MOVIE REVIEW: "BREAKING DAWN PART 2"

Lastly, the final episode of the books-turned-into-movies was here. The male vampire who married a human then turned into a female vampire had a baby now named Renesme. However, the baby was half human, half vampire so she was not immortal.

Nevertheless, this one nosy vampire by the name of Irina reported to the vampires of superior ranks - the most powerful one should be Volutri. Being afraid of the power possessed by the immortal baby, they decided to kill Renesme.

In order to stop the evil deed from the evil vampires, the good vampires had to find witness from all over the world to convince Volutri that Renesme would not pose  a danger to the vampire community. Volutri nevertheless would not stop his plan of killing the precious child, hence the most brutal war between the vampires started, and you could see vampires (and werewolves) with all the supernatural powers that they had, pulling each other heads and bodies apart.

Many died in the fight and the audience must have thought that it would be a messy and bloody ending to the Twilight saga, it was actually an image flashed by Alice into Volutri's head as a warning what would happen if he went on with his plan. (Alice had to power to see what was going to happen in the future).

All in all, it was a happy ending and everybody went out of the cinema feeling happy and contented after watching the most violent fighting scene on screen.


It was a great movie and I feel like going to watch it one more time. And I have to get the other three books too. I have only read the first one.

the appearance of two extra vampires
And it has a very beautiful theme song too by Christina Perry. I wonder the song was written specifically for the movie, or is it a coincidence.



One Thousand Years
Christina Perry

Heart beats fast 
Colors and promises 
How to be brave?
How can I love 
when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone? 
All of my doubt 
suddenly goes away somehow 
One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years 
I'll love you for a thousand more 

Time stands still 
Beauty in all she is 
I will be brave 
I will not let anything take away 
What's standing in front of me 
Every breath 
Every hour has come to this 
One step closer 

[Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you 
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years 
I'll love you for a thousand more 
And all along I believed I would find you 
Time has brought your heart to me 
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more 
One step closer One step closer 

Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you 
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you 
For a thousand years 
I'll love you for a thousand more 
And all along I believed I would find you 
Time has brought your heart to me 
I have loved you for a thousand years 
I'll love you for a thousand more
