Movie Review: The Place Beyond the Pines

I tried watching this four times, and I fell asleep during the first 30 minutes every time. So I finally finished the movie, and let me just say I watched two different Ryan Gosling films and I didn’t like him in this film as much as I did in The Big Short. The story had a good premise, but it was way too long. I’m not even sure what could have cut, but there was no reason for that movie to be 2.5 hours. It’s worth watching if you can get through it in one sitting.

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendez do a great job of acting with each other. It must be hard to play certain roles together when you are married to someone who works in Hollywood. While I was watching this, I felt like I was watching one of Brad Cooper’s earlier movies, but this came out in 2013. I know he has done several films before this. It makes a lot of sense why they would cast him for American Sniper. I wouldn’t say Brad Cooper is my favorite, but I can’t deny that he’s a good actor. I’ve seen him play several different roles, and I think he has finally proven himself.

Ryan Gosling, on the other hand, I can name two other movies that he’s in that would be better than watching this. That’s not to say this is a bad film; it’s just not Ryan Gosling’s best work. If I had never seen those other movies, I would think he’s a terrible actor.

I’m not exactly what the title means in regards to the story anyway. Maybe they talked about it in the movie, but I don’t recall them explaining it, and it’s not exactly self-explanatory.

My Score: 7/10
