Consensus: The Twilight Saga's second installment may satisfy hardcore fans of the series, but outsiders are likely to be turned off by its slow pace, relentlessly downcast tone, and excessive length.

So long as there are people, there will be love stories -- I hope they all feel as lush and lively as this one.

A landmark cinematic event in 280 words, or one for every $500,000 of weekend box office.

Entertaining for what it is and the alpha male werewolves end up being a lot more fun than the brooding, moody vampires.

It has an amazing kind of emotional integrity and intensity.

Jeff Beck

The brooding and sulking is so palpable in "New Moon," the latest film in the Twilight series, that you could probably cut it with a knife. If the filmmakers thought that this would be enough to carry a film for over two hours, they were sadly mistaken.

If only director Chris Weitz had managed to tease out the real drama -- Bella's fear of aging -- instead of a tired one.

Weitz's pacing is so limp you're going to need the electricity generated by a live audience to keep from yelling, "Hurry it up!"

Michael Dequina

Ostensible heroine Bella is such a weak, needy, pathetic co-dependent who stirs up so much sh*t for those she purportedly loves that it's hard to muster much rooting interest for her.

OK now this franchise just got really silly, the first film was actually OK in a dumb kiddie kind of way but this sequel is just dumber and VERY frustrating.… More

This second instalment is a pretty terrible sequel, and does not live up to it's predecessor in any way whatsoever. The cinematography is still just as… More

A slight improvement (albeit almost insignificant) over the first movie, with a few things that do work, but the lame, uninteresting main couple (along with… More
