The Twilight Saga - Eclipse DVD [2010] Description

The third installment of Stephenie Meyers blockbuster vampire series is its most action packed, both in terms of fight scenes and human-vampire-werewolf lovin. In Eclipse, the vampiric Cullen clan and the werewolves--their sworn enemies--unite against an army of newborn vampires, whose remnants of human blood in their veins makes them stronger and more uncontrollable, causing a string of murders in the Seattle area. Theyve been created by the vengeful vampire Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard, taking over for Rachelle Lefevre), still keen on destroying human Bella (Kristen Stewart). Thus, Bella is under careful watch, and her undead love Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf best friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner) spend a lot of time arguing over who is the better man for her. (In one hilarious scene where Bellas freezing and only Jacob has the lupine body heat to warm her, he looks over at Edward and cracks, I am hotter than you. Go Team Jacob!) But theres more at the heart of the triangle than love: Bella, against Edwards warnings, doesnt want to grow older than him and would willingly give up contact with her parents, the chance to grow old with children, and more to be turned into a bloodthirsty vampire. (Jacobs trump card is that Bella wouldnt have to give up her mortality to be with him.) But the unfolding of this love triangle is even clumsier than it was on the page; youre never really convinced Bella has romantic feelings for Jacob, even during their climactic kiss on top of the mountain. This is likely to confuse non-readers of the book series, as Stewart emotes nothing that intones theres a real competition here (clearly, shes Team Edward). Pattinson, on the other hand, appears to have overcome his awkwardness to become a much cooler Edward; Howard, while missing Lefevres mischief as Victoria, brings her own touch of soft-spoken manipulation; and Billy Burke, as Bellas father Charlie, continues to steal every scene hes in. The other Cullens also get far more play here, notably Rosalie (Nikki Reed), whose revealing back story is touching and tragic, and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), who trains everyone in combat and who, halfway through the movie, adopts a sudden Southern accent that he didnt have before, once its revealed he was a Confederate soldier (on a side note, its mentioned in the books that Jasper can calm the emotions of others, but that trait isnt used in the movie). The climactic fight scene is well staged by director David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hard Candy); the violence, while not bloody, is still more abundant and disturbing than in the previous films; and the sex, while not actually happening between anyone (yet), is certainly on everyones mind (but Edward wants to get married first). It seems the characters, and the series, are growing up. --Ellen A.
