‘Everything Everything’ A Love Story that is cheesy and predictable
I enjoy a good romantic movie every now and again. When done right, they can tell a touching story. Yet when they try too hard, the opposite can happen. Everything Everything appears like some new and original on paper. I was able to see it early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Everything Everything here:
Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) is a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who is unable to leave the protection of the hermetically-sealed environment within her house because of an illness. Olly (Nick Robinson) is the boy next door who won’t let that stop them from being together. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, Maddy and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together, even if it means losing everything.
Everything Everything is an okay movie, but it is far from perfect. The story is painfully predictable pretty much from the moment these two people meet. What really hurt the movie in my eyes though was one character in particular. Their personality and reasons for doing what they did are unforgivable, and makes it very hard to feel bad for them at all. Overall they hurt the film a lot in my eyes, and made every scene they are in a pain to watch. If you want to learn more about Everything Everything click on this website.
Everything Everything gets 4/10. The cast does the best they can with what they are given, but there isn’t anything they could do to make this a good movie. It is your normal love conquers all story, and although it has some tweaks to it, there are few surprises along the way. The only one I didn’t see coming really dragged the film down a ton. Some people may like this film, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
