Advantages: such a beautiful film
Disadvantages: im not bella!!!
When the Twilight film was released i refused to go see it as i loved the book so much and didnt want to be dissapointed as i usualy am once I have already read the book first.I was given the dvd as a birthday present. I had to watch it after being asked my opinion from my friend who got it for me. I thought it was BRILLIANT I was so worried that it would be a let down but I can not say anything bad about the film other than i should have been bella!!
The film starts of with a teenage girl named Bella who moves to Forks to live with her dad. She has to start a new school which she finds boring until she locks eyes onto the beautiful, standoffish Cullen family.
She is forced to work next to Edward Cullen in Biology but he makes his distaste of this known which hurts Bella but she does not realise he is doing this to protect her as Edward and his family are vampires.
Edward finds himself highly protective over Bella and is always there in seconds to help her. When Bella finds out Edward is a vampire she tells Edward she is not afraid of him and although Edward warns her to stay away from him the couples love blossoms.
All goes wrong when Bella joins Edwards's family for a Vampire game of baseball. They are joined with another vampire family who when they smell Bella's blood they try to kill her. The Cullen family try and move Bella away from forks whilst they kill the vampires James and Vitoria but will they get past the Cullen's?
I think it took the bigger parts from the book and I do not feel any main parts of the book where missed out so anyone who loves the book, but is unsure if to watch the film then i say go for it. Also anyone who liked this film read the book you will not be dissapointed.
Summary: a film i can watch over and over again
