What really works about this version is the fact that Bradley Cooper co-wrote it, he produced it and stars in it, and put it together but he incorporates little elements of Lady Gaga's Story.
March 18, 2019
A worthwhile drama with impressive acting and musical performances, A Star Is Born proves this frequently revisited tale still has relevance and room for reinterpretation.

"A Star Is Born" proves to be a satisfying, if cliched, version of the classic story.

Cooper leaps from one All Caps Scene to another. It's like we're watching a lengthy, spoiler-packed trailer of a longer movie's major moments.

A Star Is Born is a fantastic film (...) [b]ut it's contempt for pop music is disappointing.

Cooper saw that A Star is Born was long in the tooth but had good bones -- so he turned a worn-out TCM staple into a hot-blooded, vitally relevant picture. Everything old is new again. You could even say it's been re-born.

This is a love story for the ages... that's actually more than just epic romance. A sublime motion picture that defies the theory that all remakes are automatically bad.

A Star Is Born is a movie about what happens at an awards show, designed to collect awards at other awards shows.
February 25, 2019
Still it is proof a formula story isn't necessarily a bad thing if it is executed well and this is.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga put their charisma, personalities, and talent into this film to give it the uniqueness and appeal required by the canonical Hollywood tale they've revived for the fourth time.

A Star is Born will tug at the heartstrings of even those who have seen this story play out time and time again.

With Gaga, everyone who feels the call of the polymorphous can see themselves in the endlessly malleable contours of her face and hear their emotions throb in her omni-generic singing.
February 8, 2019
Ambitious in scope and intimate in execution, it's a film from which two stars are in fact born - Gaga the dramatic actor and Cooper the director.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Absolutely deserves to be put up as one of the year's best films.

It may be a little less powerful if you know where the story is heading, but it's undeniably a triumph for Cooper.
February 6, 2019
Nothing about A STAR IS BORN feels earned. The movie plods along to the inevitable conclusion and features unexplained time jumps that we are just supposed to accept.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

A Star Is Born is perfection. Bradley Cooper, in his directorial debut does this franchise right sprinkling bits and pieces of various versions, yet maintaining its own identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Note to the other filmmakers behind the latest "A Star Is Born" remake: you probably shouldn't let the actor playing the fading singer also direct the movie. And help write it.
