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.

    it was horrible! dont get me wrong i love twilight and read the books repatatively! But the movies sucked!! acting was horrible, but not my all members. i think kristen stewart is a horrible actress! robb was ok not good but not as bad as kristen. i thought that taylor lautner was a perfect pick for jacob and i absolutely loved him! what also made me mad was they cut jacobs time down! i mean come on this is his movie! it was like edward left then suddenly, oh shes in italy!! where did all the jacob scenes go? i loved the book. horrified by the movie.

    It is a really really bad movie and story line. Bella is so infatuated with this pale being it makes you sick to your stomac. Come on, she spends like 3 months cryind and being depress, screams at night, do things that puts her life at risk just to see him (allucinations= schizophrenic) AND OH YES she pick him even when shes so dumb that believes him when he tolde her that she didn’t want to be with him? Man this is a terrible movie and the books, well i think the author is a women that believes no matter how bad he treats you he loves you! YES PICK HIM! BE SUICIDAL! aghhh what a waste of time
