Need to watch all the way through,
This review is from: August Rush [DVD] (DVD)
I have never written a review before, but I couldn't help myself after watching this film.
True, it does start out slow, but the middle and the end completely make up for it. It is wholly entrancing and it's such a joy to be able to forget reality for a moment and just believe in the fairytale. (Completely corny I know, but it seems to work for this film.)
I thought maybe it would just be for girls, but about 10 minutes in to my second viewing, my 15 year old brother wandered in and surprised me with getting extremeley involved in the film. I don't think I've seen him watch anything other than action films for a good many years, yet he (like me) was on his feet at the end, cheering on the characters.
Do not judge this film until you have watched it all the way through!
