The Disappearance of Alice Creed Blu-Ray Review

The Disappearance of Alice Creed Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: On a suburban street, two masked men seize a young woman. They bind and gag her and take her to an abandoned, soundproofed apartment. She is Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton), daughter of a millionaire. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic (Eddie Marsan) and his younger accomplice Danny (Martin Compston), have worked out a meticulous plan. But Alice is not going to play the perfect victim – she’s not giving in without a fight. In a tense power-play of greed, duplicity and survival we discover that sometimes disappearances can be deceptive…

Review: This film is a tricky one.  On the surface you may think it cliche.  The premise is simple, a kidnapped daughter of a wealthy businessman.  This film, which is a directorial debut by J. Blakeson, is anything but cliche or predictable.   Its hard to believe that this is Blakeson's first time around the bend, because the pacing is perfect, the visuals are great and he really seems to have a knack for what he is doing.  I can only imagine how he'll grow with time.

We don't want to reveal any spoilers about the end, but it will catch you off guard!  This film is dreary, dynamic, dramatic and fun all in one ball of crazy.  A notable performance in this by Gemma Arterton, who I just recently saw in "Three and Out".  She is a phenominal actress.  We highly recommend that you check this one out.  The blu-ray is the best way to go, can't beat high-definition.

The special features on this blu-ray set include: Audio Commentary with Writer/Director J Blakeson, "Phones" Deleted Scene (with optional commentary by Writer/Director J Blakeson), "Alice Gets The Gun" Extended Scene (with optional commentary by Writer/Director J Blakeson), Outtakes, Storyboard Comparison and the Trailer.

Interest Range: Drama, Action
