Trivia

The film was scheduled for a late 2015 release, but the film's U.S. distributor, Relativity Media, encountered financial trouble, and put off the release. Even after the company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the film has yet to be released in the U.S. NOTE: The film was released Friday 12/16/2016. However, the studios who bought the U.S. rights (from Relativity Media), Grindstone Entertainment and Lionsgate Films, only had a "Limited Release" on that day in the U.S. Exactly six days layer, it was released via streaming on the Internet. It has been released on DVD and Blu-ray from Lionsgate. See more »

Decent Supernatural Thriller that benefits greatly from Anthony Hopkins's presence
12 January 2016 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

The premise where Psychics are helping the police to find killers are a very common thing in movies and TV series and maybe in real life. They won't tell you who the killer is. Just bits and pieces of information, sometimes misleading or misinterpreting.

The same goes for "Solace" a rather naive supernatural thriller which gains substance and becomes interesting because of the presence of veteran multi-awarded actor Anthony Hopkins. Colin Farrell is also in this but maybe he is miscast.

The direction and editing might bother some people but I personally found it OK. Lots of digital Effects, slow motions, quick distorted editing, are always a way to present visions or memories, and this movie has plenty.

One of the problems of "Solace" is that it has a strong statement about a rather delicate matter which I won't reveal because ultimately is the motive of the villain. It's like a moral that forces you to accept it, without expressing the opposite side which is equally strong.

Overall: You won't waste your time with this one. Is a decent Supernatural Thriller and Anthony Hopkins is effortlessly great. In my opinion though skip the obvious moral, or give it some more thought.
