Reviews for this film from our members:
Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
Excerpt: By no means am I calling The Age of Adaline a great film, but for what it was, a fantasy-based love story, it works wonderfully.
José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
Excerpt: Drama romántico con un toque fantástico tristemente desarrollado y escasamente atractivo para quienes no sean incondicionales de su protagonista principal y aquellos que disfruten de los fondos de armario extensos y bien lucidos. Para el resto: castañazo.
Tim Brayton @ Antagony & Ecstasy
Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]
Excerpt: Una película romántica que se queda en el relato fantástico y no logra ser el relato romántico emocional que podría haber sido si los guionistas hubieran puesto mayor atención a los detalles.
Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
Excerpt: For all its melodramatic mopey-ness, The Age of Adaline mostly treads water to its anti-climactic conclusion.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: a strange film, hooked as it is on a character intent on revealing little. Lively, smartly costumed and coiffed in a modernized retro look, leans on a mannered way of speaking bolstered with a skittish fragility to embody her timeless character.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: [T]he movie’s devotion to her current romantic predicament feels like such a wasted opportunity.
James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
Kimberly Gadette @ Doddle
Excerpt: Adaline is an 107-year-old mash-up of Hawking, Holmes and Mario Andretti, all dressed up in Gucci with nowhere to go. What a fascinating character the screenwriters never bothered to develop.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: Fantastical – yet perhaps too reserved and tastefully restrained for its own good.
Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: This heartfelt romance is a real throwback. It won’t get respect, but it should.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: A pleasant and undemanding romantic drama that takes great care not to upset you unduly with strong emotion or embarrassing passion.
Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
Excerpt: Blake Lively looks great for 107 years old and delivers a knockout performance – a cut above the standard Nicholas Sparks romance
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: While not as memorable as its premise, “The Age of Adaline” still works its spell as an affecting fable for grown-ups that’s been made with pearl-like beauty and wisdom.
Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
Dan Lybarger @ www.arkansasonline.com
Excerpt: The Age of Adaline is not really a movie. It’s more like two movies fighting for the same screen at the same time.
Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
Excerpt: Para os românticos incuráveis será uma opção interessante, já os restantes espectadores ficarão facilmente saturados
Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: Adaline is well put-together by director Lee Toland Krieger (The Vicious Kind), beautifully shot (especially in flashbacks) by David Lanzenberg, and holds a genuine affection for both its characters and the city of San Francisco, which is featured prominently throughout.
