The Disappearance of Alice Creed Reviews

Mark Feeney
Boston Globe
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The Disappearance of Alice Creed begins with a van being stolen and ends with a different stolen vehicle being driven away. In between comes a tight, efficient thriller with just three actors and at least two whopper switcheroos.

It's refreshing to see someone putting the needs of the part over her image, and this is far from a halfhearted performance. It's gritty and gutsy.

And unlike many filmmakers who make movies to take pictures, Blakeson is interested in his players. His three principals deliver convincingly messy, ambiguous performances.

Like all top-notch best thrillers, The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a suspense-filled caper flick with enough twists and turns to leave the audience gasping and guessing until its final moments.

It wants to be a movie about the intersection between criminality and the class system but, for that, it could have used a bit more class.

A skilled cast is Blakeson's greatest asset in his attempt to elevate his material above its pulpy limitations. All three are better actors than this sort of movie might call for.

A compact British drama that does more with three people and a few modest settings than most movies do with computerized bloat and a cast of hundreds.

J Blakeson keeps the suspense level high for the first hour or so, but he then indulges in a few plot twists that strain credibility.

All the considerable effort that went into making this film cannot finally offset its aura of pointless morbidity.

Blakeson finds ways to make good use of his assets: three talented actors, a few evocative locations, and a script that springs like a mousetrap.

This taut crime drama is thrillingly old-fashioned in the best sense.

Crisp handling, some clever twists and a welcome streak of dry humor hold attention throughout this indie Brit thriller.

The superior acting from Arterton, Marsan and Compston, combined with Blakeson's resourceful and focused direction, force through a sometimes awkward plot and rescue the film from a middle section that looks to be heading for a brick wall.
