Entertaining movie
14 February 2011 | by MovieSonicSee all my reviews

When I come across an actor who clearly cares about their career (male or female), I make a point of watching films they have appeared in because I know that they will choose good material.

Jensen Ackles (of Supernatural) is such an actor.

I think everyone can say at one point or another that they have watched a film because of a certain actor / actress who stars in the film and I want to be clear that my reason on this occasion is not because I am a groupie.

I have started off with this because of some reviews on the internet that include "the film's not so good but Jensen is easy on the eyes" etc. and I think that these statements are disrespectful to the many people who must have worked extremely hard to make this film (no disrespect to those reviewers, we are all entitled to our opinions). The plot is intriguing. The atmosphere of 'mystery' throughout is similar to the recent film Black Swan (2010) except I found this film more satisfying as entertainment. I am not a film-making expert so in layman's terms; the acting is good (not always perfect but never bad either), the relationships between the characters are believable if not always fully developed and the film had a strong beginning, middle and end. I found the film (and script) to have wit, intelligence and substance.

I feel Dominique Swain deserves special mention as her acting was superb. I like actors who give more than needed and Dominique lifted her character from potentially being clichéd or one-dimensional to having depth and this is why I felt empathy for her - it was easy to connect.

I have given the film 8 out of 10 because I like to rate films based on how entertained I was rather than how many negative aspects a film had compared with positive ones.

Yes, the film has flaws. Some were (possibly) due to neglect (i.e. with the writing / directing etc.) and some are clearly just budgetary and I will not score a film lower for that because you know a film's limits before watching one which has a lower budget.

Incidentally, a high budget was not needed and the film was shot in a professional way so you only really notice during a couple of special effects scenes which did not impact on my enjoyment.

I did watch the film without expecting much and I accept that this can influence a person's enjoyment of a film but really, there is nothing wrong with it.

Ultimately; a good script and an interesting mystery. Very happy I watched it.

8/10
