Employing a bigger budget, better effects and an edgier director ("Hard Candy's" David Slade), Eclipse focuses on what works -- the stars.

If there is a bit more humor on display here -- some of it evidence that an element of self-conscious self-mockery is sneaking into the franchise -- there is also more violence, and, true to the film’s title, a deeper intimation of darkness. What there isn’t, as usual, is much in the way of good acting, with the decisive and impressive exception of Ms. Stewart, who can carry a close-up about as well as anyone in movies today.

For now, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is just one more walk on the mild sides for tweens who dream of being penetrated by cold flesh that will keep them young and cute forever.

The movie contains violence and death, but not really very much. For most of its languorous running time, it listens to conversations between Bella and Edward, Bella and David, Edward and David, and Edward and Bella and David. This would play better if any of them were clever conversationalists, but their ideas are limited to simplistic renderings of their desires.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is back with all of the lethal and loving bite it was meant to have: The kiss of the vampire is cooler, the werewolf is hotter, the battles are bigger and the choices are, as everyone with a pulse (and a few without) knows by now, life-changing.

It took three films, but The Twilight Saga finally nails just the right tone in Eclipse, a film that neatly balances the teenage operatic passions from Stephenie Meyer's novels with the movies' supernatural trappings.

By far the best Twilight film to date, Slade should satisfy the fan base while opening up the series to more sceptical viewers…

Finally I Luv it!!!!

Best one yet yay. Way better than New Moon. David Slade did a wonderful job getting all the main bits in and especially keeping to the book. Heaps of action, Jaspers and Rosalie background had to be in there, along with the rest of the wolves awesome, can't wait for Breaking Dawn yeeha. Twilight fans won't be disappointed. Twilight mania is back yay,...

Fantastic!

Having seen it at the first screening (midnight) I thought the movie was so worth it! Definitely the best of the three and it was great that it had a lot of the exact lines from the book. It was hilarious! Can't wait to see it again!!! Love it!!!!!!!!

Haters Gonna Hate.

It looked really rushed. A lot of the shots were out of focus, the special effects seemed rushed, it's definitely not going to be remembered for it's cinematography. It's like Shortland/Coro Street with Vampires made of crystal. It's not a bas film. It's just padded with SO much dialogue. It's edited together with random cutaways to the Red Eyed...
