Critic Reviews for Choose
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.
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.

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...
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!
