I thought this was going to be a fluffy chick flick, but it's actually a tragedy. I loved it until an hour and a half in, when my heart broke and kept on breaking. Still, despite the fact that this is NOT a feel-good movie, it's very good. And my god, Liam Hemsworth is beautiful. As is Kate Winslet. Oh- and the Hugo Weaving character was perfect.
Every review is 4 or 5 stars except one, so not sure how 62% is calculated..
This had that Hallmark vibe (though definitely not as G-rated) but if it had been made by a major studio it would have done really well. Good story and good acting. A little far-fetched, of course, but a lot of good movies are. I was pleasantly surprised.
I'm about to watch this movie for the second time- don't remember much from first watch but do remember I really liked it. Surprised at the ratings. Might update this later. Funny, witty, romantic- that's what I remember.
Not really horror- if you can handle a creepy contortionist set to eerie music you can handle this. To those saying it's the same as Get Out, consider that your statement might be racist. Black character + mind experiments doesn't equal ‘same'. It's very different. Good concept and good story- just not quite *wow*. There were 2 things I didn't like: 1) I found the very last scene to be cheesy and unnecessary, and 2) SPOILER it's silly to have us believe that the abusive, aggressive, selfish man would sacrifice himself; they should have had Nolan overpower him enough to push him into the hall. Those 2 things would have made it another half star better.
Whoa. This actually jives with things I say to people- I pretend I'm joking but I'm really not. The end, where the children explained the message about our environment and technology.... that had me in goosebumps from head to toe. Let's wake up, people. Respect our planet, and believe beyond what we've been spoon-fed all our lives. How egotistical are we, to really think we're alone in the universe, and that everything we do affects only ourselves?
