What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Lisa Human things improve in the second half: the story becomes a little more engaging, with rare moments revealing that Twilight did have potential somewhere... somehow.
Natalie Bosman If I had to swallow a teen love story in any format, the vampire angle beats the likes of college road trips and sorority balls.
Shaheema Barodien With such a beautiful cast and smoking hot love story, Twilight has hit movie written all over it. But all those good looks are only masking the mediocrity that lies beneath.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Twilight will mesmerize its target audience, 16-year-old girls and their grandmothers. Their mothers know all too much about boys like this.
James Berardinelli This is a Harlequin romance by way of Dark Shadows. If it was a little better made and more tightly plotted, it might satisfy the requirements of a guilty pleasure.
Peter Travers Bummer. The vampires have no fangs. The humans are humdrum. The special effects and makeup define cheeseball. But there’s a reason that Twilight has already become the movie equivalent of a bestseller: The love story has teeth.
C. Fuchs Appropriately titled, Twilight is rather dim any way you cut (or bite) into it and thus rates as a 3 out of 10, mainly for being so bad it actually generates some unintentional laughs and brief moments of guilty pleasure.
Tomatometer Having lost much of its bite transitioning to the big screen, Twilight will please its devoted fans, but do little for the uninitiated
