Hanover Street Reviews
Hanover Street also comes together in it's final action sequences which have a classical war feel to them and provide surprisingly entertaining.
There's also a nice musical score and some good cinematography in Hanover Street., as well as the fact that it was shot on great locations and featured some good action sequences. It just took a long time before they came along. Christopher Plummer also gave a good performance, and Lesley-Anne Down was ok.
But Hanover Street came from before Pearl Harbour or Heaven's Gate, and taught us that action and romance are not a good blend of genres.
It seems like Michael Bay didn't learn from this film, but at least Hanover Street didn't punch history in the face. And it did have a good soundtrack and premise, but it's blend of romance and war was shallow and pedantic,and Harrison Ford was more wooden than the trees they wasted cutting down to imprint this terrible screenplay on.
This is the funniest exert from the poor script of Hanover Street:
"You know why these things are heavy? Because their made of metal." "Metals a lot heavier than air". Thank you for clarifying this Peter Hyams, I had no idea.
The one moment of strength in the script is when Christopher Plummer states "It's only bravery if you've got something to lose."
And the biggest wonder of Hanover Street is "What relevance is the Term Hanover Street to this film?" as it doesn't bother to clarify.
But all in all, Hanover Street still has the look and credibility of a decent old war movie and has a notable cast, so it's definetely one to appeal to the oldies. It wouldn't appeal to the impatient though, but at least since it has romance and action you can sit through it with your partner without either one getting TOO bored. Odds are you'll get bored, but not too badly.
However margaret is uneasy and has to get away, she does'nt want to go any futrther with david the pilot, as she flees from him her glove comes off to reveal that she has a wedding ring. She still runs away and a bomb comes down over the street.
He looks high and low for her in the rubble and finds her sobbing near a building, they share their first kiss under fire. they both know that they've found something special.
an upset soon comes around the cooprner fo these two lovers, margaret still loves her husband, she is definately torn between two lovers.
a beautiful, heart felt romance blossoms,
the two leads here show great chemistry with one another, Harrison Ford showing great talent her and the same for british actress Lesley-Anne Down
Christopher Plummer plays the role of Margarets husband who is an intelligence officer and loves his wife more than anything.
a saddening film, a whole lot of drama, i fekt so much for the characters and their relationship, the ending is upsetting and in a way uplifting.they'll always have hanover street, and he'll think of her when he drinks tea.
