Reviews: The Choice (2016)

choiceHere are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Spare me.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The 11th film adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel and if you’ve seen one, then there is a good chance you know everything about this movie. I suppose it’s fine for date night, but that only applies to a date who wants nothing to do with post-film conversation about deeper themes and messages. You’ll fine none of those here.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: It’s neither good nor bad, just by-the-numbers bait that will satisfy its undiscriminating target audience. At the end of the day, you have to make the choice for yourself.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • [New – 2/25/16] | James Marsh @ South China Morning Post
    • Excerpt: The perfect lives of two beautiful people living in an idyllic small-town setting are thrown into chaos when they fall in love in The Choice, the eleventh screen adaptation of a work by hugely successful pulp romance author turned film producer Nicholas Sparks – think John Grisham without the law degree.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: There’s not a single moment of emotional honesty in this latest helping of meretricious melodrama from the pen of Nicholas Sparks, but that probably won’t stop his fans from sighing and weeping over its ham-fisted mixture of giggly romance and cheap sentiment.
