After having been rescued by Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart) is trying to get used to her new life as a mother and a vampire… but her family is threatened by the Volturi. The fifth and final film in the Twilight series covers the last part of Stephenie Meyer’s novel and some aspects of it may confuse non-fans of her work. It is essentially more of the same, with a final confrontation with the Volturi that features a lot of decapitations (but in an odd PG-13 way) and a deliciously hammy performance by Michael Sheen. Still, a silly twist undermines the whole sequence.
