And a new level of boredom is born.

  • 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'.

Never Let Me Go review

  • 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.

Much weaker than the book!

  • 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.

  • 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.

"Never Let Me Go" - Never Let Go of this film...

  • Summary: "Never Let Me Go" is one of the most distressing and depressing films I've ever seen, so it's easy to imagine why this film, despite a wealth of positive reviews, failed at the American box office so badly last year. What people are missing, however, despite its grim subject matter (including one of the most upsetting, yet profoundly moving endings ever), is one of the most intelligent, thought-provoking, and well-acted films in recent memory.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I had no expectations to this film, I just read the introduction to what the plot of the film was and then I pressed play. After twenty minutes the film finally reveals what the plot is about, so anyone who have not read the cliffnotes will have no idea what it is about. I'm gonna sum up this movie in a short dialog. "Do you want to die?" - No. "Too bad, because eventually we will kill you." - Please don't kill me.
