Top movie critics give ‘New Moon’ movie unimpressive reviews. Summit Entertainment’s new blockbuster, “Twilight Saga: New Moon” hit the theaters today. However, the top movie critics in the business don’t appear to be impressed with the film. It mostly got Cs and absolutely no As.
Ty Burr from the Boston Globe gave it a C. He said, “Sorry, girls: The thrill is gone.”
Roger Ebert from the Chicago Sun-Times gave it a D,stating, “You know you’re in trouble with a sequel when the word of mouth advises you to see the first movie twice instead.”
Geoff Berkshire over at the Chicago Tribune gave it a C rating. He stated, “…about as sluggish a teen movie you can find.”
Sean O’Connell from Filmcritic.com rated it a C. He said, “…joins a handful of sequels that are significantly better than their predecessors yet still substandard.”
Michael Rechtshaffen from Hollywood Reporter gave it a B-. He said, “Although playing it safe, this slightly improved sequel is destined to make an even bigger b.o. killing.”
Kenneth Turan at the Los Angeles Times gave it a C rating. He stated, that it “…marks the franchise’s entrance into the self-protective, don’t rock the boat phase of its existence, which is inevitable but a bit of a shame.”
Kyle Smith from the New York Post gave it a D+. He said, “This movie moves like the line at the post office.”
Peter Travers at Rolling Stone gave it a C. He stated, “I prefer my undead with a little life in them.”
Mick Lasalle from the San Francisco Chronicle gave it a C+. He said, it was “…to its credit, it’s never an unpleasant experience, and at well over two hours, it’s never really boring, either, just intermittently ridiculous…”
USA Today’s Claudia Puig gave it a B-. She said, “Though an improvement over the first Twilight film, this sequel… drags and sputters, even in scenes meant to be infused with passion.”
Oh,well. I’ll still go check it out.
