“Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1” premiered in Nashville at midnight on Nov. 18. As reported in Twilight skincare: What would a vampire use to protect his skin?, I saw the movie at Bellevue Cinemas which was packed with happy “Twilight” fans, some of whom I managed to interview about vampires and wolves. (See video at left)
“Breaking Dawn” begins with the extravagant wedding of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen and brings almost all the former “Twilight” cast members back for the wedding.
“Breaking Dawn” handles Bella and Edward’s much-publicized honeymoon sex scene with a fair amount of discretion with “everything covered.” Still some side shots were a little overly-revealing for a PG-13 movie, so exercise caution with young teens and preteens.
The movie is unapologetically pro-life as Bella puts her unborn baby’s welfare above everyone and everything else. The birth scene was also handled well. In the books it is a very gruesome scene, and the movie manages to convey what without showing too much. In addition, the movie manages to depict the transformation of Bella via the vampire venom in a manner I found quite fascinating.
Three points which I think will appeal to Christians:
- Bella and Edward wait until they are married to have sex
- Bella decides to bring her unborn child into the world no matter the personal cost
- Bella is brought back to life as much by the healing power of love as vampire venom
“Twilight: Breaking Dawn” has several positives worth considering, but some material is not appropriate for preteens or young teens.
