The aura of romance between Edward and Bella might have revived the fantasy of the saga but the film scored an average and to some extent was not at its best but good enough to pull the attention of the viewers.
The downy flow of emotions and ecstasy with the tinge of romance might have kept the exhilaration alive and the film advanced through eye-catching starcast and cinematography although ending up with not-so-convincing acting and an average storyline.
The main plot of the film begins with Victoria, who is back conniving and hellbent to do away with Bella, and on the verge of forming an army of fresh vampires. The film also portrays Bella’s desire to turn herself into a vampire and Edward’s denial towards this. While this happens Jacob falls in love with Bella but Edward wants Bella in his life and desires to marry her. In this process Bella finds herself in a dilemma- to choose between the two as her soulmate.
The story sticks to the book to a huge level. The portrayal of Rosalie and Jasper as per background information was convincingly filmed. Intimate scenes between Edward and Bella and the scene where Jacob kisses Bella had the audience (all of them die-hard Twilight fans) crazy.
Edward and Jacob’s apprehension for Bella and their endeavor towards her protection was finely filmed. The action sequences swathed with visual effects were cleverly pictured, not forgetting slick screenplay and direction.
The film was packaged well, encompassing all the elements required for fantasizing and envisaging the fiction but again could have been better in terms of storyline and acting.
But The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is still nothing without the audience. Watching the young ‘uns screaming when Edward and Jacob take to the screen is something one can’t get over for a long time.
