Just relax and enjoy the movie. Don't read the professional reviews first. Yes- it is a feel good movie and Freddie Highmore is spellbinding! His smile is contagious. Anyone who has ever worked with gifted children will relate.
Music is spectacular....acting and story just wonderful....a "feel-good" movie with a message of hope and faith.....why not believe in love?
I absolutely LOVE this movie. An endearing story line. Stunning music and definitely a pick you up.
If you cant lose yourself in this movie, then you obviously have no passion, nor hope of such in your life. This movie clearly defines and portrays what each of us need to look for and find in our individual lifes.
wonderful music . great acting, thoroughly enjoyed......how come I didn;t see it when it 1t came out!!!!!
This isn't Oliver Twist or Disney. True musicians will understand the profound, deeper references in August Rush. If music is more than a time-filler to you, if music is mandatory in your life, August Rush will speak to your heart and the music of your soul.
Awesome movie! Loved it! Excellent story and exceptional cast.
Sorry but this wasn't that good to me. Predictable!
wish there was more to the end of the movie about what happened after he found them ...
absolutely breathtaking....lovely cast and cute kid
What a beautiful and magical film...
this movie was amazing
Fantastic performance by such a talented young man.
Williams hasn't been this affecting since RV.
The romance between Jonathan and Keri Russell was magical. I could watch this movie over and over. The soundtrack was also unforgettable. Great Movie!
best film about listen heart...beaituful ;-)
Good idea for a movie. Terrible acting and terrible timing..I found it disapointing.
AWSOME!! I LOVED THE MUSIC!! =)
WOW! Very good! The best performance by Freddie Highmore and a great film. 4 stars.
I thought it was very good. Freddie Highmore is at his best performance. 3 stars.
I found it dull. Not very funny.
A great family and romantic movie. Nice to see something everyone can enjoy. I wanted a little more from Keri Russle, but I will live!
predictable but so cute!
Liked it. Different and quite touching.
Open your mind and let this movie and its music flow into your heart. Truly inspirational. I thought it'd be a bad story, but was just too good for words!
I wonderful story for anyone who has music with them.
Wonderful touching story. A modern day fairy tail.
cliched, overdone, overhyped, yet again a hammy robin williams chews his way through the film and wrecks it even for the relatively small amount of time he's in it
Honestly, this is the best movie I have seen in a LONG time. Really good acting. It was just an amazing movie!
a wonderful story has you sitting on the edge ofyour seat. I give this movie a 5 star.I would say had some mystery, a bit of romance, but most of all i would say it had a lesson in there of knowing what you want & going for it. Doing what your heart says knowing what is right for you & letting know one stopping you from your goal. It was a very moving movie. This is a movie you must see don't miss it,you want to appaulde at the end of it.
I think this movie touches some people durastically and some people not at all. It is AMAZING! This is one of the best movies I have EVER seen. I left inspired. In my opinion, it's more than a movie.
acting was lacking..storyline was cliche and the transitions were rushed..some might find it heart warming
I loved this film :O) Happy upbeat nd clean. Full of love and inspiration :O)
The best feel good movie of the year. After a summer filled with movies with smut and swearing through out, it is nice to see a good romantic drama with fantastic music too. A steady build up through the whole movie. Excellent!
I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! It definitely wasn't my first choice and I would never have watched it had it not been for my friend, but I was amazed at how good it was! Definitely something I'd recommend.
absolutely the best movie of the year!
I am an avid movie lover and I would have to say without a shadow of a doubt, this would have to be one of the best movies I have ever seen. Being a male, not really emotionally driven, no movie has ever been able to move me the way this has.
Robin Williams and the kid were amazing. Music so creatively moving. So glad my friends dragged me into this.
Beautiful Just awesome Touching story Inspiring Catchy music Great times.
it was a unbelieveable movie. touching and everything. the only bad thing was a bad ending, i wanted to see at least a little bit more. but still a great movie.
I AM ONLY EIGHT YEARS OLD AND HOPED THIS WOULD BE A GOOD MOVIE. I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND IT WAS A GREAT MOVIE --- ONLY MOVIE THAT I HAVE SEEN THAT IS BETTER IS EMPIRE OF THE SUN. CONOR G.
Excellent movie! Feel good, positive, upbeat. Makes the unbelievable believable. Everyone should see this movie and buy it when it comes out on DVD!!
too cute for words.. you have to watch it yourself. soundtrack is awesome and so are the actors.
This is by far the cutest movie this year. So good! if you love Love then you will love this.
music lovers will love it.. bleeding hearts will love it ... but warning: check your brain at the door, the lack of logic will blow your mind
The idea was interesting but it never really got there...it was an Oliver Twist meets Curious George type adventure. Don't pay full price for it.
This movie was a great example of how music affects people and can connect them. I think that this movie brings people together with its main character. MUSIC!
this movie was over the top cheese....it could have been so much better if it wasn't laid on so thick.
