With the Twilight series over, both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are attempting to break free of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan — but it may take a few tries before the critics recognize the duo as serious actors and not flash-in-the-pan tween sensations.

Critics have frowned on K-Stew's performance in Snow White and the Huntsman, saying the stoic actress "fails to impress" writing that her Snow White is "awkward" and "blank looking".

Boyfriend RPattz really didn't fare much better as a womanizing social ladder climber in Bel Ami.

Time magazine claims the actor "gives no hint of depth" as Georges Duroy, a man who seduces the likes of Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott-Thomas.

The New York Times is a bit more expressive, going so far to say his "strained performance" is laughable up against his more accomplished and talented female co-stars.

"This reasonably good-looking 26-year-old English actor, with his asymmetrical eyes and a doughy torso, affects a cold, reptilian sneer. Bad boys may have their appeal, but this one lacks the animal magnetism of even an amateur Lothario. To watch Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas melt under his icy ministrations is to roll your eyes in disbelief," Times critic Stephen Holden writes.

Well, at least the couple have themselves as personal cheerleaders. Kristen told reporters at Cannes that she was "really, truly impressed" with Robert's performance in Cosmopolis.

What are your thoughts? Do Kristen and Robert have what it takes to last beyond Twilight?
