Twilight | Catherine Hardwicke (2008) ★★☆☆☆
Twilight, the romantic/fantasy film based on the famous novel by Stephanie Meyer. The story is focusing on 17-year-old Bella Swan who has just moved to a small town to live with her father for a while. She meets Edward Cullen who seems to find Bella quite repulsive when they first sit together in biology class. She confuses and tries to confront him but he mysteriously disappears for days. A few days later Edward saves her life with his incredible speed and strength. Eventually Bella discovers the true identity of Edward as he is no ordinary human, he is in fact a vampire. then they fall in love with each other blah, blah, blah. the end.

The story is quite okay for a romantic drama with a few action scenes. I guess the film was made for the novel’s fans (which I ain’t one of them.) Some of the subplots does not make any sense to me. Or may be I have to continue watching the whole saga and hope that there would be a great twist in the end.

The bad guy dies too quick and too easy.
I could only guess that the werewolves will be comin’ next.
