When I first saw the trailer I thought that is going to be a successful movie just because Robert Pattinson stars. One day I was on the DVD store when I saw it. At first I didn't want to rent it, but I knew that is going to be a boring night without a movie, so I did.
It's about this guy who has family issues and one day he gets beat by a policeman. His best friend finds out that this policeman has a daughter who goes at the same university as they do, so he persuades him to make her fall for him and break her heart. But somewhere in between the guy and the girl fell for each other.
The movie has everything that promises:
Pierce Brosnan in a role that suits him best as the guy's dad who believes that with his work and his money is going to make things better. His role is one of those that needs an experience actor as him to be real as it looks.
For the girls: Robert Pattinson shirtless. BUT believe me when I say this. He is a good actor. His character has his ups and downs and Robert can make them look real. He convinces more for his acting skills than in the Twilight Saga.
Emilie de Ravin with tiny shorts that makes you feel jealous adout her body. Her character reminds me nothing from Claire in Lost. And it's an opportunity for us to see her like that and think that she will become more famous that she is already.
And then here comes the end. And I'm stuck in front of my TV with my eyes wide open thinking what the heck just happened. I am not one of those people that watch to many videos or read to many reviews and I'm glad about it. Because if I did, then probably I wouldn't believe what I saw. It was magical. This is the magic that the directors, screenwriters and actors try to make. And those guys did.
I don't know if you would like to see it or already saw it but I advice you that the movies that are not really those that we want to see, are those which surprise us best.
