[7.00/10] The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)

The Time Traveler's Wife (2009)

Short review: "The Time Traveler's Wife"'s warm-hearted with some shades of drama and bits of recurring comedy. It's paced well and is more interested in what the time-traveling can or will do to love rather than the phenomenon itself. Here's where it gains it's strengths from - the fact that underneath all the explanations, antics, and gimmicks, it's still interested in examining feelings and emotions. That helps ground the movie and keeps it more poignant. The gorgeous Rachel McAdams, who seems to always devote herself to every character, played her role very passionately, on her part, the feelings and the romance were completely believable. Eric Bana was fine as Henry but he lacked a little something at times. Both leads are likable, and they have enough screen chemistry to be convincing as a couple. The supporting characters who are let in on the time traveler's secret are adeptly played, too. In addition to the wonderful performances of the leads, the vibrant cinematography and visual style of the film enhance the themes of life, death and eternal love.

  • My Rating: 7.00/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 38% (5.1/10)
  • IMDb: 7.2/10
