So I actually don’t know why I decided to watch this film. It was on my list of films to see, but I don’t know why today of all days I started it.
This film is different. What I mean by that is that – yes it has the stereotypical story and stereotypical ending – but the dialogue and connections felt in this story are different. The main actors – Dylan O’Brien and Britt Robertson – actually share some really good chemistry and great sassy remarks that keep the story entertaining and relatable to the average high school student. I could even call it relatable to a college student sometimes. Occasionally it slips to that realm of unbelievability but overall, I believe there characters’ actions.
There was only one thing that bothered me but it would be the rushed romance between the characters. I mean I’m all for the romance, but it just felt a bit quick. I’ll just leave it at that because if you watch the movie you will understand.
Overall, I say this movie is worth checking out if you get the chance. Maybe make it a date night movie or something you watch by yourself with a bowl of ice cream – the choice is yours.
Side Note – I know I haven’t given these reviews lately any stars and I think I’m going to stick with letting you guys decide how I felt about the film.
Until next time
