    Not one to watch if you suffer from depression or want any excitement at all.

    Never Let Me Go is a surprising film, with a strange blend of sci-fi, mystery, romance, and atrocity that I've never seen before. The film's style, especially in the first act, is quite good and gives the sense it takes place in an alternate, but very real world. The lead actresses play their parts well, as one would expect. The main strike against the film is the lead actor, who is fine, but not on par with his co-stars and it detracts from the tragic strain the film is going for. But overall, Never Let Me Go is a memorable film and is quite good.

    A sad tone poem about the lives of clones developed purely to harvest their body parts. Can't say more than that, can one? But I'll try. Good performances, solid production values and yet ... the whole movie's like getting a bowl of hot, melted ice cream at your dearly beloved grandmother's funeral. Like taking a group of puppies to the animal shelter. Like being the only one to work on Christmas Day and finding you have to do a double cause yer relief's not coming in. You get it. I kept asking myself: " How long can this go on?"

    I can understand that the message the film gives is pretty awesome. However, I couldn't really connect with the movie as much as I wanted to. I felt most of it was forced and too dour to be relatable.
