2.0 out of 5 stars A case of actually being truly disappointed., February 1, 2014
This review is from: Lovelace [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Amanda Seyfried is an incredible actress. In addition, she's a unique beauty and her body is seduction in motion. I have been so used to seeing her in captivating films that when I heard about "Lovelace" being made I figured the film would be another interesting indulgence .

My thoughts were greatly diminished after viewing , in fact I was in disappointment mode way less than halfway into the film. Seyfried had the right goods for the part, even more so than the real Linda but she just wasn't believable, nor were many of the characters. For a supposedly linear movie it was extremely non cohesive.

When Linda enters the world of porn, there is no real feeling of shock. She also never really questions her lascivious acts early on for someone so brand new. The movie seemed rushed with bits and pieces missing. I'm no raunch fanatic but for a film made in 2012/2013 about the porn industry of the 70s, this was very tame, and every sex scene looked beyond fake. I understand the acters can't really have sex but I've seen more bump and grind in PG13 films..

Linda's interactions with her mother and father never explain her life which is what I was hoping for. There were no overtly religious tones throughout. Also I found Linda's boyfriend to be a cardboard character that I didn't love to hate, I just hated. I really expected a deeper character development and a capturing of the 70s that never fully panned out. This could have been a fascinating take on a strange passing in time. Unfortunately it was a very poor film that was matched only by the poor happenings it attempted to depict.

I even held out hope that as the movie came to a close there would either have been some kind of "aha" moment or a sense of completion. Instead it rang hollow. An overall bad project for Amanda Seyfried and company.
