Collin's Review of Compliance

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


This is a well a well acted, suspenseful but frustrating film to watch. How far would you go to obey an authority figure. If it were not for the bumper stating it was based on true events, I simply would have given up on the film early on as implausible. I would felt initially as though the screenwriter must take be taking the audience for suckers. The film only becomes more implausible the further into the movie you go. However, Zobel has taken the circumstances in the film from actual police reports. The magic of the film is what happens after it is viewed. You simply can't stop thinking about it. Take a friend so you can talk about it on the way home.
