| Tense Polanski Film!
Frantic is a vastly underrated film directed by the talented Roman Polanksi. I think this film is underrated because most people expect this film to be a thriller or an action film. This movie in a way is a thriller film but it has the aura of a Hitchcock film. I think anyone who watches this movie with a clear mind will see genius filmmaking.

This film is about a husband and a wife who are both doctors. After they arrive in Paris and suffer through a mix-up of luggage, the wife gets kidnapped. It's up to the husband to do what he can to get her back safe in his hands.

The only mainstream actor here that everyone knows is Harrison Ford. Ford is really good and his demeanor is perfect for this movie. The other actors were okay but nothing really special.

Overall, this is a tense thriller with some very good filmmaking put into it. This film is not Roman Polanski's best, but it's still quite good. There are a few slow moments, but nothing a ordinary moviegoer won't handle. I rate this film 8/10.
