This movie is awful. Pretty and well shot but terribly performed. Character development is moot when it is clear that the actors were hired for their looks alone. I was so distracted by Kristen's inability to portray emotions and for Robert's incessant blinking throughout the film that I was embarrassed sitting next to all the people I made watch it with me. The books were enchanting and I couldn't wait for the movie. Wonder how much pull Meyer actually had on the film. I was so disappointed that I don't even want this POS in my collection gathering dust with other, way better titles. Just sad.

I think it's a beautiful story about overcoming any and all obstacles/differences to be with the one you love (even immortality). I think the book gives a better credence to the development of the bond between Edward and Bella. The movie rushes their relationship but what love story on the silver screen doesn't? Edward's passion for Bella is breathtaking. Clean, no sex, little profanity. I only own a few movies and this one is definitely a keeper!

Great movie about young love without all the sex scenes.

Awkward. And awkward. But mostly awkward. The screenplay sounds like it was written by a 13 year old girl. Try to count all the "like"s "huh"s and awkward pauses and you will fail. In defense of the film, it's my understanding that the books are that way. So, if you liked the books and/or are a 13 year old girl (maybe those two things are one in the same) you should love this movie. If you just want to see what all the ruckus is about, watch one of the later films. At least they have some action scenes.

"One hopes they weren't trying to be serious with this film, otherwise it might fall victim to "Mystery Science Theatre 3000". This is for spoony prepubescent girls who want their chimerical vampiric fantasies played out on the silver screen. Naturally, it's 'fleshed-out' by a wealthy, feminine, melanin-challenged brit with a fetish for bathing in diamond glitter and repeating his senior year 83 times (funny how his teachers haven't noticed). The sun should give vamps without SPF 6.5 million a really bad day. Not these--their skin simply sparkles. Right, got it...The plot has more holes than the neck of Dracula's favorite mistress, and I suspect the script was a product of Dr. Seuss' failed attempt at romance. The only thing I enjoyed was the scenery of Forks, WA. The weather there is unbearable, but it did provide a sylvan eeriness and haunting backdrop for the story.
Now go watch the original dracula and Nosferatu beFORE i BITE your NECK. MuuuuuHAHAHAHA
