While certainly inspiring, noble and sincere, this slightly overlong fact-based romance/drama falls prey to the traps of schmaltz, manipulation and formula (at times bordering on cliche, especially in its soundtrack and cinematography).While certainly inspiring, noble and sincere, this slightly overlong fact-based romance/drama falls prey to the traps of schmaltz, manipulation and formula (at times bordering on cliche, especially in its soundtrack and cinematography). Admittedly, the film does tend to get better as it goes along (save for its drawn-out concluding segment) and features capable performances by Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, who make the material look better than it really is. However, despite these strengths, much of the film seems all too familiar and plays more like a made-for-TV movie than a theatrical release. You'll come away from this one feeling inspired and uplifted, but you're unlikely to feel cinematically fulfilled. Expand

The sentimentality and emotional manipulation almost knock it down, it's a pity, because although I would not go so far as to say that the good work of Andrew Garfield is wasted, but without a doubt the film is too forgettable to go any further.

This movie had a lot of things wrong with it, but the things that distracted me most was the expositional dialogue and Andrew Garfield's performance. If you watch "The Theory of Everything", you get better writing and acting. The redeemingThis movie had a lot of things wrong with it, but the things that distracted me most was the expositional dialogue and Andrew Garfield's performance. If you watch "The Theory of Everything", you get better writing and acting. The redeeming qualities were Claire Foy's performance, playing a role that we all know she can do well, and the exposure of how badly people with disabilities were treated not long ago. That does not excuse it's quintessentially Oscar-baity production value and sterility, which diminishes the sting of the message it tries to land. Mediocre. Expand
