Good Love Story, 26 December 2009
Author: (bob-rutzel-1) from United States

Peter (Neeson) discovers his wife Lisa (Linney), is having an affair. He vows to find the Other Man, Ralph (Banderas).

This is a strange love story, but a good one nevertheless. No, nothing uncomfortable in here. There will be a bombshell almost near the end. Deal with it. We all had to.

To have Liam Neeson and Antonio Banderas in a movie together is pure gold and the performances by the rest of the cast are extremely well done.

It's kind of hard to talk about the story without giving the bombshell away. Many will say it was predictable and that's a cop-out as yes, there is nothing new under the sun. But, it's all in the telling and that is why we watch. We know the outcomes of most stories, but again, it's in the telling that counts. And, this one is good in the telling.

And, also there is some suspense and tension and those are needed for a good story. At times, you really are not sure where this is going and you may find yourself holding your breath.

The only complaint I have are the flashbacks. Until we really get to know the characters we are not sure if we are in the present or are taken back in time. But, we catch on, we usually do. But a different color filter could be used for flashbacks and we would quickly know we are in a flashback. Hey, I'm just saying.

This probably went straight to DVD because there were no explosions, shootings, unbelievable stunts or the almost ever-present CGI. Hey, it's a love story.

Violence: No. Sex: No, but you see positions for. Nudity: Yes. Language: Yes, briefly in the beginning
