Good Movie - yet...
20 June 2015 | by mickeyno-79178See all my reviews

The story is of course a big one, and its out to give you thrills, hate, joy and hope. Unfortunately Ryan Reynolds took away many of those. His acting was predictable, joyless and heartless and mostly: Not believable. Helen Mirren did her part just like expected, believable and she gave us all the emotions we requested and required to feel this movie as what it should be: A Reminder.

Yet; I gave it a 8 for a good display on the reaction of the 'Takers' and the new Generations of it. There is a big Gap between 'What is right', 'What should be right'. Forgetting is never a solution, yet the new Generations acquire the right to 'move on'. The Movie shows that 'moving on' is an Option, yet not a Solution.

Enjoy the movie. I just wish someone else played Ryan Reynolds part.
