Breaking Dawn: Part 1 really doesn't have a whole lot to work with and director Bill Condon can't make anything of it.The film's run time is 105 minutes, and even though that is under 2 hours, it still comes out as a long tedious journey. Seriously, the most intriguing part of this picture are the last couple minutes, which includes the scene embedded in the closing credits. It takes extremely long for the plot to pick up, and even then there isn't much to sit up for.The action is brief and forgettable, much like the first hour of this movie. It doesn't help much when the violence between vampires and werewolves is held in check.With a story without much intrigue, the nonchalant acting fits right in. That isn't a positive. Watching Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for nearly the entire first hour is torturous. The characters have no range of emotion and that hurts.Breaking Dawn: Part 1 is not an enjoyable sit through and the only reason for the viewing is to fill in the gap between Eclipse and Breaking Dawn: Part 2.

Okay, so you're girlfriend/boyfriend/"special friend", wants to see Breaking Dawn, part 2 and you don't. But if you downright refuse, you know their is going to be hell to pay. So what do you do? You watch the film as a comedy. But Ken!? Twilight isn't a comedy! It's a mela-dramatic "romance" about "vampires". Well that's where you're wrong. Breaking Dawn part 1, is like the fever dream of a 12-year-old bi-polar girl. Everything is turned up way past 11, to the rarely used "Mexican Soap Opera" setting. The histrionics of this film makes Showgirls look like it was directed by Ozu. Simply hilarious. I am, in no way, shape or form, saying this is a good movie. But, in the right frame of mind, it can be very entertaining. Oh and the cinematography is GORGEOUS. So there's that. But come on, how many movies do you get to see a vampire-teeth Cesarean AND a werewolf fall in love with a baby?
