This installment revolves around Bella and Edward’s wedding, honeymoon and the troubled birth of their baby. The only supernatural action involves the angry transformations of the werewolf clan. Otherwise, it’s the soap opera aspects of personal drama and concern. Director Bill Condon (best known for “Dreamgirls” and “Gods & Monsters”) has brought his skill with performance and relationships to keep the interactions interesting. There’s nothing brilliant here, but a continuation of the compelling story that’s popular with so many. NOTE: Stay through the title credits at the end for a plot development.
GAY ANGLE: Out director Condon only gives us brief flesh flashes of Pattinson & Lautner.
Jerry Williams reviewed movies for WTVR-TV for 14 years and for Style Weekly for 10 years. When he launched his own website in 1998 at TVJerry.com, he took his reviews to the Internet. Through those hundreds of reviews, Jerry kept his sexual orientation muted. So, he's excited to be adding "gay angles" to his postings for GayRVA.com.
