This is not my favourite film in the series, but it's still pretty good. It dragged just a tiny amount at parts but was still entertaining.

Breaking Dawn Part 1 is about Bella and Edward finally tying the knot. They get married and head to a surprise honeymoon spot. They realize that Bella is pregnant and head back home to figure out what to do. Quickly Bella is dying and Edward can’t get her to agree in getting rid of this “thing” so this nightmare can end. The wolves want to get rid of it, even if that means killing Bella. Of course Jacob can’t let that happen so he teams up with the vampires to protect her. This movie has captured the hearts of millions of Twihards. We all love seeing that strong romance between a vampire and a teenage girl. They’ve gone through so much and we feel like we owe it to them to go along with them for the ride. The love triangle between the main characters is still as strong as ever and that’s what makes us feel for the best friend of Bella. I love the Twilight series because they’re so captivating. The impossible is possible. Mortals have a fascination with the super natural; I think that’s why we have so many books and movies that revolve around them. We all want to be in a relationship like Edward and Bella. Have that “I can’t, won’t live without you” feeling. We all want to find our other half and this movie shows us what its like when we finally do. The actors in this movie portray the characters very well and I think that’s what makes the movie so good. They’ve learned to capture the essence of each one of them.

Dull and boring.

Pretty decent. I enjoyed the conflict. Bit slow here and there but overall picked up in the end. Apparently there are a lot of missing pieces the movie didn't cover, but that happens with most movie adaptions. The ending was intense.

The Twilight series will always have its fans, but I'm not one of them. Pros: 1. it is refreshing (if disconcerting) to see Kristen Stewart's Bella with a smile on her face for a change. 2. The wedding scenes are very pretty. Cons: Really, what sane woman would choose Edward over Jacob? I had to switch the movie off before it really started. Pretty awful.
