same old stuff

What is with Nicolas Spark movies and that keep shelving out the same line of production movie after movie or in his case book after book?

Yes admittedly he is an institution in itself. There is a whole lot of people who are fan of his books and the movies that are made based on them. He is like a guru for all the Romantic die hards but even so no one can deny there is the same underlying theme in each story

First meeting, followed by romance and breakup and in the background they have a past story running which strangely resembles the current love story and end up giving the valuable lessons that will re unite the young lovers again and the movie “The Longest Ride” delivers on the same plot line with exception of situations and settings

Chemistry between Scott Eastwood as Luke Collins and Britt Robertson as Sophia Danko is not fiery enough to put the screens on fire but not lukewarm to lose the charm as well and same goes for the second couple whose story is being narrated in the background.



The movie for me does not have anything different from the usual Nicolas spark romance. The chemistry between the stars is average. Story is fair enough nothing much fancy or romantic but then I am not a romance addict as such as. So for me it is just another passable movie
