Love Actually Reviews
That being said, I don't know how it'll feel watching this in the spring or summer.

Love actually has one of the best ensemble casts you can find in modern cinema. What catches the eye are the stories of Hugh Grant( you will see no Prime Minister like this ever again) and Liam Neesom while the rest are simply just there. The story of Laura Linney turned out to be pointless and misplaced and the story of Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightly seems to be too racist for this sugar coated thriller. Richard Curtis has directed this thriller aptly and actor Bill Nighy gives a terrific performance.
(Full review coming soon)
Love Actually is just about an excellent Romcom which balances that
Romance and Comedy perfectly to be one of the highest rated ever. A
great film with some great actors and cameos with a great writer
,director and story which well just goes together perfectly. In my
review I'll tell you why overall I found this to be a great piece of
cinema and why you should watch it too if you haven't.
The story is intertwined and lot's of things go on at once, this makes
for one interesting piece which I am sure you find delightful and heart
warming at the same time. It is more romantic than funny but the humour
flows at times and you can feel yourself laughing a lot and then
feeling sorry for someone because there sad too, it has it's moments.
Another thing with the story is that the intertwining doesn't confuse
you and the characters always know each other but not too much to
bother them in there side of the love mega triangle.
I loved the acting of the various actors on show with such people as
Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman among the fantastic people
on show. Liam Neeson I think stays with you with an emotionless
performance that suddenly becomes emotional because of his son's
problems in the story and your heart strings are pulled by the end in
part well, you will see or know what I mean with Neeson's sweet little
son. A great cameo from Rowan Atkinson as the jewellery store owner is
one of the funniest bits of the film and annoys Alan Rickman so well,
Richard Curtis who directs and writes this is just superb and one the
best ever with Romantic Comedies. His idea is brilliant and comes to
life not just with the great acting but also his great script and I
feel he deserves even more acclaim for his work than he already does
so. The script is gold and ever so smartly done by Curtis and Curtis is
just the mastermind of the entire project as a whole.
The film is not without slight criticisms and I guess it is in the
sense that it is not laugh out loud funny and sometimes the laughter
can be cut short by an emotional scene which doesn't quite work so well
in parts. Although the film hardly suffers from these tiny things and
all together it is just Great so not much to write here in a critical
sense of the film.
I think people who like RomComs should love this film as it isn't poor
in that area although people looking for hilarious jokes are going to
bore themselves here. The story is soppy and for those who hate loved
up feel good films then please don't watch this or you will hate it,
because that is the entire film in a nutshell. All kind of people
should like it but some won't, it just what happens with film, not
every film can pleasure everyone.
Overall a higher 8/10 from me meaning it is great, it is only just there and
just about steers clear of just being a very good movie. If you dislike
it I would think it would still be an OK film so it worth a watch of
course, sit back and if you have a lover then this is perfect for you
because if anything it can make you near fall more in love than you
