Take the world’s most popular undead actor and the worst member of the cast of Lost, throw in Pierce Brosnan’s impression of a Wall Street banker imitating Vito Corleone and what do you get? Very little, it seems, as this lightweight romantic drama depicting the tangled lives of two New York students goes to show.
At times, you’ll ask whether the whole enterprise is nought but a flimsy excuse for Brosnan and Pattinson to settle a bet on which of the two can commit the worst atrocity against the Brooklyn accent; persevere however, and you’ll realise the real wager is the director's, on the chances of him pulling off a September 11-based ending without appearing cheap. He loses.
Remember Me is released on DVD on 26 July
