Much takes place in this next-to-last Twilight film, but the problem is that despite the massive amount of material that needs to be shown on screen in order to keep Twihards happy, the film itself is...yes...a little boring.
The Blu-ray and 2-Disc DVD Release
The Bonus Features
The DVD and Blu-ray releases also contain a six-part, hour and a half 'Making of' documentary that explores different aspects of the film. The documentary takes us behind the scenes of the wedding, explaining how the dress was designed and then kept a secret, and reveals the special guests who were invited to be included as wedding guests for that highly anticipated scene. We're also given an in-depth look at how Bill Condon and the special effects team were able to take the already skinny Kristen Stewart and make her look as though she was nothing but skin and bones. The documentary, which is the best extra content on the DVD/Blu-ray, also includes details on the wolves, the honeymoon, and the birth scene.
Additional bonus features include "Jacob's Destiny" which looks at the growth and maturity of Taylor Lautner's character. Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella's Wedding Video is a goofy 10 minute featurette that has the cast in character wishing the newlyweds well as part of a video diary of the wedding day.
The Bottom Line
The film transitions from the big to small screen retaining its crisp colors, and the audio quality is first-rate (of course it's better on the Blu-ray). And while the extra features aren't as fleshed out as we'd hoped they'd be at this point in the Twilight franchise, that's likely due to the fact Summit's saving up some of the best features for the final DVD and Blu-ray definitive collection which is sure to come following Breaking Dawn Part 2's release in theaters. But it's unlikely that anything will keep Twihards away from picking this fourth Twilight film up on DVD or Blu-ray now. Because even if there is a boxed set coming later, it's still a year or more away from being released - and what diehard fan could possibly wait that long for their Bella and Edward fix?
