Little less dull than the first, but still nonsensical
on 29 September 2010
Bella nearly gets attacked by the vampire in the Cullen family (the one who looks like he was sucking a lemon throughtout the last film) because Bella cuts her finger, oddly this scene is followed by the most intimate scene in the whole of the two films between Bella and Carlisle (who i think is a dish) when he tends to her finger, oddly there is real chemistry here very good acting. So Edward leaves Bella, surprise surprise. Not completely though because annoyingly he keeps appearing to her in spirit when she acts recklessy, woo go Bella. Yep Edward loves Bella so much he's left her to the remaining vampire who's out for vengance what a nice loving chap he is. Lucky, Jacob's around and he is much more fun than Edward. In fact Jacob has more fun in his little finger nail than Edward has in his whole body and we can all breath be it a small sigh of relief from the teenage angst of gloom. Bella, being a bit slow, comes to learn that Jacob is a werewolf! yeah she'll pass her A levels if its the last thing she does be it she maybe 90 and a bit wrinkly by then unless Edward takes a bite. Jacob and his friends, again like the vampires does not fit sterotype. They don't have to wait for a full moon to change, changing any time they like. The actor who plays Jacob is a far superior actor to Robert and i see a lot of promise here. The the story looses the plot a bit as they bring in the storyline of the head vampires, and Edward fearing Bella dead goes of to ask to die, (his such a merry soul this one). Bella comes to the rescue though rebuffing Jacob (in a thanks very much now but my boyfriends back see ya) and prevents him from commiting a cardinal sin of walking out in daylight infront of people and revealing who he really is, someone who sparkles more on the outside than in! Then comes a fight between Edward protecting Bella, but they learn that Bella is to become a vampire someday through Whatsherfaces visions. Now comes the continuity problem. Earlier in the film, Suckalemonface uses his powers on Bella to convince her to come to the get together they are having for her birthday, but here the lead vampires are now saying that Bella is special because no one can use their powers on her? Anyway, alls well in paradise again, Bella goes home with Edward, and Edward and Jacob have a sulky stand off, but of course Bella chooses the dullard Edward because he's more her type Jacob's too much excitement for one chapter for Bella she might actually start to warm up a little and thats not cool with vampires!
