The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) – Movie Review

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn also known as Breaking Dawn focuses mainly on Bella Swan’s (Kristen Stewart) marriage to Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). While the wedding is grand and lavish, it is easily overdone. Ensuing the wedding, the couple then spends their honeymoon on Isle Esme in Brazil. Bella and Edward have sex and before long, Bella finds out she is pregnant.

When Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer), the Alpha of the werewolf pack learns of Bella’s pregnancy, he plans to kill Bella along with the unborn baby. Despite that, Sam and the other werewolves have no balls to launch an attack.

Eventually, Bella becomes too weak as the unborn baby overpowers her, taking all the nutrition from her body and becomes the main cause of Bella’s death.

To summarize it, first part of Breaking Dawn is all about the wedding, honeymoon, pregnancy and birth of a vampire baby and is literally boring.

In the end of part one, as expected, Bella heals, wakes up with red eyes depicting she has turned into a vampire.

Overall, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has weak storyline, full of drama and corniness and completely toothless. Certainly one of the worst, if not the worst Twilight film to date.

  • 5 out of 10
  • Breaking Dawn Part 1 is melodramatic and toothless with little to no action. Watch it if you love soap opera.
  • Yes. The Volturi clan learns of Bella’s newborn baby and when Aro (Michael Sheen) says the Cullens still have something he wants, he could possibly mean Renesmee.
