Storyline

Hazel and Augustus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they meet and fall in love at a cancer support group.

Okay...Okay...Okay...
23 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

'Okay....okay....okay'

Okay, let's start this. The word 'Okay' gets tossed around a lot in this movie. It helps describe Hazel and Gus' relationship, but not at all in a negative way. It is their way of romantically talking to each other. It is hard to explain until you've seen the movie, but it used in a positive context. But, this word also perfectly sums up this INCREDIBLY overrated, long, average film.

Things I liked: - The acting: The best aspect of this movie was the acting. Shailene Woodley is a phenomenal actress. I fully acknowledge and respect the role she partook as it was obviously very challenging. Also brilliant was Ansel Elgort. I will admit that I had never heard of him before this movie, but now that I know of him, he will always be in my favourite male actors. The talent from these two leads appeared almost effortless. Every cast member proved it be great. But bringing it back to Shailene Woodly, this women deserves at least a Oscar Nom. She carried the movie, with the perfect balance of humor, being cynical and knowing that she could die at a moments notice. Pure perfection.

-The following were all also great. The direction, the editing, the cinematography, the locations and settings. Every scene felt...right. It really flowed well this movie. It was never for a second offbeat. But although it was never offbeat, that sacrificed....

Things I didn't like: -The script: THE SCRIPT! THE SCRIPT! The Script was simply bad. So many scenes felt forced, and the dialoge was so bad and so unrealistic. Everything that Gus said, I was on the verge of cringing. It was just bad. Now, I've never read the book. It might have already been written like that, but if it was, that is when people should realise that some things are left better on page then on screen.

Overall, this movie was...okay. In fact, it was in many ways better then okay, it was almost great, but the script made it an awkward and unpleasant watch. Although the two leads made the chemistry true, the script made it feel so forced.

5/10
