Summary: What happened to f'ck it all from the movie frozen. Never let me go start off great and then the movie went to a turn that I did not like at all, this movie is a okay film and am always saying that but for this movie it is true. the acting was good I Did not find any Bad acting in the movie and the ending was pretty Sad.
Excerpt: Well, KingInTheNorth was right when he warned me of watching this film. I do not like it. Now, I am very critical when it comes to the drama genre, my personal favorite. Especially when there is a romance story involved, one of my least favorite genres. This film's Wikipedia page, at least at the time of posting this review, says that this film is a 'dystopian science-fiction drama film'.
Excerpt: AI and Surrogates without the special effects and with a love story angle. Kathy H (Carey Mulligan) recalls her childhood at Hailsham together with Tommy (Charlie Rowe/Andrew Garfield) and Ruth (Ella Purnell/Keira Knightley). Narration and score was good. Some scenes were a bit sluggish. Cinematography and photography were spectacular. Highlight would be Mulligan's performance and the brilliant screenplay. One of the best lines: Kathy - "We all complete.
Excerpt: I've read the book, so I maybe got an unfairly advantage over those who haven't but watched only the movie, but have I seen the movie first, I probably wouldn't even want to read the book. Because movie went in quite a different direction than the book - in my opinion - changed the characters and the way their relationships were.
Summary: This is an extremely faithful and moving adaptation of Ishiguro's fantastic novel. There are parts that play slowly that are more involving as written words, but, generally, the film excellently captures the melancholy meditation on life and death that is the film's central theme. Wonderfully acted and filmed.
Excerpt: At Hailsham - one of the many British boarding schools at which clones are bred to provide organs for transplants - Kathy, Tommy and Ruth develop an awkward friendship which evolves unexpectedly as it progresses into their brief adult lives. Although it was occasionally moving and featured good performances by Carey Mulligan and by the three actors who portrayed the younger Kathy, Tommy and Ruth, this movie was a little too thin on story and ran a little too long.
Summary: "Never Let Me Go" shows the life of unworldly people. The drama of how their life were directed even before knowing the reality of it- and the resistance of getting off in it. Since the story was narrated and from the point of view of an unworldly character, the thought of the film goes through critical region. BUT I must say that the drama in it was sustained.
Summary: Highly Implausible plot... I kept thinking why on earth wouldn't ALL the organ donors volunteer to be "caregivers" and why would a caregiver opt to become a donor... Acting was good, but the plot was annoying. Its hard to get involved in a film when there are such gaping holes in the logic of the narrative.
