'Breaking Dawn: Part 1' Reviews Say It's the Best 'Twilight' Yet (VIDEO)

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 ReviewsIT. IS. HERE. Today's the day that so many Twi-hards have been waiting for. Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart), Jacob (Taylor Lautner), and the whole gang are back for Breaking Dawn: Part 1, in theaters today (!!!).

Directed by Bill Condon, the film follows Edward and Bella as they get married, go on their honeymoon, and have their first child. The big question now that it's finally here -- was all the hype worth the wait? See what the critics are saying in their Breaking Dawn reviews here:


Manohla Dargis, New York Times:

The latest and best of the movies about a girl, her vampire and their impossible, ridiculously appealing -- yes, I surrendered -- love story.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News:

To outsiders, in fact, Breaking Dawn: Part I will probably look like the weirdest, most expensive chastity commercial ever created. But Meyer's massive fan base will see something else entirely. They'll see a faithful, well-made depiction of the most eventful book in a beloved series (or, at least, the first half; the second half arrives in 2012). They'll see the actors they adore embodying characters they cherish.

Scott Bowles, USA Today:

It is in many respects the best installment of the franchise as its stars go from sullen kids to sullen young adults, where their expressions look more natural.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times:

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 is absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and has without doubt the most blood-curdling scene of live childbirth in a PG-13 movie.

The Stir's own staff writer Maressa Brown (her full review here):

If you couldn't tell, a true fan couldn't possibly be disappointed. Breaking Dawn is everything you want it to be ... and maybe more. In fact, it might just be the most perfect Twilight flick yet. 

If you're a Twilight fan, it's obvious that Breaking Dawn is a must-see. If you're not? Then maybe you should catch up on your own before diving into the newest installment headfirst. Of course, that doesn't mean you can't go and casually ogle RPattz in all of his shirtless scenes for fun. Just don't expect to understand everything that's going on in the process.
