Plot: (via IMDb) Bella is enjoying her new life and new powers, after the birth of their daughter, Renesmee. Soon, however, their family bliss is threatened again, by a new menace. Vampire Irina believes a child like Renesmee could challenge the power and existence of the Volturi. As Irina rallies the Volturi to destroy this potential threat, Bella and the Cullens - together with any allies they can assemble - are preparing to fight a crucial, ultimate battle, to protect their family.

Let me begin this review with telling you, it was not an easy review to write. To finally watch the last movie of the Twilight Saga, that alone was sad and heartening on its own. You knew this day would come but when it arrived you just didn't want it to be the end. The end to me represents more then just the last movie, it's made me think its the end of this amazing fandom we have been a part for many years. No more movies, no more red carpets, not seeing some of my friends ever again in person and not being a part of Stephenie Meyer's dream anymore. Why would I want to get off that roller coaster ride? Would you? So I don't want to say goodbye or accept this is the end, so for now I'll just think I'm saying See you soon to a friend.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 begins with Bella opening her eyes and seeing everything in such remarkable detail for the first time with her vampire sight. Bella immediately finds Edward in her vision and they embrace for the first time. Just like in the book, they go off on the hunt so she can fed properly before she can see Renesmee and not be tempted to her her daughter. Edward and Bella look amazing off hunting, its like they were meant to always do it side by side. Pretty much what you read in the books takes places in said order but adapted so the movie isn't 10 hours long. There might be minor details you'll catch but its needed to keep a balanced flow. In the book some scenes were several chapters long. The cottage scene will once again woo you with how intensely Bella and Edward love each other. As a mother, Bella also captured the bond between mother and child to the T. The humor of course has not been left out, Jacob's character adds plenty of it. Wait till the scene that Jacob tells Bella he imprinted, its "LOL" funny. Then when the movie begins to get dark, It's when Alice has the vision the Volturi are coming after her family. We get introduced to all those covens throughout those scenes. Everyone played their specific coven part spectacularly. Renesmee touches your heart with her character just like her touch does in the movie. About now in the movie everything becomes 1 million times intense. When the Volturi arrive with their witnesses and wives, it feels like Armageddon is about to go down. During this event between the Cullen's and all the covens facing the Volturi, tears exploded out of my eyes along with my jaw dropping. I didn't just cry, it was body wrecking sobs at its highest. Bill Condon the director went there and I applaud him for it. Condon did not hold anything back from this point on. While my eyes continue torrential downpour, my heart gets jolted like if someone took a defibrillator directly to my chest and straight to my heart. So around now we come to the last scenes in the movie and breathtaking is one of many words I can use to describe them. "The Epic finale that will live Forever" is the perfect caption to summarize this movie.

Let me tell you how hard it is to talk about a movie and keep it spoiler free, even though its based from a book it makes it even more difficult. When you read the book, you directed your own movie in your head with Stephenie Meyer's words, but as a movie, Bill Condon took those words and created this film, and even though we know this and this happens, watching it on the film is a whole other ball game. So that being said get ready to experience so much during the film. It will be sensory overload. I will be watching the movie again tomorrow when it premiers for everyone nationwide. I feel that I need to watch it again, believe it or not even though I did write this review, I'm still processing everything I witness and felt. On Monday night when I met Bill Condon and told him it was everything and more, I genuinely meant it. Thank you Bill Condon and everyone behind the scenes for nailing this last installment in our beloved Twilight Saga. To Stephenie Meyer, I hope like many others do that we haven't seen the last of this world.

This part I felt was needed to parents that plan to take their children to see the movie. As far as the sexual parts, I believe a child over 12/13 years of age would be safe, younger you might cover their eyes. The sexual content is done very tastefully but it is there. Now what I'm really concerned about for the kids is the level or intensity of the parts that contain violence and how graphic they are. I would strongly suggest the parent to see the movie first then judge if the young child can understand the violence that is shown. In my opinion, maybe under the age of 13 should wait till you have seen it. Hey this gives the parent another reason why to go and see it again in theaters. So there you have it, This movie will touch your heart and leave you thinking about it for a long time to come. its just EPIC!

Stay tuned as we will recap the week we just spent in Los Angeles and the experiences we had attending the world premier, after party and fan camp. 


  1. WELL SAID YARA! This is the ONLY thing about BD2 I have read. I am staying spoiler free 100%. I love how you described the movie and I am so anxious to see it!

  2. Yara, it is so special reading this from you. When I saw it pop into my inbox, I couldn't wait to hear what you thought. And how cool is it that you got to talk with the director? Go Yara! :)

  3. It is a bit sad that this is the last movie. It was fun getting together with girlfriends and making it a special night. I just wish Stephenie would kick out Midnight Sun.
