I like Vampire movies!
Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a bit different, never caring about or fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother Renee (Sarah Clarke) remarries and decides to move with her new husband to Florida, and Bella decides to go live with her father, Charlie (Billy Burke), in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn't expect anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she's ever met. Intelligent and witty, his piercing eyes see straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than any cheetah, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Most importantly, he's a vampire. Like all vampires, he's immortal. He doesn't drink human blood (they're vampire "vegetarians"), which is rare among the vampire population. Instead, they go on regular "hiking" trips, where they feed on prey such as grizzly bears and mountain lions. For Edward, Bella is the thing he has waited ninety years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. And what will they do when James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi), and Victoria (Rachel Lefevre) come into town and James sets his sights on Bella? Will true love prevail when Edward is forced to save her life and conquer his thirst? The true question is, When you can live forever, what do you live for?
Storyline: 4 Stars
The Story is surprisingly gripping with a homey western backdrop... taking a slow story-telling technique speeding up at important parts...
It's a relatively long movie... but that didn't seem to bother the audience at all...
So good work Director Catherine Hardwicke!
There are to be a couple sequels to be created in the future years... and I must say that I'm certainly looking forward to them! There's just one problem... they have taken Catherine Hardwicke off the directors chair, and put Chris Weitz on there instead (director of Golden Compass); he single-handedly destroyed New Line. But too early to see, Weitz may still come up with the goods on these movies...
Graphics: 3 Stars
The graphics aren't overboard, just enough for what the movie needs. There's some excellent camera shots though! Absolutely beautiful!
Acting: 3 Stars
Acting was relatively good The actor for Edward was extremely popular, and I personally liked the actress for Bella, though slightly plain and inanimate.
I certainly really enjoyed this movie.. and certainly promises much for the sequels. Beautiful scenery and a great story, now I've got a bit of a craving for Human Blood!
