Tom's Review of Trance

4 years ago via Flixster


(3 1/2 Stars) Trance is a solidly directed and edited movie by Danny Boyle. Confusing? Yes. But Boyle's the perfect director for confusing. The art heist portion of the movie is very entertaining and going into Simon's (James McAvoy) subconscious is inventive. But the further you get into the movie, the further you wonder what is reality and what is just a trance. Maybe that's the point of the thriller, but it borders on frustrating. It sort of ties together at the end, but the more you think about the movie, the more you wonder what's supposed to be blatantly open because it's part of someone's psyche or just a plot hole. However, with Boyle at the helm and a great cast, I still think Trance is a solid rental.
