waste of time.

A serious waste of time.

Yes, it took far too long to get to the good stuff.

This is a strange film as it is well acted with high production value and some superb locations but the characters have very few redeeming qualities and it ends up being a super depressing twisted dull story that falters at every act.

It's a movie which presents an interesting intrigue, that of a woman who suddenly is able to see, while everything that follows falls into the unexpected.

It's co-written by Sean Conway and director Forster, and despite teasing some fascinating psychological aspects, we find ourselves constantly waiting for the movie to show us what we already know is about to happen.

Emotionless, pathetic, colourless.. A two hour waste of time.

Pointless beautiful .

When the producers were left without any idea regarding the plot, they would simply introduce a sex scene, hoping to regain some interest, but it's a cheap and pointless trick if you ask me.

Well it's /very/ slow for one.

Very boring movie with no good plot.

When it looks like something really thrilling is to happen...

Those easily-impressionable people I was telling you about will say we didn't get it and we only like Marvel films, but come on, empty expectations are as bad as brainless explosions.

You're forced to see through her blurry sight way too many times that it simply gets tiresome for your own eyes.

It is still worth watching the film yet be prepared for a depressing drawn out movie.

Most reviewers seem to agree that this was a boring and rather pointless film.

It's a beautiful empty shell.

It's very slow, as it should be, taking the time to help us understand the characters and connect with them.

A waste of near two Hrs and a lot of money - with pretty pictures not atoning for a weak script.

Blake Lively is always interesting to me whether in engaging dramas like Age of Adeline or in engaging nonsense such as The Shallows.

The last third of the 110 minutes is actually pretty enjoyable.

A thoroughly enjoyable film.

The filmmakers simply failed to expand on the central premise here, and what we get is a feature length film that is a bore to sit through.

Quite boring and no thrill.

If you could sit through the boredom of Foster's directing, you would find a real movie, and a great story worthy of a better job.

(Although, I agree that a few small parts were pointless and added nothing to the plot.

Furthermore, they are involved multiple times in simply pointless events which don't lead anywhere.

This movie is slow just to let everyone know.

Visually breathtaking.

unbearably predictable.

It's watchable, but too predictable .

Waste of time .

If you are into deep, surreal, bizarre and stunning movies, you are going to LOVE "All I See is You".

His actions towards her getting her vision back was predictable because he didn't like her behavior.

so predictable.

The visuals and colors are nice to look at and they were several sex scenes, that felt as if they were to put for the audiences to forgot that the movie is quite slow and nothing happens, as if the director wanted to distract us.

This slow-moving film was a train wreck in character development.

It's linear, predictable and overall disappointing; even more upsetting if you put the finale into the equation as well, as it does almost nothing that can somehow make up for the mistakes that were previously made.

In some flicks, this is appealing but, this time, along with a slow pace, it fails to keep a movie fans attentions at every moment.

torment, selfishness and cruelty, is what the plot is drawn out of, a somewhat dark an pitiful perspective on life.

but this movie is a waste of time.

There's nothing going on in this movie, no plot, no story , nothing, from start to finish is just boring.

The net product is a confusing and rather irritating mishmash that makes it very hard to follow the paper-thin narrative, and inclined this particular viewer to keep dozing off - aided by the trance-inducing music and sound design!

This movie attempt at suspense and thrills is a 5 out of 10 because some things became too predictable and obvious.

Whilst what follows is definitely psychological, and in part thrilling, this is very much a study of a relationship on the precipice and the extremes we'll go to when cornered or desperate.

Boring from start to finish .

It felt more like a slow paced drama with some occasional scenes of interest.

Terrible waste of time.

The story seems to be left in a very dull moment which stays on and nothing really unfolds.

it just feels kind of pointless at the end.

By then, the makers have disposed subplots going nowhere and concentrated on the main line.

Forster - as the director and one of the writers - has aimed for suspenseful relationship drama, and the two stars (Blake Lively, Jason Clarke) are certainly up to the challenge, both able thespians as they are.

Director Marc Forster wants to say something compelling about the human condition.

The plot itself manages to bring plenty of boredom to make you lose any interest, while at the same time, is not able to provide any emotion or suspense.

Also quite predictable in that we knew once Blake Lively compleyely heals and gauins back her eye sight, her character change was going to occur and as expected she does change for the worse, and her attitude towards her husband (Jason Clarke) become more obvious as she becomes more unlikable.

I truly like Blake Lively but felt this was a waste of time for her.

My Suggestion: See it if you like Blake Lively or Jason Clarke enough to sit through a boring movie starring them.

I tend to prefer films that are less "artsy", but as a former film student and someone who has worked in theatre, film, and TV since the age of 14, I have been exposed to (and enjoyed) a wide and eclectic range of dramatic entertainment - and art - over the years, and I still found ALL I SEE IS YOU to be a boring and pretentious load of twaddle.

watching paint dry is more exciting .

It wears off rather quickly and becomes tedious after the initial novelty.

The slow pacing of the movie is not a problem there: before the story even begins, we are given a few clues about some discrete forces in society that tear couples apart: bragging and lust, obsessions and anxiety.

This is not really like watching paint dry, its actually more tedious than that!

The result is a very long, tedious, cinematographer's holiday (Matthias Koenigswieser) about the world we see and the world we don't see.

how can someone transform a promising plot in a very dull and nonsense?

A big waste of time that just left me frustrated.

The first 30 minutes knits together the confusion and frustration of Gina's everyday life perfectly sometimes taking us behind her eyes to experience the lights and the shapes that Gina can almost see as we follow her to the pool, teaching guitar, and to the doctors where she is told that a transplant is possible.

Lively is clearly the star here, with an intriguing dual role of being one girl before and quite the new one after regaining her sight.

Enjoyable and realistic .

Narratively the story is loosely written with a slow pace (especially in the beginning) that doesn't allow the film to gather much momentum.

It was a waste of time and was pointless.

The slow and plot and mediocre performance from most of the actors creates a awful film.

He gets the messages, walks out on her and jumps in his car, and, absorbed in a very emotionally intense session of self-introspection and judgment while driving, ends up in a fatal accident.

Plain and dull .

stick to Marvel comic movies :) However, if you like being engaged with an intense and realistic story that demands some thinking by the viewer (and beautifully set in Thailand), you won't be disappointed.

A pretentious, self-conscious little film, that bores rather than impresses.

while one suffers through this long drawn out pathetic story.

This movie is so boring.

Its slow and full of stupid dialogue about penis size and sex and very little in the way of an actual story.

I rate it a 4 as a 5 is too high for the painful long arse boring depressing script with even worse ending possible.

I must confess I'm a fan of Blake Lively, but this was a fantastic portrayal of the intense personal journey that a blind person goes through as they regain, and then relose, their sight.

extremely boring and super sexual.
