Here are two from the critics:

"The movie is lush and beautiful, and the actors are well-chosen," writes Roger Ebert. " 'Twilight' will mesmerize its target audience, 16-year-old girls and their grandmothers. Their mothers know all too much about boys like this. I saw it at a sneak preview. Last time I saw a movie in that same theater, the audience welcomed it as an opportunity to catch up on gossip, texting, and laughing at private jokes. This time the audience was rapt with attention — I understand who 'Twilight' appeals to, and it sure will."

Entertainment Weekly reviewer Owen Gleiberman perhaps sums things up best, reminding us that if you're a grown-up who doesn't enjoy Stephenie Meyer's prose — big surprise! — you probably won't dig the film either. "[Hardwicke] has reconjured Meyer's novel as a cloudburst mood piece filled with stormy skies, rippling hormones, and understated visual effects," Gleiberman writes. "What Hardwicke can't quite triumph over is the book's lackluster plot. On screen, 'Twilight' is repetitive and a tad sodden, too prosaic to really soar. But Hardwicke stirs this teen pulp to a pleasing simmer."
