Remember Me Movie Reviews: Not Good

by at . Comments

Well, there's always Eclipse.

While Robert Pattinson fans are excited over that movie's first official trailer, we have some sobering news: movie critics have responded harshly to the actor's first starring role as an actual human being.

Most of the Remember Me reviews are more critical of the script and the story than of the performances by Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin, but the following excerpts can't be what anyone associated with the film wishes to hear:

A small, dense chamber study of unhappy people looking for hope in the darkness, often literally. - Houston Chronicle

I hate the ending. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. I hate it more than Kim Basinger hates Alec Baldwin. I hate it more than Garfield hates Mondays.  - Wafflemovies.com

In Remember Me love means never having to say you’re sorry, particularly to the audience. - The New York Times

Remember Me represents Robert Pattinson's attempt to prove he can do more than sparkle like a faux vampire, but the case he presents is not convincing. - ReelViews

If Remember Me is remembered for anything at all, other than being yet another Robert Pattinson vehicle, it will be for its over-the-top ending, which ranks high amongst the most shameless jerkers of tears ever unleashed upon lachrymose teens.  - The Toronto Star

There's no shame in exploring tragedy through art. But exploiting it to make your very ordinary movie feel more important? That's another story. - The New York Daily News

Mini-spoiler warning: The movie is set in 2001, soon after 9/11. It sounds like many critics take exception to the film's depiction and possible manipulation of that tragic event in American history.

Remember Me opens today. Will you go see it this weekend? If so, write in and share your views with the THG world.

You critics are a bunch of A-holes that probably have not even seen the movie. Why are people still going to see it. It is ranked #12 and has surpassed the gross of The Hurt Locker, a picture winning many awards. It wasn't cheap to use 9/ll for it was used tastefully. This movie was one of the best movies that I have ever seen. It was so real, it was like you were sitting right next to the actors. Of course, the ending was sad, but I left the theater wanting to go back in and see it again. It make me rethink my own life and that is a good thing. If the movie makes 20M that is a stepping stone for Rob and the rest of the cast. He could have backed out on the movie, but he didn't for he believe in it and I am so happy he did for I can't wait until the DVD comes out, neither can all of my friends. This movie was judged too early by the Rob haters.

Very good movie!! And the thing about critics is that the will call the worst movie the best and the best movie the worst..Haha. They wouldn't know a good movie if it bit them in the butt. =]

excellent movie and excellent acting. i loved the relationships -- tyler with his sister, his brother, his father, ally, mother. the characters were as well developed as a two hour or less movie will allow. i never listen to the critics--bitter haters who really have no concept of what real people who go to the movies want to see. 911 was not exploited in any way, in my humble opinion. it was an honest look -- think about it, life turns on a dime! i completely enjoyed this movie!

I LOVED this movie.... Yes, I like Rob as an actor, thought more as a musician, but I thought the way both he & Emilie protrayed these characters was amazing. They make you feel like you are watching a real relationship... make you feel like you are there w/ them. Great job!! Rob is much more than a pretty face ..... talent spills over!!.... Let us not forget Emilie de Ravin, she did a great job....lots of chemistry!!

this movie doesn't exploit anything. it was fantastic. for someone who lived through 9/11, it's nice to see a movie look at the lives of the people affected. incredible movie.
