Lowdown: The final chapter in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" saga finds Aro (Sheen) and the Volturi arriving in Grand Forks to claim Renesmee, the fast-growing child of Bella (Stewart) and Edward (Pattinson). A stare down to end all stare downs ensues.
Gregory Ellwood says: Condon helmed the best "film" of the franchise with "Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1.," but most moviegoers outside of the hardcore fan base were looking for less romance and more drama. Expect that and much more during the last 10 minutes of "Pt. 2." Plus, Bella as vampire. Gotta be awkward when she runs into dear old dad, right?
