Contains a plot full of twists that can be seen coming from some distance.

Not Forgotten is weighted down by obvious creative choices that mar what might have played out like a telenovela episode of Twin Peaks.

From the start, it's clear there's a riddle to solve...I'm just not sure you'll care about the solution.

A movie that's more convoluted than satisfying.

Not Forgotten overcooks just about every ingredient in its narrative chile con queso.

Audience Reviews for Not Forgotten


In "Not Forgotten," Amaya(Paz Vega) and Jack Bishop(Simon Baker), a banker, are parents of Toby(Chloe Moretz), from Jack's first marriage. As much as she dislikes playing soccer in the border town of Del Rio, Texas, she does so to please her father. One day during practice, Toby disappears and the only clue that Casper(Michael DeLorenzo), Amaya's cousin and acting sheriff, can find is a sneaker on the river bank.

"Not Forgotten" is a dull movie that depicts the Texas side of the border as idyllic while Mexico is nightmarish, punctuated by nonsensical flashes. And it would probably be offensive if it was interesting in any way which is strange considering all of the occult and bare flesh on display. And then there is also numerology which is brought up when Yogi Berra is mentioned followed by a flash of the number 8 but then we already knew the Yankees are evil.
