The first time I watched it, it was very late at night, yet I could not stop. I was drawn into the characters. As the film proceeded, it was so emotionally compelling and I pondered as to the premise of the film. I felt sad that their purpose on this earth was to donate their vital organs and complete, I wondered why they Cathy and Tommy didn't just run away from this torment and begin their own

I felt the movie was very moving, a little slow for people who like alot of action though. Carey Mulligan was excellent, rent it, you won't regret it...

I had to watch it twice - to fully realize the stunning meaning of this film. The characters are compelling and they etched themselve into my heart. Never Le Me Go is a haunting and memorable film that I will never forget.

This movie isn't good at all. yea i like the actors but it was kinda boring. i was falling asleep and the end was kinda bizarre. Why not make it even more depressing and have the girl die at the end too. WOW

I won't go so far as to say this move was inspired by (definitely not a remake of) "The Island", but a similar "clones for parts" theme. Really kind of lame. Rent it, don't buy it.

Never Let Me Go is that rare find, a fragile little four-leaf clover of a movie that's emotionally devastating, yet all too easily trampled by cynics. Full Review

Never Let Me Go is gorgeous. And depressing. It's exquisitely acted. And depressing. It's romantic, profound and superbly crafted, shot with the self-contained radiance of a snow globe. And it's depressing. Full Review

Director Mark Romanek captures the slightly seedy and rundown reality of '70s and '80s British life in astonishing and even tragic detail; this is more like a period piece than a science-fiction movie. Full Review

Epitomizes the kind of somber, aesthetically refined and morally engaged film that commands deep respect without inspiring much affection. Full Review

A film more moving than most but not as devastating as it should be. Full Review
