I am not much for vampires, werewolves, and melodramatic teenage drama, but I have to admit: “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” proved to be an alright movie as a whole.
I simply like going to the see the saga’s movies because I can enjoy the time with my friends. However, this film actually had me paying attention rather than laughing whenever a vampire sparkled in the sunlight.
“Breaking Dawn” is a slight step above the rest. All of the three main characters fell victim to this at some point in the movie.
There were moments of deep emotion and suspense that had me sitting on the edge of my seat. But these moments of stride was overshadowed by the movie’s stumbles. Too many characters and sub-plots distracted from the moments that the movie shined through.
After the series has its final curtain call, I hope that we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief that a story about a female’s earth shattering struggle to decide between two attractive males will finally be done.
