    Bummer. The vampires have no fangs. The humans are humdrum. The special effects and makeup define cheeseball. And the movie crowds in so many characters from Stephenie Meyer’s book that Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen) is less a director than a traffic cop. But there’s a reason that Twilight has already become the movie equivalent of a bestseller: The love story has teeth. show more

    Twilight has a few gory plot turns - mostly offscreen - and one near-sex scene that may offend a few Amish people, but the rest is maybe 33 percent less wholesome than "High School Musical." It's almost certainly less risque than what you were watching when you were 14. (Cue the soundtrack to "Risky Business.") show more

    Despite questionable casting, wooden acting, laughable dialogue and truly awful makeup, nothing is likely to stop young girls from swarming to this kitschy adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's popular novel. show more

    It has a good, rich style...but the story is amazing! The actors are great and there is a point in the series. Fantasy is everything. I enjoyed it. It was better than the sequels.

    This was a very bad version of the twilight series. This movie skipped many major important scenes in the movie. This is why the movie was so bad. To all Twilight fans out there I do not recommend seeing this movie at all.
