'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' The worst 'Twilight' movie yet

Terrible acting trips up a plodding plot

Eric Helton

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is the worst Twilight movie yet, says Peter Travers. The picture is actually hurt by having a good director – Gods and Monsters and Dream Girls filmmaker Bill Condon – who focuses the camera on the faces of the actors, who are all far too blank and seem helpless in close ups. Taylor Lautner is the worst of the bunch, often looking less like a sexy werewolf and more "like a petulant five-year-old." Also, Peter Travers wants to know: What are the best and worst Twilight movies? Let him know in the comments below, on Twitter or via e-mail.
