2.0 out of 5 stars Is it Dawn Yet ?, 17 Jan 2012
This review is from: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I've read all the books and seen all the films and I have to say I'm a fan of the series as a whole ,especially the Eclipse book and the Twilight movie - magical ! This however, was like watching a dreary episode of Vampire Diaries without as much story - tedious to the extreme and I can't believe it took them a whole year to come up with this that would barely be passable as a run of the mill episode in a 24 week tv season soap run. Jasper & Emmet sure get their money easily - I think they have 17 words between them in the entire movie.
The only real excitement are those parts which do not follow the book at all and are totally invented by the film screenwriter - the Wolves attacking The Vampires which never actually happens in the book despite being htreatened. The final montage scene is very well done , echoes of Bella's gymnasium scene in part 1 when Edward is sucking the vampire venom out of her and her life flashes before her.
The rest is absolutely forgettable and it's difficult to see what is actually happening in between the musical intelrudes (overdone) and scenic shots. Do we really need to see Jacob walking up all 3 flights of stairs in The Cullen House or watch Bella staring at herself in front of the mirror for 90 seconds while Edward deals with the nosey Brazilian maid ? .
In a disappointing detour from previous blu-ray releases. the extra content is barely visible. There is a tv cut from the film's premiere in Leicester Square and your usual bog standard "Making Of" documentary as well as a put together of clips from The Wedding and that's it.
Gone are the Music Videos, Director's Extended & Deleted Scenes and Interviews with the cast and the annual visit to comic-Con. None of them were included in this disappointing blu-ray release whereas they had been in previous blu-rays of the twilight series.
