A few issues I have first off: the vampires in this film are "vegetarian"; meaning they only eat animals, not people and apparently they also look like fancy bling bling when exposed to sunlight. They can move faster than a speeding bullet, they are more powerful than a locomotive and are able to leap tall buildings (trees) in a single bound....hmmm
Anyways, Twilight is directed by Catherine Hardwicke for whom this film should have been a sinch. Her first film Thirteen was an amazing look into the world of teen angst and more specifically teen girls, with Twilight we are presented with lingering stares, laconic pacing and some of the most uninteresting dialog put to screen, I can only assume it was the material she was given to work with although she has been kicked off of directing duties for the inevitable sequels.
Well, It should come as no surprise that I did not overly enjoy Twilight, it was certainly not the worst film I have ever seen, but I won't be rushing out to watch any of the sequels. Suffice to say I am sure the audience to which these films are being marketed can't wait!
