Our Score
There's more teen angst with a twist in this lively third instalment of the hit Twilight series, and the pressure is mounting on moody Bella (Kristen Stewart) to make a fangs-or-fur choice between vampire boyfriend Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner). But as pallid Edward and six-packed Jacob come close to blows, their respective clans find themselves forced to forge a truce to fight a common foe - an army of vicious vampire "newborns" led by an old enemy. To the unbiased and non-teenage eye, Eclipse's many romantic interludes could seem slushy and repetitive, while the action sequences, though decent when they arrive, are a long time getting there. But British director David Slade (30 Days of Night) balances the blend of action and romance far better than the directors of the two previous movies. And although Eclipse remains primarily for dedicated Twilight fans (so-called "Twihards"), it's still easily accessible to series newcomers.


Bella Swan's confused feelings for vampire Edward and werewolf Jacob threaten to ignite a conflict between the two supernatural races. Meanwhile, a series of murders heralds the return of an old enemy, who has raised an army to aid her quest for revenge. Third part of the romantic fantasy series, with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Bryce Dallas Howard.
