Water For Elephants Review! Robert Pattinson Rocks In 'Water For Elephants' — It's A MUST See!

If you were wondering whether Rob can have a career outside of the sexy blood sucking vampire world — the answer is yes!

Robert Pattinson is spectacular in Water For Elephants! The film based on Sara Gruen‘s popular novel, focuses on the life of Jacob Jankowski, a straight-A student one week from getting his veterinary degree from Cornell University, during the Great depression. His entire life is turned upside down when his parents are tragically killed in a car accident ,leaving him penniless,with no home and unable to take his final exams. Jacob sets off  without knowing where he will go and like many homeless men at the time he hops a train hoping to go West and find work.  Lucky for him, the train he hops, carries the traveling circus-  The Benzini Brothers- and it turns out, they are in dire need of a vet!

Jacob quickly falls for the beautiful star of the show ,Marlena, (Reese Witherspoon), as well as the other beautiful lead, Rosie ,the elephant. The cast is completed by August (Christoph Waltz) who plays Marlena’s charming but sociopathic husband, who is also the ringmaster of the circus troop.

Rob uses his boyish charm to make the audience love him. He smiles and giggles throughout the film as the young and awkward Jacob. While Reese’s character brilliantly dominates him with her stunning beauty and sweet but steely personality. They bond over their love of animals — especially their passion for the mischievous Rosie.

The entire film sparkles with exquisitely sequined costumes and colorfully exaggerated circus sets. And it is definitely a breath of fresh air to see Rob’s intense chemistry with someone other than his onscreen and offscreen love, Kristen Stewart.

The film is a great beginning of a long onscreen career for Rob. And both Reese and Christoph prove once again that they are among the best actors of our time.  I love you Rob and would have stuck by you through anything, but I’m happy I didn’t have to see another Remember Me to prove that!
