Movie Review: The Lovely Bones

The most recent movie that I've a chance to see is The Lovely Bones. Well, you know the movie trailer really gets to me. I thought there was more to the movie than what I've seen. I was disappointed to say the least.

My heart ached for Susy Salmon, who was murdered at the age of 14, and was caught in the afterlife. Her murderer was never found. Actually, he was discovered by Susy's little sister, but he got away, and was never prosecuted for killing many other girls either!

I mean, it was not a thousand years ago or anything. The time period in this movie should give the detectives or officials enough tools or to find the killer. The movie showed the deterioration in Susy's parents' relationship, and how Susy tried to fit in her new world.

She couldn't go forward, and she couldn't go backward either! However, she realized that she should let her father go for fear that he would be hurt by trying to find her killer. Despite this little hint on the father's obsession, nothing came out of it either.

At the end, Susy got to kiss her first love, her family moved on, the killer was about to make another kill when he got struck by an icicle.

I would have love to see the killer caught and prosecuted or something to compensate for the time the father spent in finding his daughter's killer. He got off too easily! As for Susy, she got the kiss and happily moved on to another life.

Have anyone seen this movie? If you did, let me know your view!

  1. I have not seen it. The last movie I watched was The Bucket List on DVD and that has been out for quite a while.

  2. I've only seen the trailers so far and the storyline sounds interesting. I will probably rent it sometime.

  3. I think I would really like to see the movie. It's not on video yet is it?

  4. I am so bad about finding the time to watch a movie in it's entirety.
