Not the epic disaster I expected, for what that’s worth.
Standard biopic elevated by performances.
Over-faithful adaptation will please fans of the books but few others.
All in good fun.
A new director elevates the franchise.
Weaknesses in screenplay and direction stymie success of third movie in Twilight Saga, but stunning visuals, well-choreographed action, and a renewed focus on the Cullens elevate it.
Likable, funny action-comedy provides an escapist diversion.
