'Dawn' After-Party
We take you inside the bash!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I premieres tomorrow, November 18, and Twi-hards are shaking with anticipation over the chance to see Edward Cullen and Bella Swan finally tie the knot! Reviews of the film are out, and experts are weighing in – will Breaking Dawn be the success we all hope it will be?

The reviews seem mixed with Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer giving the film a 24%, while the audience gave it an 89%.

Some of the Dawn reviews read:

“The latest and best of the movies about a girl, her vampire and their impossible, ridiculously appealing – yes, I surrendered – love story.” – Manohla DargisNew York Times

“Anyone not obsessed with hair, makeup and lingerie may find the half-hour wedding sequence a near-death experience.” – Daily Mail

“Even the fans in the audience at the preview I attended laughed at the wooden acting and flat line readings, especially by Lautner.” – Boston Herald

“It truly feels that 40 minutes or so, not two hours, would have been plenty to convey all that’s necessary in the material covered.” – The Hollywood Reporter.

People has a much less harsh take on the film, stating that Breaking Dawn will please fans of the franchise, as it’s “a breathless, faithful portrayal of so much they’ve waited to see.” 

“It still has that awkward dialogue and it seems like the story often contradicts itself, but these are things you just have to accept and overlook if you are going to enjoy it. You take them for what they are, not what they could be.” – Examiner.com

“To outsiders, in fact, Breaking Dawn: Part I will probably look like the weirdest, most expensive chastity commercial ever created. But Meyer’s massive fan base will see something else entirely. They’ll see a faithful, well-made depiction of the most eventful book in a beloved series (or, at least, the first half; the second half arrives in 2012). They’ll see the actors they adore embodying characters they cherish.” – New York Daily News

“Despite these scientific conundrums, Breaking Dawn – Part 1 is absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and has without doubt the most blood-curdling scene of live childbirth in a PG-13 movie.” – Roger Ebert

Breaking Dawn — Part 1, this perpetually sad/sullen/wincing young woman — played as if every scene gives her cramps by the otherwise interesting Kristen Stewart — is a big drip.” – Entertainment Weekly
