Breaking Dawn Part 2 is an excellent movie!

This story features newlyweds Edward and Bella Cullen, who now have a daughter: Renesme Carlie Cullen. When the Volturi think that Renesme is an immortal child, everyone's life is in danger. We watched this movie for my 12th birthday, and our family really liked it. The acting was unbelievable, the plot was very original, and the ending was sweet. So.... Why was this movie PG-13? This movie has very heavy violence (We didn't see this part; my parents made me skip it, but it was pretty obvious.) As for romance, there is nothing that mature (Nothing compared to Breaking Dawn Part 1) No language, no drinking/drugs/smoking, not much consumerism (Edward's silver Volvo is the extent of it) If you have read the book, I highly recommend this movie.

Twilight the best movie of all times

I love the movies all of them but there are some scenes that kids 14+ up should only watch really good series family watch.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
