Whilst not a Twi-hard I must admit that I enjoyed the initial 3 films in the Twilight series, but the last 2 films have been a disappointment in comparison.
Breaking Yawn Part 1 was absolutely woeful, it was like watching a relations tedious wedding and honeymoon video that went on far too long, by the time the story kicked in you'd lost any interest.
Breaking Dawn Part 2 is an improvement on the previous film but in my opinion provided a luke warm ending to the saga, the film seemed to be building up to a great ending but then fizzled out and fell flatter than an undercooked souffle.
Some CGI effects looked outdated especially in the early scenes of the movie, the scene where Edward and Bella are running and leaping through the forest looked so fake that you weren't even sure if the actors were computer generated.
Also, the face of baby Renesmee looked really weird. It looked like that creepy looking CGI kid off the bog roll adverts.
Some of the acting was a bit one dimensional, one facial expression throughout the whole movie just doesn't work. The script was OK on the whole apart from one or two clunkers, such as Edward muttering "We're the same temperature now" this particular line drew laughter at the screening I attended.
On the plus side I liked how some humour had been added into the story, this was severly lacking in the last installment. Also, I thought Michael Sheen was superb in his role as Aro. Whilst he was funny there was also that air of danger about him too.
The splitting of the Breaking Dawn movies has merely appeared to be a cash cow for milking Twi-hards for their money when the saga would have been better served with a single film running at about 2.5 to 3 hours.
Mediocre finale for Stephenie Meyer's gothic love story.
