Remember Me follows the stories of Tyler and Ally, both troubled, both with dysfunctional families, and both with an intense amount of baggage. When a dare leads Tyler to ask Ally out, it soon leads to a budding romance and a trust the two learn to rely on. Neither of their lives are perfect, and their drama is overwhelming, but the two forge a bond that connects them and carries them through the film.
You know, I thought long and hard about this one, and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about it. Tyler and Ally, played by Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin, respectively, are not altogether endearing separately, but they work together. Their personalities balance one another, and their connection onscreen worked.
That said, I found the relationship between Tyler and his father, played by Pierce Brosnan rather trying. I felt the connection between Tyler and his sister Caroline, played by Ruby Jerins to be a heck of a lot more believable and endearing. I also discovered that Robert Pattinson can actually act. Please don't hate me, but his role in the Twilight Saga just doesn't do him justice. (Though yes, his hair still confuses me.)
The ending is honestly what I felt was completely unnecessary in this film. We felt the heartbreak already. We felt the angst between Tyler and Ally. We knew that although this movie moved at a snail's pace most of the time, there was a purpose to it. I don't feel incorporating a national tragedy was necessary to prove the point. That's just me though...the fact is, I left the theatre feeling downright hollow.
I'll give this movie a decent 3 out of 5 because, for the most part, I think the acting was extremely strong, though the plot was predictable. I'd recommend this only for mature viewers, and I'd urge you to remember, this is not a feel-good movie! Below is the trailer for those who've yet to see it.
