Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is no longer torn between Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and Edward (Robert Pattinson). She is now happily married to Edward Cullen, she's a vampire, and she's the mother to their beautiful daughter Renesmee. Jacob is still around, though a close family friend, and not a threat to Edward. Initially things are going well for the vampires, however problems arise when the Volturi, a powerful group of vampires who enforce the laws, find out that Renesmee was conceived and carried while Bella was a mortal; she is half-human/ half-vampire. This is very rare, and a threat in the vampire world. To prevent an attack from the Volturi, the Cullens gather Vampire clans from around the world to witness their daughter's innocence. So now the Cullens, their allies, and the wolf pack are prepared meet with the Volturi, hoping for a peaceful resolution. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, is the fifth and final movie in the Twilight series, a movie the Twi-hards will most likely enjoy. 

I love the strong family dynamics in this film and the whole series. Bella and her father have an endearing relationship. The Cullen's are a very close knit family as well.
The closing credits featured all the actors that have appeared in a Twilight movie. This was very well done, a nice way to wrap up the series.
I thought the first half of the movie was very corny, but it gradually got better.
This was not my favorite Twilight film, though I interviewed people after the movie, and they all liked it. From teenagers to adults, they thought it was their favorite of the series.
I read that this film had a hard time avoiding an R rating due to the violent content.
Sexual Content: Moderate
• We saw Bella and Edward in bed making love, their first time as a vampire couple. This was a very sensual scene with romantic music in the background. We saw bare backs and legs.
• There are sexual comments about vampire couples breaking the furniture while in a sexual encounter.
• In one scene Jacob took off his clothes, though not his boxers. The audience liked that!!!

Violent Content: Excessive
• The battle between the Cullens and the Volturi was very graphic. We saw a lot of decapitations and dead bodies all over.
• We saw a vampire woman being forced to kneel before a fire; her head was twisted until it snapped off. She and her child were thrown into a fire to burn.
• We saw a child with blood dripping down his chin.
• A vampire attacked a human in an alley, throwing him to the ground and biting his neck.
• Bella attacked a mountain lion and bit his neck.

Crude or Profane Language: Mild
• "A--," and "h---," were said.

Drugs and Alcohol Content: Mild
• We see Bella's dad drinking a beer.

Will Kids Like It? Yes
Twi-hards will most likely see this movie. Some may like it, some may not. Though the Twilight Saga has come to a conclusion, the vampires will live forever!!! Parents need to be aware of the excessive violence. Depending on the child, this film is appropriate for kids ages 12 and up.
