New Moon, a Mr. E Movie Review
(Run time: 130 min. – Directed by: Chris Weitz – Starring: Kristen Stewart, Christina Jastrzembska, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner.)
Blood thirsty fans have been salivating for it, the press over covering it, and now it’s arrived for the whole world to consume, it’s the action-fantasy New Moon. This next installment in the Twilight series has all the original players, a few new ones, but doesn’t necessarily seem to deliver all it had promised.
After Bella’s last encounter with a blood thirsty vampire she’s found true love in Edward. But after the wrapping paper on a birthday gift causes her an almost deadly paper cut Edward and the Cullen clan decide they need to move away before real harm comes her way.
Bella is crushed as her dream guy disappears.
Thankfully for Bella her longtime friend Jacob Black is there to comfort her, but only for so long. Bella discovers that she can see images of Edward when she puts herself in danger. She begins to try riskier and riskier stunts. Then, to top it off she finds out that her buddy Jacob is really a werewolf and now she’s has new enemies to worry about. She learns the truth about the Quileutes and the Cullens and realizes she’s probably not as safe as she was suppose to be.
The story honestly drug on a little too long and the absence of Edward for most of the movie made for a rough 45 minutes to an hour.
Kristen Stewart did a good job reprising her role as the beloved Bella and when Robert Pattinson was finally on screen he did a pretty good job being everybody’s favorite vampire.
Unfortunately, the acting Taylor Lautner turned in was less than expected. What lacks in acting he tries to make up for with his new “bulk”. That might be good enough for the uber-fans but not for keen movie goers.
So vampire and werewolf fans line up and checkout New Moon. (Because we all know your going to anyway.) While the rest of you move on to bigger and better things and wait for this one to hit on DVD.
(That’ll probably be the best bet to save more than your neck from feeling like it’s been inappropriately bit.)
