Storyline

Two criminals, Vic and Danny, kidnap Alice Creed. They fastidiously set-up an apartment building and handcuff Alice to the bed, all in a careful attempt to make sure that she won't escape and they won't get caught. But what do Vic and Danny really want with Alice? And is Alice cunning enough to foil their plans and escape? Written by napierslogs

Very, VERY good. Looking forward to more J Blakeson works in future.
4 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A terrifically enjoyable film from debut writer-director J Blakeson. Apparently working to a tiny budget, he's proved that he has an incredible understanding of what makes a thriller film work.

There are three excellent performances (lucky, as with only three actors this needed to be the case), particularly Gemma Arterton as Alice Creed, who uses her wits and womanly wiles to make a stand against her tormentors, Vic and Danny.

Much has been made of the plot twists - but I still didn't see them coming at all! I thought they were ample to keep you guessing right to the last, and I kept changing my mind as to how I thought things would turn out.

I kept reading "taut, claustrophobic and very well put together" when I was researching this film, and I have to say it delivered on all counts. Excellent.
