Winter's Tale (2014) Movie Reviews
User reviews on Winter's Tale (2014)
All these romantic movies are coming out on Valentines day and I was pretty sure that I will hate all of them. Well, so far I have seen just this one and I hate it, so it’s not a good start. The film is hopelessly romantic but not in a good way, in a very sappy and annoying way. The characters were unconvincing and the storyline was as loopy as it gets, it was just overall not a good film. I have read the novel and this film does not come close to the beauty and the grace that the book possesses.
I really wanted to like this book, I really did but it was just not good and I was very disappointed with it. I have read the novel and it was very beautiful and kind of magical, however this film did not capture that at all. The movie was clumsy and inert and even though it was full of romance, it was just not believable. I felt that the film was all surface and it had nothing inside. Maybe I am just too cynical for this movie and some people might find it charming, but I highly doubt it.
