For a filmmaker, one of the most important things to learn is to honor your audience.
This is, especially, important in a franchise series wherein the characters and the actors who play them become an extended family to the core viewers, perhaps, for many, because they represent the family they wish they were part of.
This film gives great honor to its core audience with all of the original cast involved and being featured to finalize their story in a way to “quench the thirst” of the saga’s fans. That is different than a film like Godfather 3, which should have been the best of the series, if key actors weren’t so concerned with their pocketbooks instead of honoring their fans.Now, everyone knows the core audience for the Twilight series is young women, but lest you guys think this is just a “chick flic,” Breaking Dawn 2’s climactic battle bests that of ANY action film this year and ranks as an all-timer in this regard. The film is worth a second viewing by action fans just for this. And, the surprise resolution to the battle will blow your mind!
Many of the film’s actors will be, for many years, the stars of the future. I predict that Taylor Lautner’s career will top Robert Pattinson’s, who will also have a strong career.
And, Ashley Greene will be one of Hollywood’s top leading ladies with a career that might even surpass the current success of Kristen Stewart.I give The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 a 4+ for the series’ fan base and a 4 for the rest of us.
