Before We Go (2014)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“You can’t allow the ones you love to determine how you love.” – Harry

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 Sep 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Two strangers meet in the middle of New York City at night and help each other get through the difficulties of the night

Bottom Line – Intriguing idea that just doesn’t work well enough. Chris Evans and Alice Eve are both talented actors, but their characters don’t seem to have good enough chemistry for us to really believe this story.  Similar kinds of films have worked better than this one does and the dialogue isn’t poignant enough.  One obviously can compare the film to any of the films in Richard Linklater’s ‘Before trilogy’ and these films are far superior to this one which makes it must more difficult to watch this and care about the characters.  They fail to develop these characters better and they aren’t sympathetic or engaging enough in the movie.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In an interview, Chris Evans said one of the reasons they liked Alice Eve was because she is British, and they wanted her character to have a British accent. After she was cast, however, Eve decided she wanted to play her character as American. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
