I gotta say, the movie didn't suck. Everything was a degree (or two) better. The actors, the special effects, the adaptation, and did I mention the acting? I can honestly say these were the best parts of the movie.
The special effects were wow. The wolves looked awesome and BIG. I always kind of imagined the Underworld werewolves but this ones will do the trick. Not only the wolves, but I like how they illustrated Edward when she is hearing things. And the fighting sequence near the end. Oh but I gotta say, I still laughed when the vampires started to "sparkle". That's always going to be funny to me.
I say they did a decent job of adapting the book into the movie too. I mean, I could understand the whole story, didn't really care for anything that they might have changed... scratch that, I do care about ONE thing they changed. But Ill get to that later.
Now, the acting. On the first movie was... horrible. On this movie? I likes it. I can finally say Bella is not a zombie. Edward is still the same, though I feel more emotion from him. Mr.Abs was awesome. Oh, Mr.Abs is my nickname for Jacob. The minute he took off his shirt... I think all the women in the theater were short of breath. The things Hollywood pays you to do uh?
Now to the cons. When you watch this movie you can get a clear and shocking picture of how desperate Bella is. The depression, stupid self sacrificing, the break down... If you didn't get it that much on the book (or were too into the romance to notice the bad side of the story) you will get it on the book. That is not a good message, woman should not break down and isolate themselves after they have lost a man. But it is fiction so.
And finally, the major CON... The ending. Goodness I hated it. Why did they have to do THAT like THAT? It just wasn't right in ANY way. I don't understand how could they. People are still going to watch the third movie if they had finished with another ending. They could have played it better.
All in all, it did not suck. Is worth the wait, and is worth your money.
PS; Something that might have helped was that I was in a free-twilight-maniac environment. It was like watching every other first day release movie.Crowded, but not crazy.
