This is a totally spoiler free review because it's best to see this
film without knowing what to expect.
I watched this film with no expectations in mind at all, and i have found it watchable. Yes, it's nowhere near any of the best sci-fi movies, but it's an alright watch.
The dialogue of the movie is kind of lame and that's the thing that bothered me, but when it comes to the pace of the movie it's really good, i can guarantee you will not be bored. As for the plot, it's intriguing and I can't say you haven't seen it before, but i found it OK.
In the end, Rupture is a good watch at home when you have nothing to do and feeling like killing some time. Not great, not bad either, just mediocre.
I don't want to give a spoiler, but let me say that the plot is completely derivative. The "science" is not even bad enough to laugh at. The acting is uniformly shlocky, as if the actors watched the worst horror movies and copied all the moves. Is Noomi Rapace completely dreadful? Honestly, no, but she can't save this dud. Do yourself a favor and pound some nails into your hand, or watch the complete oeuvre of Caspar van Dien, instead of this movie. At least you wouldn't have the pain of completely failed expectations. I would put this movie at about on par with the recent Flytrap, and just slightly better than ISRA88. If you know those films, you will get my meaning.

Kidnapping, check; horror, check; torture, check; suspense, check;
mystery, check; action, sort-a; monsters, check; aliens, check, sci-fi,
check. Anyone notice that there are TOO MANY categories here? As a
result, none are fleshed out sufficiently to actually work. So, let's
polish it all off with a mid-sentence ending, so popular these days. I
only used the fast forward in about every fourth scene because the
scenes changed quickly enough to not turn the whole thing off. I kept
hoping that the ending would make sitting through the shotgun plot
worthwhile. Nope - they just ended it with a little dialog (part two
set-up?). BTW: no sex, no nudity, no language. Hello, late night TV.
I disagree with one other reviewer: Noomi Rapace is good; everyone else is a caricature. Michael Chiklis was a walk-on, collect a check, non-character. In fact, he was so badly overdressed for the part, it looked like they snagged him on the way to a night out with his wife.
I have to give this a ten, I thought this movie was going to be a hacked up job but it turns out it was the opposite to my assumptions. It is an Original movie! The script is flawless. You can tell whoever worked on this worked extremely hard in correcting any errors they have had experienced in the past. The scores of music in this movie are original and worth the watch to hear them. I want to congratulate the Director "Steven Shainburg" for making an Original worth watching. I honestly do not watch these type of movies but this one kept me at the slightest edge of my seat. "Brian Nelson" had a long tedious job while doing the screenplay and I got ya man it is no easy work but I got ya, great job on the screenplay it kept me interested and that is all it mattered. I can tell how the director picked out these producers that were knowledgeable in the medicine field or can we say the art of medicine, some of them may have had experience in producing a hospital sitcom. overall I am expecting a sequel.
Looks like there are either some disgruntled ex-lovers/colleagues leaving reviews, or something else is going on here (from the bad reviews that I have read). If you want a genuinely disturbing film, Definitely watch this. I am a movie lover, and, have also studied film for several years. This has a good cast, and, genuinely left me on the edge of my seat. I can't really say any more without giving a major spoiler alert, but, if you are a fan of suspense, this is a MUST watch. I liked how the plot developed, and, where it really succeeded, was, in giving the audience a sense of being enclosed, trapped, and, isolated. My heart was actually pounding that much, I felt I was therewith the main protagonist. A very good film.

Based on the screening at CIFF.
A single mother (Noomi Rapace) is kidnapped by a mysterious group of individuals who subject her to a series of experiments designed to trigger her fear response. Managing to escape her bonds, she soon discovers that she is neither the first nor the only victim of her kidnappers, and in her quest to escape the compound where she is being held she discovers a plot that may have devastating consequences for the future of the human race.
If you're looking for an action film that will keep you in a state of tension throughout, you've come to the right place. Rapace's character has a vulnerability that makes you root for her as she struggles through incredible odds to escape a seemingly impenetrable prison, interacts with other prisoners, and gradually discovers exactly why she was taken in the first place.
There are no happy endings here, folks. If you give this film a chance, though, you may find some food for thought on the nature of emotional bonds (genetic or learned) and how fragile they can be, especially when tampered with. While the body of the film concentrates on building tension, it's the conclusion that leaves the viewer genuinely disturbed.
The one major criticism that I have? There is no way that Noomi Rapace's Scandinavian accent could ever be mistaken for French Canadian. Next time, filmmakers, just make her character Swedish, please?
The first film I watched with this actress was Prometheus....In it she
was as irritating and annoying as fingernails scratching a chalkboard.
My first impression of her proved right. In Rupture, she is awful as always. She is to a film what an iceberg was to the Titanic. I only wonders who decided that she could act.
Now add Ms Rapace, to a film without a coherent script, a "scifish" meandering story that does not go anywhere and one has the perfect recipe for a cinematographic bomb where the best acting and lines belonged to the spiders used in this celluloid atrocity.
I like bad films, but the kind of film that is so bad that is good. Rupture is only bad, a sickeningly bad porn-torture film.
Do yourself a favor and skip this aberration.
