I like the cinematography. The combination of 3D animated effects with live actors was professionally done and looks really good on the screen. I also like the way the love triangle between Edward, Jacob and Bella has seems to have matured. Being an urban fantasy geek, I love the world building in the story! What I found disappointing was Kristin's acting. Her "happy scenes", "sad scenes" and "shocked" moments all looked the same. She might be beautiful but she blatantly can't act. She is saved from total disaster by the apparently talented make-up astist and creative props team who made her look thin and sickly when she is suppose to. But I couldn't see much acting going on there. That brought the entertainment value of this movie for me down a couple of notches. I like Bella but Kristin ruined her character. I sincerely hope it gets better in the second installment.
Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 cherries
