‘New Moon’ is second series of Twilight Saga which are adapted from Stephnie Meyer’s bestselling novels. Picking up where Twilight left off, ‘New Moon’ follows gloomy teenager Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart). In this movie Bella is dumped by her vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattison). He dumps her for the fear of hurting her. So Bella as goes through emotional turmoil after Edward moves away from her leaving no traces. While going through this confusion Bella finds comfort in friendship with another boy Jacob Black (played by Taylor Lautner), who is in love with Bella. But Bella isn't tdestined to have a normal relationship as it turns out the hunky Jacob Black is also not normal human. He is a werewolf. Will Edward comeback? Will Bella able to forget Edward? Will Jacob win Bella?
This film has better action sequences than the first film. The scene in which Jacob first morphs into a werewolf and leaps onto another warewolf are absolutely stunning. And also werewolves chasing the Vampires were amazing to watch. But the novels strong points were romance and drama which wasn’t came out that well in this film. And I will say it was because of average acting skills. It could have been lot better. This movie is actually nothing but a link between first and third part. It was just to help you understand next part and as per novel it has much more drama and action. So I am looking forward to it.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 7 out of 10.
