I really can't understand the drubbing this movie has taken from the so called professional critics. All that I can think is that they are so prejudice against Efron due to his past Disney credentials, that they don't want to give him the credit for being a 'real actor' or consider him in any film that breaks him from the Disney High School Musical mold.

I have to admit that when I heard some of the reviews for this film I had few expectations for it. How wrong could I be. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Never did I clock watch, become bored or fidget in my seat. It kept me constantly involved and engaged me to the point I wanted to go to the cinema to see it again. When it comes out on DVD it will definitely be a must have buy for me. This film shows Efron is not just a 'pretty boy' teenage pin up with little to recommend him. He is a talented performer who just happens to be able to sing as well as act and act well. Please don't be swayed by the so called critics who demand art house complexity in order to praise a movie. Please put away any High School Musical bias you may have and watch it for yourself, you may be surprised how much you enjoy it.

The critics were harsh regarding this film, but as other reviews say: see this for yourself!

Charlie St. Cloud is a 2010 romantic drama film based on Ben Sherwood's best-selling novel. The film is directed by Burr Steers and stars Zac Efron and Amanda Crew.

Charlie St. Cloud (Zac Efron) is a sailor who wins a professional boating race on his sailboat, the "Splendid Splinter", along with his younger brother Sam (Charlie Tahan).

Later that night, Charlie is supposed to go to a graduation party with his friends, but his mother Claire (Kim Basinger) makes him babysit Sam. Charlie tries to sneak out and go to the party. But, he is caught by Sam, and Sam asks Charlie to drive him to his friend Tommy's house. On the way, they are involved in an accident and Sam dies. Charlie then makes a discovery: he can talk to the dead (and pretty much hang out with them, including his dead brother)

Five years later, Charlie, who gave up his scholarship and mournful over Sam's loss, is now caretaker at Waterside Cemetery, where he and Sam can be 'together'.

During a trip into town, Charlie visits the boat docks and meets Tess Carroll (Amanda Crew), a sailor who dreams of one day sailing around the world. Charlie has the hots for Tess, as she does for him.

Giving away more would be wrong, but Charlie has to face a choice between his vigil for the dead Sam, or real life and a shot at love. Herein, perhaps an implicit message lies for many of us: learn to let go of the past, and embrace and live your life fully, in all its imperfections.

Never corny or silly, this movie weaves its charm well. A major factor is the two leads, who are not only extraordinarily beautiful, but can also act. I loved Zac Efron after 'Me and Orson Wells', and newcomer Amanda Crew shines too.

Highly recommended.

Real good film I am a fan of efron anyway, think he has really broken from the Disney past well, and has released some solid films this is another. And if u have a little brother (like me) it has a bit of extra meaning, good film good acting I'd advice most efron films, he is a genuinely good actor.

Was surprised by this film - I expected it to be bland butthought I would give it a chance - it is strangely gripping and I really enjoyed it - some very good plot twists - only reason it doesnt get 5 stars is a couple of points in the movie are there just to make the ending - they don't match the rest of the movie

A truly beautiful story about, as it says, In life you have to live, love and then let go. Zac Effron is very good in the part of an older brother and his much loved younger sibling, in a sweet story which should have one in tears by the end. See it and enjoy every moment,and love it as I did.

this is a fantastic film. I was enthralled the whole way through, and has gone on to watch it many times. One of the best fils that I have seen in a long time. Zac Efron is brilliant to watch, and the way that he portrays Charlie he captures the emotional bond between him and Sam brilliantly. It makes it very believable.

This film was superb. Zac Efron never fails to deliver on the acting front, but the story line and meaning behind the film has so much depth and emotion within it that this film brought a tear to my eye on more than one occasion. Whilst the film bore particular relevance to myself having lost a young cousin to cancer earlier this year, i think this film would appeal to many different people, especially the women who are after a bit of emotional Efron action!
