Riveting
5 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film has to go into my all time top ten which is mighty praise indeed. When you consider there are simply two actors and one actress it is astonishing how this film unveils and has you riveted from the opening sequence to it's conclusion. The characters are believable and I am surprised it hasn't received higher praise. the problem is it probably never got the hype other films less well made receive. Which to an extent is a good thing, because the less you know about the film, the more surprised you will be by it. Great twists and turns and great acting - The basic premise is two guys who met in prison, organise a kidnap of a rich girl and then they carry out the kidnap with alarming precision and professionalism, that the opening 9 minutes has you transfixed. What happens next is pure acting that can make a film great or a film mediocre, in this case GREAT
