The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I (2011) - Review
But that's not all. Then we get a sex montage, interspersed with the newlyweds playing chess, because there's nothing hotter than chess. And then halfway through the movie, Bella finally gets pregnant and the story starts. The story is awful and paper-thin. It basically goes: Bella pregnant, werewolves don't like abomination child, Bella gets sick whilst preggers. That's it. You might think there's more as the movie still has around an hour left. But no, that's all there is.
The acting is almost uniformly awful, with Taylor Lautner being astoundingly bad. It's actually almost impressive how bad he is, not that anybody could make this flimsy script appealing. Though I'll give them this: there's one HILARIOUS scene in which the werewolves are all in their bad CGI forms and they start arguing telepathically like some awful Disney movie. Imagine Homeward Bound minus the charm of Michael J. Fox and the...you know...real animals. Though if you're a fan of CGI so terrible that even Underworld wouldn't use it, then you'll feel right at home with this butchering of film.
