Synopsis: Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard), the vampire who is trying to take vengeance for Edward (Robert Pattinson) killing her James (Cam Gigandet), begins to create an army of newborns set to destroy Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). Back in Forks, Edward and Bella discuss the consequences of becoming an immortal vampire and the idea of marrying each other. Meanwhile, as Charlie Swan (Billy Burke) explores the case of Riley Biers (Xavier Samuel), Edward infers his disappearance was caused by the newborn vampires.
Description: As Seattle is wrecked by a series of strange killings and Victoria continues her pursuit for revenge, Bella once again finds herself enclosed in danger.Review: It’s been hailed as the major film of the year and perhaps it will be. This third chapter was based on one the most inspiring book of the four in the series so it already has an excellent opening and the few realistic performances from the actors really do make this film a gigantic leap ahead of what herald it.
The storyline is quite imaginary but David Slade did a good job of turning nil into another miserable, but remarkable two hour love fest. Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen), Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) and Taylor Lautner’s (Jacob) love triangle turn out to be even more puzzling with glaring faces and gauche kisses galore. Attach to this is an army of newborn vampires set to slit the very flesh of Bella Swan’s bones per Victoria’s demand.
There is so much going on in this book, yet we are able to see the different facet of what it has to offer through David Slade’s direction. He did an excellent job of making the movie extra dramatic and less tacky compared to the previous Twilight and New Moon. Love triad between Bella, Edward and Jacob and the vengeance through Victoria’s eyes and her newborn vampires bring the book to life.
In the end, Eclipse enthuse the game on gradually. It is indeed a better film than its predecessors. The acting has improved and the pacing goes far towards keeping things interesting. Varying the directors was probably the best choice made here because the film feels much more professional and mature.The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,
