started to tear up when Seth and Leah died.the battle had me on the edge of my seat cursing and screaming and hoping it was a vision but not knowing for sure.The longer it went the more I thought it was really happening

    • lunalovegood

      But it was so sad how Carlisle died. But I feel that if he would die he did it in an honorable way. Plus the seth and leah death made my cry. But I feel that Leah died in a (Leah way) that she could not live without seth and the last thing she could do it what she loved is killing Vampire Bloodsuckers.

  • alittletlc

    i thought i was going to have a heart attack. i’m glad they decided to not kill off everyone (like i thought they were doing). I was about ready to get up and storm out when the fight was going down.
    the baby CGI was awful. Just plain awful.
    But i did like Mackenzie… she was super cute!

  • Hpbrocster

    I went last night but everything was such a whirlwind. Can somebody provide a list of good and bad characters who died in Alice’s vision?

  • http://twitter.com/rayebangsal07 Raisa Bangsal

    it was amazing like REALLY AMAZING i nearly cried on the climax especially the last parts of the movie

  • http://twitter.com/ajabMPT Amy J. Baker

    CGI Renesmee infant creepy and unrealistic, Acting from principals same (poor), a few good laughs (some unintentional), beautiful home interiors/cinematography, Nice Jacob strip tease, Crazy chaotic fight scene which made audience wig out…

  • RussellTurner

    Did you think the ending overall was a great way to send off the Saga? Loved it! Ususally i am very critical of the Twilight Movies, but i thought it was perfect! Loved the battle and the surprise twist!
    - What did you think of Renesmee and actress Mackenzie Foy? Perfect casting and great acting!
    - Were you as charmed as we were when Jacob stripped in front of Charlie? YES! <3
    - How wicked was Michael Sheen’s performance as Aro? Brillaint. Perfect villian!
    - Did you cry? No i did not cry, but i did get chills!

  • http://twitter.com/JeanLoper Jean Loper

    I’m a huge Twilight fan and I was terribly disappointed. I did not like “The Twist” nor the CGI. I like it the best when they stick to the book. I’m so sad.

  • Megan

    Well, for starters the ending was amazing. it brought tears to my eyes when Bella sent Edward the thoughts and it went back all the way to the beginning. it truly showed how much all of us have grown with the series and made us realize wow, its over. It was also amazing how the fight scene was all just a vision. It had me in tears when seth died and then Edward almost died. It was suspensful and overall crazy. I’ve never been on the edge of my seat more. As for Renesmee, i think she did a good job. i was really hoping id see her and jacob go on a date or something but the little flash forward thing was cute. I was very happy when jacob started stripping in front of charlie. I thought it was a great little comedic part in it but was also very cute and much needed. Michael sheens performance was great. He was sinister, with a little bit of child in him. I did cry. I bawled my eyes out, at the end realizing my childhood is over and how much ive grown with this.The ending was very sentimental. I feel like bella and edward can finally be happy now. Although i would like to see just one more movie of them, and jacob and renesmee. but that might just ruin the effect of wandering what happened next and leaving the fans to create their own ending in their minds. As you can see i loved this movie. I will Forever Be A Twihard Fanatic<33

  • Elletnah

    I thought it ended nicely, it was very sweet to see a grown up Nessie. (BTW the way Bella reacted to Jacob imprinting was perfect.
    I thought Mackenzie was abosolutely adorable, with what little lines she had she made up for in presence that little one is one to keep an eye on.
    I couldnt stop laughing at Charlies reaction to Jacob stripping, everyone was giggling cause he was going shirtless, I was laughing hysterically at Charlies reaction
    Micheal Sheen as Aro was epic, I absolutely loved it. And that creepy little laugh when he heard Nessies heartbeat
    Did I cry?
    Is that a trick question? My favorite characters have always been Carlisle, Jasper and Alice. The moment they grabbed Alice all that was going through my head was please don’t kill her.
    Then Carlisle got his head ripped off and I think my heart skipped a beat, then Jasper. Seth’s death was the worst and Lea’s and Jacobs reaction didn’t help,
    Now for the righeous deaths, Alec got what he deserved and the whole theater was cheering
    Jane, same, though I am glad she got what was coming to her
    Aro, I don’t think I heard a theater cheer that loudly then when Bella ripped his head off.

    I LOVED all the new vamps, Allistair and the Transylvanians were the best, but they all are right up there. The little before battle talk about war made me smile, not to mention the little quip “The red coats are coming.”
    It was epic and it rounded out very nicely, I have never been one of the die hard fans but it felt like my heart was being ripped out and pummeled with that vision. Very glad Alice got to kick some major butt though

  • Madi

    That noise Aro made upon meeting Renesmee was haunting. Watching my favorite characters die killed me inside, and I’m obviously glad they didn’t actually die. Great film

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=646947665 Megan Slife

    Aro’s laugh was creepier than the Voldy hug..

    I didn’t think it was possible.

  • ZJCullen

    Is anyone forgetting the fact that ALICE CAN’T SEE THE WOLVES IN HER VISIONS?

    • Gary65

      I just assumed that Bella’s shield was blocking whatever it is that protects them from Alice. That and it would have looked stupid to just have these giant black sopts shooting about all over the screen.

      • Zack

        Nope. She can’t have visions with wolves period. Like it wouldn’t show up period–not of it.

        • Gary65

          I know that. But we’re just gonna have to work around that. Maybe her abilities developed, like Bella’s did so that she could expand her shield.

          • Zack

            Never thought of that…

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542593969 Bethzaida Diaz

            Please people a cat has only 4 legs, don’t look for a fifth. It was a huge mistake, because Bella wasn’t even aware that Alice was near them and with the Volturi gone, she didn’t need to be projectin the shield!!!! People DO make mistakes you know!!!

          • Emma

            I agree. Alice has never been able to not see before, so the wolves were a curve ball for her in New Moon/Eclipse. But I think she had the potential to force herself to see because her family was in danger, the same way Bella forced her self to expand her shield to protect her family. Either way it was a cool twist that I was desperately hoping I was right about or I would just freak out. I’m not the hugest Twilight fan but if the ending actually played out that way i would be beyond disappointed.

    • alittletlc

      in the books, this is true. but in the movies they can do as they wish…. thats just the way the world works.

    • http://www.facebook.com/emna.jegham Emna Jegham

      that’s what I said !!!

    • lunalovegood

      Alice thinks she cant see Renesmee and the shape-shifters or anything connected to them because she has no experience as being one of them; she sees vampires best because she is one, and can see humans “okay” because she used to be one.But what if cause she is around them more she is imune to them and now can see them plus here ability could have gotten stronger.

  • lorepottter

    I liked it, the best of the series, probably, the best movie ever, NO, the twist in the end had al the people screaming, Carslile and Jasper’s death, and then Seth died and Leah save Esme and Jacob killing that vampire in the end, was a hearbreak but the best escene for that part was Alice handing Jane to Sam, that was cool, and the CGI was terrible, that creepy Renesme baby it was like watching a horror film and the baby was satan’s chid, that was the only thing i actually didnt like at all.

  • http://twitter.com/christyvourcos Christina Vourcos

    I think the ending was a great way to send off the Saga. I forgot that Alice was planning to show Aro a possible future. So it kind of surprised me, but more so how the audience reacted. I think Mackenzie Foy did an amazing job as Renesmee. CGI did make baby Renesmee look a bit odd, but I think it worked because she was a mixture of human and vampire. As she grew, she looked more and more a mixture of Edward and Bella. I think they did a good job showing her all grown up in Alice’s vision. I couldn’t help but laugh during that seen where Jacob stripped. It was so hilarious. There were parts where Aro weirdness caused people to laugh, like I did, for example is weird laugh. Overall I think Michael Sheen did a good performance as Aro. I didn’t cry. I felt happy at the end how every thing seemed to wrap up very nicely just like the book, and we were able to see all the actors/characters being mentioned at the very end. The one disappointment was that Garrett didn’t get a chance to do his speech. That was something I was looking forward to. Do you think it’s part of the deleted scenes? I hope so. All his scenes were perfect, especially with Kate, and very close to the book. I think they also did a great job introducing all the new characters. It was really much better than I expected.

    Right. So, I went to the ‘midnight’ premiere of Breaking Dawn Part Two with my mom. First of all? It was at 10:08 PM not midnight so I don’t know why my theatre kept calling it the ‘midnight premiere’ but that is irrelevant. I’ve read all the books and have seen every movie. The only two I’ve actually paid to see at the theatre were the first one and this one. I personally enjoyed the first three books but after reading Breaking Dawn my feelings for the series dramatically changed. I thought it was cracktastic and I’ve read better fanfiction. I had to PUSH myself through Breaking Fail and I couldn’t help singing ‘TRESemmé ooooh la la’ every time my eyes saw Renesmee printed on the pages.

    Having read and seen the series I’ve always felt like I could hate on it all I want. I have NEVER judged any book or movie that I have not experienced myself nor will I ever do that. I also do not judge others who are a part of the Twilight fandom, everyone is entitled to be a fan of whatever he or she chooses to be. (Unless of course he or she are one of these fans who cut their necks when they meet RPattz hoping he will suck their blood…these few are just asking to be judged okay? Sigh. Poor Rpattz hates his Twilight life as much as he hates being called Rpattz.)

    I basically have a love/hate relationship with the series and fandom as a whole and quite honestly? Most of the time I love to hate it.

    Earlier this week I read an interview on Hypable by one of my favorite people ever- Andrew Sims. I knew I would be going to see it last night with my mom because it is what she wanted for her birthday and well? I’m a good daughter okay and was willing to subject myself to the over zealous tweeners and soccer moms. I knew what I was in for but I wanted to know more about the actual subject matter. Sims wrote an excellent review and when I saw that they had changed the ending for the movie I was interested to see what they had done because the anticlimactic ending of the book was just one of the many problems I had with Breaking Fail.

    BUT HOLY CRAP! Good on you Breaking Dawn plot twist ending. Good on you! At first I thought I was going to die from all the laughing I could not control over Aro’s reaction to seeing TRESemmé (seriously the whole theatre was dying, who laughs like that Aro? Who laughs like that? Apparently you do and I can’t take you seriously anymore!) and then my arms were outstretched while I kept saying ‘WTF’ very loudly over and over as characters were beheaded/killed. I was NOT prepared for that and actually believed it was happening until I was brought back into reality. The plot twist was extremely violent and hardcore. It was all anyone could talk about as we were exiting the theatre. THAT IS WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE BOOK OKAY? Much better than all of them just standing around talking it.

    It was most definitely the best movie yet, and I find it humorous that I have such a strong hatred for the book but actually liked both movie parts of Breaking Dawn.

    1. Garrett. I thought I was a fan of him before but after the movie? Huge fan.

    2. Renesmee will always be TRESemmé but Mackenzie Foy was spot on casting.

    3. The pacing of the movie was very well done. I did not find myself getting bored like I did with the other films.

    4. I did NOT like the CGI effects of TRESemmé as a baby and a toddler. The baby was a little creepy.

    5. I’m STILL unforgiving about my theatre NOT showing the City of Bones trailer or the Catching Fire logo teaser.

    6. Alice is a BAMF!

    7. Pretty sure Honey Boo Boo’s entire family was sitting two rows in front of us.

    8. Overheard before the movie started: “How do you spell Twilight?” (-__-)

    9. Billy Burke was flawless as always and is still a love of my life.

    10. THE ENDING! ASDFGHJKL I WAS NOT PREPARED.

  • katiemaria

    Oh i loved it! cried so bad during the fight (carlisle, jasper, seth and leah especially! :( ) and at the end during the credits :( lucky charlie getting to see that ;) and the whooooole cinema cracked up when Michael sheen did that laugh!!! :D

  • Cam

    4 words: I WAS NOT PREPARED!
    Loved the books (a fun read) throughout high school and going to see the films at all the midnight releases and such, but was never very pleased with how the movies were done. The cheesy acting and lines kind of ruined the movies for me, I just never felt the connection I felt when reading the books. BD2 would probably be no different if they didn’t do SOMETHING to make the ending more interesting and actually caring about the characters (definitely teared up at the end), and so I was extremely happy with the outcome. Definitely my favorite of the movies, and it was a great way to end the series :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/prince.larida Prince G Larida

    renesme’s CGI was really bad, especially when she was a baby, but the story was amazing! especially the last 10 minutes of it where the fight in alice’s vision happened. at first when carlisle lost his head i was so shocked that i had to cover my mouth from screaming then, i started crying when seth died XD

  • CRYSTALUV

    Did you think the ending overall was a great way to send off the Saga? YES!!!! AMAZING END TO THE SAGA. THAT TWIST AT THE END HAD EVERYONE GASPING IN THE THEATER. I ABSOLUTLEY LOVED IT!
    - What did you think of Renesmee and actress Mackenzie Foy? I DIDNT LIKE THE SPECIAL EFFECTS FOR RENESMEE AS A BABY AND AT ONE POINT AS SHE’S GETTING OLDER. IT LOOKED EXTREMELY FAKE. MACKENZIE FOY DIDN’T HAVE MUCH LINES IN THE MOVIE, SO I CAN’T BASE HER ACTING SKILLS ON THIS MOVIE. SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE HER IN UPCOMING MOVIES.
    - Were you as charmed as we were when Jacob stripped in front of Charlie? NO NOT REALLY.
    - How wicked was Michael Sheen’s performance as Aro? HE DID AN AMAZING JOB AS ARO. KUDOS MICHAEL SHEEN!!
    - Did you cry? I GOT TEARY EYED. I DONT WANT TO SPOIL IT FOR OTHER’S BUT I LOVE JASPER HALE AND WELL, I LITERALLY HAD TO GASP FOR AIR :( BUT IT WAS A GREAT MOVIE. AND THE ENDING WAS PERFECT. I LOOOOOVE HOW BELLA SHARED HER VISIONS OF EDWARD WITH EDWARD, IT GAVE HIM A SENSE OF HER THOUGHTS THROUGH OUT THE YEARS AND HOW SHE FELT FOR HIM. THAT SCENE IN PARTICULAR GOT ME A LITTLE…

  • http://twitter.com/Aniak86 Ania K

    To be honest, I would have been fine if the vampire deaths at the end were not part of a a vision, but real. Stephanie Meyers said (long ago) that if the two groups had to fight, the Cullens would have massive casualties. It made the ending so much more interesting.

    But when they started killing off the wolves, that was it. You cannot show a close-up of the light going out of Seth’s eyes and his sister falling in slow motion to her death, with a close up of her stricken face.
    It’s just too cruel.

    The rest would have been fine :) The movie was a ton of fun!

  • Gary65

    My reaction to this movie is twofold:

    1: …………………………….FUCK ME, THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    2. Irish people do not act like that. Irish people do not dress like that. Irish people DO NOT talk like that.

    That is all.

    • 7Starrchasers

      To be fair they are Irish ‘vampires’ not people…they’ve lived all over the place…so things are bound to change.. didn’t bother me too much.

      • Gary65

        Yes but all the other vamps that live in modern society reflect that society. That is not irish society. When they came up, my entire theatre burst into laughter.

  • Gary65

    Personally, I think the main reason Stephenie had the twist in the movie is cos she wanted to to shut up all the Twi-hards who complain about BD’s ending. It was a like her saying “Really? This is what you would have preferred? A mass slaughter of all the good characters?”

    • J17

      Exactly! I wonder if Andrew would still prefer this ending in the book.

    • loveliz432

      That’s exactly what i was thinking

  • KK

    My whole theatre burst into giggles whenever the Russian vamps would talk. Still really enjoyed the movie, by far the best of the series.

    • Alexandra

      ROMANIAN vampires. Not Russian..-__-

  • Miss Kate

    I still feel sick an hour after watching the fight scene, seeing Carlisle’s head omg! However, as many others have said Alice could not predict the future as she can’t see Jake and Nessie it would have made much more sense for her to have just brought Nahuel forward to prove that Nessie would be no threat!
    Jasper is meant to be the best fighter so I didn’t think that he would be killed off but I suppose that they would go for him to try to gain Alice or just prevent more deaths?! I was sooo upset when Seth was killed he’s my favourite character & I didn’t want Leah to die either but I would hate one of them to be without the other! I was so happy when Jane was killed & Aro of course but am SOOO relieved that it was all a dream just the way in which Carlisle died I thought that it couldn’t be true!

  • Gary65

    Carlisle dies

    Inner me: WTHolyF?

    Jasper dies

    Inner me: nfijrwlfhiomqxioprxi

    Seth dies.

    Inner me: NO!! NO!!!! STOP THE GENOCIDE!!!!!

  • Lorena

    I loved the flash forward. Being honest, I was disappointed it turned out to be just a vision. I know I’ll probably get all sorts of hate, but seriously, it was an awesome scene. And the Vulturi would have died. So worth the deaths of some characters. Yes, some supporting characters died. That made the whole movie much more realistic.

    • hpatdh33

      I hoped it was real too, the entire series i hated the Vulturi. So with the knowledge of them changing the ending of the book, I was so happy to see them all fighting because I thought the climax of the series should have orginally ended with a war against the vulturi. I’m quite disappointed those F&^%ers are still alive.

  • http://twitter.com/potterfan92 Raina

    It was ok and the battle scene was cool. I felt cheated because of what happens after the battle.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stiina-Sild/100000528613611 Stiina Sild

    The ending was great. This flash foward was great. I literally was shocked when Carlisle dead.

    Rensemee CGI was awful. Mackenzie Foy played very well.

    Jacob´s and Charlie´s scene was one of the best in all Twilight movies.

    It was´t Deathly Hallows part 2 so I didn´t cry.

    PS! I loved the tribute to allmost all characters in the end.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brittany.rockey Brittany Rockey

    Umm wasn’t anyone else mad that Jackson Rathbone and a post from Sept 11 on here pretty much ruined the end!?!?!?!? In the article, it said Jackson “acknowledged cryptically” that there are “IMPLICATIONS of a battle.” Andrew also wrote that a popular “fan theory” was that the battle would turn out to be one of Alice’s visions. Rathbone also says, ” “What I think happens, after you watch the movie and the credits roll,
    it’ll say ‘thank you for watching,’ then you’ll see Billy Burke’s
    character Charlie Swan waking up and being like ‘Oh thank God, it was
    all a dream!”

    I know this wasn’t exactly what happened, but I’m kind of mad that this was posted and that all of this was hinted at, and turned out to be essentially played out. As soon as Carlisle died, I knew it was a dream or a vision or something…Good movie though…as Andrew likes to say…Best one yet!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/brittany.rockey Brittany Rockey

    Wasn’t anyone else mad that an article from Sept. 11 with Jackson Rathbone ruined the ending?1?!?!

  • plzstp

    The saga was concluded nicely, I loved it. I’m not a big fan of Renesmee / Mackenzie, but she was very charming. The scene between Charlie and Jacob was very funny, everyone in the audience was laughing. Aro was scary as hell (and that laugh when he saw Nessie!). I cried like a baby.
    When the ‘fight’ started and Carlisle was killed (did you see Esme’s face?), I thought I’d have to murder someone. But thank god they were just trolling us.

  • Virginia

    -I don’t think they could have made the ending any better! It wrapped up the series perfectly and I loved it!
    -I wasn’t a huge fan of Renesmee, I thought the baby form of her looked weird and she kinda annoyed me all together…
    -I loved Jacob in this movie, and that’s saying a lot! I even liked the fact that he imprinted on Renesmee, even though I couldn’t stand it in the books
    -Aro was crazy!!!
    -I did not cry but I was definitely on an emotional roller coaster during the whole movie:)

  • http://www.facebook.com/lauren.kay2 Lauren Glover

    Did anyone else think Aro’s laugh/cackle think was strikingly similar to Rumplestilkson’s in Once Upon a Time?

    A question who was that Volturi guard that was traking Nessie and Jacob . The one near the end of the movie that Jacob killed.Also could he piece hiself together or is the wolf bite deadly

    • Merina

      Santiago. Not in the books, but in the Twilight Guide and the Breaking Dawn index :)

  • Tucker

    I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I heard the figures, how did Breaking Dawn Part 1, make more than the final Twilight film? Did the marketing fail that bad?

  • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

    I didn’t cry during the movie, but the credits kind of did it for me. It felt like a hommage to the series and the books, and I really liked it. I wasn’t completely believing the battle sequence to be true, but at a certain point I thought they had shown it for too long of a time, to not be true anymore, and then it wasn’t true. I really loved that they did it though, but I wouldn’t be ok with it if it were for real, because that would be way to far from the books. If the books however, would have ended like that, I would be more than happy.

  • JP0608

    1. I thought the ending was awesome! I about had a stroke when the fight scene started and they killed Carlise! When previously asked about “all the build up but no fight scene in the end of the book”, Stephanie Meyer had stated that had there been a fight scene she knew exactly who would have to die and she couldn’t bear killing off the characters she loved so much! So I thought this was a excellent way to give us the climatic fight scene w/out having to live through the reality of having any of the beloved Cullens actually die… (You should’ve heard the sigh of relief and laughter from the audience when we realized that it was just a vision.)

    2. Renesmee (the CG versions) where not very good. I was extremely disappointed at the quality – given how much the Saga is worth I thought they could have invested much more into the baby and blending the CG facial expressions. Very Disappointed. BUT I thought Mackenzie Foy was a darling and sooooo beautiful and was a great pick for Edward & Bella’s daughter.

    3. I wouldn’t say “charmed” was the right word for Jacob taking his clothes off in front of Charlie (LOL) but it was a great moment! Billy Burke was awesome as always and it was great that they included such a funny moment from the book into the movie.
    4. Michael Sheen was definitely wicked… He portrays Aro very well.
    5. I’m an avid fan but nope didn’t cry.

  • http://www.facebook.com/valerie.montgomery.963 Valerie Montgomery

    I actually walked out when Carlisle died. for those of us who love the books the twist with the vision fight sucked!!! Thats why I loved the books because they tried everything they could to make sure no fight accured thats who the cullens are

  • Crazy-Eight23

    I didn’t really like Aro in this. Everything else was amazing.

  • val

    Ending shocked me so bad I started crying! If it would have been the real ending, I would have hated the movie all together. In the end I was relieved but still upset :(

  • Mariah

    I thought it was one of the best ones of the series. The CGI of the wolves has come a long way from New Moon but the running scenes and Renesmee’s face as she grew were on of the most cringe worthy things about this installment. Still, I felt like Kristen Stewart’s performance here was much better than in previous movies. She was Bella and she was a mother as well as a vampire. She really got those three across and she embraced her fierce side incredibly well I think. The battle scene was awesome, and the plot twist even more so. Perfect way to give the story a good decent climax, and not upset the loyal fans by changing the plot. But the best thing about this film, besides the beautiful cinematography and smart direction from Bill Condon, was the meadow scene. When Bella showed Edward her memories, I teared up. Something caught in my throat as I saw the flashback from when Bella first sees Edward, when Edward leaves etc. It reminded me how much these two love each other, a concept really clear in the books but that hasn’t really been succesfully conveyed on film. Yes we’ve had tons of scenes where Bella and Edward kiss, stare at each other and drool over each other. But this scene I felt was the only one in the whole series that really showed their love, and all they have gone through together. It’s hard to describe, but it made Bella and Edward’s love real for me. I left the cinema with a bittersweet feeling. I was truly satisfied with the ending, but sad that it was the end.

    The only real issue I have with this film is that I feel like they could have very well made Breaking Dawn just one film, and not two and it would have been a much better finale. Nothing really happens on Part 2 aside from the battle that couldnt have been cut or reduced. But hey just my opinion.

    When will there be another episode of imprint with your reactions to the movie? I miss listening to your opinions on things.

    I recently wrote a review of the movie on my movie review blog, Rom Coms and the Real World. To sum it up (and answer some of your questions), in my review I say: “I think what’s most impressive about this entry in the Twilight series is its humor. Don’t get me wrong, all of the Twilight films have been hilarious, but I’ve usually been laughing at the movies, not with them. This film gives us some intentional humor that actually lands. Bella’s dad, Charlie (Billy Burke), is one of the best things about the series and he has a great scene with Jacob (Taylor Lautner) that manages to make fun of Lautner’s much lauded physique while also advancing the plot. I feel like I’ve died and gone to vampire heaven.” You can read my full review here: http://realworldromcom.blogspot.com/2012/11/review_18.html

    I have one question. Why didn’t Alice just sacrifice herself for her family, in the vision?

    A fight could never have broken out, even in ‘that future’ – because she’d have seen that Jasper would have died, along with so many others. She’d have just given herself up in exchange for her family’s freedom, right? Right…?

  • hpatdh33

    I actually preferred what was happening before we were brought back to reality. I was kind of disappointed when it was all fake. I know its how the book goes. But the books ending is so weak I was actually hoping the filmmakers had something else in mind.

  • Sarah Morris

    Did you think the ending overall was a great way to send off the Saga?
    – I loved the ending of the movie so much better than the book’s. The book was very anticlimactic, but I thought this was perfect. Same general story just amped up a bit. I read or heard that Stephenie Meyer said she didn’t want a fight because she knew some of “our side” would have had to die. This stayed true to that without changing anything. I would have been traumatized if the deaths had really happened – especially Carlisle.

    What did you think of Renesmee and actress Mackenzie Foy?

    – Baby/Toddler CG Renesmee was kind of creepy. Once it got to the actual child it was fine.

    Were you as charmed as we were when Jacob stripped in front of Charlie?

    – Heck yeah! I think my entire theater would agree.

    How wicked was Michael Sheen’s performance as Aro?

    – OMG! That laugh was possibly the creepiest laugh ever! I would also like to add that I totally loved Draculas 1 & 2! I loved that the one sounded just like you’d expect Dracula to. Are we supposed to take that as he was Dracula or at least what a lot of these stories were based on?

    Did you cry?

    – I teared up during the vision (especially for Seth and Leah), but actually cried during the credits! I don’t know why it was so sad for me, but I think including the shots of the book’s pages and text made it worse for some reason. Maybe because I just recently re-read all of the books for the first time since the release of Breaking Dawn, so it seemed that much more personal or something.

    Overall I am very happy with Part Two! If only Twilight could have been this good!

  • AmazingPerson<3

    T’was amazing! Funniest part had to be Jacob stripping infront of Charlie, and then saddest was when the battle scene was going on

  • Alex

    I was SO shocked when Carlisle, Jasper, Leah, and Seth died. Then later when it went back to Alice showing Aro the future my thought’s were “Thank God, that was just Alice showing Aro the future and there was no fight ever.”

  • Kairi Stark

    As my best friend so eliquently exclaimed in the movie theater, “We were emotionally raped”

  • Kairi Stark

    Also! On the way home we asked my nephew what he thought about the “lovey” scenes. He was like, “It was just alot of weird hugging, and there was like 10 hands, I didnt even know who all those hands were from” lmfao

  • Maya

    It all happened so quick! it feels like it was too short.. and Im confused.. did Carlisle die or not? He wasnt shown at the end..

  • Emily

    after they cut to Alice showing Aro the vision, I yelled out in the crowded theater, “OH MY GOD JASPER’S OKAY!!!”
    no film has gotten that kind of emotion out of me before. congrats to the Twilight franchise for creating one of the best endings to any film saga I have ever seen.

  • Harry Potter fan

    This movie was by far the best. Hats off to Bill Condon for getting ‘Edward” right finally. He was so much like to the book Edward that I’m smiling thinking about it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jannholl Judy Johnson Holland

    Yes. It was a great way to end the movie and the saga. Meyer did not have alice’s flash forward scene in the book and it was a great addition. The story and the movie needed it to happen.
    Ms. Foy did a great job but there wasn’t much to do as an actress. A little too much CGI but I knew they were going to do it. It was needed.
    I was surrounded in the theater by rows and rows of 14 years olds who screamed and giggled when Jacob took off his clothes and my daughter and I laughed. It made it fun.
    On Michael Sheen: He stole the show. He always steals the show whenever he’s in a scene. His over-the-top giggle at Renessmee’s heartbeat was hysterical. Great actor and the best casting. No one could have done a better job.
    Cry? Oh, heck no. Give me a break. Lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/jannholl Judy Johnson Holland

    Also…Although it has been mentioned that Alice cannot see wolves in her visions, that all changed once Jacob imprinted on Renessmee. Now, Alice can see the wolves also.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jannholl Judy Johnson Holland

    Rumor has it that Meyer is secretly continuing the saga but from another direction. I sincerely hope not. It would have to be epic and even better than the “Twilight we already know. Some things are better left alone.

  • Peacci

    That wasn’t the ending I expected. It didn’t follow the book.
    And vampires are cold and hard like stone, how come Bella’s father didn’t notice that when they hugged??

    • Average girl

      He did notice, if you watch the movie again, pay attention to how Charlie reacts when he first hugs her. He sort-of looks down at her, lifts his hands up more as if he’s wondering if it was just the one area that felt cold (kinda like how certain body parts of ours are cold to the touch at times) and moves his hands to find a warmer area. From having just witnessed Jacob turn into a wolf, and saying Bella changed, as well as how Bella tries to tell him at first that if he really does need to know what happened to her, she has to leave (for his safety)… I assume he didn’t point it out or make any reference that she was hard & cold as stone. Because he hadn’t seen or heard from her for a long while, he was just so happy to have her back, and left it at that.

    I’m from Ireland and the HORRIBLE Irish accent vampires got a good laugh.

  • ladybirds

    Breaking Dawn was my least favourite book of the series. I have seen the movie today and I really liked what they did at the end. I’ve read about they added that seen but did not know how they tied it. It was surprisingly good. Made the movie enjjoyable. I wish Stephenie Meyer wrote it that way too. :-)

  • Whitney

    I honestly like the Twilight books, but I’m one of those fans that understands how badly the movies suck, but I still had to see BD part 2. With that said, I laughed nearly the entire time. Between the awkward acting and that damn CGI baby/child, I lost it. I almost died laughing at Michael Sheen’s giggle at the end. I will admit that I almost had a heart attack during Alice’s vision. Everyone I know that didn’t read the book(s) loved the movie. I couldn’t take it seriously.

  • Tomas

    Movie is really epic, CGI was fantastic, LOVED how they did Renesmee.
    I DIED when I saw the battle scene, it was EPIC. Dakota was amazing as Jane, Kristen was supergood as always and kicked ass as a vampire, Rob was great too, just loved EVERYTHING about this movie!

  • http://www.facebook.com/irene.windorski Irene Windorski

    Was it just me or did I miss the part were Bella let’s Edward “Hear” her thoughts? I saw a movie montage of Bell’s life since knowing Edward, Sorta like what Renesmee does to communcate with people… I also agree the CGI baby was really bad!

  • May

    Best film ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • May

    I am definitely team Edward!!!

  • Awesom

    Yes I cried

  • tigerviper

    i thought that the movie was awesome and that Mackenzie Foy did a very awesome job at playing Renesmee even if the end was very cool even if its was a vision just wished the movie had more parts with jasper in it and the vision made him seem weak with dying earily in the vision

  • why

    The ending was just so so so very bad. When I started watching breaking dawn part 2 I thought it was going to be my favorite twilight movie, but they just had to mess with the ending, how hard it is to stick with the original story. I mean I would understand if they would have done many things differently from the beginning, but mess with the ending that’s just sick. I’m not even that big twilight fan, but that touched me so much, I really liked the books, but they just had to ruin the films for me, why? I mean I understand that it might have been more blood more viewers technique, but seriously. It was just so horrible, I mean how they ripped every head that could possible be ripped. And Carlisle, Jasper really? If Stephenie Meyer wanted that sick slaughter so much, she should have written it in a book.
