Alice sees the Volturi and Irina coming as they planned to kill the Cullens, and the next day they leaves with Jasper, instructing to gather witnesses who can testify that Renesmee is not an immortal. The witnesses must be gathered before the snow covers the ground, because this will be the time when the Volturi will come. The Cullens begins to call witnesses, such as the Denali family. Denali and Eleazar, later encounters that Bella has a special skill which is a powerful mental shield, which she use to defend others from mental attacks like those from Jane and Alec.

As some of their potential witnesses are attacked and prevented from supporting the Cullens, Carlisle and Edward soon realize they have to fight the Volturi, in spite of their desire to avoid the fight. Some of the witnesses vacillate, but eventually agree to stand with them in battle, having realized the Volturi increase the Guard by falsely accusing covens of crimes to gain vampires with gifts.

The Volturi arrive, led by Aro, who is eager to obtain the gifted members of the Cullen coven as part of his guard. Renesmee allowed Aro to touch Renesmee, so that Aro may know that she is not an immortal child. Irina takes full responsibility of her mistake, which is the major cause of her immediate death. Her sisters restrained at the time of picking a fight. Even though the entire blunder has been then settled, Aro still insists that in the coming future Renesmee may pose a risk. Alice and Jasper materialize to attest to the presence of other children like Renesmee, and Alice shows the vision of the future to Aro. Aro refuses to change his decision after watching the vision, and a battle ensues, during which both sides undergo heavy casualties, with most of the Volturi dying. Some of the major characters who die in the vision are (for the Cullens) Carlisle (killed by Aro), Jasper (killed by Demetri and Felix), Seth (killed by Felix), Leah (sacrificed herself to save Esme) and (for the Volturi) Aro (killed by Bella and Edward), Jane (killed by Sam), Alec (killed by Emmett), Caius (killed by the Denali Coven), Marcus (willingly killed by Vladimir and Stefan), Demetri (killed by Edward) and Felix (unknown if he was killed, possibly by Leah Clearwater). As soon as the vision ends, Alice discloses to Aro that the vision will come to pass if Aro maintains his chase of Renesmee. Then the other two witnesses arrive: a fully grown vampire-human hybrid and his aunt who have been living peacefully and undetected for 150 years, proving Renesmee a threat free. Jasper and Alice was searching for the vampire-human hybrid who reveals that in these seven years they are fully grown and hasn’t changed since. Finally realizing Renesmee poses no threat and for the sake of self-protection, the guards of Aro retreat by the orders of disgraced Aro but not without giving one last and final look to Alice and Bella.

Customer Reviews for the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

◘ Positive Feedback

  1. According to me it is 4 star movie because I’m rounding up from the 3.5 it probably deserves. Seriously I don’t like the first hour and a quarter of the movie as it was cheesy and of horrible lines but what I think the acting is much better than the rest. Only the last 20 minutes of the movie saves it and I only will see the movie for those last 20 minutes.
  2. I seriously don’t know how I say through the entire movie. The acting is so dreadful. I can’t believe some people actually likes the movie, the only part that saves the entire movie is the ending alone. Also I like the acting of the two actors Lautner and Sheen with the terrible dialogues they use in the whole movie. Source for the Positive Feedback

◘ Negative Feedback

  1. The movie has awesome twist and the last 20 minutes of the movie made it worth watching. If I will watch the movie again I will watch it for the last 20 minutes. The whole series of the movies were great especially for ages 10.
  2. I just love the movie Twilight and Breaking Dawn 2, but for other twilight films it had no use. And yes the house that Cullens built for Bella and Edward is just awesome.
