Midnight Sun Reviews

March 23, 2018
With modest production values throughout, "Midnight Sun" feels like four or five episodes of a pretty good drama on the WB network in 1997. In other words, something you used to get for free.

The authentic Sparks movies at least tend to be howlers, with shamelessly overcomplicated narratives and risible twists. Midnight Sun, on the other hand, is straightforward and trite.

A preposterous film so insufferably adorable and frightfully melodramatic that viewers will find themselves confused as to which reflex to stifle: The urge to howl, or the one to hurl.

Midnight Sun is cheesy and implausible and manipulative, but it did chip away at my cynicism through the sheer force of its corny and sincere heart.

In slapsticky moments, you can tell she's working overtime to spark something, anything, but nothing catches fire in this Midnight Sun.

None of the film rings remotely true, especially the cornball conclusion, but the two young leads are so darn attractive and appealing that one can't help being caught up in their characters' poignant romance.

Under the limp direction of Scott Speer, "Midnight Sun" suffocates its sentimental script, portraying passion without wonder, sacrifice without ecstasy.

Schwarzenegger's chief skills are leaning against things, looking confused and having good hair, while Thorne struggles to convincingly lip sync.

The trouble isn't just that "Midnight Sun" cherry-picks the most poetic elements of a real-world disease to serve its transparently manipulative ends, but that it offers audiences such an unrealistic portrait of romance in the process.

Adolescent girls (and boys, too) are entitled to teen-tragedy tear-jerkers, those Kleenex-soaking tales of the fragility of life and love in an uncaring universe. But that audience deserves better than Midnight Sun.

Midnight Sun does what it means to do for the people it means to do it for-and that might just be enough.

A soapy YA romance that'll have you yearning for gritty edge of Twilight.
