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.
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

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".Read more ›
So I sat in the cinema, like a child at Christmas. 20 minutes into the film, it occurred to me that I
wasn't feeling so excited anymore. I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong. But something was seriously missing.
The first film totally absorbed me, New Moon was gripping and romantic,but this left me feeling like I wanted more.
I agree with some of the other reviews, there didn't seem to be any chemistry between Bella and Edward, the
whole reason for the story. In the first film, you can tell they actually found each other attractive, and it was exciting to watch. I didn't get that feeling in Eclipse. I felt deflated when I left the cinema, I had built it up in my head and it didn't live up to expectations. I really hope they sort this out before making Breaking Dawn. Does Stephanie Meyer get a say in how these films are made? If I had written those books, I would expect raw sizzling passion from the actors playing my main roles.
I actually felt it oozing from Kristen and Robert that they don't like being part of the Twilight thing anymore. The first film, they had no idea what it would become, and you can tell they enjoyed making it. But this time I could FEEL that they were almost just going through the motions of playing Bella and Edward for the pay cheque and can't wait for the whole thing to be finished so that they can go back to playing roles in "Independent" films. It's not good enough and it spoilt the film for me. I loved Jacob, and he outshone the pair of them put together, and I am Team Edward all the way!!! Sort it out for Breaking Dawn PLEASE!!!!
The movie opens on a sinister note: a rainy night in Seattle, where a Forks boy, Riley, is attacked and changed by Victoria. Meanwhile, Bella and Edward are planning the future and he maintains that he will only change her if she agrees to marry him, after they are married. Jacob is still tormented by Edward's return, his feelings and the knowledge that Bella wants to become a vampire. At the same time, Charlie is alarmed by daily increasing reports of murders and disappearances in Seattle. This hasn't escaped the Cullens' notice and it soon becomes apparent that Victoria, still hell-bent on revenge, is creating an army of new-borns with which to destroy Bella and the Cullen clan.
Eclipse was a sensitive adaptation of the book- suspenseful and breathtakingly dramatic in the fight scenes, particularly where the wolves were involved (the graphics here are great). The movie wasn't too long nor did it feel rushed, there is more humour here than in full moon, which provides a counterbalance for the impending danger posed by Victoria and the Volturi. The dual romance between Bella and Edward and Bella and Jacob was also dealt with really beautifully. The scenes where Jacob keeps Bella warm in the tent the night before the fight, and when she finally admits her feelings for him, are both heart-meltingly magical. Kristen Stewart is more relaxed playing Bella now, there was less awkward restraint on her part in this movie and she's a lot more confident, despite her fragility.Read more ›
