Not a film to be obsessed with...
3 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Obsession or A Trusted Man is not completely irredeemable. It is not too bad to look at, and Charisma Carptenter, Gemma Martini and Nicholas Lea's performances are decent. But it is a largely bad and forgettable movie. While the actors do what they can, they don't have much to work with. Their characters are underdeveloped clichés and I found myself more annoyed with rather than able to identify with them. The dialogue flows awkwardly from one line to the next, and some of those lines are either cheesy and ones that we've heard to exhaustion. The pacing is lifeless and meandering, and unfortunately it never recovers, and while the direction does nothing to hurt how the film looks there is nothing that holds any kind of distinction or even life here. But what fared worst for Obsession was the story. It is one of those stories that you have seen so many times before, and done in such a draggy and non-suspenseful fashion, that you know exactly what's going to happen to each other and how the movie was going to end. Nothing makes sense either, there's far too many senseless parts here to really pick out the biggest offender in this regard, but Sebastian not calling the cops on the way to the warehouse, the cop knowing about the warehouse without having been there and Sonia not finding it peculiar how he came out in the middle of nowhere are certainly at the top of the list.

All in all, forgettable, predictable and senseless movie compensated by some decent acting and that it didn't look cheap. 3/10 Bethany Cox
