BEFORE I FALL MOVIE REVIEW
Before I Fall is directed by Ry Russo-young and stars Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Kian Lawly, Jennifer Beals, Diego Boneta, and Elena Kampouris. The plot of the movie is February 12 is just another day in Sam's charmed life, until it turns out to be her last. Stuck reliving her last day over one inexplicable week, Sam untangles the mystery around her death and discovers everything she's losing. The trailers for this movie did look interesting, even though the reliving the same day thing has been done a million times. This is a completely average movie nothing really stands out. The movie is about ninety minutes long and it took an hour for me to get into it. The biggest reason why it took me such a long time to get into the movie was because of the characters they are hard to like. Zoey Deutch's character Sam is a complete bitch and her group of snotty friends is if possible worse. So this group of four bitches are the Mean Girls of the high school and they terrorize this other girl named Juliet they call her names and they throw drinks at her. So you don't give a damn what happens to these people. Even when Sam starts reliving the same day I still found her to be very unlikable. I was convinced that this was going to end up being my least favorite movie of the year, but then we get to the final thirty minutes of the film where Sam decides to stop being a complete bitch I found the character to be a lot more pleasant. I like that she realized that she needs to change things about herself and I like that she did that and turned out to be nice. So the final thirty minutes I enjoyed and then the movie ends and I wished the whole movie could have been like that. The parts were she is reliving the same day I thought would get repetitive, but she does do different things each time. I did like Zoey Deutch performance and am interested in seeing what else she does. 2 out of 5 stars for Before I fall. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
