“The Lucky One” is Zac Efron’s debut as a leading man in a mature role.
One would think that Efron would be Nicholas Sparks’ dream for the lead role… but some viewers deem otherwise.
The story goes that Efron’s character Logan finds a picture of a girl whilst on duty in Iraq, in all of five minutes of his return he tracks down the girl (without so much as a name) and from here the romance is supposed to start.
Unfortunately Efron can’t stop squinting and lacks the charisma that he’s character in the novel was sure to have.
So although it has all the makings of the perfect romance, be prepared for a slight let down…
The cinematography however is beautiful, and makes us want to jump on a plane to Louisiana!!
We will admit that it did serve for a good dose of eye candy 😉
We rate it 2/5
