Think of this: you spend one night with your significant other, and then, in just a blink of an eye, an accident occurs. When you wake up, you realize you are in the hospital and oddly enough, you have forgotten everything that has happened to you from the past five years of your life. What will you do?
“Tragic,” “romantic,” “heartwarming,” and “humorous” are all adjectives to describe the movie The Vow.
Inspired by true events, The Vow follows a young newlywed couple, Leo and Paige, whose lives change after the night of a car accident. After waking up from a coma, Paige suffers from terrible memory loss and forgets the past five years of her life. The story unfolds as Leo tries to help Paige remember who she is and, most importantly, their relationship.
With a personality, Paige is desperately trying to figure out what exactly happened in the most important years of her life that made her become the woman she was before the car accident.
Throughout the many dramatic and emotional scenes, The Vow reminds viewers that in life fate will always give second chances.
The film features my favorite actress, Rachel McAdams, and the gorgeous Channing Tatum, who share an affectionate and natural chemistry throughout the whole movie.
The Vow has the right amounts of romance, drama, and humor that make the movie realistic and can make one shed a tear in the process of watching the film.
Besides the fact that the film had no major climax, I thought The Vow was an overall decent film.
Unlike many others who have watched The Vow, I liked the ending and how it was open-ended, which allows the audience to fill in the blanks of what happens to the characters in the end.
Overall, The Vow was nicely directed. I definitely recommend anyone to see it with friends, family or a significant other.
