She started filming Twilight at 17 in 2008. She filmed Welcome to The Rileys just after finishing Twilight and before finishing the Welcome to the Rileys filming, she went in an international promo tour for Twilight and got a lot of backlash, a lot of bullying from people like Perez and became the center of the attention of entertainment and gossips blogs, sites and magazines. She was still just 18.
So again... we will see some film critic's reviews with a lot of these confusing images of her, mixing her performance with her real life attitude of the moment, or an episode of her life.
As I said in the first compilation, some of the reviews are in two, three or even the four listings, so the numbers of reviews will not be as great as if we added the addition all four lists.
It is very important to understand that just professionals film critics are listed here!
P - Positive review (180 reviews)
P/N - Mixed review or not gave opinion or is indifferent (30 reviews)
N - Negative review (24 reviews)
P 01 - A. O. Scott - New York Times (Top Critic) - "“The Runaways,” which takes place mainly in Southern California in the mid-1970s, evokes its moment and milieu with affectionate, almost uncanny fidelity. It’s a sun-baked teenage wasteland of muscle cars and hamburger stands, and the two young 21st-century movie stars who play the main characters seem to fit right in. Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart, who are Cherie Currie and Joan Jett, lead singer and guitarist for the band that gives the movie its name, were born a long time after the book had closed on the real-life Runaways, but the seriousness and self-confidence with which they tackle their roles goes a long way toward establishing a sense of authenticity. ....And Ms. Stewart, watchful and unassuming, gives the movie its spine and soul."
"DAVID: Well, I don't know that I should. I don't think there's very much to tell, actually. But so I went into the film with that kind of background knowledge. I found it totally fascinating and I think you're absolutely right that the two - particularly the two central woman, Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart, are amazingly good. I think they're really terrific.
MARGARET: Well, do - I think it's interesting that Kristen Stewart really has to establish herself outside the TWILIGHT series.
DAVID: Yes. Yes, sure.
MARGARET: And I think this was actually a really bold and clever move on her part.
DAVID: I agree.
MARGARET: ...going into a what is basically an independent film and really she underplays everything really, but she does it so well here. I was very impressed by her."
Some new film critics review

But in the end it all comes down to the actress, who seems, before our eyes, to be participating in the invention of a new kind of screen performance. In its various iterations, the Method has been about using voice and gesture to express a character’s deep psychological truth. Ms. Portman, like other young actors working with filmmakers who emphasize the visceral and the immediate, seems almost to reverse this process.
Which is another way of saying that she is both the black swan and the white, both the perfectly controlled performer and the pure creature of instinct.After I read it, I agreed with him and at the same moment, Kristen's several performances came to my mind. Please, I am not comparing them because it would be ridiculous! One is 30 with 20 years of experience and the other is 20 with 10 years of experience! It makes a huge difference in therms of performances and life itself.
