What Makes Remember Me a Great Movie to Watch?
Remember Me is a dramatic story. The reason why it is a great movie is because Robert Pattinson's performance is inspiring to watch. Unlike his performance in the Twilight Saga movies, he is much more emotional and moving in Remember Me.

Both of their performances made the storyline effective and it gave the film more of a statement of everyday lives of people in New York.
Allen Coulter directed Remember Me with passion. Will Fetters wrote the screenplay and gave the characters meaning and a purpose in the film making it all the more brilliant to watch.

It was meant to be performed with passion, which gave a statement to people who have lost loved ones in tragic ways.
So, it will be one of those films that may bring tears that some will either love or hate, but it is still a great movie to watch today.
