Summary: In Watching this movie you will find some discontinuty problems with the music matching the motions. At the Organ scene the music swells while August is playing but the hands of the player remain still. In the Concert scene you will find that the Orchestra begins without the conductor starting them.
Summary: This is one of my very favorite movies of all time, among those such as Crash and Patch Adams, that truly reveals the places of music and depth that goes beyond common understanding and the charts. You will never forget this touching, warm, and heart-tugging creation!
Pros: Broad Appeal, Emotionally Engaging, Engaging Characters, Great Cinematography, Original Story, Talented Cast
"August Rush" touched something buried deep inside my soul seventy six years ago.

Summary: This movie "August Rush" really touched my soul. I was an orphan and identified with this child's yearning and searching for his parents. Near the end of the movie, I started to cry like a baby. "August Rush" touched something tender buried deep inside my soul seventy-six years ago.
Summary: This is an urban fairy tale. If you go to AUGUST RUSH with the intention of poking holes in it, you can find little glitches and logic flaws. On the other hand, if you are looking for a movie that will sing to your soul (and show you some beautiful eye candy as a bonus), look no farther.
Summary: This is a fantastic movie. Well done. During our screening at a particularly tough part for the title character, I heard people in the theater say "No, no..." The level of "buy in" and suspension of disbelief is high. Even the dissonance of Wizard and Lila's father was handled superbly.
Summary: I never comment on movies here, usually I just use this website to get an idea of what I am about to watch but I saw this movie last night and loved it. This movie is a fairytale set in real life circumstances.
