This is a very good DVD transfer.

Makes you realize how important it is to enjoy life and love while you can, because you never know when everything will change, maybe forever.

I watch this movie at least two to three times a year and it gets better and better.

One has to give superstar Mel Gibson a lot of credit. Over his prolific career, Gibson has taken many risks in the roles he's chosen, and this romantic fantasy is just one of them. FOREVER YOUNG opens in 1939, where daredevil test pilot Gibson finds himself involved with a scientist who is perfecting a cryogenics chamber. He's also madly in love with the lovely Helen (Isabel Glasser), and wants to marry her. Alas and alack, before he can pop the question, Helen is struck down by a truck and goes into a coma. As the months go by, Gibson clings to hopes she'll recover but as his scientist friend (George Wendt) states, doctors give her little hope. When Mel feels he can't watch Helen die, he volunteers to be the first human volunteer for the cryogenics project, asking Wendt to freeze him for a year so he can avoid the inevitable. Next thing you know, it's 1992, and we meet single mom Jamie Lee Curtis (quite good as always) and her 10 year old son (Elijah Wood, simply charming, showing us what his future would be years later). While playing in an abandoned military warehouse, Wood and his buddy stumble upon the cyrogenics chamber and accidentally release Gibson. How he got caught in this chamber for 53 years forms the core of the story and Gibson desperately searches for some knowledge of Wendt's whereabouts.

The movie is unabashedly romantic but Gibson is so good and the story takes hold of you and you watch with amusement as Gibson discovers the technologies of a new world and his scenes with young Wood are marvelous. A rather contrived ending spoils the overall effect but FOREVER YOUNG is nonetheless a very engaging film.

C'mon! Admit it! You love sappy love stories. Especially with a sci-fi twist. Yes, this is cute and harmless, and a real tear jerker. But you know you are gonna love it even more when you see it done by Mel Gibson. Jamie Lee Curtis and Elija Wood also do a great job. The main thing here is that the characters make the story believeable and enjoyable.

The widescreen version of Forever Young was released on LASER DISC. And it is awesome! I have it in my collection. Someone in their infinite wisdom probably decided it wasn't worth it to put that version on DVD. They were so wrong.

'Forever Young' is an attractive well-produced film focussing on the story of Daniel McCormick (Mel Gibson) a US Air Corps pilot in the 1940s. Grief-stricken by a personal tragedy he volunteers for a cryogenics experiment and is frozen in time until he wakes up alone and forgotten in 1992. This film is everything a conventional drama should be, well paced, moving with an engaging storyline. It is a charmingly positive piece of good old-fashioned filmmaking that will appeal to a huge range of audiences. 'Forever Young's' appeal really lies in its simplicity. There is nothing mentally taxing or thought provoking here, just a relaxing armchair film after a hard day at the office with an unashamedly sentimental ending. It is a refreshingly unpretentious film that does not try to be 'great' or in any way arty but merely seeks to be entertaining- and succeeds admirably in this regard.
Mel Gibson is utterly believable as McCormick with a polished, uncluttered performance that resonates with genuine feeling. What he dishes out is hardly complex, angst-ridden Oscar winning stuff, but then, do we want it to be? Though the film is in essence a vehicle for Gibson the other cast member's performances are just as good. Jamie Lee Curtis and George Wendt are especially excellent amongst the adult cast, with unforced smooth performances. Elijah Wood as Nat Cooper is completely charming and engaging with a screen presence that, in an eleven year old, is remarkable. Apart from Gibson he is the real stand out performance of this film and a joy to watch even at this young age. For fans of 'The Lord of the Rings' this film is worth watching even just to see Elijah 'Frodo' Wood up a tree singing 'You are my Sunshine' to a rather bemused looking little girl!

"Forever Young" is the story of a test pilot who, after seeing the love of his life knocked comatose by a produce truck in 1939, volunteers for a cryogenics experiment that results in his losing more than a half century of his life.His desire to find out what happened to all of his lost years takes him back to the neighborhood where he used to live 53 years earlier, where he encounters the two boys who accidentally thawed him, and along the way, we discover how much he and one of the boys have in common.--Big blue eyes, sandy brown hair, a love of flying, and a taste for redhaired members of the opposite sex around whom neither could get up the courage to express their true feelings. A possible romance with the boy's single mother ensues. But ultimately, Captain Daniel McCormack is led back to his soulmate in one of the sweetest scenes in recent film history. For me, the questions this promted included, "Would Daniel prefer to be called historically challenged or decade impaired?" and "How much back pay would the military give him?" But all in all, this is my favorite sci-fi movie to date, and I'm not that big a fan of the genre. Mel Gibson gives a touching performance, and his love of children shines through from beginning to end (inevitably since he was the father of six at the time and now has seven). Jamie Lee Curtis was good as the tart-tounged nurse who gives Daniel a rude awakening to certain aspects of late 20th century life, and so was Nicholas Surovy as Curtis' befuddled suitor and colleague. Isabel Glasser shines as Daniel's love interest.--A woman we feel he is so lucky to have won back. The whole cast did a fine job.It's one of my favorite Gibson movies, and I would highly recommend this modern version of Rip Van Wynkle to anyone.
