"Thought this was much better than the 2nd film. I watched twice, once with my girlfriends who are all Twihard fans, and then with my boyfriend (27, and very reluctabnt to go, had to be bribed) He was actually pleasantly surprised and has asked if he can come with me and my girls when the fourth film is released. It has a solid story and is fast-paced. Ignoring the 'love triangle' (there clearly isn't one, Jacob is never going to get Bella, lets be honest) i really enjoyed the new characters, the sometimes scary undertones and the impressive visual imagery. Also want to point out that to those who have invested a lot of time in reading the books and watching the films, the flashbacks of Jasper and Rosalie are really rewarding - it's nice for some of the other characters to have some depth. One last thing - I would never have picked Stewart to play Bella, she distracts me with her constant stammering/pausing/twitching. Having watched interviews with the actress, this is not actually acting, she is like that in reality."
