Review

The big-screen adaptation of Twilight, Stephenie Meyer''s bestselling vampire romance, is aimed squarely at its key demographic: teen girls whose idea of Prince Charming is a brooding, pale, undead teen who could kill you instantly at any moment. Such a prince is more fascinating than frightening to new girl Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who moves to the rainy-gray town of Forks, Wash., to live with her dad (Billy Burke), the local sheriff who''s puzzled by a series of "animal attacks." On her first day at school, Bella appears to (visibly) nauseate her lab partner, Edward (Robert Pattinson). Turns out the scent of her blood is this vampire''s "brand of heroin," and his struggle not to kill her causes an irresistible pull toward her. Whether he''s attracted for the normal reasons or because she smells especially sweet to him is vague in the book and even less clear on-screen; nonetheless, Bella falls hopelessly in love with Edward, which sets her on a dangerous path when a few nomad vampires show up in town, one particularly keen on tracking the human. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen), Twilight is full of funny moments--not all of which are intentional--and the casting, from Stewart to Bella''s self-absorbed friend Jessica (Anna Kendrick) is spot-on. The weakest link, unfortunately, is Pattinson. While he certainly looks the part, his Edward could have used an extra injection of testosterone (Pattinson, who is British, used James Dean as a model for his American accent). In scenes where he growls about the temptation to kill those who would harm Bella, or flitting around a forest warning her how dangerous he is, he comes off more like a whimpering puppy than a debonair monster. The good news is, his chemistry with Stewart (particularly in their big kissing scene) is palpable, which, let''s face it, is really what matters to Twilight fans most. --Ellen A. Kim

On the DVD
The special features for Twilight kick off with an audio commentary with director Catherine Hardwicke and stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. There''s some mumbling and groaning from Stewart (one gets the impression that Stewart is quite similar to her reserved character in the film), some standard behind-the-scenes observations from Hardwicke, and a lot of awkward self-deprecating remarks from Pattinson (of their big kiss, he opines: "This is quite difficult ''cause I have a really flat head, and so it''s quite difficult to get a correct angle."). What''s funny is Pattinson stumping Hardwicke with some basic plot questions, like "Why doesn''t James just kill [Bella when she''s packing at her house]?" While Hardwicke and Stewart attempt to answer, Pattinson doesn''t appear satisfied. The deleted and extended scenes include an additional dream-sequence kiss (rightly cut because it took away from the buildup to their first kiss) and more footage of Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre). The seven-part documentary is a pretty thorough look at the development of the film, including stunts, special effects, and the involvement of author Stephenie Meyer. Another featurette looks at the Comic-Con frenzy; however, it spends no time on how the actors were cast, which would have been fun for fans who did all their own mental casting while reading the books. Also included: three music videos and trailers. --Ellen A. Kim

Release Note

Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) doesn’t expect much when she moves to the small town of Forks, Washington, until she meets the mysterious and handsome Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson)—a boy who’s hiding a dark secret: he’s a vampire. As their worlds and hearts collide, Edward must battle the bloodlust raging inside him as well as a coterie of undead that would make Bella their prey. Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling sensation by Stephenie Meyer, Twilight adds a dangerous twist to the classic story of star-crossed lovers.


Editorial Reviews

TOWER.COM REVIEW

Based on the first book in Stephenie Meyer’s uberpopular Twilight series, Twilight describes the sparking of the high voltage romance between Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and brooding vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). When Bella moves from sunny Arizona to cloud-covered Forks, Oregon to live with her father, she encounters Edward, who is at once repulsed and drawn to her as if by magnetic force. Bella slowly discovers his secrets; that he is a member of a family of “vegetarian” vampires (not carrot eaters- they reject killing humans), and that he is both obsessed with her scent and in love with her, but cannot trust himself not to hurt her. The stakes are raised further by the arrival of other vampires into Forks who become infatuated with Bella’s smell and track her as prey, forcing Edward into the role of Bella’s protector. Despite initial misgivings about this tweeny vampire story, and even more reserve about the hokey tree-climbing special effects from the film’s trailer, I found this to be a thoroughly engrossing and enjoyable film. The chemistry between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is truly electrifying, and it fuels the combustible tension between Bella and Edward that drives their feverish passion, and their epic story onward. And indeed this is an epic love story, for this modern Romeo and Juliet, pitted against each other by nature, would do anything to be together, and as such love, passion, loyalty, life and death- all those meaty themes- are present for you to sink your teeth into.
