When I first saw the trailers for this movie I thought that it had the potential to be a magical movie. Some of the critical reviews I have read wouldn't agree with me, but I thought it was pretty magical. The music is an important character in the movie and it comes at you all the time from different directions.

Each main character in the movie has their own personality that is b... read more

I went to see this and I wasn't expecting much, so at least I wasn't disappointed. This movie follows a musical prodigy as he uses his talents to find his long-lost parents, and we watch as all the events unfold toward a big, beautiful, overly-coincidental musical climax. The characters don't have a lot of depth; I heard this described as a urban fairy tale, so I guess it is fitting, but I just ... read more

A movie for old ladies to watch on afternoon... nothing else. The story is too "easy": adequate for non-demanding viewers.

"The overly-sentimental, feel-good fantasy story of a young orphaned boy and 11-year old child musical prodigy named August Rush/Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore), who ran away to NYC to find his long-lost birth parents ("The music - I thought if I could play it, they would know I was alive and fine me"); after miraculously receiving a scholarship to Julliard School of Music, he was invited to conduct the New York Philharmonic at its summer concert series in Central Park with his own Rhapsody in C M"

"If you seen this movie you'll remember the great duelling guitar scene. Best of all you'll remember the guitar slapping song. One of the most enjoyable music routines ever. Music's all around us, all you have to do is listen. Talk about terrific casting for a movie. Could you think of anyone else than Freddie Highmore to play this part."

"This movie had its cute moments, but I thought it was trying too hard to be poignant. The film is about a socially clueless 12 year old kid who can hear music in almost everything and believes his real parents (he is in a boy's home) will come for him one day, that they will hear his music. He takes off to New York and meets up with a good-natured little homeless scamp who takes him home to a condemned building full of other 10-14 year old kids in a scene reminiscent of "Hook", when all the Lost"

"Critics: 37% Audiences: 84% Consensus: Though featuring a talented cast, August Rush cannot overcome the flimsy direction and schmaltzy plot."
