This movie did an exceptional job of adapting the book to film. It captured the key elements of the book, which I wasn't sure could be pulled off. Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana were awesome. I loved the changes that were made. This movie captured every emotion, you laughed, cried and at times were angry. More times than not movies do not live up to the book, this one certainly did. I enjoyed it and will definitely see it again.
I have read all the Twilight series and loved them. I wanted to keep my expectations down when the adaptation to movie came out; we all know that movies are never as good as the books. The books allow us to use our imagination with characters and the elements that make it important to us as individuals. I can honestly say that I loved the movie. I have seen it several times and each time I loved it more. I thought the cast was great. Rob and Kristen portrayed Edward and Bella perfectly, as did the entire cast. Rob especially brought his character of Edward to life so well that you felt his awkwardness and confusion as you did in the book, he was so torn between his vial instinct to kill and his love for Bella. Sure there were elements that could have been better, however overall I thought they did a good job. I think the movie as in the book is a wonderful love story that allows us to remember the awkwardness and complications of your first love.
