Engaging .

She breaks free from all of the painfully cliched teen sick coming of age elements to give a star turn as Stella.

At the end of the day, the film is worth the watch despite the flaws primarily because of Haley Lu Richardson's absolutely charming performance.

Justin does a good job of engaging the audience here.

It's very cliche and formulaic.

As for the parents, they were okay, but I felt that for something as intense as the themes in this movie, some more involvement would be seen.

I really enjoyed it.

She has great chemistry with Cole Sprouse, though the writing felt far more blatantly formulaic from his mouth than it did with Richardson.

Will's last words when they parted were extremely cliche, not touching.

First I read the book and had high expectations for the movieI thought the beginning was slow and near the end was rushed.

This is such a lovely movie i enjoyed it throghly go for it guys 👍👍

This was extremely cliche.

God, I can go to a super market for a boring and tiring shopping tour every day.

Predictable .

Save your money.

Just as sappy and predictable as any one of these "sick teens" movies can get .

Worth the watch .

intense story of love & death .

It does show how terrible CS is and I commend it for that but we all found it boring and teh characters unrelatable.

Bittersweet at times, corny at times, romantic at times, cliche at times.

Despite it being fairly predictable I thought it was a good story with some solid acting except for them choosing to use Jugghead for the costarring part!

Unexpected and Superb Acting.

Five Feet Apart is an emotionally compelling and deeply poignant teen drama that borders on conventional melodramatic levels.

The little details that make it just that little bit more intense.

There is not much to the story as such because it was very predictable.

Your typical sad love story, but definitely worth watching .

Many aspects are sad while being intriguing; I love films like this so much all the conversations are great and the romance is incredible.

I loved almost everything in the movie, the topic discussed is not consumed a lot in cinema, people with a deadly disease and how they live, life between hope and falling apart, The funny scenes were well used to make the movie more exciting.

It took me a while to watch this movie but I was really looking forward to watching it because I read the book and enjoyed it.

Pretty enjoyable and worth a watch.

Too cliche.

Ten out of ten highly recommend it if you have a spare hour and fifty six minutes on your hands as you will laugh and cry a lot like I did.

The movie was not bad, but it was very slow moving, repetitive and you never got the feeling you really knew the characters.

Nothing special about this movie, i was bored to death.

it basically went from a cliche to a heart wrenching story, just the way it was supposed to be.

The film goes through the motions after a while and some of the plot points are predictable.

I wasn't going to see this but then when every 14 year old girl walked out of the theater sobbing I thought I would see it.

Despite some intriguing ideas, it falls to the two lovely leads to maintain chemistry.

I can't deny that I ship Stellar and Will, but it did initially seem a bit cliche, circumferential and rushed.

Stunning .

It was very predictable and I feel like they threw in Poe's death just for the shock value, there was literally no point in it.

Maudlin, cliched, predictable, goofs, ludicrously oblivious to medical procedures, policy and real life.

(even though he typically likes chick-flicks and some romances, hubby was bored with this one) 6.8 starts/10

Worth watching,such a hidden gem !!!

What a waste of time and money that will only appeal to those interested in a story of this type, obliviously ignorning all the plot holes.

stunning performance by Haley Lu .

The plotting is thoroughly predictable and if you seen the trailer you know where the film is going.

Yes, its cliche, predictable and formulaic.

Chirs Nolan once said that films are meant to be felt not watched, this is exactly what I did with this one, absolutely breathtaking.

Falling in love while balancing on the edge of the death sentence is a very emotional subject.

During their last adventure together an unexpected event leds to an expected end result.

A waste of my time.

The story and direction is cliché and predictable.

Let me preface this by saying I hate romances, I find them to be tacky cliche and two dimensional.

That being said, it is a movie that I would recommend to anybody looking for an entertaining love-story that takes your breath away and leaves you in tears.

Every now and then the writing was a little cliché and Poe's death felt kind of rushed to me.

Although this movie was amazing, I felt that the plot was a bit predictable.

There were enjoyable and touching moments though.

Second act was a bit drawn out.

It was just too predictable for me to really get excited about.

I feel compelled to write this review for all of those guys who get dragged along to see some cheezy romance flick by the wife or girlfriend and can barely make it through without trying to duck into the adjacent theater for something action oriented.

All three of us were bored to tears with it.

intriguing premise sappy execution .

Just to waste 2 hours of your life.. The unlogic in spite if is Un-logic is so easy to predict as you should seen similer movies before which was also boring.

Really enjoyed it.

I felt so immersed in the characters, and their stories.

Then SPOILER alert WAMMY the best friend dies I was like hmmmmm this could be the plot twist this dull movie needs to really take the edge off.

Five Feet Apart is a film that has got its heart in the right place but it's hard to ignore that when the film suffers from erratic character development, melodramatic dialogue, slow pacing and a constant assault of various YA cliches.

Incredibly touching and intense!

Sad, depressing, frustrating yet interesting and engaging insight into the lives of several teens who are battling illness.

Five feet apart man.. An emotional and intriguing...

I found it hard to get invested as the events unfolded in a very predictable and inorganic way.

But then the story took such an unrealistic, dramatic turn that left me feeling really empty.

There aren't really any risks taken and you're not going to get anything new, making the story very predictable at times.

Amazing romance movie that brings tears to your eyes, emotional story and the way how they fell in love was perfect, beside the stunning performance by Haley Lu the cutest actress who shows a lot of reactions in the same time, if you see Haley Lu in real, her actual character almost same as her movies character, I think she will be one of the most famous actresses in the future.

The six feet rule began to be unbearable so the couple daringly decides to lower the distance to five (hence the title Five Feet Apart).

And there's this gay best friend factor to make it even more cliche.

A boring teen movie .

DISLIKES:Predictable Cheesy At Times Scientific Stretches The Parent Components.

Okay this was unexpected.

Yes, it is quite predictable.

I found this film to be predictable, poorly written and incredibly cliché.

Really enjoyed it.

It really is sappy and very formulaic.

It's contrived enough so that towards the end...

Slow moving and predicatable .

Too predictable and sappy .

However, the movie was terribly rushed but was drawn out.

There was a scene that was purposefully dragged out for the purpose of making the audience uncomfortable in a completely unnecessary way.

The premise seems intriguing.

Very much cliché as well.

There was a enough heart break, drama, love and friendship to keep the movie entertaining.
