Starring: Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams, Jessica Lange, Sam Neil
Director: Michael Sucsy
Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams have already tackled the romance genre before with the likes of Dear John and The Notebook under his belt and they have joined forces for new movie The Vow.
Tatum and McAdams take on the roles of Leo and Paige, a married couple whose lives are turned upside down after a car accident.
When Paige wakes up from a coma she discovers that she has suffered severe memory loss and doesn’t remember Leo or their time together.
But Leo remains true to the marriage vows that he took and endeavours to win the heart of his wife all over again.
This is a real heart-tugger of a movie, even more so when you discover that is based on a true story, and Tatum and McAdams are perfect together.
The chemistry between the pair really does keep the moving flowing, even when Paige struggles to recollect her time with her husband there is still a spark between the two.
McAdams delivers a particularly emotional performance as she is left to discover who she is and build a new life.
Tatum & McAdams are really likeable lead characters and you can’t help but feel for the plight that they both face; Leo is just as much a victim as Paige as he loses the wife that he loves.
This is an incredibly touching story about love triumphing over all odds not only that it is a movie that looks at the idea of discovering yourself and having the strength of conviction to follow the path you want for yourself.
Ok perhaps the movie is not as tear-jerking as it could been but it is an incredibly heart-warming movie that I enjoyed from beginning to end.
Plus there is quite unique and intriguing concept, we haven’t seen a romance movie like this before, but it just misses that little bit of magic that could have made a great movie.
