More Info:
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Fan-ready and saga-solid.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Mopey, draggy, and absurdly self-important, the movie nonetheless twangs at some resonant affective chord. This viewer, at least, was catapulted back to that moment of adolescence when being mopey, draggy, and absurdly self-important felt like a passionate act of liberation.

    Slate Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Why does “New Moon” basically work, even with its grave self-seriousness? A few reasons. Weitz lets the material breathe, and his actors interact. The film does not try to eat you alive.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Given this swoon-inducer, Summit Entertainment would be well-advised to set up fainting couches in the multiplex lobby and provide smelling salts to those who need them.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    May be one of the most fun-free, angst-ridden teens we've seen on the big screen in a long time.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Once again, the three young leads give committed performances, with Lautner's character allowed a larger share of the spotlight this time around.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jordan Mintzer

    Carried by Kristen Stewart's compellingly dark performance, but also by helmer Chris Weitz's robust visuals.

    Variety Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The werewolves have it all over the blood-suckers in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. When these oversize, hirsute creatures burst onto the screen, they inject life into a rather inert story.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Despite melodrama that, at times, is enough to induce diabetes, there's enough wolf whistle in this sexy, scary romp to please anyone.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Weitz takes a looser approach than the series’ last director, Catherine Hardwicke, did. He has a better sense of humor, too.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    If you buy in to the central romance, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll swoon. Otherwise, the lingering glances, lip-chewing and regular de-shirting may cause uncontrollable giggles.

    Empire Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    Is this sequel defending its fan base and preempting criticism about its transparent agenda? This IS a soap opera, folks--and acceptable escapism for those old enough to see it yet still young enough to shriek at undead dreamboats.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Constrained by the plot of the novel, the film keeps the two lovers apart for quite a spell, robbing the project of the crazy-in-love energy that made "Twilight," the first entry in the series, such a guilty pleasure.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    More solidly crafted and insults its audience quite a bit less than its predecessor, and it sets up several nice emotionally complicated cliffhangers for the next installment. I hope its target audience has a blast.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Ever since "True Blood" glamoured me, Twilight seems even more sexless and toothless. I prefer my undead with a little life in them.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    In the sequel, Weitz lays on a pop song and slow-motion during a critical scene involving the sudden reappearance of a fearsome villain, giving everything an MTV-slick, teen-friendly gloss and reminding you this is just a movie -- a somewhat silly and hollow one.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Let's just say it: It's great there's a movie that makes teenage girls scream. Half the movies Hollywood makes are designed to make teenage boys scream, and those boy movies are just as ridiculous and a lot nastier than New Moon.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Where the first film’s director, Catherine Hardwicke, plugged into Meyer’s vision of supernatural teenage lust with abandon, Chris Weitz is stuck with a sequel that’s a morning-after mope-fest.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The storyline is all over the place, with numerous unresolved subplots sprouting out of thin air and being left hanging (presumably to be resolved in future movies).

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Actress Kristen Stewart – coolly intense, androgynous, and intelligent – remains the series' strongest asset, as Bela, the emotional centre of the story.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Jessica Hopper

    The movie's script and production values represent a big step up from the nearly unwatchable predecessor and make it suitable viewing even for people who aren't Twilight nerds.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It probably won't make a jot of difference to all the screaming tweeners lining up to see this movie, but The Twilight Saga: New Moon is not wonderful.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    In spite of its wealth of conflict, New Moon suffers from a dearth of accompanying tension and excitement, thanks to the increasingly tedious relationship at its center.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Weitz’s pacing is so limp you’re going to need the electricity generated by a live audience to keep from yelling, “Hurry it up!”

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The big tease turns into the long goodbye in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the juiceless, near bloodless sequel.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    New Moon is supposed to be an exciting love story plus monster action. So where’s the excitement? Where’s the action?

    New York Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The sequel to the 2008 hit “Twilight” makes no effort to satisfy outsiders. It's strictly for devotees who won't balk at plot absurdities, clunky dialogue and patchy characterizations.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    I’m told Bella’s helplessness is true to the spirit of the novels, but so what? It’s almost 2010 – let’s get hip, people.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    New Moon, on the other hand, merely follows a dictated formula. It's a cheap, shoddy piece of work, one that banks on moviegoers' anticipation without even bothering to craft a satisfying experience for them. Its pandering is an insult. Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Chaste, oddly bloodless, and nearly plotless saga.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The Twilight Saga: New Moon takes the tepid achievement of "Twilight" (1988), guts it, and leaves it for undead.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jessica Baxter

    It’s intellectually and socially detrimental to both literature and cinema, simultaneously.
