Rated PG-13, 115 mins.
IMDB User Rating: 5.9
Metascore: 52/100 (User Score: 4.0)
Tomatometer: 47%, Rotten (Audience: 88%)

Movie Notebook: 6.00/10
Recommendation: B - Recommended
Grade: GT - Watch if you want to have a Good Time

Whilst this is the best movie of the franchise, still the same weaknesses are evident. The dull spiels and the inconsistent "vampire-look" pulls down the satisfactory turn of events. The cheesy moments were far better portrayed than the previous installments--perfectly brewed, not much nor less. Michael Sheen delivers a wonderful performance even for a flick like this. This surpasses expectations, if you are the watcher who has put the threshold knee level.

After watching this movie:
You'll somehow feel more passionate.

For your consideration:

  • Acting: Michael Sheen as Aro
  • Soundtrack
  • Cinematography

Movie Notebook Score: 7.00
Recommendation: C - Selectively Recommended
Grade: ST - Watch if you can't Sleep

While the cast and directing proves a job well done, especially by Robert De Niro, Paul Dano, and director Paul Weitz, the common movie-goer would be expected not to finish watching this film. Admittedly not perfect but the sentimentality that emanates from it will lower your emotional threshold for drama.

After watching this film:
You might want to look at your own relationships.

For your consideration;
  • Acting: Robert De Niro as Jonathan Flynn
  • Acting: Paul Dano as Nick Flynn
  • Directing: Paul Weitz
