FOREVER IS ONLY THE BEGINNING.
After finally walking down the aisle, Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson) go on a honeymoon that is abruptly interrupted when she falls critically ill… The fourth part of the Twilight franchise takes the romance to a more mature level, but still remains simplistic and dreamy enough to keep its fan base happy. Covering only the first half of Stephenie Meyer’s book, the movie pretty much achieves what it sets out to do. Gorgeously shot by Guillermo Navarro, but it’s a shame that the brilliant Bill Condon has such mediocre material to work with.
