The Last Song
I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*
Rating; PG for, "Thematic material, some violence, sensuality and mild language."
Staring; Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
Released; 31st of March, 2010.
Veronica 'Ronnie' (Miley Cyrus) Miller and her little brother Jonah (Bobby Coleman) go to visit their father Steve (Greg Kinnear), for the summer, who lives on the coast of Georgia. Ronnie soon meets a boy named Will (Liam Hemsworth) Blakelee, they fall in love. But things go bad when they find out not only is Ronnie's dad sick, and will soon pass, but also the church that, it was though, Steve accidentally burnt down wasn't actually his fault, and Will knew who's fault it was. Though the issue of the burn church was figured out, Ronnie was too upset that Will didn't say who it was until so long later, she didn't even want to forgive him. Though he knew she was mad at him, he when to her fathers funeral. Ronnie played a song for her dad at the funeral, she hadn't played the piano, but once, since her parents were divorced. After the funeral she went back to her father's house and was packing up his things when she saw Will waiting on the beach, she walked out to see him. She wasn't expecting this she had assumed he had already gone away to college, she was wrong he loved her so much, he had to see her again. He said he was thinking about transferring to another school he was accepted to in New York, down the road to where she would be going, Julliard, Ronnie was so excited.
Okay so in case you hadn't guessed by the commercials this was a typical love story. Two young people fall in love, there's a beach, someone dies, there's a fight. But though it wasn't anything great and new, I liked it, it was entertaining. It was worth the rental cost. It had some emotion I didn't think Miley Cyrus was capable of, I thought her performance was good. Through out most of the movie it kind of seemed that they called it the last song because it was the thing that came to their head, but you figure it out. I thought it was good, it can be somewhat of a tearjerker movie, but not to much.
To sum it up, it was good.
