For all its Spielbergian action and production values, the film is painfully sappy and wastes its A-list cast by saddling them with a hamfisted script.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Whimsical and affecting enough, but certainly a lesser Spielberg film.
| Original Score: 3/5

Boring supernatural romance. Tedius and obvious. Wait until the following year's Ghost.
| Original Score: 1/5

Although Always is filled with big, sentimental moments, it lacks the intimacy to make any of this very moving.
| Original Score: 3/5

A light, enjoyable piece of fluff with spectacular flying scenes and a dramatically flat story.

Always may be starry-eyed romantic claptrap, but by God, would that all starry-eyed romantic claptrap were so well done.

Spielberg sets his whimsical romance ray for stun ... and comes up with a solid double off the wall.

A rousing adventure story, a romantic comedy, and an affecting afterlife fantasy.

The result is a curiosity: a remake that wasn't remade enough.

An unfulfilled promise, a plummeting dove.

The story, which was set during World War II in the original film, has been updated and placed in modern times. And that's part of the problem.
