The supernatural tale of star-crossed lovers continues as the Cullen family flees Forks in order to protect Bella (Kristen Stewart), and the heartbroken high-school senior discovers that vampires aren't the only creatures in town. Realizing that Bella will never be safe as long as he's around, Edward (Robert Pattinson) makes the difficult decision to leave his beloved behind shortly after her 18th birthday. Reeling from her loss, Bella embraces self-destruction after being comforted by Edward's image during a moment of mortal peril. But as heavy-hearted as Bella may be, her old friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner) distracts her from her sorrows by helping her renovate a weather-beaten motorbike. When Bella encounters a former adversary with a sizable grudge, she's rescued from harm at the last second by pack of enormous, ferocious wolves. Subsequently delving into the history of the Quileutes, Bella discovers the secrets of Jacob's tribe while looking forward to a reunion with Edward that may have deadly consequences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I reluctantly watched the first movie in this series and became quickly entranced. This second film was not nearly as good as its predecessor, and I daresay it was BORING. However, the hype is enough that my daughters and I are looking forward to viewing the third installment. If one is desiring to keep up with the storyline of the trilogy, watching the second film is somewhat important, but if one is just looking for a good movie to watch, then SKIP this one!
I found it to be a snooze fest myself. Very predictable story line that has been reused more times than the recycled paper it is written on. All these vampire shows seem to have the same story. A +100 year old vampire trying to seduce a barely legal teen (even the original Count Dracula had a similar plot). And then they throw in a warewolf (very typical of these movies these days) who is even younger than the above listed teen. Frankly, I thought the movie sends out a bad message to all the teenage girls out there. It basicly says, "Do what ever you want without your parents knowledge or consent, and that "bad" boy you are dating behind their backs won't hurt you in the end." And people wonder why we have such high teen pregnancies.
This is my favorite Series of ALL TIME!!! This movie was better than the first, and I'm confident that the last 2 will be even better than this one!! Everyone that says that this movie sucks, has really bad taste in movies and no one should listen to them! I think everyone of all ages, men and women should watch this movie, because it is sooooo worth the time and money!!Robert Pattinson is SO SEXY!!

I did not hate it, there were some nice fight scenes. However Kristen Stewart's acting was dry and I do not think she is able to make more than 2 facial expressions. I literally laughed out loud on at least 5 parts, and it was not supposed to be funny. The Bela character is weak and stupid, I have a 3 year old daughter and I hope even when she is a teen she has a better idea of love and loss than this girl.
