'Breaking Dawn': All Bark, Little Bite

The fourth part of “The Twilight Saga” features the most anticipated wedding since at least Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.


at 4421 Cinema Drive in Acworth offers a Dinner & A Movie package, which includes two movie passes and a $25 gift certificate, all just for $39. is one of the participating restaurants, and you can redeem the certificate there.


It has been three years since the first Twilight movie, and the wait is finally over: Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) tie the knot at last in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1.

The film is the fourth in a supernatural soap opera franchise that has raked in nearly $2 billion worldwide. Here is all you need to know to jump into the series: Vampire Edward Cullen and virginal human Bella Swan are getting married, and their werewolf friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) is not very happy about it.

There are no spoilers here. Your teenage daughter can tell you exactly what happens. Edward and Bella get married. Two weeks later she gets pregnant. After almost dying, she gives birth.

Parents, don't worry; there is nothing to see in the honeymoon sequence. The birth scene, however, pushes the PG-13 rating to the edge.

That being said, teenage girls all over the country should squeal with delight.

It may come as a shock, but I am not a big Twilight fan. The dialogue is laughable, and the two-hour movie could have been 30 minutes. For the Twilight faithful, the “Twi-hards,” however, this is all cinema magic, culminating a year from now in Breaking Dawn—Part 2.

The flick-o-meter gives Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 three out of five.

I agree with this rating I love Twilight so does my teen daughter but I have to admit I was a little disappointed in this one not enough of the action too much storybook tales in this one. Rest assure part 2 holds everything Twilight is and fans will be happy again TRUST ME sincerely A TRUE TWILIGHT FAN.!!!!

Went and watched it with my husband. It was entertaining enough, seemed to go by quickly. You kind of kept waiting for something really big to happen but it never really did. It ended and your waiting for the "whats next" moment but that was the end of the film. So it leaves you with pondering thoughts which is good. It was good but after all the hype not as great as I had thought it would be. I am not normally one to buy into the hype but I went backwards with this one and did. Advice: go in expecting nothing and you will come out feeling good about it. If you go in expecting greatness, you might be a little disappointed.

I totally loved the movie. It did a good job in mixing the first two parts of the book together. It definately leaves you anxiously awaiting for Part 2. Absolutely LOVE it.

Can't wait to see this one! I really hope it's better than a 3 out of 5.
