Summary

Mommy Bear's Parent Review of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Violence

A vampire kills a human in the shadows, stating that he "needs to finish his meal." Many vampires and werewolves are killed in a violent battle scene with heads and limbs being torn off, bodies burned, and individuals falling into a chasm. A flashback shows a vampire child standing over obscured corpses with blood on its mouth.

Sexual Content

There is a brief love scene between a husband and wife with implied nudity, but it's filmed to show only hands, shoulders, feet, and kissing from the neck up. A young man strips down to his briefs before turning into a werewolf in a scene played for awkward laughs. There are some mild innuendos about married couples never getting tired of lovemaking.

Language

A few very mild obscenities.

Story

Having been turned into a vampire by her husband Edward to save her life during childbirth, Bella Swan relishes marital bliss and her newfound powers until a misunderstanding with the Volturi (a vampire secret society) leads her to stand with friends and family to protect her daughter, her husband, and her way of life.

Pros and Cons

Though some of the dialogue remains melodramatic and some of the special effects are dubious, this fast-paced finale is easily the best in the Twilight series, allowing its characters some genuine warmth and humor and replacing the interminable love triangle of previous films with a thrilling fight to defend family, friends, and true love. Romantic and thrilling.

Discussion Points

Romance can endure if friendship, faithfulness, and genuine care for each other’s well-being takes precedent. Fewer joys compare to that of parenthood. Intimacy in marriage can be a beautiful and fulfilling extension of the companionship and friendship enjoyed between spouses. We should protect our families.
