The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

post signature
There’s trouble brewing in the Twilight universe: Young people in the Seattle area are going missing, and the Cullen clan (that’s the vampire family if you haven’t been following the series) deduces that they are being turned into vampire army of newbies coming to get Bella (Kristen Stewart). But Bella (and the movie) is mostly preoccupied with her two relationships, one with Dreamy Edward the Vampire (Robert Pattinson) and one with Shirtless Jacob the Werewolf (Taylor Lautner). Soulful glances ensue.

ClearPlay In Action!

Eclipse derives its PG-13 rating mostly from fighting, violence and sultry moments of teens kissing. While ClearPlay tones down the violence by cutting bloodshed, there is still a lot of fighting. ClearPlay also cuts about nine moments of dialogue. Most of the movie deals with Bella’s burning for Edward, and while one semi-steamy scene is trimmed, her preoccupation with wanting to be changed into a vampire, and the fighting, render the ClearPlayed version less appropriate for pre-teens, and even some early teens.

Is there any bite to The Twilight Saga: Eclipse?…

For a vampire pic, Eclipse has no teeth. I know, I know, it’s aimed at tween girls… and their moms. But I spent much of the movie wondering when anything of substance was actually going to happen. So if you’re a fan, enjoy. If not, try a different rental.
