This film has divided fans, I think, as to whether they preferred Twilight, directed by Catherine Hardwicke, or prefer Chris Weitz on board as a new director. Personally, I think Twilight was better and wished they had kept the same director.

There are lots of things to enjoy in this movie. Kristen Stewart is on top form and is growing into a fine actress; Taylor surprised me as a very good Jacob; and Pattinson, of course, is as gorgeous and charismatic as ever (except for his clothes, perhaps - he is dressed like a fusty college prof at times, so I am convinced whoever designed his wardrobe was on Team Jacob! I much preferred his black T-shirts and James Deans jeans in Twilight). Also, if you are fan of the books you will be pleased as it is more loyal to the book 'New Moon' on a scene by scene basis. The soundtrack is good and there are some great scenes, such as the magical underwater scene, and the action scenes in Italy at the end.

However, I think Hardwicke did a better job at capturing the aching, love-lust crazed nature of Bella & Edward's love affair. I disagree with reviewers who say Bella is selfish or pathetic for moping about after Edward goes - the whole point of their love is that, like a modern day Romeo and Juliet, it's all-consuming and they can't live without each other. I liked the intense idealism of their love for each other and I feel it's the breathing heart of the books. That said, in Twilight, every scene between Bella/Edward was so mesmerising - the music and direction and camera angles all sought to squeeze out every drop of the sizzling magic between them. I don't think I've ever seen such amazing on-screen chemistry and I didn't feel the scenes in this film were as strong.

The first Twilight film was something of a surprise; not as bad as I feared it would be because I actually found myself enjoying both the story and the films style so I was kind of looking forward to New Moon. The misty look of Twilight for me was perfect; it gave it the feel of something from a dream and something that you didn't need to take too seriously, there was a sense of fun, the soundtrack was incredible and I thought the cast was very good with some threat elements that offered more than just a love story. Twilight was open to those with an open mind to begin with but I think New Moon in part suffers from a departure from many elements of Twilight. Those who have read the material, like myself, will enjoy a faithful adaptation that does have some fair moments that lift it but for everyone else you may be wondering what all the fuss is about especially if you sort of liked the first one.

First is that the picture loses the mist and has a more colourful picture which for me doesn't do the Cullen's any favours who now look more abnormal than they did previously; abnormal in the sense that surely someone would notice just how odd they are. Second is that most of the humour and fun factor is lost due to the nature of the story. Yes Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner enjoy good moments together but at the heart of it we're talking about a character who is hopelessly depressed throughout which isn't an easy thing to sit through especially since for most of the film not much happens. I didn't mind some of it but for me it went on for far too long. Third is that the special effects are very weak and obvious at times which I consider to be unacceptable, the Wolves in particular suffer although are not a complete write off.

Bella Swan, a regular 17 year old is in love with Edward Cullen, a 17 year old vampire, who has been around for over a hundred years, she is desperate to become immortal but Edward refuses to change her.

On the occasion of her 18th Birthday Bella reluctantly attended a party arranged for her by Edwards adopted sister Alice at the Cullen's residence. Bella did not want to celebrate the occasion as she felt that she was growing older than Edward everyday but the charming Alice could be very persistent. Everything went well until Bella suffered a small paper-cut. The smell of human blood was too much for Jasper (Alice's partner) and Edward immediately perceived the danger. In the ensuing struggle Bella ended up even more badly hurt and the party was over.

Edward was so traumatised by the incident that he felt Bella would be safer if she never saw him again. For months Bella lived in a state of anguish, she withdrew from life and caused her father Charlie great concern. Eventually she turned to her old friend Jacob for support. Jacob was delighted to help and to have Bellas company as he was obviously very much in love with her. Bella benefited from Jacobs company and gradually started to live her life again. Suddenly Jacob stopped taking her calls. Eventually Bella works out her best friend's new secret and once again her life becomes entwined in the bizarre world of the supernatural.

Kristen Stewart again portrayed Bella but I found her performance weak and lacked depth. Robert Pattinson delivers a charming performance as Edward Cullen. His English public school background allows him to carry off the character that is slightly old fashioned perfectly.
