August Rush

Critics Consensus

Though featuring a talented cast, August Rush cannot overcome the flimsy direction and schmaltzy plot.

Audience Reviews for August Rush

  • Jan 15, 2016
    A very nice little movie with a great message. I love how this kid sees music in everything...it's really cool. I know what that's like sometimes to some extent, finding a soundtrack to everyday life. Although obviously, August sees and hears this to a much greater degree than anyone else lol. Anyway, this is worth a watch.

    I enjoyed this wonderful film that is about lost people trying to find each other. I think the jaded critics are way off on their reviews of this romantic, family friendly film.

    A good hearted film with some great music, great performances, but a very terrible ending that almost ruined it for me.
