My Thoughts:
So I watched Breaking Dawn (Part 2) at the cinemas and I was happy enough with it. I am a sucker for happily ever afters (HEA) and I got what I wanted. However, I have to say that the Twilight series was just a long drawn out affair marketed dry to the very last drop. What would have been a spectaular movie experience is now a dried up husk of a beautiful thing. I could still see the beauty in it but the enjoyment is diminished by how they marketed it, as in they chopped the movie into little pieces to span several years. The Lord Of The Rings was chopped to bits but you can see there was a lot packed in every section/in every movie. And the sections makes sense, not just drawn out for the sake of marketing it out to dry, which the Twilight series was. I think I would be wary about watching films by Bill Condon next time. Maybe I'll just buy them in dvd format if they really look good. But go to the cinema again? I don't think so. I think I am one of those fans disillusioned by the movie outcome of the book largely contributed by how Bill Condon messed it up.

Kristen Stewart is very pretty which made up for her lack of acting abilities. But... the cinematographic effects was fantastic! I noticed it with Twilight (the first movie installment) and I am happy to see that it has persisted to the final movie installment of the Twilight saga! Gotta give kudos to the cinematographic team!!

At the end of it, I did enjoy the film and I would rate it a 3.5 out of 5 in terms of entertainment value.
Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5 cherries
