Story: Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 starts when Bella (Stewart) has come back to life as a vampire. She needs to learn to control her urges and learn to adapt to the power she possesses.

Verdict on Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the final chapter in the fantasy romance tale. It puts the Cullens in their biggest fight to date. Putting them up against the Volturi, the powerful vampire coven that controls vampire decisions.

This does feel like a solid conclusion, despite not bringing us a massive completion to everything. In fact, it feels like an anti-climax that is only the beginning of a much bigger story to come. This built up the bigger battle only to not deliver and leave us waiting to see if we end up getting the end of the fight. The best part of the whole series is how disturbing killing vampires is. The crushing of the neck and twist while arms get ripped off, is the biggest standout in the film series.

Final ThoughtsTwilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a flat finish to a saga that never really got going.
