Twilight's 'Breaking Dawn' Not Wedded Bliss

Ad Feedback

The fourth installment of the vampire series, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," hit movie theaters Friday.

After a long and tumultuous courtship, Bella Swan and her vampire beau, Edward Cullen, are finally tying the knot.

But Plugged In film critic Bob Hoose points out the film is far from being a tale of innocent wedded bliss.

"The film wants us to ignore the bloodsucking nastiness of it all by masking it in selfless actions and sweet baby smiles," he wrote.

"But if you're looking, the truth is driven home by the impact on Bella's withering body, her internally snapping bones and eventually stone-cold heart," he added.

Focus on the Family film critic Bob Waliszewski reviews "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" and other new films on the CBN News Channel's Midday News, Nov. 18.
