No matter. Hardwicke and her casting director also deserve credit for spotting the nascent star-power in Stewart and Pattinson, who have used their fame to greenlight many an art-house movie, regularly appearing on the red carpet at Cannes. Hardwicke ran chemistry tests between Stewart and four potential co-stars.
Then they clicked.
At certain points, Pattinson and Stewart were lovers on screen and off, which perhaps added to the veracity. Certainly, young women were happy to wait through three-and-a-half films before the relationship was consummated in a bed-breaking honeymoon scene after a glitzy wedding in Breaking Dawn I.
At Its Core, the 'Twilight' Saga Is a Story About ________
For many fans, the films were not about abstinence, but everlasting foreplay. Looked at through the lens of the MeToo generation, there is something to be said for a boy who is not pressuring a teenage girl to have sex. But many feminists just said no to Twilight and claimed the vampire was merely a metaphor for the dangers of pre-marital sexual intercourse. Where is her independent streak with Edward that she displays so fervently with her father and friends? Of course, the later films became all about who would be the best and most self-sacrificial protector of Bella — Edward or the werewolf Jacob Black played by the increasingly muscled Taylor Lautner.
In Breaking Dawn I, she courageously handles the gruesome problems of giving birth to a hybrid human-vampire baby, but by Breaking Dawn II, she takes on vampire shape herself, and arm-wrestles the rest of the Cullen coven into submission, just after she has chased a mountain lion and sunk her teeth into its jugular. In the end, Bella is active and empowered, a leader in battle, and the Twi-hards loved it.
Hardwicke quietly slipped some of her own politics into the first film, too, particularly when it came to casting a few actors or colour, who were not in the books, which depicted all vampires with pale, white, glittering skin. The werewolves of the Quileute Tribe were mostly Native American. My hope is that the sequels are actual attempts at movies. The world doesn't need any more toothless cinema. Laremy Legel. A deeply sincere, outright goofy vampire romance for the hot-not-to-trot abstinence set.
Manohla Dargis. In a film of this kind a great deal depends on the chemistry between the lead actors, and here Twilight falls especially short. Jake Wilson. Some will find it all too polite, but compared to rival blockbuster exercises in explosive CGI mayhem, its character-based index of longing and protectiveness at least provides a viable alternative moodscape. Trevor Johnston. The two hormonal teenagers sizzle like sausages in a frying pan.

The supernatural stunts don't disappoint. Neither does the deadpan wit. James Christopher. It is, in its unworldly way, sweetly idealistic with a charm all of its own: a teen romance to get your teeth into.

Peter Bradshaw. Anyone who has not read the book may find themselves bewildered, or at least a little confused, without some of the nuances of the book to fill it out. Matthew Lucas. Like most great psychological lessons in the hands of novices, this is a story far more interested in dancing to rhythms than understanding melody. David Keyes. Ten years after its release, Twilight stands as a powerful, darkly stylish depiction of teen female desire.
The orthodox blood-drinking vampires Eileen Jones. Twilight is an earnest fantasy set on the cusp of adulthood, just as the way the light falls on everything in your life is changing. I don't blame anyone who wants to linger there for a moment. Even with sparkle vampires.
