All I See is You (2017)
I did not expect much from this movie. I am not a big fan of Jason Clarke because I just feel that he is an overrated actor. Blake Lively is really sort of hit or miss. Marc Forster has proved to be decent director, so I thought I would give this movie a chance.
All I See is You is a story about a blind woman who gets an operation to regain her sight. Life as she knows it changes when she can see again. She and her husband begin to see negative changes in each other and it affects their marriage.
The movie was directed by Marc Forster and the noteworthy cast includes Blake Lively, Jason Clarke, Danny Huston, Ahna O’Reilly, Miquel Fernandez, Yvonne Strahovski, and Wes Chatham.
The first thing that I thought about this movie was that Blake Lively would definitely have to be blind to be married to a guy like Jason Clarke. That casting was just poor and unrealistic. Also, it seems like they dumb down Lively’s looks a bit for the movie. Maybe that was because they realized that there was a definite mismatch in that relationship on film. She is out of his league and they knew it.
Blake Lively was cast against type. Her part in the movie was just not fitting to everything else that she has done up until this point. It was just not believable. Or, maybe she did not make it believable. Either way, it just did not work.
There really is not much to this movie. It felt long and drawn out. It did not really seem to get entertaining until it was just about over. There was just no follow-through to what they were trying to achieve in this film.
There were a bunch of unnecessary scenes that were just not pertinent to the story. On top of that, there was some unnecessary nudity that was possibly trying to be artistic, but just came off as awkward.
Overall, All I See is You is a boring, and messed up movie. The acting is bad, and the casting was worse. It is not even worth a cheap rental. Do not waste your time, like I did mine.
I rate this movie a 2 on a scale of 1-10.
