Movie review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

One part romance, one part action film, the pieces come together in the fifth and final installment of the "Twilight" franchise "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2."

The film, based on the wildly popular Stephanie Meyer series, picks right up where Part 1 left off. Director Bill Condon and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg doesn't hold back on more back story, blood-sucking and head-ripping action scenes.

This time, there's something different about the normally anxious Bella Swan (Kristin Stewart) who is a stronger, more confident and aggressive character as a "newborn" vampire. 

Twihards will get their fill of steamy heart-throbs Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) as they work together against the dominating Volturi.  Hmm... I guess the wolf doesn't smell as bad as we were lead to believe.

And if you didn't get enough of the intimate scenes between Edward and Bella in "Breaking Dawn Part 1," you will surely get flustered by the fierce lovemaking between the two-- now.  Especially since they're both vampires.

Edward and Bella's daughter, Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy), part vampire and part mortal, is the focus of everyone's attention. The young couple struggles to convince the Volturi that Renesmee is not a threat, which  leads to an intense ending -- leaving you breathless -- proving this last movie to be the best of the entire saga.

But wait -- is this the end? We'll have to wait and see.

4/5 stars
