The Vow Reviews
Saw this on 31/3/15
The vow starts off well, but it becomes shallow and ordinary in it's last 20-30 minutes. However it's watchable due to the earnest efforts of Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams.
Engaging but annoying because of ...
I can't believe this is based on a true story, because the whole drama and conflict was caused by the fact that he arbitrarily decides not to tell his amnesiac wife one important detail that could have easily been verified. But instead he decides to be unconvincing and struggle with his wife believing the lies she's told by her family, and forces her to avoid him because he's being such a creeper. It's like arbitrary starvation while surrounded by good food and expecting sympathy.
Two great actors, but true or not, this story's plot is all fail.
