I've been to see Twilight twice now. The first time was out of curiosity and in a cinema in Brussels. The second time was to accompany a friend. My youngest sister is quite a fan of the series and had been eagerly anticipating this movie, so I was a little concerned that it might not be geared towards a more "mature" audience (i.e. 30 years old as opposed to half that), but I was more than delighted with what I saw.

It is the classic teenage romance of good girl, Bella, (with slight rebellious streak) and the bad boy, Edward Cullen, (with a heart of gold). Only there's a twist. He's a vampire. Da Dah!!

However, it is the acting, ethereal cinematography and excellent soundtrack which make this film truly come to life. It is generally well-paced, although things do get a little frentic towards the climax. These two young actors embrace their roles, and it will be really interesting to see how the franchise develops as these actors mature.

Ultimately, I enjoyed this film - a lot more than I did other so-called must-see films. There's a lot more to this film than teenage female fodder.
