A boyfriend is contacted three years after the disappearance of his girlfriend by her abductor, who will lead him to the solution of the mystery by making him pass a series of tests leading him down a path of obsession. The suit is nothing original, but Jeff Bridges' performance as the psycho is haunting and there is a good level of tension in some scenes.
A solid remake of George Sluizer's original Dutch film. The thriller spends a great deal of time focusing on the villain in this case and meditating on what it means to be a good person and what it means to do an act of horrific evil. The film is not perfect: I thought Rita and Jeff's relationship could have been developed a little bit more. The very last scene also contains a horrific joke. But those points aside, "The Vanishing" is a creepy and effective thriller. Great performance by Jeff Bridges as well.
The main reason why this movie has such bad reviews is because it differs from the original. Particularly the ending. The whole casts' acting was awesome and this movie in its own rocks. Suspenseful and thrilling.
Well, it didn't have a completely happy ending, which was nice. I don't know how believable an evil Jeff Bridges is, but oh well. Kind of is a bit slow, and Kiefer Sutherland's hair is kind of annoying. But overall, it was watchable.
