    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Ever since "True Blood" glamoured me, Twilight seems even more sexless and toothless. I prefer my undead with a little life in them. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Let's just say it: It's great there's a movie that makes teenage girls scream. Half the movies Hollywood makes are designed to make teenage boys scream, and those boy movies are just as ridiculous and a lot nastier than New Moon. show more

    The werewolves have it all over the blood-suckers in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. When these oversize, hirsute creatures burst onto the screen, they inject life into a rather inert story. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Given this swoon-inducer, Summit Entertainment would be well-advised to set up fainting couches in the multiplex lobby and provide smelling salts to those who need them. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Weitz takes a looser approach than the series’ last director, Catherine Hardwicke, did. He has a better sense of humor, too. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Once again, the three young leads give committed performances, with Lautner's character allowed a larger share of the spotlight this time around. show more

    Why does “New Moon” basically work, even with its grave self-seriousness? A few reasons. Weitz lets the material breathe, and his actors interact. The film does not try to eat you alive. show more

    Kevin C. Johnson St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    May be one of the most fun-free, angst-ridden teens we've seen on the big screen in a long time. show more

    Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post

    Despite melodrama that, at times, is enough to induce diabetes, there's enough wolf whistle in this sexy, scary romp to please anyone. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    In the sequel, Weitz lays on a pop song and slow-motion during a critical scene involving the sudden reappearance of a fearsome villain, giving everything an MTV-slick, teen-friendly gloss and reminding you this is just a movie -- a somewhat silly and hollow one. show more

    Not as pleasing as the first but still was entertaining. The story was flat and thought the action was weak. The wolf effects were amazing! But the whole thing just wasn't as good as the first [of course].
