Sadly, there's a decent story in there somewhere, but it's buried in exploitation.

The clashes of mind and motivation are stressful enough that the only space we occupy for around 90 minutes doesn't seem confining--and that is an achievement worth seeing.

Audience Reviews for The Betrayed


Your typical thriller. One of those see it or not movies, it won't change your life either way.

Jamie (Melissa George) is an average housewife who finds herself kidnapped by a mysterious masked man Alek (Oded Fehr) and imprisoned in a warehouse. Jamie is roughed up and her captor tells her that her husband is not who she thinks he is, but an assassin who is on the run from a crime syndicate after having stolen mob money totaling about 40 million dollars. The kidnappers have also taken her six year old son Michael (Connor Christopher Levins), who is diabetic and needs constant attention. Jamie soon agrees to work with the kidnappers to uncover her husband's secrets in order to save her son. The inclusion of a few genuinely exciting sequences as Jamie races against time to successfully complete a money transfer cements the movie's place as a slow-going yet satisfying endeavor (although magnetic cassette tapes seem really low-tech for international espionage, especially considering Jamie's brilliant work with the computer.)

This is what I'd call a big W.O.T. - a waste o' time. At this stage in her career, Melissa George is an accomplished actress who is much better than starring in a one-room play with minimal suspense that tries to Reservoir Dog the ending. Writer/director Amanda Gusack spends time filming a few artistic shots of urban decay in a warehouse presumably to enter in a state fair competition when she should have been redrafting her script a half-dozen more times.
