Despite an interesting premise and a promising first act, All I See Is You ultimately fails to deliver much beyond a gradual descent into disinterest and watch-checking.
You might be laughing at the movie by the time you reach its go-for-broke final shot, but the look on Lively's face is enough to fulfill the idea that loving someone is not the same as needing someone.
All I See Is You seems extra-uniquely bad somehow.
Somewhere in this interestingly shot mystery there's an exploration of identity, masculinity and marital discord, but those themes are obscured by the sublime, strange Blake Liveliness of it all.
for all of Forster's experimentation, and his willingness to prod at the strange, jagged edges of this relationship, he ultimately rejects darkness.
Marc Forster's superficially trippy Thailand-set movie never plays like something that had to be made about the human condition. Think instead a short faux-experimental film unnecessarily stretched to the yawning point.
Despite a modicum of visual style and competent performances, it is unable to keep us guessing - or, more important, to make us care - long enough to work up true suspense.
Forster does flawed but fascinating work in this tense, twisty, sexual and psychological puzzle.
...has all the visual style and tension of a thriller but none of the violent payouts...far more arresting and captivating a romance because Forster infuses it with suspenseful urgency.
