It's good movie to watch
½ January 5, 2016
A mystery thriller with plenty of twists and turns throughout. It gets a little boring and slow, but it is still a decent watch

Columbus Circle est un tout petit film réalisé par George Gallo et écrit par Kevin Pollak, un thriller bourré de twists, surtout dans la dernière demi-heure, avec des acteurs à contre-emploi (Giovanni Ribisi y est sain d'esprit, Jason Lee diabolique et Samm Levine responsable) et un sens du rythme particulièrement bon. Selma Blair est parfaite en riche héritière agoraphobe et possède une belle alchimie avec la trop rare Amy Smart. Columbus Circle n'a aucune prétention, aucune réelle autre ambition que de divertir son spectateur et il le fait bien.

Columbus Circle was a decent mystery flick but it was much to shallow to make it great. The story revolved around a women who has been staying up in a fancy apartment for years without anyone knowing who she really is. It is very interesting as the story about her unfolds and along the way there are many twists and turns. Most of those twists are easy to spot coming but some are shocking and really draw you in. The actors compiled for this film were great but at times the acting from some of them seemed weak. Toward the end the story gets a little over the top and while it had a satisfying ending it still felt like something more was needed. If you are just looking for a quick fix of mystery and suspense, Columbus Circle should provide what your looking for. If you want something with depth,passion and great acting, there are better choices out there.

Starts out with an interesting premise but quickly becomes predictable and lame. No compelling surprises. It redeems itself a little in the end.

The flimsy script and absent plot may have been kept alive if the characters weren't so dull and boring.

(2010) Columbus Circle
SUSPENSE

An elderly lady gets murdered from her "Columbus Circle" apartment without a revelation who the perpetrator might be. Detective Frank Giardello (Giovanni Ribisi) is in charge of the case, and tries to impose for more questions answered by asking the lady who is living across the old lady who had been murdered earlier. At first she refuses to get involved until the detective threatens her with a warrant. By the time she invites him in, she then informs him her name is Abigail Clayton (Selma Blair), and we find out that she rarely steps one foot out the door since she has a phobia. And after the detective leaves, we are then shown in flashbacks that she's a victim of physical abuse, which may be the reason why she keeps her lifestyle in isolation. Because the apartment is left vacant, Abigail then makes a call to someone whom we find out later is a doctor named Dr. Ray Fontaine. And calls him to rent the apartment where the elder lady had been murdered on located across where she's living in, except that it had already been rented out already by a young couple- Charles Stanford (Jason Lee) and Lillian Hart (Amy Smart). What happens next is a series of revelations, twists and turns. Despite a superficial ending, the ending made no sense whatsoever.

2 out of 4 stars

A nice little thriller with twists that are not hard to figure out, and a mildly surprising ending. It's a psychological roller-coaster you'll be pleased with. There are quite a few cameos in this one, with the bulk of the acting being darn good. Selma Blair rocks!

Good performances by actors. Though predictable, the players carry the plot. Satisfying though somewhat unprobable ending. Possible spoilers --> I don't thing someone with agoraphobia could snap out of it that quickly. The relationship between the protagonist and the detective should have been more developed.

"Her time of remaining that way will be coming to an end"

****

The plot was simplistic, & most likely predictable for a viewer that tries to predict a movie; but bored I was not.

Driven by fear Abigail Clayton would rather live completely alone then be used & abused as a pawn; only child & heiress to her father's fortune & empire she escapes the eyes of the world on her eighteenth birthday by going into complete reclusiveness in one of Manhattans richest sides of town. Shortly after the death of her elderly neighbor her time of remaining that way will be coming to an end.

Netflix recommended this one to me and I really enjoyed it. A great cast (Selma Blair, Amy Smart, Jason Lee, Giovanni Ribisi, Kevin Pollack and Beau Bridges) and some interesting plot twists make it a fun ride. Sure it's a bit predictable, but if you're just looking for a decent way to spend 90 minutes, this certainly would fit the bill. It's weird that no critics have reviewed this movie yet, but don't let that deter you. It's not the best movie ever but it's at least entertaining.

Although the plot is a bit too elaborate than it needs to be it was overall an enjoyable experience.

Started off mediocre but soon short lived and lost interest at a rapid rate
December 17, 2013
Decent psychological thriller.
November 5, 2013
A smart thriller full of the sort of twists and turns that keep the viewer guessing as to what is really going on and why. Excellent performances by the two stars (Selma Blair and Amy Smart) with equally strong supporting performances.

Excessively contrived but somewhat interesting suspense--Flatters to deceive!!
