The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner | PG-13 |
You don’t have to be a Twi-hard to enjoy Eclipse. The third installment of the teen vampire series assumes nonfans know the basics-undead Edward (Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob (Lautner) are hot for Bella (Stewart), still the dullest girl in the Pacific Northwest. But new details about the vampires’ and werewolves’ pasts and some humor give us all entree into their angsty world. Lautner shines (and is funny) after his wolf pack drops its Sharks-Jets thing with Edward’s pasty clan and the rivals unite to repel a dinky vamp “army.” The weak link is sulky Bella herself-too bad it’s her movie.
