Team Edward fans, watch out- there’s a new dog in town.
I was up until 3am on Twilight/New Moon overload, and I’m writing on fumes with images reeling through my mind. I bring you my review, sans spoilers:
Jacob seamlessly burst his muscled body into the flick and won over the hearts of the entire audience. He’s bold and brazen with the softest touch his hulky form can muster. The warmth in his eyes are enough to melt any warm blooded woman.
The infamous “flittering images” of Edward were delicious. Well-done; a perfect compromise between the written word and the visually dynamic needed tone of Melissa Rosenberg and Chris Weitz’s on-screen vision.
I have only two criticisms:
- The music. Not the soundtrack, mind you- the score. At two points in the movie, carnival music seemed to overtake the image of brawling wolves and provide unneeded fodder for the plane ride to Italy.
- Laurent. Though Edi Gathegi has worked himself into the hearts of fans worldwide with his overexposure to his on-screen character, perhaps he should’ve spent a bit more time on his accent. I’m not worldly traveled, but I did detect traces of French, Spanish, and Jamaican accents in his one monologue within the movie.
Overall, it’s definitely worth a wait in line, if nothing more than to see the ending clip of the flick.
On that abrupt note, have you seen the movie? What were your thoughts? If not, what are you most looking forward to seeing? At this early in the game, try to leave too much by way of spoilers of the plot…
