Don't Believe The Critics, See it for YourselfBy elimpy (6 reviews) from Hartlepool , 07 Nov 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]I really can't understand the drubbing this movie took from the so called professional critics. All that I can think is that they are so prejudice against Efron due to his past Disney credentials, that they don't want to give him the credit for being a 'real actor' or consider him in any film that breaks him from the Disney High School Musical mold.
I have to admit that when I heard some of the reviews for this film I had few expectations for it. How wrong could I be. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Never did I clock watch, become bored or fidget in my seat. It kept me constantly involved and engaged me to the point I wanted to go to the cinema to see it again. When it comes out on DVD it will definitely be a must have buy for me. This film shows Efron is not just a 'pretty boy' teenage pin up with little to recommend him. He is a talented performer who just happens to be able to sing as well as act and act well. Please don't be swayed by the so called critics who demand art house complexity in order to praise a movie. Please put away any High School Musical bias you may have and watch it for yourself, you may be surprised how much you enjoy it.

a bit slowBy a customer , 29 Nov 2013Was a bit disappointed with this film. Very much a teen flick and i fell asleep as found it slow and a bit boring. Not enough action for me.

Charlie St. CloudBy Kela23 (636 reviews) , 05 Sep 2013Very disappointed in this film. I had high hopes but not the best I have seen from Zac Efron. He was very good and I think he has more than proved he has moved on from High School Musical! Was a bit of a twist but Sixth Sense did it better!
Love is the KeyBy Jackdon (6 reviews) from Peterborough , 01 Sep 2013Loved this movie. It was great to watch a good story without having to worry about gratuitous violence and foul language. The real world is violent and obscene enough.
