Ok, so I admit it, I could not wait for Breaking Dawn 1 to come out and despite all the unfavourable reviews that are out there, I stand firm in saying that the wait was totally worth it.
Rotten Tomatoes is a little too harsh in saying this about the film,
Slow, joyless, and loaded with unintentionally humorous moments, Breaking Dawn Part 1 may satisfy the Twilight faithful, but it’s strictly for fans of the franchise.
There is slight truth that the film might appeal more to the fans, but that is only natural. There is no denying that this was a good film. Director Bill Condon does a wonderful job in staying as true to the book as was feasible and the cinematography is excellent. The close-ups, the lighting, the sets and the makeup are the most visually appealing than any other film in the series.
The movie starts off with the anticipated wedding of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattison). The setting is stunning and all of the original cast members from the last three films are all in attendance, as well as some new additions, such as the Denali vampires from Alaska. However one that was missing was Jacob (Taylor Lautner) who only shows up at the end of the night to show his disdain.

From there, the couple head to a Brazilian island for their honeymoon and due to a bizarre twist of fate, they return abruptly causing an exciting and somewhat violent confrontation between their vampire family and the werewolves.
True, Breaking Dawn Part 1 is no Academy Award contender, but regardless of that it is an enjoyable film, mostly for those who have seen all the rest, and even more so for those that have read the books.
Twilight, Breaking Dawn 1 is worth seeing
