“ It's a boring, cheesy movie.
“ Boring .
“Co-written & directed by Bradley Cooper, his first stint behind the screen is better than his entire career in front of it, for his direction exhibits an apt understanding of the mechanics behind translating a tale from script to screen, plus the sincerity & maturity in his work here makes his debut an alluring, refreshing & emotionally engrossing sit.

“ In conclusion I have to say it's just a big crap of a movie, don't waste your time watching.
“While I did like the music and there is a sad moment, it doesn't merit the praise it is getting because overall the movie really is dragged out about really nothing.
“ Confusing .
“ While it is certainly interesting to see Ally and Jackson going in different trajectories with their lives, the direction of the plot is quite predictable and underwhelming.

“ Story is predictable.. Its copied from a bollywood movie named Aashiqui 2.
“ Just died of boredom, died.
“ "A Star Is Born" is quite an entertaining ride.
“ I thought they could have added a bit more to it in terms of substance and plot development but nonetheless an enjoyable flick with some tremendous acting but unexpected (Gaga) actors.
“ There's such confusing flashbacks from them and now, and there is really no climax nor does the second half really even have a story line.
“Although this is the fourth remake of the 1937 original, first-time director Bradley Cooper and his leading lady Gaga both make stunning debuts, which helps the dated material feel relevant.
“ Some scenes being extremely hard to follow and simply not necessary for the plot.
“ I'll say: it was really boring.
“An entertaining ride, featuring two terrific characters that you will definitely find yourself forgetting are played by the dude from the Hangover and the woman who sung Poker Face, A Star is Born is bursting with heart and soul.
“ Just seemed a little slow and too underdeveloped to really care.
“ However, there were some dull parts that I feel should've been removed.
“ First hour maybe was intertaining the rest was just too long and boring
“Overall, a truly enjoyable film.
“ It's good, but a bit pretentious and unrealistic .
“ There was a star though, Lady Gaga put in a stellar performance, amazing, but the rest of it was dull.
“ Just a waste of time.
“ The very problem is the extremely boring plot.
“ Worth watching for the music - and Gaga!
“ Lady Gaga's vocal talents were wasted on ho-hum songs (with the exception of her rendition of La Vie en Rose - though I could have done without her sliding on her back across the bar...
“ You almost forget about the songs however in the many concert scenes; Matthew Libatique's cinematography is judicious, an engrossing shoot, from the bright neons of Ally's tour right through to Jackson's rock concerts which we see in the same drunken haze of their star.
“ The movie itself wasn't amazing, it was a bit ordinary and predictable, but Lady Gaga was charming and natural in her role it was worth the watch just because of her great acting.
“ The chemistry between Gaga and Cooper was riveting.
“ The movie was beyond boring and pretty much predictable.
“ This movie is very very boring so please consider watching something else, or if you are stuck in cinema this might be very very long stay.
“ dragged out story line8.1
“ Now..it felt boring?
“ Waste of time.
“I think Bradley Cooper is a very talented actor, (I've enjoyed him in many other films), I also think Lady Gaga has a beautiful voice; however, I barely got through this film, if it wasn't for the the cost of the ticket and being with my sister, I would've walked out (which I have never done).
“ Big fans of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper we are but this was slow, uneventful predictable and not even with good costume design and choreography.
“ Incredibly boring .
“ Pathetic trite boring.
“ This movie was incredible movie for me and beautiful performance by GaGa and Bradley from a perfect couple, very exciting and well produced.
“ Because of the director's presentation, it's sort of boring.
“ Each and every frame of the film is just fascinating to look at.
“ Boring .
“ Very very corny and tedious .
“ The script very quickly and superficially jumps to Ally's success, and although we see Jack struggling with addiction and childhood demons, the protagonists' motives are shown very superficially and unconvincingly, real drama/conflict is nowhere to be found, there is a boring story about family drama, emerging from poor dialogues.
“ Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga give stunning performances in their acting and musical abilities in this movie (I hear this one has Oscar buzz) and they had me into every moment of this story.
“ The acting in this film however, was phenomenal, though sometimes Cooper's character mumbled his lines which made him very hard to follow especially when his character was so dialogue heavy, the music is also very well done.
“ The only reason this isn't a 10/10 is because the middle is a little slow moving.
“ This movie is a waste of time.
“ The male lead Jack is a cliche of a Rockstar: Rough voice, alcohol and drug abuse problems, doesn't care about boundaries of socially acceptable behaviour.
“ The pacing of the film was uneven with too many slow stretches.
“ Jack is a pathetic addict, the story arc is boring, Shallow is the only decent song.
“ Bradley Cooper's voice (speaking), is the only thing that shines in this mundane, self righteous, farce of a movie.
“ The story is a bit cliche and predictable, and Cooper was definitely coming off a bit "rapey" at the beginning.
“ With an unexpected voice that growls like a weary instrument---tainted by alcohol, drugs, and inner demons----he embodies the scarred soul too weak to firmly grasp the lifeline that Ally extends.
“ Incredibly overrated, amazing songs and voices, but what little story there is could be told in less than 90 minutes, and then perhaps it wouldn't seem so long, dull and boring.
“ Not only I had poker face through the whole movie, I was also bored to hell.
“ Borefest .
