Synopsis: Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) was not expecting anything out of the ordinary to happen when she moved to live with her Dad in Forks, Washington. But this where her life truly begins. There she meets Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a mysterious and captivating student at her new high school. Bella soon discovers that Edward is hiding a secret, after he impossibly saves her life from a van with his super-human strength and speed. She is determined to unravel his secret, but the truth is more terrifying than she realized. Edward is a vampire. Any normal person would just keep away from him, but Edward and Bella have fallen passionately and unconditionally in love with each other. And so begins their forbidden relationship between a human and a vampire. But the young lovers soon discover that their troubles are only just about to begin.
Pros: Its nice to see a movie and compare it to the book. Its never as good as the book, however it was nice seeing how a girl (Bella) becomes completely obsessed with a guy. Its a real world problem.
Cons: Bella was washed out compared to Edward the vampire. Kirsten Stewart can use way more facial expressions.
Rating: 2.5/5 stars. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you’ve read the book. Its not the greatest movie but its cute for an adaption of a book.
