News & Interviews for Sacrifice
Critic Reviews for Sacrifice
That the film looks good matters little when director Peter A. Dowling's script, based on the novel by Sharon Bolton, is filled with so many thinly drawn characters, blunt warning signs and telegraphed plot points.
This movie should be taught in film school-just as Hitchcock movies can teach filmmaking, so can their failed imitators provide us with elementary examples of when technique goes horribly wrong.
Dowling's direction, while competent, also trots out every cliché that a 90-minute movie can contain.
Sacrifice, while far from a waste of time, just isn't interesting enough to bother with, the only mystery being why anyone thought it was strong enough to garner a theatrical release in the first place.
A rare female role as smart and fearless for an actress, in this feminist investigative thriller. Not to mention buried metaphorical truths in folklore about the plight of women, in this case historical male envy and ensuing domination over female bodies.
