Marcus and his "Finally" (I think that's the word he used, it all went so fast) was when I knew how much Stephenie was involved in planning the battle. Only big fans of the book would know why he wanted to die.corona wrote:Don't tell me for one second that that just happened and Stephenie wasn't sending a message. She had her fingers in everything going on in that battle, and I love her for it.
This is the great thing about that last battle. In the book, SM finally elevated her characters above the story itself. She loved her characters more than the story and couldn't let any of them die. Now, in the movie, she can continue to tell the story and reveal even more about her characters while still keeping them ultimately safe.
Marcus finally gets his wish. Bella and Edward team up beautifully on Aro. I couldn't have asked for more. I think that was a Kasumi-style Dead or Alive tap dance on Aro's head. Cool, very cool, I was ready to get my Xbox controller out and have Bella do a back-kick.
I always say that book imagery is always better than what a movie could make, but I don't think I could have ever pictured such an amazing battle if it was written on paper.
