I wanted to like it. I've always liked Helen Hunt and Jon Tenney. Seemed interesting by the description. I turned it off after about 30 minutes. I really couldn't get past the fact that Helen's face had either had too much plastic surgery, or they used CGI to smooth out every conture of her face. I read later what the movie is about. It's not what you think. I appreciate movies with twists and turns but this was a dud.
I did love it but I think the hype was a bit much like a lot of other reviewers. One critics review said it was the scariest ever and that some people had to turn it off. That I did not experience. But it was suspenseful and had some good scares. I still recommend it. The young lady who played the lead did an excellent job. Actually all the child actors were really good.
Bad acting, except for the old man in the wheelchair! Seemed like a bad movie you'd catch on a Saturday afternoon because you have absolutely nothing else to do. That's about the only time I would recommend watching this. Or if you confined to a hospital bed with no remote in sight and you have no choice but to watch it.
I'll say it had a nice twist. Some of the acting was so-so. Yes the kids are whiny and annoying but considering what they were going through, understandable. I gave up on it twice until I finally finished it. I would recommend it overall.
To me, the ending was like they didn't know how to end the story, so lets just kill them. But Ed Harris is wonderful and so sexy in this movie. I've watched it many times! The rest of the cast is great as well.
I know Tom Cruise is a bit of a kook in real life. But I really enjoy his action movies. This is one of the best. A classic action movie, no CGI, great acting and love the humor in it! Highly recommend.
Can't tell you how bad it really is...turned it off after 10 minutes
One of the worst movies I've ever tried to watch. Everyone involved in making this movie should pay anyone who attempted to watch it. And a handsome reward for anyone who actually watched it all the way through.
The acting was excellent especially the young lead actress. I would not categorize it as a horror movie. A good solid drama. If you are looking for an action packed movie, this is not it. I would still recommend it.
