The Standoff full movie review - Very charming if you like teen rom-coms
This definitely looks and feels like something you would see on the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon but the quality is slightly better all around, particularly the acting from the two leads.
It's more charming than hilarious but I laughed out loud a couple of times. (Even the eye-roll worthy comedy was usually cute.) It's strength is really as a romantic comedy with some fun, quirky side characters. I can see myself watching it again - in fact, I'm almost certain I will, which is probably the most important thing I could say about it. Romantic comedies is probably my favorite genre but I am particular about them and this was one I really liked.
I gave it a 9/10 for that reason, though that's a high rating in terms of absolute quality. It was a subjective rating, which is what I tend to do. I figure when people come on here to read reviews or look at the average user rating, what they're wondering usually isn't, "Is this a good movie?" but "Will I like it?" So a lot of people will probably watch this and say it's not very good, but it matters that there are some people out there like me who will really love it. That's why I gave it a 9 and decided to write a review, especially since there weren't any written already.
