4.0 out of 5 stars Give it A chance.., 30 April 2008
This review is from: August Rush [DVD] (DVD)
I was kind of forced to watch this film on a flight from New York and was pleasantly surprised. I read a review on here that said the film was so bad he turned it off in the first 25 minutes. I felt exactly the same and the only reason I didn't was I had nothing better to do. The plot seemed so unrealistic and mushy it was almost unbearable, however the soundtrack was a plus and once Robin Williams joined the film and I accepted the film was a fairytale I enjoyed it more. An hour into the film I was totally hooked and wanted the boy to find his parents and the film to reach it's inevitable happy ending. It loses a star because it is quite slow to start with and at times quite patchy, the soundtrack and the scene when the father meets his son for the first time get the film 4 stars on it's own. The ending seems a bit rushed but I would recommend this if you like a good tear jerker, appreciate music and have visited New York.
