SPOILER ALERT. This movie is OK to watch if you are OK with fast paced action scenes, corny dialog, car chases, etc. What saved it was the realistic ending. The lovebirds do NOT drive off into the sunset together.

Not quite a musical, not quite anything in particular... Call it an action flick where the bad guys are mostly comic-book cliches and sometimes speak in rhyme. Characters sometimes sing, sometimes dance, sometimes try to do both at once. Some scenes teeter aimlessly on the brink of surreal. The soundtrack is dull and forgettable. Still, Ansel Elgort does a good job of playing the film's single interesting character, and the driving sequences are actually pretty good -- the only possible reasons to keep watching.

I spent the entire movie incredibly stressed out. I loved it.

I watched five minutes & decided I'd probably be wasting my time. Fast forwarded through most of the rest, & wondered what inspired me to check it out in the first place. I'm a 67 year-old woman who is bored by most movies ... even Academy Award winners. Somebody younger or easier-to-please might like it.

Good all-around action movie. It has a lot of question marks in regard to the characters' backgrounds that would have been fun to explore but other than that it was fun.

The two opening scenes are superb (the first car chase and intro to the main character). The music and sound editing are also on point. However, the characters felt two dimensional and so cliched. And the plot? It was the same recycled action: a person comes back from their death five times, lots of nonsensical violence, a boring love story, etc. etc.

The musical soundtrack of this film is very good, the plot not so much.

It may seem tough now, but once they are gone, you'll miss having someone to care for.

IMDb has many choice quotes already but not these two yet as of today:
Your name's baby? B-a-b-y, baby?
-Yeah.
Well, then, you have us all beat. Every damn song is about you. We could drive back and forth across the states forever and never run out of "baby" songs. We might run out of gas, though.
===
It's Debbie. Debora.
-Oh, like the song. The Beck one? Yeah.
Well, except I'm d-e-b-o-r-a, and I think that's just d-e-b-r-a. I don't know that one.
-Oh, it goes, um... Jenny? The song's about him wanting to get with Jenny
and her sister, too, whose name is Debra.
So it's not even really about me. It's about the sister. My sister's name is Mary.
She has got all the songs. "Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?" "Proud Mary keep on burnin'." "The wind cries Mary." She's got me beat. Again. She's got endless songs. I got one.
-No, you got two.
What's the other one?
-Debora, the song I'm talking about.
Who by?
-Trex.
