UK Press Reviews for Twlight have been excellent

As someone posted on IMDB the UK reviewers seem to like the film a lot.  Whether its the serious broadsheet newspapers, the more commercial ones or even the UK film sites. They all seem to have embraced the film and understand where it fits into the scheme of things.  The film has been getting a lot of 4 stars and even from the most hard to please reviewers.  I'm pleased but very surprised to be honest. Even the sarkiest online geeky film sites have a regard for it. The Radio 1 review adored Rob - really gushed about him.

Sweet, sticky, flagrantly hormonal, Twilight is that rare thing, a bona fide guilty pleasure. Will I be able to resist the sequel? God damn my soul to hell, I suspect not.

Even the SUN says:

Stewart and Pattinson are a quite mesmerising pair, and their twitchy, sidelong glances play out a duet of unspoken yearning that might just get under your skin.

The Daily Mail gives it 4 stars and usually Chris Tookey gives a turkey to most films. His review is a bit coolish but - 4 bloody stars! a miracle.

Digital Spy is usually very sarky but this is ok


Even IGN UK likes it
