      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The cast gives it their all, and Paltrow handles her songs with aplomb, but Country Strong's cliched, disjointed screenplay hits too many bum notes.

      Nick Pinkerton Sight & Sound If McGraw had been armed with a microphone, perhaps the movie could have gained something in symmetry; if Kelly had a grounding in social history, perhaps she could better be believed. Mar 29, 2011 Full Review Philip French Guardian The movie has its moments, but the characters are fuzzy around the edges... Mar 28, 2011 Full Review David Sexton London Evening Standard No saving grace here. Rated: 2/5 Mar 25, 2011 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Another example of the genre, with its stars flickering between meowing melodies. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 9, 2022 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Unfortunately, Feste's unsteady directorial hand loses control of the film. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 5, 2020 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens Country Strong is like a dramatic washing machine - the laundry load hasn't had sufficient pre-soak and whites are mixed with colors, resulting in a bleeding into monotone bland.

      Kirsten W I've watched this movie a few times and I always enjoy the ride. The music is good and their are a lot of compelling moments among the characters. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Carlos T Filme: Onde o Amor Está! Elenco: @gwynethpaltrow @garretthedlund @thetimmcgraw @itsmeleighton Modelo: #musical #drama Duração: 2h Ano: 2010 Minha opinião: Para quem assistiu Nasce uma Estrela com Lady Gaga e Bradley Cooper, irá ver aqui a mesma estoria, porem menor. Temos como protagonista Kelly que é casada com James que também o seu agente, mas que não vive mais como marido e mulher. James tem seus casos, como Kelly também. Ela uma cantora Contry famosa, mas que agora esta em baixa e também alcolatra. E agora esta em mais uma turnê pelos EUA. Porem algu ns shows sendo cancelados por causa de seus vicio. E para a abertura do show temos Beau que também tem caso com Kelly e que em várias vezes salva a vida dela das overdoses. E temos também Chiles uma nova cantora com futuro promissor e que tem uns lances com Beau. Até parece aqueles rality de troca troca. Como em Nasce uma Estrela e cheia de drama, aqui também ocorre isso e cheio de alto e baixos de Kelly. Uma boa atuação de Gwyneth. Cada vez que assisto os filmes de cantores Estrelas, fico triste com suas historias, sempre envolvidas com vícios, sexo, destruição psicológica, moral e familiar. Sempre com historia tristes e isso é no Mundo todo. Vemos Elvis, Legião, Cazuza, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse,.... Roteiro e enredo raozoavéis. Vale apena assistir? Sim, se não tiver outra opção. Nota: 4 Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Savannah G Tim, and Gwenyth were really the only thing worth this whole movie they actually showed they somewhat cared about this role- still had bad writing and was trying its best to be a version of a star is born. Loved that Gwen was actually singing. and some of the songs were actually okay. Dont need to watch it but either way I still leave loving Gwenyth Paltrow. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Patrick P Such a great movie definitely a must see the music throughout the movie is amazing every song is so good and the story line is very touching a 10/10 in my books and I've watched this movie over 1000 times and it never gets old Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review fer b Wow, I cannot believe the low scores for this movie. I absolutely loved it! Garrett Hedlund made me feel like a totally-in-love-teenager again. The music is superb. Story, acting and flow are decent. It works. I wish movies coming out in the 2020's were as decent as this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review isla s My first thought regarding this film is that I enjoyed the music, the live performances of contemporary country songs, more than I enjoyed the rather bleak plot being played out between such scenes. Compared to other films about country musicians who have had to come back from a bad place, this one wasn't the most substantial but its an alright film. There are definitely some cliches at play and it did seem to me to be targeted as a 'chick flick' type of a film, which may or may not make it seem more of interest to you. I'd have liked to learn more about the main character, Kelly Canter, played by Gwyneth Paltrow - more about her background perhaps? I'm not sure but I didn't feel especially emotional about her, I suppose because I didn't feel a lot of details were given to the viewer about her. While the songs are fun and enjoyable, its quite depressing seeing how Kelly acts around people, when away from the spotlight, so I wouldn't recommend this as a guaranteed feel good, uplifting kind of a film. That aside, its an alright watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
