Nice looking but shallow and predictable flick with some bad casting choises
Greetings from Lithuania.
"The Best of Me" (2014) is a romantic drama from the mind of Nicolas Sparks, the man who created "Notebook" and many more romantic flicks. This flick isn't original, special or great - it looks nice, cinematography is good, but it's very predictable, cheesy and shallow. Acing was OK but nothing special, and thats not a good sign as this kind of movie must have great chemistry between actors, and there was no chemistry between the young versions of main characters. And by the way, Luke Bracey and James Marsden has got absolutely no physical resemblance - and they are playing the same character and i think that both ladies are also doesn't look similar at all - and they have no chemistry - it's just bad casting.
Overall, "The Best of Me" isn't bad movie, it's just that it's highly familiar, predictable and sometimes manipulative. I could easily bashed this movie and find "100 clichés" but i'm giving it 7 because at running time of almost 2 hours i wasn't bored.
