Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: When Charlie inevitably relapses and trolls Los Angeles's meaner streets for a fix, you feel little sympathy for a character so shallow he seems incapable of introspection.
Rotten: a well-meaning study of addiction that hits too many banal beats to snap us to attention.
Rotten: Honesty and good intentions don't compensate for the mediocrity of the work.
Rotten: Even as enlightenment occurs, Charlie is still mostly a guy you want to punch in the face.
I have known lots of films PROFESSIONALLY, before I mention my review on this film.
+ Educational film.
+ Response to patients with drug addiction is not bad. Some of them are good. People near to drug addicted patients may be able to use them.
+ Cliche progress: Regaining power with love/lover. => Losing self ability after the love/lover's absence. Simply put, when someone was motivated/charged by other, that goes zero after the loss.
+ Dramatic. After friend's death, the person shows a bit of progress. The price is too huge. This type is also cliche.
Personally, the main actor is not very...
