The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Movie Rating: Gaby Tscharner

Bella still hopes she can hold her life together, but events threaten to destroy everything.

The big moment has finally come for Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson). In a romantic forest ceremony, the vampire and the human bride say “I do”. But the party is broken up by Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who is worried about Bella. The couple goes to Brazil for their honeymoon, where their union is finally consummated. But happiness is fleeting: Bella gets pregnant and it soon becomes clear that her condition is life threatening to both her and her unborn baby - who's already been placed on a hit list.

Breaking Dawn - Part 1 combines two of the three chapters of the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. The movie includes all the highlights fans have been anticipating for so long. But aside from Bella's romantic wedding dress, which was designed by Carolina Herrera, the movie doesn't live up to its promises. Twi-hards won't care - they'll be lining up on the opening weekend to see it, probably more than once.
