The Last Summer Reviews
Weaknesses: They sell this movie as being about a group of friends. You would never guess that from watching it. Most of the characters never meet or connect at all. It makes it so the movie feels completely disjointed. It comes across more like a series of short stories rather than one cohesive film. There are some serious pacing issues here. The movie felt long when I paused it, only to find out that there was another hour and ten minutes left. I again had the problem when I thought I was up to the final 15 minutes, only to find there was another 38 minutes remaining. It feels closer to three hours than less than two. The writing is another big issue. There are so many questionable character decisions and even that is outweighed by a barrage of bad dialogue.
Overall: The cast tries hard. That's about all I can say here. They are totally let down by bad writing, horrid pacing, and a disjointed plot.
