[5.00/10] The Giver (2014)

The Giver (2014)

Quick Review: It tries real hard to be deep and affecting as its source material, but sadly the entire power of its story got lost in translation, as the movie feels emotionally cold and somewhat fabricated, because of its poorly-interpreted script. Not even Noyce's airy direction, the inventive way he plays with the color palette of the cinematography, or the sleek, often impressive production design, are doing wonders for "The Giver". The otherwise great cast struggle to make us care for it, too.
