Audience Reviews for Aloha

  • Jan 04, 2016
    Aloha seems to lack any purpose or direction at all. This is the embodiment of quirky for the sake of quirkiness and it just doesn't work with nothing to care for or invest in.

    Unfortunately an unfocused and meandering effort despite the tremendous talents involved. The wonder of this quite frankly, is how John Krasinski (of all people) and Rachel McAdams escaped unscathed.

    Aloha is so bland and a waste of talent that its almost unreal. With such a great cast and Cameron Crowe at the directors helm, this seemed like it had a lot going for it. But what we get is an incredibly slow and truly pointless story about... honestly I have no idea. There is a romance somewhere here and a few love triangles, and something about space and Hawaii. None of it fits, and it felt simply ridiculous. None of the character felt real or likeable, and I didn't laugh once and wasn't engaged with the romance. The pacing is almost laughable, and I was looking forward to the credits rolling. I did not like this movie, and I do not recommend it.

    Aloha is a smart and entertaining comedic drama from writer/director Cameron Crowe. Starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, and Bill Murray, the film follows a military contractor who comes back home to Hawaii to help secure the cooperation of a native Hawaii tribe in allowing the construction of a new aerospace launch site; but returning home forces him to face some unresolved issues from his past. The performances are pretty good; particularly Stone, who brings a lot of charisma to the film. The writing however, is rather weak; as the plot is underdeveloped and a bit contrived. However, Crowe's able to give an emotional resonance to the film that makes it quite touching at times. It has some weaknesses, but overall Aloha is a lighthearted and uplifting film.
