Disappointed with Twilight movie

(Warning: Some spoilers exist in this post. Prepare to be disappointed. Hehehe…)

The title is TRUE. I admit, I am a fanatic of the Twilight series and it must really be a mystery to all those who know me why I am disappointed with the movie. Now allow me to enlighten you.

I’ve read the book first before I watched the film. I was expecting that the characters, especially Edward, will be played well. However, it didn’t happen that way.

True enough, Robert Pattinson is gorgeous but his acting lacks the ‘dazzling charms’ that Edward is suppose to have. Kristen Stewart tried her best to carry out her character perfectly. Yet again, the flaws in the script made her make Bella so weak and clumsy. AND that’s not how it should be. We must understand that Edward fell in love with Bella because of the strength she shows despite her clumsiness.  Bella’s strength wasn’t even emphasized in the film.

Another one. Bella and Edward’s romantic scenes were very few. It seems to me that they compressed all the dialogues into like three romantic scenes only. Very disappointing.

Have you noticed that Edward is actually a vampire? If I didn’t read the book, I’ll probably be shocked to learn that he is. I mean, okay, his vampire nature was unleashed at the end part. But what about on the other scenes? There were supposed to be hints about his hideous nature. His teeth should have been visible on some parts. But nothing was shown. Very frustrating for the vampires out there.

Also, there were so many tweaks on the story. Bella was supposed to meet Jacob Black for the first time in La Push. Yet, she met him when her father gave her the truck. And the way she discovered about the vampires, is quite far from the original story.

Anyway, I guess that’s just really how movies go. Lots of tweaks that sometimes they fail to notice that they’ve already ruined the story.

FINE. Forgive my rants. I will now keep quiet and just continue loving the Edward I knew from the book. 🙂
