The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (12A) - film review
By Emily Cook at Haverhill Cineworld on Saturday, 17th July 2010.
In the state of Washington, not far from the capital Seattle, lies a small rural town, Forks, where the third chapter of the Twilight saga, Eclipse, continues.
Centred around a conflict between the Newbloods, whose instructions are to eliminate the Cullen family, which forces a fractured alliance to be negotiated between the Cullens and their sworn enemy, the werewolves.
With this alliance, yet another conflict ensues between Edward Cullen (vampire) and Jacob Black (werewolf) for the heart of Bella Swan, who herself has an important decision to make, stay mortal or become immortal?
The film itself is true to the book, with director David Slade encouraging strong and believable performances from his leading actors, Kristen Stewart (Bella), Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black).
I give this film four stars because although not as absorbing as the previous two, due to its length (two-and-a-half hours), it still managed to deliver a cascade of emotions - love, friendship and sorrow, all of which we will experience one way or another as we go through life itself.
