Initial Thoughts:
 
I’ve loved The Beatles for a long time, not my whole life but for over 30 years. I’m always interested in any movie which celebrates their music, this one was on the Cineplex app (and I had a code) so I watched it.
 
Main Points:
 
While the movie certainly does celebrate Beatles music, it also gives us a story about what it means to be successful and ultimately what it means to be happy.
 
I thought the Beatles songs were done really well, good acting, a nice story and even a couple of surprises that I enjoyed a lot. I won’t spoil it when a certain person (with distinctive glasses) shows up, I smiled from ear to ear and I really think they captured his spirit well.
 
This movie will remind you just how wonderful The Beatles really were and the huge impact they had one the world. I can see that the story is a little corny and simple but that’s all this movie needs it to be.
 
Final Thoughts:
 
“All you need is love, love is all you need”. The movie reminds you of what matters in life and the best way to be happy. I really enjoyed this movie and give it a solid 8 out 10. I think any Beatles fan has to see this and I know from the fact that my wife liked it (and she is not even slightly a Beatles fan) proves also don’t have to one to like it. Maybe a little mature for young kids, I’d say ages 13+. Obviously a big recommendation from me. See this if too can, you’ll be glad you did.
