For those unfortunate enough to be locked in a room with this film, look out for Isabel Lucas' eyewatering recreation of the famous dance scene from Flashdance, for anyone else, take heart in staying away from A Heartbeat Away.

I'm describing it as being like the pilot for a cheesy 90s sitcom that no television network wanted to buy.

It's very clunky and very clichéd.

Matt's Movie Reviews

In its lofty ambition to reach the heights of Baz Luhrman inspired fantasy, A Heartbeat Away ends up becoming the worse type of Australian bred fantastical farce.

According to our hipster hero, you can't get more sonically 2011 than Red Hot Chili Peppers. So in the spirit of such whip-smart with-it-ness, a message to all involved with the making of A Heartbeat Away: give it away, give it away, give it away, NOW!

Not only does [Edwards'] approach fail, it nosedives into terminal velocity, rendering A Heartbeat Away an annoying, close to distressing, viewing experience.

Unspeakably bad...This film will do nobody any good and should not have been released.

It smells like desperation to me.

So determined that audiences will love it that it falls into the trap of feel-good cliches.
