In the hands of director and co-writer Shana Feste (Country Strong), Endless Love has become a solidly engaging neo-'50s romantic melodrama.

Randy Cordova
Arizona Republic

If you had to update the film for the Instagram generation, you could do a lot worse than what director Shana Feste (“Country Strong”) has come up with. She has crafted a stylish, evocative journey into overheated-teenager territory. For a good chunk of the time, it works.

Anna Smith

A flowerier adaptation of the Scott Spencer romance than Zeffirelli's '80s version, it's tailor-made for the Nicholas Sparks crowd.

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
The A.V. Club

The film also contains fleeting moments of authenticity. Most of these come courtesy of Robert Patrick, who plays David’s father, and Greenwood. Together, these two veteran actors turn could-be-thankless “good dad/bad dad” roles into credible depictions of wounded masculinity. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t about them.

Christy Lemire

It's awfully tasteful and emotionally detached in its blissed-out depiction of beautiful young people cavorting in the sunlight.

Bruce Ingram
Chicago Sun-Times

Love may or may not be endless, but there’s no limit to what can be contrived in a movie like this.

Kimber Myers
The Playlist

It’s a movie-length cliché about the type of love that explains why drugstores are stocked with cheap, forgettable Valentine’s Day gifts bought by teenagers and the immature at heart.

R. Kurt Osenlund
Slant Magazine

Shana Feste's film seems blissfully unaware that great fights require truly substantial conflicts.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Greenwood and Richardson make a fine, discordant couple and the young leads have a certain chemistry. If only Feste had realized she’d stripped almost all the conflict out of the story.

Mike McCahill
The Guardian

A certain doofy sincerity – all fairy lights and lakeside kisses – and Wilde's nervy, natural responses keep matters semi-watchable. As a romance, though, it's by-the-book.

Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times

Every time things between blue-collar David (Pettyfer) and pretty, privileged Jade (Wilde) get sticky — either kissy/gooey or teary/hurt-y — and the film could go deep, "Endless" morphs into music video territory.

Laremy Legel

That it’s not totally dialed in throughout makes it a victim of the same thing most bad movies fall prey to: having the spark of a great idea rested awkwardly on top of a spinning mess of execution.

Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter

A highly homogenized and sanitized remake that's little better than its 1981 predecessor.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

This Endless Love is a photo shoot, not a movie. It'd play better as a slideshow of jpgs. Even nine-year-old girls ought to cry foul on this movie's endless blandness.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

What is most troubling is how this film can serve to shape perceptions for impressionable kids. Young girls and boys will think that non-stop make-out sessions is all it takes to sustain "endless love."

Peter Keough
Boston Globe

Though Zefferelli’s version was trashy and downright nuts, at least it made you feel the love. This pallid replay just seems endless.

Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune

A movie just begging to go up in the flames of camp. If only somebody had brought a match.

Ronnie Scheib

In “The Greatest” (2009) and “Country Strong” (2010), Feste proved herself quite skilled, if not especially innovative, at limning her characters’ emotional travails. But subtlety, complexity and even the slightest modicum of realism elude her here.

Keith Phipps
The Dissolve

Pettyfer and Wilde look the parts, but any scenes asking them to emote quickly turn disastrous.

Phil Brown
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

A film like Endless Love comes about as close to reality as a Hobbit sequel, only without a single dragon to remind impressionable viewers that they might not want to take it literally.

Stephanie Merry
Washington Post

The movie feels like Nicholas Sparks fan fiction.

Stephen Whitty
Portland Oregonian

This is supposed to be a movie about obsession. Instead it's just cupcake meets beefcake, with a big glass of milk on the side. And that's one Valentine's Day dinner you can easily pass up.

Peter Hartlaub
San Francisco Chronicle

The update is a different kind of failure, too much endless and not enough love.

Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

This stinker is only good for endless laughs.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Endlessly lame.

Mike Scott
New Orleans Times-Picayune

This is supposed to be a movie about obsession. Instead it's just cupcake meets beefcake, with a big glass of milk on the side. And that's one Valentine's Day dinner you can easily pass up.

Manohla Dargis
The New York Times

Directed by Shana Feste (“Country Strong”), this new Endless Love doesn’t have enough going on to make it memorably terrible: Banality is its gravest sin.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day date, this version is probably a better choice than the uncomfortably swoony original would have been. You might be bored, but at least you won’t be embarrassed.

Heather Baysa
Village Voice

This film is a sunny, overlong pastiche of tropes, the kind that suggest love involves nothing more than holding hands and jumping off a dock into a lake, or having slow, teary-eyed sex in front of a fireplace, inexplicably blazing in mid-June.

Louis Black
Austin Chronicle

Not to harp on petty details, but this film is so colossally tone-deaf and off-key in every way that its collection of jarring missteps almost carries it into the arms of perverse comedy.

Trevor Johnston
Time Out London

Pettyfer and Wilde (both Brits) look the part in a soft-drinks-commercial way, but their characters might as well be called Ken and Barbie for all the depth they bring to this wish-fulfilment fantasy of social mobility.

David Edelstein
New York Magazine (Vulture)

It’s actually worse than the 1981 Franco Zeffirelli–Brooke Shields version — which is worse than being waterboarded but at least bears some resemblance to the book and its brilliantly addled ‘70s vibe.
