Eclipse Review — Richard Roeper Says Eclipse Is “One Of the Most Astonishing Upgrades in Movie Franchise History”

Richard Roeper has to be one of the toughest critics around. And if you can impress him, that is certainly saying something about the movie. Roeper recently gave his ‘grade’ for Eclipse, and this is what he had to say -

“The first Twilight movie was mediocre and the second one was just laughable and melodramatic and over the top and ridiculous, so I didn’t have high expectations for this one,” said Roeper. “I have to say, this represents one of the most astonishing upgrades in movie franchise history.”
In his review, Roeper attributes this clear improvement, in part, to director, David Slade, and says all three leads raised their game, most notably, Kristen Stewart who’s character is more involved in this movie’s action.
“I can almost not believe I’m going to say this, but this is one of the better movies of the year,” adds Roeper. “It’s really well done, well directed, well acted, has great camera work and a terrific soundtrack.”
Slade is a genius. Pure genius.
