One of the biggest and most pleasant surprises about “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is the return of some well-needed humor to the franchise. After the oh, so serious events in “New Moon” its refreshing to see almost all the characters in the “Twilight” universe have a sense of humor about themselves and the events around them. The other joy of the picture are some well deserved spotlights on some secondary characters; most notably Nikki Reed’s Rosalie and Jackson Rathbone’s Jasper.
Talking to Reed with her co-stars Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser, this pundit had to let the “Thirteen” actress know that she provided my favorite moment in the movie during Rosalie’s backstory. It would be cruel to spoil it, but it’s a wonderful beat that got a huge response in the screening I sat in precisely because it’s so unexpected in a “Twilight” film (and that’s a compliment). The trio also discuss the bumps and bruises that accompany training for the numerous fight scenes in the film.
