Breaking Dawn Part 2 has finally been released after all the hype that Kristen Stewart caused over the summer, announcing to the world that she had cheated on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White director Rupert Sanders (most likely to land the role in the first place. Ha). Nevertheless, that particular thing caused fans to go crazy, and of course, it made him even more gearing for people to see the final movie of the franchise… but did it live up to expectations.
It’s always a risk when adapting a book into a movie because people will always keep an eye out to what is missing, why this and that was changed, etc. Critics have been saying the movie is “okay,” which is probably not the best thing to hear when considering that this is the last movie of the Twilight franchise. It should have received “movie of the year, better than Harry Potter’s ending” kind of reviews, but it didn’t. While the critics were being stingy with their comments, here’s what some fans had to say after watching the film:
don’t know what the reviewer was watching but I bloody loved it
