Each member of the Cullen family ranked based on their liking
Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) finishes last in sympathy for a number of reasons – and the character certainly has his die-hard fans who will be disappointed, but when you rank Cullens, it’s hard to put his personality near the Top.
Among its unsympathetic attributes are the haunting emptiness (both as a character and as a screen presence) and the goosebumps that come with it. Perhaps the least interesting of the Cullen Clan in the movies, he’s ironic given that he has the power to influence emotions, often manifested in powerful charisma. It’s Jasper’s lot in life to seem empty, and there is often not much beyond that.
While Rathbone gave an engaged physical performance, portraying Jasper as if he was in eternal agony, such hints of the swirling chaos inside the character don’t offer much to cling to. outside. The gaze is intended to convey Jasper’s struggle with his newfound “vegetarianism” (meaning only animal and non-human blood); instead of going off like a volatile bomb that could explode at any moment, however, his relentless angst at times seems to need to be relaxed.
While many other Cullens may seem intimidating (Rosalie’s temper, for example, isn’t something you would want to meet), Jasper is heavy on the creepy, light on the charisma.
