Story: In Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life. (Summit Entertainment)
Rated: PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, and some sensuality
Bottom Line: This third installment of the popular book-based franchise benefits from having a better blend of emotion, romance and action. It’s my favorite of the bunch – but that’s like saying this piece of cat poop has more sugar on it then that one. The acting is still awful, the dialogue still cheesy and the script still a mess – but the movie didn’t make me want to go home and bash my toes with a tack-hammer so... My hope is that one day crazy fans will admit that, like the vampires and werewolves that inhabit them, these movies still suck and bite.
