| This 3rd film in the Twilight Series starts a little slowly with a reintroduction of
its main characters, heroine Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), more
determined than ever to go vampire for her undead boyfriend - the
gloomy dreamboat Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), an ancient being
who still hasn't graduated high school; and Jacob Black (Taylor
Lautner), a bare-chested Native American who
shape-shifts into a wolf at a moment's notice.
But, things pick up rapidly following the introductions with the girl/vampire/werewolf triangle becoming increasingly intense when a crime wave hits Seattle, close to the bucolic
Washington town that shelters so many supernatural creatures,
without any of its citizens catching on apparently. A series of vicious
killings and disappearances tip off the Cullen clan that a vampire
is creating an army of newly turned vampires whose
ravenous thirst makes them stronger and more deadly than "old"
The villainess here is red-headed Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard), who is seeking revenge
against the Cullens, particularly Edward, and she is also planning to destroy
Bella. All of which causes Edward and Jacob to contemplate a temporary alliance to protect the girl they both
Director, David Slade ("30 Days of
Night") quickly establishes a rapid yet unhurried pace and an unapologetic
indulgence in this basic fantasy of every teenage girl - that two
high school hunks are in love with her and willing to die for her,
except, of course, one of them is already undead. With more action and humor than either of its predecessors, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
should prove to be the most successful of this popular series.
