Interesting, compelling yet thought provoking
11 August 2017 | by JakubBednarSee all my reviews

Firstly I'd have to say if you like the trailer you will get something completely different. I watched this film thinking it was going to be something a little like the Hannibal series with a some cannibalism and quite a bit of blood and gore with a touch of Hannibal's class, I was dead wrong. There are twists in this film where they show you one thing and then confuse you by showing you what really happened a bit later on, this goes on throughout the movie almost right up to the end. By thought provoking I mean even 15 minutes before the ending I was still quite confused. The main drawback of Bluebeard is that it's almost 2 hours long with confusing twists but I stuck to my guns and really wanted to see the ending. I'd give Bluebeard a 6.5 but I lent towards the 7 because it has quality you'd maybe see in a film once a year. I would have given it a solid 8 out of 10 if it was half an hour shorter and wasn't as confusing as they made it. The ending is good I must say, if you have a couple hours of spare time it's worth the watch. I'll probably watch Bluebeard again in a few years, would be interesting what I think of it the second time around after seeing the "true" ending.
