Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1
After three movies of people making countless convincing arguments for why Bella (Kristen Stewart) shouldn't give her future and very heartbeat to 110-year-old vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), she goes through with the wedding, then makes the dangerous decision to remain human during their bed-smashing, pillow-thrashing, body-bashing honeymoon on a secluded island off the coast of Rio de Janeiro. Bella ssoon realizes that she's missing periods, having morning sickness, and it all becomes too obvious that she's pregnant. Death for Bella is almost certain if she decides to carry the baby to term, but it's a chance she's willing to take.

When Jacob (Taylor Lautner) comes by and observes her obvious condition, he gets to bellow an immortal accusation to Edward: “You did this!” As Edward searches for a proper rejoinder, Jacob again scampers off, whereupon the local werewolf tribe reacts with a lot of teeth-baring and internal bickering over what to do. Meanwhile, Bella turns pale and gaunt and seems in danger of wasting away; it appears the fetus is taking all of the nutrients for itself and leaving nothing for Mom, who can no longer eat normal food. There's only one solution to this state of affairs, the administering of which brings Bella back to life as Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 pushes toward its finale.

Director Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls") gives us a few standout moments amidst the grave lunacy, including some nice imagery in Bella's pre-wedding nightmare, all red and dead against a stark white background, a dream sequence of Bella's wedding vows, a wedding toast that's energized by the wistful wisecracking of Bella's friend Jessica (Anna  Kendrick), all culminating in a pool of blood and roses and a pile of the dead bodies of all her family and friends. But, there's hardly enough plot to sustain a film which is mostly about people, in whichever supernatural form they take, standing around making wooden pronouncements.
