Not bad, just not good. At all.
15 February 2015 | by rprince-832-6294See all my reviews

-Song One (2015) movie review: -Song One is a romance based drama about a girl who seeks out her brother's favorite musician after her brother is hit by a car and put into a coma.

-As a described that, I realized how much this film sounds like a generic music film combined with a generic Lifetime drama. That is about as thorough as I can be to how not-good this film is.

-The story lacked any motivation, and therefor dragged on without cause.

-The pace is the same as the story, which means it just drags on…. and on…. and on….

-The acting was unimpressive. It stars Anne Hathaway who just moped around the entire time. Mary Steenburgen who plays the same character she always plays. And Johnny Flynn as the most introverted musician I have ever seen.

-The characters are just how I described the actors.

-The music was very forgettable, for a film about music.

-A film like this did not need an ambiguous ending.

-I am trying to think of anything else to say about it. It is not terrible, it just is not good. I smiled once. Once.

-Song One is rated PG-13 for some brief language and a very suggestive scene.

-Song One was not impressive or entertaining, and even though it was not terrible, Song One is not worth the 2 hours.
