      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      At nine films and counting, the line between Nicholas Sparks film fans and detractors is clear, and The Best of Me will change few minds on either side of the divide.

      Evan Williams The Australian The Best of Me turns into a half-baked dramatic thriller, with violent confrontations, gunfights, plenty of nasty characters and one big scary action scene. Rated: 2/5 Oct 31, 2014 Full Review Philippa Hawker The Age (Australia) There's something heavy-handed, even for Sparks, in the telling of the couple's story, particularly when it comes to Dawson's family: they are leering, brutal embodiments of evil who function as handy plot devices. Rated: 2/5 Oct 29, 2014 Full Review Scott Tobias The Dissolve The Best Of Me, like all Sparks' work, would rather kill his characters and leave a beautiful corpse than have them continue a real, scarred relationship. Rated: 2/5 Oct 22, 2014 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) Sparks' devoted following knows what it wants, and The Best of Me does not relent until it has delivered every last longing look, lovelorn lunge and lachrymose loss of luck. Rated: 2/5 Jun 26, 2020 Full Review Andrew Galdi Movie Bitches I actually kind of enjoyed it. May 27, 2020 Full Review Avaryl Halley Movie Bitches It's achieving exactly what it set out to accomplish... but also it's very bad. Rated: 6.5/10 Mar 26, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Cheesy but hits the feels if you let it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review Carlos T Filme: O Melhor de Mim Elenco: @james_marsden @michellemonaghan @lianaliberato @lukebracey Modelo: #romance #drama Duração: 2h Ano: 2014 Minha opinião: Com um bom elenco Mardesn, Monaghan, Liana, Bracey, McRaney. Conta a estoria de Dawson o menino problema e pobre e a Collier uma princesa de família abastada. E temos Tuck como um pai adotivo de Dawson depois que ele tentou roubar-lhe. Se tornam grandes amigos, onde ele dá conselhos ao jovem que começa a corrigir sua atitudes. Collier vai com sua família passar as férias e é onde a vida deles se cruzam com Dawason e começam um lindo romance, um romance proibido pela diferença social. Mas mesmo assim o amor vence. Mas nada é um mar de flores, tanto o pai de Amanda não aceita o romance. O gangster Tommy vem atazanar sua vida e ataca seu amigo Gerald que ele para por um fim nisso acaba com o assassinato de seu amigo. Dawson é condenado e vai a prisão e neste momento pede para Amanda seguir sua vida sem ele. E assim se passam 20 anos. Quando ela vem para o enterro e reencontra Dawson e com isso antigos sentimentos ressurgem. E assim tem que colocar os pontos nos ÌS. E assim o amor se reacende. Mas este filme acho que utilizou técnicas dos filmes da asia (japonês, coreano, chinês,....) Pois o final acaba com a morte Dawson que vai para por um fim na gang que sempre ferrou com sua vida. Mas ele é morto e Amanda chora e encontra uma carta de Dawson. Roteiro e enredo fazer um filme romance de passado e presente e colocar nisto uma gang de malfeitores. Uma química conhecida nos filmes da ásia, para Hollywood que semre termina com final feliz é raro. Vale apena assistir? Sim Nota: 7 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Kaleb S Great movie all the way through till the end don't watch Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Missy M I mean it's a Nicolas Sparks movie. Very predictable, but I love chick flick movies. The chemistry between the main actors was great. If you want an easy movie to watch and ready for a good ugly cry then this is it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Mary L The end of the movie is the worst. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/25/23 Full Review Joel H The Best of Me is not the best of Nicholas Sparks. This movie starts out like most other romantic dramas and spends most of the first half on the road to predictability. However, then it takes a sharp left into the melodramatic and the eye-rolling ridiculous. Also, a note to screenwriters, if you want your characters to remain likeable, you might want to stay away from adultery, even if their marriage isn't that great. It makes them less sympathetic. I would have been okay with The Best of Me if it has stayed in the land of cliches, but the strange detour at the end really sours the whole journey.
