Film review for The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie (2009 movie)


The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie (2009) is interesting to say the least. Thanks for visiting this hub on HubPages. This hub will include a brief review of The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie (2009). Isabella (Bella) Swann, a character played by actress Kristen Stewart is in love with Edward Cullen, a character played by actor Robert Pattinson in the movie. She is a human and he is a vampire. Hmm. Isabella's friend Jacob (Jake), played by actor Taylor Lautner is in love with her. In the movie, Twilight New Moon, it is revealed that Jake's family has descended from wolves and every now and then, someone carries the gene to change into a very large wolf and then change back to a human as needed. Hmm.

So here is the love triangle that is presented. As you might already know, Twilight is a series that has become a cult phenomenon. Based on books, The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie is the second installment of the series. During the first installment of the series, Bella met Edward and their love flourished. She also became friends with Jacob. Now the second installment, The Twilight Saga: New Moon begins with it being Bella's eighteenth birthday. She celebrates with family and friends including her Dad, Charlie and the Cullen family separately.

In The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie, the character Bella is becoming a bit perturbed as she dreams about herself as an old lady while Edward is still young in appearance.

  • As a vampire, Edward has stopped aging.
  • He is a perpetual high school student with the body of a seventeen year old even though in actuality, he is one hundred and nine years old.

In The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie, since it is Bella's eighteenth birthday, she now feels like the older woman much to her chagrin. Edward reminds her that he is really one hundred and nine years old. That does not make her feel better because the thought of her dating such an old man is just nasty.

Bella wants to be a vampire??

The plot of the film The Twilight Saga: New Moon very much centers around Bella wanting to become a vampire so that she can also be immortal like her love interest. He tries to tell her that he would never wish his kind of life on her but she would not hear of it.

Their love is a blinding one and when Edward skips town because he thinks it would be best for Bella, she becomes hopeless. Her friend, Jake is the only one who seems to be able to get her out of her slump. They begin the project of recreationally fixing up motorcycles together, anticipating that they will go riding on them.

  • Bella is in search of an adrenaline rush to make her feel alive again.
  • In addition to working with the motorcycles, she spontaneously goes cliff diving.
  • When she puts herself in danger, she has visions of Edward trying to convince her to keep herself safe.

Just being able to see him, even as an apparition seems to give Bella this incentive to do dangerous things. (Not very healthy.)

In The Twilight Saga: New Moon the movie, Edward's sister Alice, as part of the Cullen vampire family, has a gift for seeing things before they occur. She has the vision of Bella cliff diving and speculates that she must be suicidal. Word of this gets to Edward and when he thinks Bella is dead, he wants to die too.

He approaches the Volturi, a counsel that has the power to put vampires to death. Otherwise, the vampires have this immortality.

  • The latter part of the story consists of the wild chase to prevent Edward from dying.
  • Bella is alive and and can not imagine Edward dying because he thinks that she is dead.
  • She must stop the tragic event!
