Hollywood.com – 2 Stars
Thomas Leupp of Hollywood.com movie reviews has released his Twilight Eclipse movie review. Giving it two stars out of five, Leupp is another not-so-positive Twilight Eclipse review. “With more action and humor than either of its predecessors, Eclipse is the best Twilight movie thus far. But that doesn’t mean its good.” You can check out the full Eclipse review on Hollywood.com here.
Roger Ebert – 2 Stars
The Roger Ebert Twilight Eclipse movie review also gave the feature only two stars. Ebert’s Eclipse review richly details the plot line of Eclipse, and then comments on the Twilight Saga’s style as a whole. “The “Twilight” movies are chaste eroticism to fuel adolescent dreams, and are really about Bella being attracted and titillated and aroused and tempted up to the … very … brink! … of surrender, and then, well, no, no, she shouldn’t.” Read the full Roger Ebert Twilight Eclipse movie review here!
The Hollywood Reporter
Not all the Twilight Eclipse reviews coming in today are negative. In Kirk Honeycutt’s Eclipse movie review, done for The Hollywood Reporter, he calls this Twilight Saga installment an “entertaining mix of romance and action fantasy”.
Honeycutt also points out a new sort of levity emerging in the Twilight series in his Eclipse review. “The film doesn’t mind kidding itself. Edward takes one look at Jacob and complains to Bella, ‘Doesn’t he own a shirt?’ “
Los Angeles Times – 3.5 Stars
Betsey Sharkey, LA Times Film Critic, adds to the fairly-positive Twilight Eclipse reviews, saying the flick “is back with all of the lethal and loving bite it was meant to have.” Sharkey commented that new Twilight director, David Slade, is likely the reason for the new life Eclipse seems to have been given. She gives the more grown-up Twilight Saga episode three and a half out of five stars.
