  1. There is, quite simply, a rather refreshing ordinariness to Remember Me in the unflashy, knuckle-down attention it gives to character development and the building of plausible and involving family and friend dynamics.
  2. The scenes between Pattinson and de Ravin exude genuine charm.
  3. Charged up with stormy melodrama.
  4. Pattinson could have the makings of a brilliant career, something more than the hot streak he's got going as the "it" guy of the moment. The same problems plague the film, which is beautifully shot but its emotional potential unrealized.
  5. 42
    The major problem with Pattinson’s ascendancy to the Dean throne: His soulfulness is a pose, an effect achieved more by hair and makeup (and yes, genetics) than the scenes where he’s required to emote at high volume.
  6. Hoping for a little emotional manipulation with your popcorn? Look no further.
  7. 12
    The movie crassly repurposes tragedy to excuse its cliches.

    It was a very beautiful movie, it had humor but tragedy as well, the ending was very unexpected and the movie delivered a great message about life to the viewers. Robert Pattinson is a great young actor and he has a big future. Expand

    A lot of people seem to have a problem with the ending, to feel that it is "cheap" or "exploitative." However, for me, it made a tragedy real to me which was previously too abstract; it made me more able to empathize with the people who really have experienced that tragedy. Rather than exploiting a tragedy, I believe that it brought the tragedy - and its victims - back to the forefront of people's minds, helped us to "Remember," much like the title suggests. Expand

    This movie has left a lasting impression on me. Robert Pattinson was mesmerizing, but the entire cast was good. The story was beautifully crafted and the scenes of New York ranged from gritty to postcard beautiful. I have gone back to see it several times since it opened with various friends. To a person everyone was extremely impressed with the film. I hope movie goers will give it a chance and not believe some of the more outlandish reviews. It is a well done movie with heart that exploits nothing. Expand

    I am not a Twilight fan. I am not a Robert Pattinson fan. I am not a fan of chic flicks, or romantic films in general. And yet, I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I, like other users on here, do not understand the critic bashing the film has recieved. Robert Pattinson shows with the film that he's acting capabilities are far beyond that of a emotionless vampire. Tyler, his character, is not a good guy. I dont necessarily like the character.. but what Robert does with the character, is create a sense of realism about him. Hes not perfect. This film is one of the very few "romantic" films that I enjoyed purely because it doesnt need to rush things along. It stays with the characters, explores them, and allows us to connect with them. Only twice in the film did I feel it resorted to a Hollywood chilche.. but by film end- all was forgiven. An amazing film that I really wish people would just see. It stays with you well after the films end. Expand

    Good god, what a Terrible movie. Horrible performance by Pattinson and the premise is just moronic. 3 people walked out when the "twist" came. Pierce Brosnan is poor also. Expand
