SPOILER ALERT: This film features the 9/11 tragedy in a very heart-wrenching way in the end. I find it odd that most reviewers see this as grounds for the production of a bad film. 9/11 happened, and yes, it was horrible, but that doesn't mean that the subject is not untouchable. If we can make films like Stephen King's 'Apt Pupil' about the holocaust and Nazis, why is 9/11 being featured in a film offensive? I thought that 'Remember Me' handled the subject quite well and accurately all things considered. There were no 9/11 jokes, no stupid conspiracy theory subplots and nothing silly that would deem it inappropriate. If you're disturbed by the subject of 9/11, simply don't watch the film. Personally, I think that as sad as 9/11 was, we still need to remember and focus less on why it happened, and more on the people affected by it. I know that Robert Patterson has a bad rep from his days as teenage vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen in the over-dramatic 'Twilight' franchise, but he really redeems himself in this role. The film paints an often disturbing depiction of a 1990's New York, but at its heart this film is really about the meaning of love and why it's important to live life to the fullest. Everything about it was very well-done, from the soundtrack score to the cinematography, and while it isn't a perfect film, it is definitely a great one, especially in this day and age of lousy remakes and that superhero crap.
