This is a film that tries to build its own world and find its own style. Shoddy CGI aside, the film does not look too bad; but a convoluted plot, and story-telling which keeps too many things in the dark, hurt this film.

The second half of the Breaking Dawn story concludes the 5-film run of the Twilight franchise.

Seemingly unguided by the director, and saddled with lines that do not work on screen, the cast stumble through this film in search of a common tone, but fail. […]
