New Moon is the second installment of the Twilight Saga. Twilight fans have been waiting for New Moon to screen since the credits rose on competition of Twilight.
New Moon continues on from where Twilight left off, Isabella (Bella) Swan is left heart-brokenly devastated after vampire, Edward Cullen, the love of her life, ends their relationship and leaves their home town, Forks, Washington. Edward's departure was to ensure Bella's safety after a minor incident, on Bella's 18th birthday, that caused human blood to be seen in front of the Cullen family, causing Jasper Cullen to become overwhelmed at the scent of human blood.
Whilst Edward is away, two rusty motorbikes bring Jacob Black and Bella together and as they renew their friendship Bella learns that she lives within a town where dangerous werewolves, the ancestral enemies to the vampire, roam the Forks forests.
Bella learns that taking part in thrill-seeking activities, that normally someone so clumsy would ignore, allows her to 'hear' Edward's voice within her head. Meanwhile, Vampire, Victoria returns to Forks to seek revenge for her dead friend, James, who the Cullen's killed in Twilight. And a miscommunication in Alice's visions leads Edward to believe that Bella has committed suicide. My Verdict
The first installment, Twilight, was incredibly popular and New Moon is no different. Screening began at one minute past midnight on the 19th of November 2009 to fans all over Australia.
The Twilight saga is popular because of the classic Romeo and Juliet forbidden love tale, between vampire Edward Cullen and human teenager Bella Swan, which provides the irresistible combination of supernatural twists, romance and suspense.
Over the two hour movie we see all of the characters develop as they bring Stephenie Meyer's book to life, the most obvious transformation is that of Jacob Black. Jacob grows as does the relationship between him and Bella.
The dangerous werewolves that protect the forests of Forks are visually real and the eyes of the wolf are compelling believable, you can see the character behind the fur. Although ultimately a story of supernatural, New Moon draws you in and makes you consider it as reality.
The performance of the actors, Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson are yet again credible whilst New Moon director, Chris Weitz, has added humour to the storyline, something Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight, did not do.
The second installment of Twilight, New Moon certainly had a larger budget than the first; the film is visually brighter and the fight scenes are more intense than seen in the first movie.
New Moon is not only a movie for fans of the Twilight Saga, the ending will definitely leave you wanting more, especially as it ends on a very important question
All audiences will be waiting for the third installment, Eclipse.
