Not that terrible but could have done much more with what it had
11 October 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

There is worse out there than 4Closed and it is not quite as terrible as what the first reviewer says, but that is not to say much in 4Closed's favour, because there was some potential there that wasn't explored very well. Malee Matlin and James Denton are decent, there are moments of creepy atmosphere and 4Closed also knows what it wants to be and what it wants to do, and doesn't try to go beyond that. Unfortunately that was also a shortcoming, in doing that everything becomes very simplistic and without that much soul. The actors do make an effort, though Christine DeRosa's acting was rather forced and Jamie Kennedy doesn't really convince as a psychopathic creep(not charismatic enough and in a way too nice, also comedy villain quality sometimes), but are ill-served by the lack of tension and suspense in the atmosphere and script, half-baked characters and a complete lack of surprises. Not to mention a story so painfully obvious and when it is devoid of the above things the whole movie just feels flabby. The look of the movie is unappealing, not quite amateurish but rather drab and hurried-looking. For the type of movie 4Closed it's somewhat appropriate but when there's very little interesting elsewhere, it just doesn't appeal. Audibly there's no better news, it's generic in scoring and the sound has a tendency to be muddied. All in all, could have been much more, a few redeeming qualities here and there, but generally it's unexciting, predictable, underwritten, simplistic and largely underwhelming in atmosphere, and just fails to entertain really. 3/10 Bethany Cox
