Eclipse (Twilight)

With fast pacing, great action scenes and a whole lot less Bella (Kristen Stewart) moping, Eclipse out sparkles Twilight and New Moon. In the prior movies there were huge scenes that lagged and lingered too long. Director David Slade tightly condenses a long book into a good combination of love, action, and vampire becoming scenes.

Humor is a strong element and the characters seem more realistic for it. I laughed out loud when Edward (Robert Pattinson) stated “Does he own a shirt” when six pack Jacob (Taylor Lautner) arrived to protect precious Bella. Bella’s dad Charlie Swan (Billy Burke) delivers great lines and shows what strength he brings to this movie saga.

In the book the Cullen vampire family are really strong characters and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) and Rosalie (Nikki Reed) give very good performances in the movie. The costume people finally got their act together in the hair-wig department and vampire make-up was a bit better. The Edward Bella Jacob love triangle has a great moment in the tent before the “Big Fight”.

The action scenes star in Eclipse. They move the story line in a quick effective manner. The newborn vampire scenes were vivid and wicked Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) comes across as pure evil.

Eclipse is a must see for the Twilight fans and it offers others a summer escape from reality.
