Product Description

In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is the third film in the Twilight Saga based on Stephenie Meyer's bestselling book series. Reprising their roles are Kristen Stewart (Bella), Robert Pattinson (Edward), Taylor Lautner (Jacob), Ashley Greene (Alice), Kellan Lutz (Emmett), Nikki Reed (Rosalie), starring alongside Bryce Dallas Howard (Victoria) and newcomer Xavier Samuel (Riley).

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is directed by British filmmaker David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hard Candy) from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg.

From Amazon.co.uk

The third installment of Stephenie Meyer's blockbuster vampire series is its most action packed, both in terms of fight scenes and human-vampire-werewolf lovin'. In Eclipse, the vampiric Cullen clan and the werewolves--their sworn enemies--unite against an army of "newborn" vampires, whose remnants of human blood in their veins makes them stronger and more uncontrollable, causing a string of murders in the Seattle area. They've been created by the vengeful vampire Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard, taking over for Rachelle Lefevre), still keen on destroying human Bella (Kristen Stewart). Thus, Bella is under careful watch, and her undead love Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf best friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner) spend a lot of time arguing over who is the better man for her. (In one hilarious scene where Bella's freezing and only Jacob has the lupine body heat to warm her, he looks over at Edward and cracks, "I am hotter than you." Go Team Jacob!) But there's more at the heart of the triangle than love: Bella, against Edward's warnings, doesn't want to grow older than him and would willingly give up contact with her parents, the chance to grow old with children, and more to be turned into a bloodthirsty vampire. (Jacob's trump card is that Bella wouldn't have to give up her mortality to be with him.) But the unfolding of this love triangle is even clumsier than it was on the page; you're never really convinced Bella has romantic feelings for Jacob, even during their climactic kiss on top of the mountain. This is likely to confuse non-readers of the book series, as Stewart emotes nothing that intones there's a real competition here (clearly, she's Team Edward).

Pattinson, on the other hand, appears to have overcome his awkwardness to become a much cooler Edward; Howard, while missing Lefevre's mischief as Victoria, brings her own touch of soft-spoken manipulation; and Billy Burke, as Bella's father Charlie, continues to steal every scene he's in. The other Cullens also get far more play here, notably Rosalie (Nikki Reed), whose revealing back story is touching and tragic, and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), who trains everyone in combat and who, halfway through the movie, adopts a sudden Southern accent that he didn't have before, once it's revealed he was a Confederate soldier (on a side note, it's mentioned in the books that Jasper can calm the emotions of others, but that trait isn't used in the movie). The climactic fight scene is well staged by director David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hard Candy); the violence, while not bloody, is still more abundant and disturbing than in the previous films; and the sex, while not actually happening between anyone (yet), is certainly on everyone's mind (but Edward wants to get married first). It seems the characters, and the series, are growing up. --Ellen A. Kim

I have been putting off watching this movie for months, but I recently got sick and needed something to get my mind off my illness. I really wanted to enjoy this movie. But the same thing lost in New Moon was missing in this one. I have suspected since the last movie in the saga that the missing ingredient was the "cook" Katherine Hardwick and I'm now even more convinced that I am correct. The planets aligned when she directed that movie. The lighting, the actors, the set, the costumes, the quirky soundtrack, the make-up/hair and the performances were all brilliant. As other reviewers have written, all seemed to enjoy the whole process of making that film and the chemistry between Kristen Steward and Rob Pattison was definitely there. The kissing scene in the bedroom was one of the best first-kiss scenes ever produced. Pure brilliance. Many, many people (young and old)wanted to and put themselves in Bella's place. My reason for enjoying the first movie was that it recalled the innocence and intensity of my first love and the promise it carried. The fact that my first love looked an awful lot like Rob Pattison and was as intense as the character he portrays, made it even more fun!

But everything that MADE the Twilight movie, in my opinion, has been missing since Hardwick. Have you ever heard the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?" Well, it appears to me that the people responsible for the subsequent movies have been fixing things that should have been left alone. Why would you change a recipe that worked so well? While the last two movies have probably had much larger budgets to work with, they are to be commended for not "hollywooding" the characters and settings. However, the actors just don't appear to be into it. Stewart had to try too hard to be "Bella".

Format: DVD
Mousy Kristen Stewart, who dates outside of her species, causes a vampires vs. newbie vampires vs. werewolves war, perhaps the best scene in the movie, which lasted about two minutes. The movie is filled with numerous flashbacks, primarily to the 19th century. Unlike the Harry Potter series where the acting improves from one movie to the next, this one does not. No wait. It is not bad acting. We discover that newbie vampires are uncontrollable and emotional. Vampires that are uncontrollable must be destroyed, so only unemotional vampires, who simply appear to be bad actors survive. They in turn like the aroma of infrequent bathers and wig wearers who are also bad actors, i.e unemotional. So that explains it. They are supposed to be unemotional. Why the werewolves, who look like an underage male revue sucked, I don't know.

The most painful scenes are the one on one dialouge scenes. Here their "unemotional" ability comes out. Unfortunately this consists of too much of the movie as I kept yelling at the screen, "Get on with it!" Besides Edward's glitter, what is also unnatural is Kristen's hairline. I kept waiting for her fake hair to fall off. Young females will certainly rate this as 5 stars as the whole unnatural world is fighting over one of them, one that lacks a great body, personality, or hygiene. (Just a joke about the hygiene as everything unnatural keeps sniffing her scent.)

Kristen wants to be a vampire. Edward doesn't want her to be one. Edward wants to get married. Kristen doesn't. She wants to have sex, but Edward doesn't want to have sex out of marriage. (Guess the compromise coming in the next movie?) Dad doesn't want Kristen to date a vampire, but would rather she go out with a werewolf. The movie saga has become overly hokey.

This is the third Twilight movie I have tried to watch, and I just can't. I am seriously disturbed that this kind of inane garbage is what 90% of people seem to enjoy. Aldous Huxley's fears of society becoming so trivial that life was meaningless are actually realised in this absolute garbage.

I have given this a fair chance, believing that surely the fact that it is so popular with most people must mean that it has some redeeming features, but no. Apparently people are morons. The plot is beyobd horrific. It actually makes me feel physically ill. It is like fanfiction written by a 12 year old girl about having the two most popular boys at high school fighting over plain-Jane.

Despite necking a bottle of wine prior to watching, I was forced to admit defeat during the scene where topless Jacob has to keep Bella warm in a blizzard in a tend up a mountain while Edward watches. (She is of course absolutely fine wondering about in her shirt-sleeves in the snow the following day, but would have apparently died of hypothermia if Jacob hadn't been able to rub his abs on her (he is topless again, for the 8 millionth time this movie. I swear it must be in his contract)). I have never seen such a ridiculously contrived plot. The way the interesting elements of the plot (vampires vs. werewolves, hello!) is sacrificed to contorting the plot so that it reaches this kind of bizarre 12-year old girl's fantasy is quite impressive.

I salute anyone who makes it through this. I couldn't, and this is my third attempt.
