From the start, I wanted to really like “The Age of Adaline.” A woman who won’t age because of a lightning strike following a car accident … well, I won’t go all spoiler on you, but you can read Film Review blog at the Syracuse New Times site by clicking the link below.
I even enjoyed the acting of Blake Lively, Harrison Ford, Michiel Huisman, Kathy Baker and Ellen Burstyn.
Yet I found the pace more than a tad slow. Maybe that gave me too much time to think, because I could figure out every move that came next, too. I wanted to shake the characters and say, get a move on! I understand that not all movies are action-adventure, shoot-’em-ups. I accept a good talkie. Educate me and entertain me.
And don’t let me guess right every time, please.
