Adventurous and highly unrealistic romance of The Summit EntertainmentÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s trilogy, Breaking Dawn, has placed itself well within a majority of females as a heart throbbing movie. As a female, who could easily resist the good-looking, romantic, wealthy, smart and muscular men? Besides, these men can do anything for you immortally! Yes, these perfect men, though they are not real human beings, do exist in the Twilight! With this ideal background, the Summit has produced wonderful marketing trailers which attracted viewers by revealing bits of charming scenes. The set-up and marketing work have been very successful as it attracted many to buy the movie tickets yet the production of The Summit and acting of gorgeous actors and actresses could not meet the high expectations set up within the viewers.
To summarize the previous film, Eclipse, which ended just before the main actress, Bella (Kristen Stewart) chooses her vampire boy friend, Edward (Robert Pattison) for marriage over her long time wolf friend, Jacob (Taylor Lautner). How similar this is to every teenager girlÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s dream, being able to pick the only one out of two equally attractive men! With the love developed from the previous three films of Twilight, I could not wait until November 2011 to watch the fourth episode, Breaking Dawn. So, instead of waiting for more than a year until the film is released, I could not help but read a book to fulfill my curiosity and yes, my fantasy. Perhaps, this was not a very smart idea.
When you read, you have a privilege of extending limitless imaginations based on your own past experience. Expecting 110 minutes long movie to show what 700+ page book covers, was perhaps too greedy. During the movie, the preparation of wedding consumed one third of the entire movie whereas there was no explanation of how story continues to develop. The story jumps here to there, leaving the viewers confused and to do their own homework of connecting the plot. For example, when Jacob was communicating with his clan members through his mind, there was no symbol or message of how they are connected to each other. If I had not read the book, I would question if Jacob could read peopleÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s mind like Edward. In addition, when Bella was transforming into a vampire at the end of the movie, there was also no description of what she was going through. If there was a narration of her voice at least, it would definitely allow viewers to understand what she was experiencing.
Moving on to critique acting of main characters to explain how confused I felt along with others, Bella and EdwardÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s emotional expression was not expressed well either. Through their rigid acting and sometimes toneless voice as if they were reading the script, I just had to assume that they were in serious or urgent situations. Their appearances offered viewers a great pleasure, but their inabilities in conveying emotions to the viewers also offered uncomforting feelings as well.
Breaking Dawn had snap shots of beautiful scenes just like trailers. However, showing only pretty scenes of a few events with stunning castings but without proper production and acting will produce only a disappointing movie. If you only want to entertain your eyes, not your mind, with romantic movies with stunning characters, I would recommend you to watch the movie. Otherwise, just grab the book. It will do you better.
