James, the coven leader and a tracker, sets his sights on Bella. what will they do when a clan of new vampires – James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi) and Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre) – come to town and threaten to disrupt their way of life?
Twilight is the first film in the Twilight film
series and has caused quite a following. Rated PG-13 due to some scenes of sexuality and violence, it may not be suitable for everyone.
Twilight however, is good and getting you “hooked”. The special effects are sometimes cheesy, especially when Edward carries Bella on his back as he runs at lighten speed but, the love story is so relatable to teenagers that it captures the hearts of everyone who sees the film.
I would reccomend this film to anyone looking for a romantic,Fantasy/Suspenseful drama film , and hope it draws you into the frenzy known as Twilight.
