The Twilight Saga Eclipse 2-Disc Special Edition
Everybody knows of The Twilight Series of books, movies, and their popularity with both the young and old alike. There have even been teams formed backing either one of the two main male characters, Edward and Jacob. Two parts of the triangle formed with the female character Bella.
We all know the storyline by now; Bella having to choose between Edward and Jacob. To choose Edward it would be becoming a Vampire and thereby immortal but cold and without a heart. To choose Jacob it would mean staying human but loosing the love she feels for Edward. Into the mix are the Vampire clan (The Cullens) and the pack of Werewolves following Jacob.
This third movie "Eclipse" finds the Cullens and the Werewolves joining forces to battle the "newborns" created by Victoria in her quest to destroy Bella, a thread which has continued through all 3 movies. During the fighting between the vampires, werewolves, and ultimately those two joining to battle those newborns, the decision that Bella has to make, between Edward and Jacob, remains a tough one for her because she knows that no matter which one she chooses, it could ignite a renewed and continuing battle of the Vampires and Werewolves.
Twilight "Eclipse" 2-Disc Special Edition is a great addition to the Twilight Series. Included are so many extras you won't find elsewhere.
The Best of the Twilight Series
This movie follows the book closely. You definitely won't feel cheated, as though something in a book was left out. There are amazing action scenes throughout and you won't be disappointed during the big battle at the end. The special effects are well done and panoramic scenery is wonderful to view.
Edward, Jacob, and Bella all seem more relaxed in that they interact more naturally, with more feeling. Jacob's struggles with his love for Bella as well as the changes he undergoes with his body are heartfelt, along with his interaction with the Quileutes members. During one scene we are treated to a history of the Quileutes, how they became werewolves.
More of the Cullen clan's history is dealt with, indepth; showing the viewers how Rosalie and Jasper became vampires, the reasons why Rosalie appears to have such a dislike for Bella and how Jasper became the consummate fighter that he is.
Lastly, the character of Charlie continues to be well played. His continued struggle to accept the man Bella loves and his distrust of Edward is felt by the viewer.
