Synopsis: After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi.

Reaction: An excellent capstone to the series. If for no other reason than they've finally gotten rid of all that angst lying about.

Personal Rating: 8/10

  • The battle scene between the Cullens (and their witnesses) and the Volturi was written to give the movie a dramatic action sequence, and was not present in the book.
  • The film's final word is 'forever', which in the end credits is featured on the page of a book. This is also the final word in the novel itself.
  • Both an animatronic baby and 3-week-old babies were used in the film. Kristen Stewart preferred working with the real babies because she felt they helped her give a better performance.

  • To protect Mackenzie Foy on the set, Bill Condon had set up a swear jar where any cast and crew members caught swearing or uttering profanities were fined on the spot. The amount collected from the jar was donated to St. Jude's Children Hospital.
