Mmm-hmm, well "Vanished" had potential, and it did start out as really interesting. There was a good amount of appeal to the movie, and it was good at building up suspense and a sense of thrill. But ultimately it all crashed down towards the last fourth of the movie. Wow, what just went wrong here. What was the director and screen writing thinking?
The part leading up to the kidnapping and the part with searching for the missing child, and the pleading through the media was actually quite good. But then the movie took a turn for the worse! I am not going to go into details, as it has to be seen to be believed. I was so annoyed with the turn of events that my attention started to drift off to my phone. The movie went from rather enjoyable to sewage in a matter of minutes.
I will say that the acting in the movie was actually quiet good for a movie of this caliber. I don't recall having seen anyone in the movie prior to this one, so it was a nice fresh touch with unfamiliar faces.
If you enjoy thrillers, then you might find enjoyment in this movie - just as I did in the first three quarters of the entire movie. There are some great moments and aspects to "Vanished". Just be warned, that the movie does take a rather radical turn of events towards the last quarter of the movie.
