The moment many crazed Twilight fans have been watching for – the third movie in the Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, opens in theaters nationwide Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
This third installment features the same stars as the two previous. Kristen Stewart plays Isabella “Bella” Swan, Robert Pattinson plays Edward Cullen and Taylor Lautner plays Jacob Black.
Reviews of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are torn, making it hard to determine what an overall review of this movie might be.
“The kiss of the vampire is cooler, the werewolf is hotter, the battles are bigger and the choices are, as everyone with a pulse (and a few without) knows by now, life-changing.” -Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
“More happens in Eclipse than in the previous Twilight zone, New Moon, and yet it’s duller.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
“What elevates Eclipse above the previous Twilight films is that it doesn’t take itself so seriously, and Slade doesn’t allow his stars to.” -Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
“Eclipse suffers from an excess of characters and dialogue and a shortage of real plot changes, even with Hard Candy’s sharp-eyed David Slade at the helm.” -Peter Howell, Toronto Star
“The teen vampire series finally hits its stride with an entertaining mix of romance and action fantasy.” – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
“The stars remain a boring threesome, Stewart limping through supposedly impassioned speeches as though Bella already were one of the cold-blooded undead.” -David Germain, Associated Press
