3 out of 5

The final film of any series should be absolutely spot on, and here director Bill Condon pulls off an amazing visual coup that will satisfy the many millions of Twihards and possibly convert a few others. Following on from the fourth film of the series, Bella and Edward are now Mr and Mrs Cullen, and have a half human/half vampire daughter - the oddly named Renesmee. When the Volturi - ancient warlike vampires who act as judges of the vampire world - come to believe that Renesmee is an immortal child (which is forbidden by their laws), they set out to kill the entire Cullen family. Meanwhile, vampires from all over the world risk their lives to act as witnesses to Renesmee's true nature. Despite stupid CGI wolves (and baby Renesmee for that matter), dodgy red contact lenses and terrible blotchy white greasepaint, this glossy finale remains true to the world of Twilight and the eternal love story at its heart.

Plot Summary

Vampire couple Edward and Bella enjoy a happy married life with their new daughter, but the leaders of the undead race believe the child is a threat to their entire species. The protective parents gather their allies to defend the girl in a final battle with their enemies. Conclusion of the romantic fantasy series, with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Michael Sheen.
