Delivers well as a hostage thriller no more, no less.
11 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Regardless which book or by whom, it's the directors freedom to make any adaptation of the book and the story to their liking so let's review the movie here and not the book. This one turns out to be a thriller and not so much a psychological drama. Missed chance? Not completely.

The story delivers well as a hostage thriller that touches lightly on the topic of when or not beauty is a blessing or a curse. The psychological games keep the story interesting where the story line is pretty straight forward. Is it worth an Oscar nomination? No, but it's entertaining and has a fabulous performance by Van Reijn who in my opinion is just as beautiful as the part requires. Which brings us to the point of the story, if there was one intended at all, beauty is just an opinion and skin deep.
