Hide and seek? How about Secret Window with a daughter?
31 January 2005 | by juke430See all my reviews

Did anybody ever see Secret Window? This movie seems a lot like that except for the fact that they threw a little girl into the picture to lead us into thinking this was a different film. Shame on people these days.Maybe we are running out of creative ideas to spend millions of dollars on.All of the actors worked everything out just fine. They earn their pay days as far as I am concerned. I am a bit disturbed with some of the script. It could have covered the appropriate details of why things were happening the way they did.The circumstances that were laid out there in the last fifteen minutes of the movie do NOT convince me of someone suffering from a traumatic incident would flesh out and do more then what they had first intended. A specific character figures out the problem but suffers from a purely psychotic nature...versus the initial acting out in trauma. The director misleads us a bit...Not in the nature where we are left to wonder, whats next? Or who is it? But,pushes the possibility that there is a unique force present. He created it...and it doesn't exist. The very end of this was awful.I guess it insinuates that if we all have been dealt a deal of trauma that we will all become someone else. Shue was absolutely beautiful by the way. It is still worth taking a peek at. It has a slow build.Then it is good for a short period of time. It drops and then maintains a moderate pace up until the resolution.I mean no disrespect. Thanks.
