Would you really fall in love with this? Maybe…
Would you really fall in love with someone guy who time travels and so on?
Will you be taking away by this film, maybe, but for me it was just another generic film with a more interesting situation added into the mix of the story that is The Time Travelling aspect.
The Film is about Henery ( Eric Bana ) and Claire ( Rachel Mcadams ) who under a difficult situation find fall in love. and that is the basic plot and it is the script part of this film which really is the troubling part. It has everything you would want in a date film likable leads, romantic premise and a different concept but the film tells the story in such a silly way that we, the audience cannot have fun with these leads no matter how good their chemistry they have.
The film is just does not go into enough detail for me about how his life was touched by this time travelling condition. The film does go into some aspects and it does show how it can affect his marriage and his life but the two leads just don't put enough emotion across the screen for us to even care about the characters.
But saying that the films second half is more interesting than the first as they begin to try for a baby and the film is lot more interesting when you find out the eventual fate of Henry and that he will die.
The two leads may have great chemistry but that does not over shadow the fact that this film does not have enough character development, emotion or even that good of a script. But that does not mean it is bad, it just means that it had its moments but just that we needed more of them.
If you are a fan of the book then you might get more out of it than me.
