Most of the casting in this movie is superb. Dakota Fanning did a great job as an evil pain-throwing bitch and Michael Sheen is outstanding as the psychotic Aro. All the boy and girl vamps and shape shifters are gorgeous, lethal and wonderful.
Then we have Edward. Robert Pattison just doesn't do it for me as a sexy male vampire. I can't put my finger on it but he does not look good in pale face. Maybe it's the eyebrows. I'm scrolling through pictures of him right now and he's kind of cute, but I dunno know. He's not a vampire. Everyone razzed Kristen Stewart for her lack of expression but Edward's facial contortions remind me of someone continually trying not to laugh or cry.
Don't throw rotten fruit at me, Twilight lovers. Obviously someone likes the Edward character because the movies burned up the box office. I'm not sure who I would have cast in that role but would love to hear from anyone who thinks another actor could have done better.
