Critic Reviews for Before We Go

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (12)

While this kind of tale is a fantasy for the movies, with an emphasis on realism in style and deliberately paced story, "Before We Go" suggests that it really can happen, even just for a fleeting moment.

Slight and familiar but sweet enough for Saturday night, Before We Go is the umpteenth re-up of Brief Encounter, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Very little here is special, despite the individual charms of Evans and co-star Alice Eve.

The whole effort seems to run solely on the smiles of its photogenic leads. And, frankly, the smiles routinely dissipate any perceived tension.

Before We Go is a nice enough effort, a little movie with a big heart.

Audience Reviews for Before We Go

An amazing debut at directing for Chris Evans. Before we go one of the most romantic and charming movies of the year, thanks to the amazing chemistry betwean the two lead actors, Chris Evans and Alice Eve.

Excellent movie. It portrays about how surprising and unpredictable one's journey in life could be. This movie also shows the beauty of the 'non mainstream' side of Manhattan which is very unique. It plays with audience's emotions in a subtle but very genuine way. Soundtrack fits perfectly to the scene and emotion that the characters are going through. It's hard to describe with words but this movie really touched my inner soul.

Inconsistent is the best word to describe Before We Go. The script is full of cliches and plot holes, the chemistry between the two leads is shaky, and the final 20 minutes feel rushed. That being said, there are some redeeming qualities in play. Chris Evans shines in the lead role, even though he has to drag Alice Eve's lifeless performance and inconsistent accent along the way. There are also moments when his touch as a director really shines. The cinematography in the subway really stood out to me as bringing the city to life. I hope he gives directing another shot with a stronger script. All-in-all, unless you're obsessed with Chris Evans or just want to watch a romance regardless of quality, don't waste your time with this one.
