The Gift is a tense, unsettling and expertly crafted psychological thriller that keeps the audience consistently on edge. [Full review in Japanese]

It's a concept that's more often the basis of arrested development comedies about late bloomers who finally come into their own, but there's nothing funny about how the past looms over the adults that Gordo and Simon have become.

Edgerton's talent as an actor has been evident for a while, but The Gift announces him as a genuine triple threat.

The Gift chillingly illustrates what happens when fate reunites a class bully (Jason Bateman) with his prize victim, Gordo (Edgerton).

Clever and atmospheric, the film has enough twists to keep the average viewer guessing.

Officially, this is a blank-from-hell movie. But Edgerton has remixed the formula.

The Gift's reveal isn't worthy of the apprehension it creates, which is chiefly down to three classy performances. Thriller fans may be reasonably sated but The Gift lacks distinct juju.

The Gift is like finding a gem in a summer of mostly mediocre films. It's character-driven, well-developed, smartly written and finely acted.

The Gift might not smash the boundaries of genre filmmaking but therein lies its appeal; a smart, well-made thriller that balances high-minded cinema with genre thrills.

This is as solid a debut as a director could hope for, and I eagerly anticipate what Edgerton will cook up next.
