Excerpt: Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) is a troubled young man trying to get over the death of his brother and dealing with a seemingly uncaring father (Pierce Brosnan).

Conclusion: Remember Me is a strong picture that takes an honest look at the frailty of life and the importance of living it to its fullest each and every day. If there is an ultimate message, it's that one shouldn't wait until tragedy strikes to strengthen the bonds of love or open one's eyes to see what it is they have in life. Life is a fragile, fleeting thing; Remember Me encourages its audience to live like every day is the last, because it may very well be.
Excerpt: Any review of the maudlin, meandering Robert Pattinson drama Remember Me will always get around to mentioning the Big Twist Ending, so let's just get it out of the way now: There's a Big Twist Ending that anyone paying attention to the film's internal clock and visual cues can see coming a mile away.
Excerpt: New York City is crawling with self-serious NYU students, styling themselves after James Dean with rumpled clothes and bad attitudes, mooning over a girl they barely know and convinced that their deep feelings are the deepest the world has ever known. As a rule, we hate these kids, and the last thing any of us would want to see is a movie celebrating their youth and idealism and romantic passion-- film students make enough of those as it is.
Excerpt: The last 10 to 15 minutes of Remember Me turn on such a drastic miscalculation that audiences will scarcely be able to talk about anything else. That’s too bad, because before it’s freighted with more significance than its flimsy architecture can possibly withstand, this romantic melodrama strives for something nearly as ambitious: It attempts to turn Twilight ’s Robert Pattinson into the millennial James Dean.
Excerpt: Han må sakna huggtänder här, men hans emo-badboy med skäggstubb och mörk uppsyn går säkert fortfarande hem hos 14-åringarna. Här spelar han en 22-årig universitetsstudent som klandrar sin far (en underbart dryg och sur Pierce Brosnan) för sin brors självmord, och det är också på universitetet han träffar Ally (Emelie de Ravin från Lost) som också har en familjetragedi i garderoben. Gissa om de blir kära?
