When Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) reluctantly moved to the perpetually overcast town of Forks, WA, and set out to carve a niche for herself, she assumed it would be one similar to the low-profile social position she held back in Phoenix. First on the list of surprises was the unfamiliar attention from the male population of her new high school; second, the attention from one male in particular: Edward Cullen, Vampire (Robert Pattinson). Before long, the unlikely soul mates find themselves in a passionate relationship with a variety of significant setbacks, including Edward's special-needs… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"My hope is that the sequels are actual attempts at movies. The world doesn't need any more toothless cinema."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"I succumbed to the palpable chemistry between the leads, and remembered my own girlish fantasies with something of a head-spinning rush."
‑ Ruth Hessey, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"Unless you're a 14-year-old girl who gets all giddy at the thought of cute boys and first love, steer clear of Thirteen director Catherine Hardwicke's anemic adaptation."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"I've had mosquito bites that were more passionate than this undead, unrequited, and altogether unfun pseudo-romantic riff on Romeo and Juliet."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Cinema.com: A densely erotic, twisted take on teen screen romance, Twilight zones out beneath the crushing weight of underage lust intensified and complicated by the excruciating abstention here of unorthodox vampire appetites."
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Radio
"A deeply sincere, outright goofy vampire romance for the hot-not-to-trot abstinence set."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"I think this film is definitely a victim of it's own expectations."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Yes, it's strongly geared to the teen audience, but don't hold it against the filmmakers and go in with any preconceived notions and you'll find it a fun opening chapter of a new franchise."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Its built-in fanbase (thanks to the best-selling novel) is ready to swoon. I'm not one of those swooners but even I had a great time indulging in the earnest urgency."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"...the film has been infused with a deliberate pace that proves instrumental in establishing (and perpetuating) the source material's very specific atmosphere."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Some will find it all too polite, but compared to rival blockbuster exercises in explosive CGI mayhem, its character-based index of longing and protectiveness at least provides a viable alternative moodscape."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Unfortunately, it just didn't work."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"It's not the stunts and derring-do which excite the senses as much as the quiet chemistry between Stewart and Pattinson; that is guaranteed to get your blood up."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
"Twilight really does have an infatuation with surface beauty, especially where the vampires are concerned. In fact they sum up the film pretty well. It's a fašade, an appealing one to people who share the right appetites, but that's all."
‑ Joshua Starnes, ComingSoon.net
"Romantic, smart, likable and often quite funny, without any tacked-on snarkiness or desperate hipness."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
