At the beginning of 2011, my girlfriend Daisy started reading the Twilight Books, and I promised her I would watch the movies with her as long as she finished each book. I was originally fearing that the movies were going to dreadful (never read the books myself), but they ended up ranging from decent to enjoyable. I don't know if you could consider me a "fan", but I'm not a cynical critic either.
The film picks up with Bella Cullen as a "newborn" vampire after almost dying while giving birth to her half-vampire daughter Renesmee. She quickly learns and adapts to her new vampire powers while learning to resist the scent of humans.
She must also redefine her personal life as her human friends and family would be in danger if they knew the truth about her new-found "abilities". Life seems perfect until an old friend mistakes her young daughter as an "immortal child", which is a crime in the vampire world. She informs the ultimate vampire authority, the Volturi who seek to destroy the Cullens for what they are accused of committing The whole family must gather witnesses proving that Renessmee is a half-vampire, and to confirm that her unheard status is not a threat to their kind.
While the second part of Breaking Dawn might seem a bit anti-climatic at times, it does get very exciting during the final confrontation including a twist that will make your head spin. Ironically I think Kristen Stewart's character Bella is more human as a vampire than she was as a person. All the faults I had with the previous movies are virtually non-existent in this film, and I really think they did a fantastic job. If all the movies were like this then I'm confident that the series would have far less jaded naysayers.
