Movie Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

The greatest thing that can be said about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2 is that it's over. No more movies, no more books, no more Bella's dirty looks.
Once again we are subject to poor acting, and weak story lines that circle around the romantic notion of getting what you cannot have. This one is unique though, because Bella (Kristin Stewart) is no longer a human yearning for the forbidden love of Edward (Robert Pattinson.) Her newfound vampings have put her at the center of a scandal in the vampire world, which lead to a showdown over the legitimacy of her half-human half-vampire child.
That amount of riducilousness is only matched by Bella's dialogue shouted to Jacob: "Nessie!? You named my daughter after the Loch Ness Monster?"
Now lets not be competely negative. We do get a couple treats. For example, Dakota Fanning is limited to just one word of dialogue and Michael Sheen lets out a vampire cackle that will almost guarantee that I won't ever take him seriously as an actor ever again.
Truth be told, I didn't mind watching this Twilight, because I knew it would be the last. It must have tapped a nostalgiac vein in me.
Alas, I was completely disappointed with the resolution of the film. It made the blood drain from my face, as if a vamp was taking one final drink.
Glad we are done here. Best of luck to this crew of actors in finding other work that does not cast them as brooding supernatural creatures.
