August Rush Reviews

Page 1 of 7
Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

Essentially an extended music video, and with about as much narrative weight, August Rush is empty, flat, and pointless.

A music box trying to pass itself off as an orchestra.

A heartwarming fairy-tale that is undeniably sweet, even if it occasionally crosses over into sappiness.

"The only thing astounding about this movie is how bad it is."

Someone in Hollywood must have it in for Thanksgiving. How else to explain the cruelly timed release of August Rush, a wretched confection that only the most determined will be able to count among their blessings?

While many films require a suspension of disbelief, August Rush asks viewers to terminate their disbelief without severance and have security escort it from the building.

Its almost desperate earnestness actually turns out to be its greatest appeal -- August Rush does believe in fairy tales, it does it does it does!

August Rush kind of feels like a 2-hour coming attractions preview. Lots of fragmented stuff happens, without ever connecting the dots in between.

...warmly affecting at times and almost unbearably saccharine at others.

It doesn't matter if you love music or inspirational stories or Robin Williams (anyone?) -- this is enough to make your teeth ache.

More fable than film, there is no earthly reason why August Rush should work. But it does.

Urban Cinefile

It's far-fetched and a leap of faith of Olympic proportions is required to keep abreast of the plot, but August Rush does deliver some charming moments, largely due to charismatic performances from Keri Russell and Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Uplifting and heart warming, this is a perfect date movie.

A lot like a conventional musical, but the story is not conventional, it is mystically romantic.

The excellent actors and good music make you think the movie will get better as it progresses, but it never does.

"August Rush" is a familiar, yet entertaining experience that works mostly because of the wonderful cast and the haunting mix of music.

However predictable, a good ol' fashioned happy ending is always welcome. But bring a box of tissues: A good cry is to be expected as well.

If it weren't for the wonderful soundtrack, Nick Castle and James Hart's screenplay wouldn't have made it past the slush pile.

Nauseating drama with poor direction, dodgy performances and a sappy, cliche-laden script.

An honorable failure -- maybe even a noble one. Certainly, it's an ambitious one. But it is a failure.
