We’re so pumped for the fourth ‘Twilight’ installment, but the press couldn’t wait to tear it apart — are they being too mean?
Breaking Dawn is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, but critics are not taking kindly to it after the first screenings!
Variety showed no love for what they considered to be a poor take on rich source material, writing, “All the more disappointing, then, that a story so pregnant with dramatic possibilities should wind up feeling like such an unconsummated opportunity.”
The Hollywood Reporter says the film is quite boring, noting that, “What you’re left with is to gaze at the three leads, all of whom have their constituencies and reasons for being eminently watchable. The only hope is they’ll have more to do next time around.”
Worst off, Screen International writes that the leads are dull, saying, “The performances in Breaking Dawn are largely soapy and melodramatic, especially from [Taylor] Lautner and to a lesser degree Pattinson.”
What do you think HollywoodLifers — are the critics being honest or do they have an agenda against the movie?
