“One thing that I do like about this film is that when this movie does show scenes where the characters are in love with each other, itu0026#39;s very well done. At least the performances are. When these two are in a scene together, you can get a good vibe of what theyu0026#39;re feeling. It could be them in love, depressed, scared, or anything that involves emotion. This movie does focus on the emotion of James McAvoy.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s not just the emotion however. You do know very well that McAvoy is still in love, he cares, and the movie does focus on that, but it also focuses on his work job. That may not seem like it is interesting, but it does add a bit more to what McAvoyu0026#39;s character is dealing with, because itu0026#39;s not going completely well with his work space either.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe title of the movie is a good one. It seems like it came from a novel you would find somebody reading at a coffee store, but it is an original title and film. This movie does a decent job on it. Chastain isnu0026#39;t in this movie that much, you are curious where she is when sheu0026#39;s not involved in the story. When she does show up, you question what her motivation is to why weu0026#39;re seeing her, and part of the fun is that we have to see the other film to see her motivations and other stuff.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy few complaints about this film is that the concept of this story does seem interesting, however it isnu0026#39;t a very compelling story. Like I said, part of it is because we donu0026#39;t know what Chastainu0026#39;s character is thinking, but nothing really grabs you unless itu0026#39;s a scene with McAvoy and Chastain together.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhich leads me to a specific scene involved with them. Now Iu0026#39;m not going to spoil it because spoilers are no fun. We really donu0026#39;t know what the real reason is why these two split up and when the movie does reveal why, it gives a bigger impact on how the characters reacted when theyu0026#39;re together, which to me, makes those scenes a tiny bit more enjoyable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso without spoiling anything about the ending, it was very abrupt. Iu0026#39;m pretty sure there is more to it when you see the Her film, but that ending really seemed unnecessary.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe concept of the story is being told is interesting. But when it only focuses on James McAvoyu0026#39;s character, the movie isnu0026#39;t the most entertaining and compelling thing. Yet it when McAvoy and Chastain share the screen, it gets interesting because you can feel their emotions and those scenes with them are well done and compelling, especially one scene that is a big part of the story. The ending may make more sense if both films are scene, but Him is a decent movie that might be even more enjoyable once Her is watched.”
