All Movie Guide
Eclipse is the third installment in the Twilight Saga, but unlike the previous films this one feels like a deserving blockbuster, with a faster-paced story and more action. Of course, the things that make a Twilight film what it is -- teenage romance and bloody danger -- still remain, but this film feels less sappy and more urgent while at the same time avoiding the hormonal deluge of Twilight and the sleepiness of New Moon. Director David Slade nails the tone and intercuts bouts of breezy romance, sexual tension, and suspenseful action, while screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg skillfully translates Stephenie Meyer's prose into a digestible and coherent narrative. Some of the themes stay the same, but Eclipse gets right to the thing that makes this franchise so popular: the love triangle between Bella, Edward, and Jacob. It's the ultimate fantasy -- a young girl is forced to choose between two equally tall, dark, and broody men who yearn for her. This desire leads to conflict, and Bella finds herself stuck between the vampire she loves and the wolf she's falling for. In Eclipse, Edward is determined to marry Bella and Bella wants to lose her soul and virginity to her broody vampire beau. Edward wants to keep her pure and living as long as he can, and so does Jacob for that matter, who gets angry after Bella tells him that she'll become a bloodsucker after graduation. After the requisite reintroductions of minor characters, the film picks up quickly. Victoria's back, but this time she's created herself an army of newborn vampires -- undisciplined yet powerful and extremely dangerous. In order to protect Bella, an unlikely alliance forms between the wolf pack and the Cullens, which leads to Edward and Jacob teaming up -- and bumping heads -- all in a bid to keep her safe and win her heart. Rosenberg broadens the series' scope, this time incorporating backstories for supporting characters Jasper and Rosalie and adding meatier rolls for Bryce Dallas Howard and Dakota Fanning, but most importantly, Bella and Edward are allowed a wider range of emotions. The sexual tension between stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is pretty hot, and despite the fact that all they really do is kiss, the chemistry is definitely there. Both actors seem more comfortable in their roles -- though Taylor Lautner stands out as the shape-shifting werewolf making Bella's decision that much more difficult. But like all the Twilight films, there's a balancing act between swooning cheesiness and gothic slaughter. With sweeping shots of the mountains of British Columbia as stand-ins for Forks and slightly better special effects than in previous Twilight films, Slade alternates between suspense and romance with careful precision. There are times when the film pokes fun at itself -- like when the Cullens joke about throwing a party because "how many times are you going to graduate from high school?" or when Edward comments to Bella about a shirtless Jacob, "Doesn't he own a shirt?" -- but true fans will love this installment, which is easily the best so far in the series, for the simple fact that Eclipse is the film in which Bella finally chooses between Edward and Jacob.

    WAIT UNTIL IT COMES OUT ON REGULAR TV

    Good acting by Jackson Rathbone, and Rob P. is still improving. What a croak again, thought 3rd time would be the charm. Uneventful again. When are someone going to give gifts of acting classes to Kristen and Taylor. KS & TL should donate their salary for these movies to charities.
    Stephenie wrote a decent book, why can't the screenwriter write a decent script, the more I see of these movies with these non acting people the more I cringe. I know they can't replace them, but Kristen said in the commentary that they rehearsed, are you kidding me!!! There are young actors (male & female) out their that make KS & TL look like idiots on the screen. Maybe the cast should watch The Vampire Diaries!!! (enough said) I am sorry to be so critical. I hope BILL C. does a better job with Breaking Dawn.

    Highly Recommended - a must see!

    The third installment of the Saga was very much worth the wait. It is difficult to adapt such a detailed novel into a movie and, of course, some aspects of the book were combined in the essence of time but the general story stayed true to the book.

    Highly Recommended

    The Twilight Saga movies just keep getting better and better. This is a movie that your entire family will enjoy. It is a love story between a human girl and a one hundred year old vampire, who will always look age 17. Edward loves Bella and would give up his life for her. Bella feels the same. Enter a shapeshifter Wolf, who acts like a spoiled brat much of the time, but in this film, the competition between Jacob and Edward for Bella, is down right funny. There is danger to Bella from a group of new vampires who want to kill her. The fight to protect her provides a great deal of action. The film has beautiful outdoor locations. Lots of new faces are there, and the acting is excellent. This film is worth the money and time.

    Still waiting for the best movie

    Which I suspect will be Breaking Dawn. I enjoyed this enough to see it 6 times and while yes, it's certainly better than New Moon, I am a TWI-HARD of the first degree and still like Twilight best. Why, because it did a good job of bringing the characters I had learned to like and love to life. I thought Billy Burke was incredible as Bella's dad. New Moon had some good "moments", and Eclipse well, it was exciting,a lot more tension between Edward and Jacob but I think the director let some opportunities pass by, In the book there was so much more to Jaspers story, and while we know Alice, & Emmet were also adopted by Carlisle we know very little about them in their pre vampire days. And Carlisle and Esme themselves need a little bit more of a story.( I know he is given a little background as a member of the Volturi. Eclipse would have been wonderful to have covered more ground. But, like the book, the movie was very good, very entertaining and yes left you wanting more and more and more. I wish Ms. Myers would realise her charters stories are far from done and write at least two more books to give us complete closure. Bree Tanner was a waste of her time and ours it added nothing to the Twilight Saga. it's the characters we have come to know that we want more of.

    Made me love the book even more.

    Eclipse has been the best of the series. I loved the book, but it was one of my least favorite. The movie made me appreciate the book even more. I like how the movie gave you more of the Seattle vampires. The cast was great, and the acting is getting better with every film. I can't wait to see it again, and again. This is a must see for all Twilight fans.

    Werewolves and Vampires! Oh My!

    If you like a good drama movie than Eclipse is your kind of movie. It is a action love and drama movie. The actors are great for their roles, the words are great and they go with the story Eclipse is the best movie I have ever seen and it about vampire and a werewolf and they both love a girl named Bella. The bad vampires are after Bella and the werewolves and the vampires have to team up work together and fight the bad vampires and¿¿ you will have to watch to find out how it ends People should buy or rent Eclipse and every other movie in the Twilight series there are two other movies the 1st movie is called Twilight and 2nd and than Eclipse is the 3rd one The last one of the twilight series is called Breaking Dawn and it just came out in the movie theater so you can¿t buy or rent it yet. If it is anything like Eclipse you should watch it when it comes out too That¿s all I have to say about Eclipse hope you watch it and enjoy it as much as I do.
