This is it, guys.
This is the end.
Tomorrow, the final Twilight film will be released in theaters, ending the saga of Edward and Bella for good. (Or at least until Stephenie Meyer decides it's time to purchase her own island and writes a sequel.) Will Breaking Dawn Part 2 live up to the other films in the series? Will it somehow surpass them to become the best of the franchise? Or will it be a total letdown?
As a general rule, sequels seldom surpass the original in terms of quality, and the final film in any series tends to be the last for a reason. (Usually, because it’s not good.) In honor of the culmination of the Twilight saga, let’s take a look back at other blockbuster film franchises and see whether or not the final installment lived up to expectations.
