Newest Review: ... I would recommend it as a purchase. There is a lack of extra features on the DVD, which made the price of £13.99 seem excessive, as you a... more

I am really not sure I like this film...
Kristen Stewart plays Bella Swan, who has just moved to Forks to stay with her Dad due to her mum going travelling with the new husband.
At school she meets Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson and they are drawn to each other. Turns out though that he is a vampire, but a good one that doesn't feed on humans (how many times is that one going to be used? It worked in Buffy and now everyone is a good vampire. Pfft!).
Edward has to protect Bella from the other vampires who want to munch on her, and does this with the help of his vampire family.
Firstly, Robert Pattinson. Every was ranting about how gorgeous he was after he starred in this... sorry I really don't agree. Average.
Secondly, I do not like the character of Bella at all. I don't know why but I found her to be a bit of a muppet. Her reactions are totally unrealistic and no one in her shoes would act that way.
Kristen Stewart who played her, I thought was naff. Too hesitant and in my opinion did not deliver her lines well at all. No conviction or emotion really. She also done thid weird "thing" (which I think was supposed to show she was under Edward's 'spell') with her eyes and it looked utterly stupid. I thought she was going to have a seizure or sneeze.
Edward Cullen was an odd character and I couldn't really warm to him either, he didn't really have much of interest to say. That being said, even though I do not find Robert Pattinson attractive in the slightest I couldn't help but keep my eyes glued to him.
Pattinson's acting was okay, he was a broody vampire. Nothing more, nothing less really.
The plot did not exactly thrill me, I found it all a little slow, the relationship with Bella and Edward did not feel "real" at all.
The 'bad guy' didn't really come into play until the end of the film which I didn't like either... it was almost like someone thought " oh darn we forgot the badguy, quick chuck him in".
Not something I would watch again and after seeing it I would not be tempted to read the book either.
Was sorely let down after being really excited about watching this...
Summary: I won't be watching the next one
