The acting is TERRIBLE, the character development was barely a 5. There were multiple plot-holes and the relevance to actual Boyhood and growing up wasn't very much. I know this because I'm a 14 year old boy and I went to watch this film with various other friends who are also my age and gender.
The reason that this movie is rated so highly is because most, if not all, major critics are a lot older than I. They don't experience this movie the same way that my friends and I do. People my age are still experiencing "Boyhood" and are far more informed about movies like this, if you were to ask me I'd say that major companies should hire younger critics. Our opinions are more in sync and much more relevant. Don't praise the young actors for their "talent," I guess they were okay for their age but that shouldn't change how you rate it. Even when the main character's actor was 18 he was still pretty bad.
The thing that annoyed me the most in this film was when they tried to make the characters sound all philosophical. It doesn't fool anyone, it just sounded extremely corny.
I honestly enjoyed watching the actors grow but that was about it. Don't believe the hype, I had more fun making fun of this movie with my friends than actually watching it. It was okay.… Full Review »
Lucy stars Scarlett Johansen and Morgan Freeman, why wouldn't you be excited? The movie spent a lot on 2 big hollywood stars, but had little money left to get better supporting actors. The movie had potential, it sounded interesting and look good, but it unfortunate didn't live up to it. It wasn't bad, but wasn't exciting for me, i was sadly disappointed with this movie. It was boring at certain parts, a bit confusing ,and just didn't catch me. Overall, it was decent but nothing special.… Full Review »
Overall an underwhelming movie. It's not that there are a lot of negatives but it's more along the lines that nothing in the movie really stands out as "amazing". The characters are all forgettable and you don't ever really get close to any of them. The plot isn't bad but you don't get to understand why the bad guys are so bad until too late in the movie and by then you're just waiting for the end. Recommend rent.… Full Review »
Badly Written!!! Badly Produced!!! I just don't know. JD has never been in such a boring movie. Worst new release I ever paid for. His acting talents are so WASTED in this dead production. JD get it together and feature in something more attuned to your acting abilities. :(… Full Review »
