The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 ★★

I do not enjoy how the wildly regressive themes under the surface of this franchise are somehow becoming even more weirdly puritan now that the two main characters are finally having sex, but it seems Stephanie Meyers can not get over herself. I do enjoy how violently insane (not to mention insanely violent) a lot of the choices Condon makes here are, and Billy Burke, Michael Sheen and Lee Pace all deserve retroactive honorary Oscars for their work, but I still thought large parts of this were such a drag I find it hard to conform to the seemingly growing online consensus that this is The Good One. It's probably my third favorite, though as all of these top out at 2,5 stars for me it's probably safe to say this franchise is just Not For Me.
