Remember Me review - A little late.
I am probably going to get a verbal beating for this... But as the title says I almost wish R-pattz wasn't in the lead role. The first half of the movie I found myself getting distracted when E. Cullen kept thundering across the screen. Then I got used to him as Tyler instead. The reason for this statement - is that I feel this is such a GREAT - correct that better than AWESOME movie, that Robert stole my attention from how great the film really was!
It has been a while since I've been sitting and watching the end credits unable to move because the film just blew me away. I found myself having problems breathing during the end and I was left speechless.
So here is what I liked.
Robert Pattinson as Tyler (when I got past the distractions) I liked that there was no pretty boy covering his role - yes he is gorgous, but not afraid of making a few horrible grimaces along the way. It was great to see Robert as something else then our brooding Edward! To see him stretch is given talent in something we haven't seen before.
His friendship with Adian brought a nice twist to the film. Tate Ellington did an amazing job.
Pierce - makes a good ass hat of a father!
His younger sister was very cute and very convincing. All around I thought it was very well casted and the entire thing came together quite nice!
In generally I love the way it was filmed, that it wasn't prettified and had a raw edge to it. GREAT.
The end was done beautifully... I wasn't sure I liked the 9/11 patriotic heroic twist - but looking back the title says it all! The entire mood and settings of the end was delicate and perfect.
I am so sorry Emilie De Ravin!
I have never really been a fan of hers, but I do feel better about her now. It is not that I think she is a bad actress - she just annoys me. So the beginning where Ally is like 'I am so great at talking cool about absolutely nothing' REALLY annoyed me. No her fault - but I just hated it! Though she did win me over and I thought she worked as Ally - I am just not fully convinced.
Besides that there wasn't many dislikes.
Tell me what you think. Thanks for reading.
