The day has finally arrived. After an entire year without Edward Cullen on the big screen, Twilight fans’ prayers have been answered.
New Moon has all the recognizable scenes from the book, but seeing it on the big screen gives audience members one thing Stephenie Meyer didn’t write: screams of delight! Yep, absolute screams of delight at the first glimpse of Taylor Lautner’s shirtless abs.
Watch out Edward, seeing Jacob Black with his newly buff body was more than the ladies in the audience could handle!
Kristen Stewart’s much-talked about heartbreak scenes were not as powerful as expected. If you were left by the perfection who is Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen, the angst should be a little more palpable. However, Stewart did shine during the intense nightmare scenes.
While Stewart’s spunky Bella delivers, it’s Ashley Greene as Alice who lights up the film. With her cute coif (and darling scarf and glasses in Italy), Alice is a breath of fresh air in the gloomy film.
As expected, the one thing we missed in the movie was substantial Edward and Bella time. Still, a gorgeous (and shirtless) Pattinson in Italy and their few brief embraces and kisses filled in some of the gap near the end.
We are already counting down to next summer’s release of Eclipse!
