Dear John Movie Review

'Dear John' is a story about John Tyree a troubled 23 year old who decided to join the army on a whim. While back home on leave he meets Savannah Curtis, a 21 year old college girl. They spend 2 wonderful weeks together and fall deeply in love. John has to go back to his army commitment for 12 months. John and Savannah try desperately to keep their strong love alive while apart through letters. This movie exceeded all of my expectations. I did read the book first, so I knew the general story going into it. The book spans over a time of 5 years, So I knew the movie wouldn't be able to show everything that happens. There were some significant differences between the book and the movie, but I liked the changes, it made the movie unpredictable for me, I liked not knowing everything that was going to happen. This movie is going to gain a very large female audience but I feel the men that do go see this movie will end up enjoying it themselves, it has lots to offer to all audiences, Old, Young, Male and Female. Channing Tatum put on such a strong, passionate and amazing performance, I wasn't expecting that from. There is a particular scene that involves him and his father, that had me crying so hard in the theatre. Channing Tatum proved what his acting skills are capable of, and I can't wait to see him in more films, especially romance films. Amanda Seyfriend was fantastic as well. Her acting talents shined through in this film and so did her Musical talents as well. She sings a song in the film called "Little House" and it was such a beautiful song. I would over all rate this movie 4 out of 5 stars. To answer a common question.."Should I read the book first?" Well with this movie, it doesn't really matter what you do first, I personally think I got a better experience out of the movie because I read the book first, but if you choose to see the movie first, I still hope you will read the book, it has a lot to offer and it is such a great read.
