The film shows the history of when vampires used to go around biting little children. These newly born child vampires would storm through villages, threatening to expose entire vampire covens. Bella and Edward’s daughter, Renesmee, shows many of the same features of the previous vampire children. Aro and the rest of the Volturi took notice of Renesmee and threatened a war. The Cullen clan needed some help to face the Volturi so they call on other vampires for help, introducing many unfamiliar faces in this film.
Although there are many new characters in the film, the focus never strays away from Bella, Edward, and also Jacob. The film shows Bella’s transition from human to vampire and also her adjustment to life as a mother.
Director, Bill Condon, does an amazing job by not altering things from the previous films. He finds a good balance between doing the book justice and making choices that are in the film’s best interest.
“Breaking Dawn- Part 2” is definitely the best film in the series, receiving the highest rating of the five films.
