    Steve Miner's Forever Young is a surprising film that is quite underrated. I normally find Romances to be a bit dull, and clichéd, but this one has something else, a feeling of genuine charm, humor, and good performances from its cast. What makes this film stand out is the story, simple, yet effective it just is an engaging movie from the opening shot. Mel Gibson gives a very good performance here and the film just manages to elevate the traditional romance formula. There are a few parts that seem kind of flimsy and there could have been a few better written scenes. Overall this was an enjoyable film to watch, and I really liked it. In terms of cast, and plot, it's well thought out, and director Steve Miner has crafted a very good little film with this one. I found this to be underrated and it deserved far better praise than what it initially got. Forever Young isn't perfect, but it is worth seeing if you love these types of movie. Like I said, some things could have been rewritten and the script could have been polished, but what do you expect from a low budget picture? The film was fun, dramatic and compelling. This is far better than most romance, drama films of today and it proves that you can do a lot with simple ideas. Steve Miner is a pretty good director and this is among his best films, I still think Friday the 13th Part 2 was his best, but with this one, he showcased his talents and delivered a good film from a totally different genre, which is great.

    In a tragic bit of prophetic irony Gibson stars in a sci-fi romcom wherein a guy with career potential awakens from deep sleep only to find himself without a career and without friends. "Now what," he wonders. The film goes nowhere too.

    I really enjoyed this movie and I've watched it several times. I know that this movie may seem a bit tacky to some people but I find the story interesting and loveable. It's great to see how a talented actor Elijah Wood has been at an early age. I actually shed some tears the first times I saw the ending. This really was a memorable movie.

    I don't think Steve Miner was ever really sure what exactly he wanted this film to be so he threw elements from different genres into the movie, which normally would make for a bad film. However Forever Young has a really great cast headlined by Mel Gibson, who can pretty much do anything and everything and make even the worst of movies a little bit better. I watched this as a kid, and it only got better over the years as I've revisited it and that is the trademark of a timeless classic. That in a nutshell is what Forever Young is, despite the fact that it tells you in big block letters in the first half of the film that he is in 1992, the movie isn't that dated and I love the way they recreated the 30's look of a small California town. If you haven't seen it then it is most definitely worth a look!
