A decent watch for late night viewing
7 September 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

6 out of 10 rating

Assuming you don't have any pre-recorded TV series queued up for your late night viewing than the film Transgression is not a bad alternative to entertain you for 94 minutes. The story evolves around a slowly aging business man named Matthew played well by Michael Ironside. Matthew is not adverse from jumping in to some shady business deals with his lawyer to make his fortune and maintain his high end lifestyle to help satisfy his much younger and attractive second wife Elena played by Maria Grazia Cucinotta.

Early in the film after Matthew and Elena fall asleep they are abruptly awakened by four (4) hooded thieves who immediately take over the house with the intention of getting Matthew to direct them to his hidden safe and open it for them. The two alphas who are vying to run the crime spree are Carlos (played by Carlos Bardem) and Ivaylo (played by Fabio Fulco). Now it is a game of who has the stronger will and smarter wits this evening before their adult son returns home from an evening out. Will Matthew and Elena be able to hold off the masked thieves, or will the thieves use physical torture and verbal threats to convince Matthew and Elena to open up their safe to unveil their treasure trove?

Of course this type of suspense is nothing new to the crime genre in which a family is held captive by a bunch of thieves who squabble amongst themselves as to who is in charge and when should they take off before getting caught. The interesting bit that I liked was the mixed emotions that Elena had for her husband Matthew as the evening wore on and the pressure from the thieves increased. Was Matthew more concerned about the contents of his safe or the safety of his wife? You will have to judge for yourself after watching the film.

I give the film a decent 6 out of 10 rating more for the above average acting than for the common plot.
