Summary: This was really dull and boring. We really tried to keep our interest in the film but after 45 minutes, we could not sustain any longer and hit the eject button. If you like a film with lots of uninteresting conversations then rent this film out, if not save a couple of hours of your life and hire something more interesting.
An absolutely realistic delight (so not for everyone)

Summary: A very engaging sequel. However, if you haven't seen the first two this is not going to mean much. If you loved them, you will love this (l would predict), but you may need to be a parent yourself to fully appreciate it.
Summary: Lovely scenery in Greece but this film was sending us off to sleep ten minutes in. The early scene of the couple talking in the car seemed to go on and on and on and on.........and on. The next scene of three / four men talking dragged and then there was a scene at a dinner table and that was about it for us. I've not felt the urge to cut a film short for a long time and there are some real stinkers about and I'm afraid to say this is up there with the worst of them.
Summary: If, like me, you watch this for the Peloponnese locations in Kardamyli and Patrick Leigh Fermor's house ( I believe ) then expect discombobulation in following where the hell they are. End credits mention thanks to the people of Pylos ( western Messinian coast ) and the smart hotel ends up being on Costa Navarino Golf resort. Or, nowhere near Kardamyli. So they walk from house and end up in Pylos harbour ?? You work it out.
Excerpt: If you've seen the previous films (Before Sunrise/Sunset), then you know what to expect from 'Before Midnight'. It's been a pleasure to watch the romantic relationship between these two characters evolve over the course of all three films. Here it seems the most change has happened in the lives of our now 'domestic-partnership' couple, as they've become parents.
Summary: Just like the 2 previous movies in this series, the 2 main leads have brilliant chemistry, the locations are beautiful, there are moments that will make you laugh and things you will recognise in yourself and others. If you love the 2 previous movies then you'll feel like you almost know these characters which makes the final act harder to watch than the previous movies but there is still hope as there always has been as these movies come to a close.
Excerpt: Provocative, funny, realistic and entertaining. It's method of adding new elements hampered it a little. This felt like a romantic comedy version of Scenes from a Marriage crossed with Crimes and Misdemeanors. We always know we are going to get a well-written plot/screenplay from the Before franchise. This reviewer has seen the first and 2nd installment which eagerly makes this a definite must watch with my significant other.
Excerpt: Even though romance is one of my least favorite genres and I have suffered my good share of terrible rom-coms and Twilight fan-fiction, I am proud to admit I finally found the perfect date movie. This is an excellent romantic drama. It is funny, it is romantic, it is genuine and it is authentic. The acting of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke is never over the top or overly romantic or in love.
