I just saw this today, less than 12 afters after discovering that Paul had been killed in a tragic car accident.

May you rest in peace sir.

This film was exceptionally acted by Paul, his daughter should be very proud.

It is the story of Nolan Hayes and his wife Abigail.

Abigail goes into labour early and is rushed into hospital, unfortunately this happens on the day hurricaine katrina strikes new orleans and she dies in child birth.

Nolans daughter is then placed inside an incubator with a ventilator to keep her breathing for 48 hours, after which the doctors tell him, she should be able to breathe on her own.

Trouble is, the waves hit, the lights go out, the power dies, the hospital evacuates, the baby cant be moved, and they promise to send help back for him, and Nolan has to try and keep his daughter alive completely alone.

This is a heartbreaking tragedy and Paul is on screen 100% of the entire film, is is a 1 person character drama.

By the time it ended i had tears streaming down my face.

Tragically this is the best he has ever acted, extremely emotional haggard performance, not oscar winning but brilliant.

The cover art is deceptive by the way as this is not an action movie, but is depicted as such.

Definitely worth the watch.

Hours was one of the last films starring the late Paul Walker, and I believe he was also involved in some of the production and writing of this movie given his close connections to working with disaster relief through his charity Reach Out Worldwide. I think that first-hand experience certainly shone through in this movie and Paul was able to channel some of that emotion into the character.

[Spoiler alert]

The movie follows a father who is trying to keep his baby daughter alive following Hurricane Katrina. The opening scenes show Nolan losing his wife in childbirth and his daughter then being put onto a ventilator machine to support her as she has been born early. As the hospital evacuates in the wake of Hurricane Katrina Nolan is left behind with his daughter, no electricity, food or water and only a manually-charged generator to keep the aparatus his daughter depends on working.

I felt the movie was really tastefully done, and if you dig enough there are some themes beneath the story although it is not your action-packed adventure that you might be used to with Paul Walker. It certainly made me cry in the end!

Having watched the exciting trailer for Paul Walker's film Hours on Empire magazine's movie trailers it was clear that the film was a scope 2:40:1 aspect ratio, so I bought a copy today looking forward to enjoy it in scope on my 37inch screen. However on checking the film out, imagine my disappointment to see the British release had been trimmed down to 1:85:1. Why should the distributors deny the public access to its original aspect ratio. Well, I shall do without watching it and return it to the shop tomorrow. So . . . beware you fans who enjoy watching films in their correct and original aspect ratio because Hours has been tampered with and looks the poorer for it.

This was made during a break he took from Fast and Furious. So this is his last ever film before he was horribly killed in a car crash. the storyline is really a heartfelt and you can almost see that he isn't acting it's really him as he was. It's a heartfelt film that would bring anyone to tears. I didn't show my tears but I should have because inside I was crying and outside I suffered because I didn't show my emotions. I possibly will the next time I see this. So if anyone ever thinks that Fast and Furious 7 was his last film it wasen't it was this one.

This movie is long. I ve always loved paul walker and even though he is a good actor, this movie was just very very long. There is action but the atmosphere is so heavy that time seem longer than it is. RIP Paul, love you still.

Like his other film Roadkill, the cast is very small and the focus is on Paul Walkers character. It is one of his best performances, enjoyed the film, with an 8/10! With it being based on a natural disaster, the ending isn't perdictable which makes a change. Given a few more films like this Paul Walker would of been able to give an Oscar performance and win. Young life cut short. Worth a watch though

This film was delivered quickly and un damaged a really heart touching film. This film is very well made and shows a different role for Paul Walker which will prove to all that he can play any role fantastically .
