Starts off strong with an interesting premise and some quirky comedy, then theres a tone shift about 30mins in and the film never recovers. At least the shift from comedy to drama between acts doesn't shift again into a cliche romance at the end. There was certainly hints that they were going there.
Terrible film. From the set up for the obvious twist right at the beginning to the very end, McQueen fails to do anything but push political agendas and stereotypes in place of building characters or providing real world context and ends up making one of the most bland movies of 2018. There isn't enough honest emotion to qualify as a drama and there isn't enough realism or tight scripting to be a good thriller. Maybe this was a comedy and the joke's on us?
Much less about horror and survival than you'd think, this is mostly about a woman's emotional journey to face here past through flashbacks. At first this feels authentic but towards the middle it veers into Steven King's attempt to go full white knight and tap into his abused feminine side. Anyway, it's not much more than 127 Hours with a horror twist but Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood do a great job. Thankfully, the dream sequences where all the dialogue happen waste little time pretending they're real, so the dialogue all has a lot of dry wit as the sarcastic ghosts banter. The third act is surprisingly satisfying with more closure than the typical Steven King story. Worth a watch but a bit over hyped.
Surprisingly well done Action/Thriller. Some of the CGI is cheap and the dialogue can be hit or miss but the plot is actually pretty strong. If you can look past the technical inaccuracies and the out there premise that starts the whole thing off it actually stays thoughtful and grounded outside of the close calls and sacrifices you would expect from the genre. the Impossible choices are given the correct amount of weight and everybody defends their positions surprisingly well for this type of movie. What lengths would you go to if you could stop WW3?
