Although this movie did not live up to the original novel (but could any movie?), it was a good movie in it's own right. It had a killer soundtrack, great teen angst, and good action sequences.
I didn't like how some of the dialogue seemed stilted, some beloved characters and scenes were abbrievated and chopped, and although Robert Pattison is good . . . I don't think anyone could live up to the Edward in the original novel!
For those of you who have been hiding under a rock, Twilight is the story of Bella, a 17-year old girl who has moved from sunny Arizona to a very rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father. Besides the inevitable feeling of not fitting in, Bella meets a mysterious teenage boy named Edward who takes a seemingly instant dislike to her. Bella tries to figure out the mystery of Edward and finds out more than she bargained for. The movie is a tale of teen angst, great love, and adventure.
I highly recommend the novel, and the movie is good too. I can't wait for the movie of New Moon!
