The 'Breaking Dawn' Battle Scene Converted Me From a 'Twilight' Hater

Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2

Last night I saw my first-ever Twilight movie. Yup, me, the Twilight virgin, finally caved and checked out Breaking Dawn Part 2. Here's the thing: I just have never been crazy into the whole vampire thing. It sucks, too, because there are some super hunky actor vampires out there, namely Ian Somerhalder and Mr. Robert Pattinson himself.

I had a few thoughts of what I'd be getting into at the theater. To be real, I didn't think the acting would be that good, I hoped to see Taylor Lautner with his shirt off, and after reading through some of the spoilers, I expected to do a whole lot of "awww"-ing.

What I got, though, wasn't what I really expected at all. Primarily the battle scene. The hardcore battle scene. The battle scene that I had no clue was even going to happen. All 27 minutes intense minutes of it that transformed me from anti-Twilight to, well, not so anti-Twilight.

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!

Before we really get started here, I just want to say for the record that I only glazed over spoilers and never really read anything that gave away the plot of Breaking Dawn Part 2.

The effects in the battle scene were pretty damn good, and there were a whole slew of times that I wanted to go and cover my eyes, scared to see someone else's head get ripped off or attacked.

What struck me the most, though, was the way that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart really came alive (figuratively speaking, of course) in the heat of combat. To see Kristen with such crazy expressions on her face, I was surprised how much I really believed her maternal instincts when it came to protecting Renesmee

As for RPattz, well, he looks hella good flying 30 feet through the air. Granted I have no clue how Hollywood works their magic, but it was just about as believable as a high-intense battle could be. And oh god! I was so nervous when I thought he was going to fall to his doom. No! Not that beautiful face!

Was I bummed that the action wasn't "really happening"? Yeah, of course. But hey, that's what movies do. Do I think I'll backtrack and watch all the other twilight movies? Eh, maybe one day. For now, though, it's kind of cool to finally know what the buzz is about.

What did you think of the battle scene in Breaking Dawn Part 2? Have you seen all of the Twilight movies?

I was a Twilight virgin as well until the week part 2 came out. I had to see what all the hype was about. I've now seen all 4 and am waiting for my chance to see the last one. I'll probably be waiting for awhile since the theaters keep selling out around me. I would have to say while Jacobs body is amazing, I'm definitely a Edward fan. There's just something about being mysterious that gets my blood flowing!

I HATED the battle scene. It totally ruined the movie. The whole point in the book was that there was no battle. Yes, maybe anticlimactic, but that's how the book was written. I thought it was stupid to put a battle in the movie- whether it was just a vision or not.

Being a Twihard book fan, and one that had to be badgered to read them, once I read them, I was HOOKED!! I could NEVER have watched the movies without 1st falling in love with the stories. Needless to say, when the battle scene happened I was SO MAD, I was thinking of walking out! I mean, how DARE they change the ending of my beloved books!  Glad I resisted the urge, and in retrospect, this is how the last book SHOULD HAVE ended, perfect...

I loved the twist they did on the ending, i was sitting there with my jaw hanging when carlisle got his head ripped off and got soo into it then poof! it was all alice's vision...loved it!! So damn sad this is the end though  :(

I LOVED the battle scene!!! At first of course I didnt because I didnt know what the hell was happening and then about a minute into it i thought okay this has to be Alice's vision... But then it just kept GOING and GOING and I started freaking out some more! haha I thought it was a perfect twist from the book because you dont get to see exactly what Alice had invisioned in the book. They did a perfect job on this movie!!

I and my brother watched it and neither of us realized it was Alice's vision till the end when it goes back. . . And we're both generally pretty good at catching things like that.
