After is also one of those teen dramas where every emotion has to be underscored by a pop-song and a hair is never out of place.
June 26, 2020
Adapted from young adult fan fiction, not much happens in this adolescent love story, yet it becomes weirdly interesting.
August 30, 2019
Of such deficient quality that it's unfathomable people will actually pay for a ticket to see this.
July 31, 2019
The music is fun and the scenery is beautifully cinematic, in a way, but the story itself is neither.
July 24, 2019
The leads give it all they've got, and Australian actress Josephine Langford is impressive given the limited range of her role. The film looks pretty and director Jenny Gage, to her credit, knows the rhythms of teen melodrama well.
July 12, 2019
It's a movie well made for its target audience.
July 10, 2019
After makes 50 Shades Of Grey look like Anna Karenina.
July 7, 2019
The film's illogical choices and standard teen romance mentality mean nothing that transpires on screen feels remotely fresh.
July 5, 2019
The first movie adaptation, and it looks fairly safe to say there won't be any more Afters after this After.
July 1, 2019
The key to the book's success lies in its artful amateurism. It replicates the tone of one teen confiding in another and in this anodyne screen translation, its intimacy is lost.
June 11, 2019
Where are the real teen romances? This gives us a hint, but the script is so flawed that it's hard to buy anything the characters do.
April 27, 2019
...an often aggressively generic scenario...
April 22, 2019
A lost opportunity. [Full review in Spanish]
April 19, 2019
Full of light, pastel colors, enormous curtains, [a] bubble bath, and loud breathing while Taylor Swift plays. [Full review in Spanish]
April 18, 2019
The performances are spotty and half-hearted, even the most serious of lines are laughable.
April 16, 2019
Anna Todd's novel adaptation is this generation's Cruel Intentions. The PG-13 rating holds back the story some, but stars Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin have impeccable chemistry.
April 15, 2019
As assumed, After is remarkably horny and corny to the point of embarrassment.
April 15, 2019
I endured [the film until the end only because of professional duty. [Full review in Spanish]
April 15, 2019
Films like After aren't necessarily the best kinds of films to talk to teenagers about sex. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 15, 2019
It just...lingers, futilely praying that the leads can wring something out of this material.
