IT ALL BEGINS… WITH A CHOICE.
As Bella (Kristen Stewart) tries to choose between the vampire and the werewolf (Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner), Seattle is plagued by a series of killings. The 30 Days of Night (2007) director was picked for the third chapter of the Twilight saga, which garnered a few positive reviews… but all I can see is a good filmmaker try to fit into a formula set two movies ago. David Slade plays a minor part; what matters is the cast, the visual effects and the moody atmosphere. If only the drama between the three leads would rise above its annoying high school level.
