      Max Weiss Baltimore Magazine Before I Fall is one of the more pleasant surprises of the year. Rated: 3/4 Mar 9, 2017 Full Review Rafer Guzman Newsday Director Ry Russo-Young seems genuinely interested in tapping into these characters and reminding us what fresh hell adolescence brings each day, but the material resists her. Rated: 2/4 Mar 8, 2017 Full Review Richard Brody New Yorker There's little that the director, Ry Russo-Young, can do with the material's sentimental thinness, but she does something nonetheless ... Mar 6, 2017 Full Review Kip Mooney College Movie Review Takes Groundhog Day's concept to high school, but fails to do anything interesting with it. Rated: C- Aug 28, 2021 Full Review Leo Brady AMovieGuy.com Before I Fall is a plastic, phony effort of teenage melodrama, that struggles to give us a reason to enjoy going back to high school for one day, let alone repeat it over and over again. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 7, 2021 Full Review Vincent Schilling Indian Country Today How far can you emulate the 'Groundhog Day' story and still make a worthwhile film? Apparently far enough with 'Before I fall,' as I truly enjoyed it. Rated: 8.4/10 Jul 13, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Nikhil K It’s a classic “stuck in time loop” movie by director Ry Russo- Young. This is my one of the favourite genre, Thriller/Sci Fi. Movie explore high school teenage girl living her cupid day, again and again, until she does the right thing… The environment where film is based is surreal, pleasant weather shown in righteous way possible. Overall film editor has made it in blue shade overall. Actors are doing their job, just well. Even though movie starts pretty slow, I believe it’s justified and we also get compensated by lesser runtime. Overall, Movie is worth watching but I still enjoyed watching “Happy Death Day” which also explores on similar plot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/28/24 Full Review FEISTY I am guessing the people who voted this as a bad movie were the bullies in school. So they can't relate to how they made many of us feel. My high school years were very tough due to bullies. This is a must-see movie. One of the best I have seen lately. Heartfelt and true. Anyone with any type of feelings will enjoy this movie. The actress was amazing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/25/24 Full Review Nextech R This is one of those films that make you reflect on your life and your choices after completing it. A perfectly written script paired with beautiful cinematography, also while staying true to the novel it is based off of Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Meydiana R SPOILERS!!! In the beginning, I had high hopes for this movie as it seemed like one of those typical time loop movies, where the main character at some point realizes what they have to do differently and somehow change and have a long-lasting life outside the time loop. I loved that they showed the different stages the main character went through. And how their Character develops. My biggest problem is just the ending. And it is also the reason why this OK movie gets only one star. Don't get me wrong, I understand that the movie is supposed to be a reminder to live every day as if it were your last and to treat the people around you right. I also think it is symbolic of how ignorant people get towards each other. The ending to me just made no sense at all! How is sacrificing herself going to help anyone? She might have saved that girl's life this time but what about the future? The main character's friends are most likely not going to stop to bully that other girl... and maybe even blame her for their friends' death! And what about the guy she kisses in the end? What about him? He is always going to think of what could have happened if she hadn't run in front of that truck. The main character as a mean girl and bully gets around having to work on herself and get things straighten out. All in all this movie was a waste of time and not worth watching! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Kona B The first half of the movie is very dull, and Deutch's great acting was the only thing that got me through, but the third act is very compelling and the movie actually has a beautiful climactic ending Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/24 Full Review Julietta : The beginning was kinda slow, but as the story continued it got more and more interesting. Touching ending </3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Read all reviews
