Two movies for the price of one

... which may not necessarily be a good thing.

Oddly, you divide the two almost at the midway point, that is, the one hour mark.

The first movie is a really sweet love story about lost love. It features a lot of flashbacks but luckily the actors playing the flashbacks and the actors playing 'real time' are all very competent, do a great job,the script works well, and the audience has a fun ride.

If the first hour were a movie on its own, I would give it a very strong rating.

However almost at the turn of the second hour (two hours BTW is much too long for this story) the connection between audience and viewer (this important factor discussed in many of my IMDb reviews) starts to fade as many story complications set in. And the script becomes lost in the various arcs.

I will not go into the complications but let me say that by the "climax" of the last Act the viewer may wonder if he/she dozed off and woke up in front of the TV watching an episode of JUSTIFIED. Enough said.

If the second hour were a movie on its own, I would give it a very low rating.

As an entire movie as it now stands, this film can be a rough ride for the viewer, and that is not a good thing.

Notes:

* always happy to see Michelle Monaghan, an actress under-used these days. Real star quality.

* Liana Liberato has a nice career ahead and better still actually looks like a young Michelle Monaghan, which is more than I can say of the casting choices for the male leads

* here is a tip for casting directors. FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE. Help you avoid the problem of casting two actors playing the same role (one in flashback) WHO LOOK NOTHING AT ALL LIKE EACH OTHER

Was This Really A Nicholas Sparks Story?

Was this really a Nicholas Sparks story? If so, I can only blame the people involved in making it into a film for doing such a bad job. What are they called - the "adaptation" people?

Anyway, at least 30 minutes before the end I knew what was going toi happen. It was that obvious. I kept asking "When are the bad guys going toi show up and ruin all this happy stuff?" And then we find her bot needs a new heart. Well, it's obivous whose heart it's gonig to be!

And sure as sh**, up come the bad baoys shoving his truck into the train. Yeah, so he's going to die in a train wrech and his heart will go to the boy! Easy peasy.

Oh, but wait. There's a twist in thtail. He doesn't get shoved into the train. Whoo-dee-doo. So it's gongi to be a happy anding after all! Oh, what a relief!

But wait! No! Another of the bad guys shoots him and he dies anyway. OK, veru vclever, we all thought it was going to be OK , but it wasn't. Aren't you dcript writers so damn clever.

PS. sinvce when do heart donors become availbe within hours of someone neeing a new heart? THAT didn't pass the smalell tesat. PPS. So when she gets the phone sAll that Dawson is dead, how come she didn't realise it was HIS heart that ws available. I guess because the scritpwriters can add yet another where the boy tells his mum who the donor was.

Oh dear, such a contrived storyline.

Next time, Mr Sparks, pleaase make sure you get approval rights for the sdcreen adaptation. Hopefully you'll prevent you next story being converted into an abomination like this was.

So many tears!

I have to say i LOVE movies by Nicholas Sparks and this movie was no exception.

This film made me tear up a fair few times, it was a beautiful storyline with so much feeling. The connection between Dawson and Amanda is amazing. the end of the story was very touching. i slightly saw it coming about 10 minutes before hand but was very beautiful. Although if you tend to cry at a movie get a box of tissues ready because you will definitely need them.

9/10 would recommend!
