Consensus: Stuffed with characters and overly reliant on uninspired dialogue, Eclipse won't win The Twilight Saga many new converts, despite an improved blend of romance and action fantasy.

The biggest problem remains the characters: neither Slade nor Stewart are capable of turning manipulative whinger Bella into anything more than a joyless black hole sucking the life from every scene.

As always, the biggest screams emanating from the audience come when Lautner bares his chest.

This third "Twilight" film eclipses its predecessors but its anti-climactic story and its melodramatic tendencies still hold it back."

I can't pretend that the third episode instilled a fever in my blood, but it didn't leave me cold. For the first time in the series I felt I'd seen a real movie.

The choice of whether to see Eclipse isn't really a question of whether the movie is good or bad. It's a question of whether or not the movie speaks to your secret, unregulated, inherently ridiculous experience of identification and desire.

Edward is cold and controlling: the archetype of an abusive partner and Jacob just acts like a rapist in training, he keeps trying to kiss Bella against her will.

In a rare moment of insight, the teenage but immortal vampires in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse complain about being "frozen" in their lives, unable to "move forward." So is everyone involved in this deathtrap of a franchise.

Director David Slade keeps the action brisk and the time-killing attractive ... All of which should be like a freshly opened vein for fans.

[For] "Eclipse," it was easy to go through the list of old complaints and check them off one by one as the film progressed, including a story that leads absolutely nowhere.
