Movie Review - Endless Love

As many of you know, I'm a total sucker for high school movies, so when something like Endless Love comes along, I'm in Swoonsville.

I didn't initially know this, but it is actually a remake of the original 1981 film with Brooke Shields playing the lead. I haven't seen that version and I will probably try to track it down if I can. I love being able to compare, but it'll be hard pressed to beat this 2014 version. In my opinion, it was perfection.

I absolutely loved it. Already a fan of Alex Pettyfer, I found the character he played easy to fall in love with. His view on love and his soft manner when it came to the girl of his dreams was just exquisite. I liked that he was flawed, that past issues he'd dealt with still surfaced when he was under pressure. It made him human.

The girl - Jade Butterfield (played by Gabriella Wilde) was enchanting. She was tall and willowy and I loved how she put up a fight for her man. Her smile and energy beside her leading man was vibrant. The actors definitely had an on-screen chemistry.

There's actually nothing in the movie I could fault, except for the fact that a few of the scenes I saw in the preview were not in the movie. I was looking out for them and was disappointed when they didn't come up. Thankfully these scenes would have just been ad added bonus rather than the making of the movie. I will definitely be watching it again in the not so distance future. It's a keeper for my collection.
