The Twilight Saga: New Moon

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

A still from the film ‘The Twilight Saga...’ .

A sequel to the mega-hit ‘Twilight’, the ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ begins with Bella Swan’s (Kristen Stewart) 18th birthday party where she tells her vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) to transform her into his kind. But her 109-years-old-beau, stuck-in-a-17-year-old-boy’s body has no desire to suck out her blood and soul. So, the party becomes a turning point in the entire plot. Edward breaks up with Bella.

Separted by distance, Bella soon  begins to see why Edward did not grant her wish. But desperate and lonely she soon finds solace in a handsome hunk, Jacob Black (Lautner) who has his own werewolf secrets. As Bella’s life sinks deeper into a possessive relationship  she soon realises she’s standing on the cliff of danger. Now, all she needs is a saviour and who is to come to her rescue and how is what keeps the plot of the film engrossing. The film is based on Stephenie Meyer’s second book on the ‘Twilight’ series and director Chris Weitz refined it as a modern day Romeo-Juliet story where you have action and melo-drama.

If we look ‘New Moon’ from ‘Twilight’, it is moody most of the time until Bella meets the warm and cheerful Jacob. The second half of the film is also slow with many show offs scenes. However, the eerie howlings and comical stunts save the good versus bad vampire saga. Another good news is that ‘New Moon’ is a ladies charmer. You have one of the sweetest hunks around trying to capture the heart of Bella. As Pattinson is out of the scene for a long period Lautner’s charm and biceps are much more noticeable.

The film ends in a sentimental note leaving the audience to conclude that they have to see the other two parts of the ‘Twilight’ books on the silver screen.
