  • The flick rises above the usual pack of copycats to deliver a world mostly of its own

  • As lazy, obvious, and tiresome as retreads get. Also witless.

    September 5, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Some of the plotting feels trite, erratic, but overall I enjoyed this genre entry, as much for Pollak's fussbudget sheriff as the memorably haunting denouement.

  • But the last third is a disaster, everything that happens both asinine and illogical, and by the time it was over I could have cared less about any of the characters, their plight or if the killer was going to be stopped one smidgen of a single bit.

    April 29, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • after several torturous Saw-like moral dilemmas and lots of delving into characters' troubled histories, the film fails to deliver a satisfying ending.

    Like Cherry Falls and Se7en had a baby. A much, much worse baby.

    Kevin Pollak must have been in need of a paycheck, I guess...

    Choose is an ambitious horror movie, featuring a psychopath who makes their victims choose their fates, stating that every choice has a consequence. The story is a seemingly good one and the key to finding this person is finding the pattern, a good old fashion detective story. It's a very solid story too, in the beginning they actually pretend you have a brain, and let you try and figure some things out for yourself. Initially, I was fascinated with this film, but somewhere along the way they figured that we wouldn't get it and they started dumbing it down for us, leading to an ending that just destroys the film. I absolutely fucking hate it, when I sit through and enjoy a movie, only to have it ruined at the end by some ridiculous, sensationalized, Hollywood ending that doesn't make any sense! The story was strong, the cast was great, and I was really into this thing, but like our economy, things just started getting worse and worse, leading up to an ending that was completely idiotic. It's not a bad movie, in fact it starts out as a great movie, but if you decide to give it a try, I'm warning you ahead of time, you won't like how it ends!

    What. A. Film! The number of films that are nowadays just generic trash with very little thought put into them or with a lack of story. This film may not be the best at conveying story, but it is certainly a good film with a good story. Many people who know me well enough will be able to tell I have a strong passion for horror films because they tend to have a quality that other film genres don't have: fear. But now I am finding horrors are becoming, again, generic, predictable and unscary. Choose may not be scary, but certainly shocked and put me on edge a lot of the time, with four life-changing and impossible choices that were ridiculously harsh, whilst still cleverly crafted. What helps keep this film only on the border of torture porn is the fact that it tends to focus on the detective and investigation side. This means there is lots you don't fully know about the killer because you don't see him much. Saw was not good at avoiding interacting with the killer, spending majority of films 3-7 with the killer! Anyway, the film is allround clever, dark, harsh, violent and with a very creepy ending. I wish I had kept the same atmosphere the second time I watched it, but unfortunately me and my mate just kept mocking the film and another guy I know at the same time. Oh dear!
