Britains disconnect of the classes

I guess a lot of people will be disappointed by the movie expecting either a funny games rip off or a modern day torture-porn movie by the straight plot of "Cherry Tree Lane". Thank god its neither... the plot is simple... a middle class couple sits at the dinner table when some gangster friends of their son turn up, take them hostage and hint to plans of killing their son for snitching on one of the gangsters cousins. The couple is bound and gagged and they are waiting for the son to come home. That is the basic setup... there is little dialog, the unfolding is slow and all physical violence is shown off screen. So this is no exploitation movie. From early on its playing on the differences between the couple and the teenage gangsters. There is no common ground here and its all in the little things like when they flip through the DVDs, the choice of drinks and TV channels with lack of interest. There are many similarities to movies like Eden Lake here, especially because this movie takes things to one and another extreme until the credits roll. At first I thought the idea of introducing 2 girls and their little brother in the mid of the movie was a bit off reality but it made total sense in taking hints (like the constant tossing of things) in how they all are as ignorant towards each other as they are to the couple and the situation itself to a more direct level. Its quite a different approach for this subject and many will focus on the violence itself or complain about a lack of on screen violence. This is not a movie for you, so stay away. And although I wouldn't put Funny Games and Cherry Tree Lane in one drawer this is a movie that serves many Haneke elements up until an end that does not resolve anything. Its a pretty bleak movie and its one in a row with many like Eden Lake, Harry Brown, London to Brighton etc. ... I guess its a sign of the times ... and Britain seems a lot more damaged than the rest of the world today.

A spoon full of nothing.

Another hoody film. A boring couple have their home invaded by some scumbags looking to exact revenge on their son. The usual tying up and degradation of the main characters takes place. The problem is I didn't care about them. The characters were so clichéd and one dimensional that I felt nothing for them. The lead thug is just a ridiculous ball of unthinking testosterone that he's unbelievable. Couple this with his sidekick thug with a heart and it just gets stupider. I spent the whole film just hating the main thug, which I suppose was the intent. But I was just waiting to see him die and had no interest with anything else. Then just when you think the limits of believability can't be stretched any further, the thug's girlfriend shows up with her little brother in tow to watch. I think even an idiot would doubt a school child's ability to keep his mouth shut about witnessing the events which take place, but they let him stay all the same. I'm not really a fan of the this kind of film but I had enjoyed the directors other films so I thought I'd check it out. Now I've seen it I never want to see it again.

Meaningless Waste of Time

I was tricked into watching this film by a review, so I feel obligated to give my own so there will be no more casualties..! This movie can not really be called a thriller: there is no real suspense and nothing is surprising;you can tell how things will evolve from the first minute that the actual "plot" starts. I actually fast forward it many times and compelled to rerun it, only to find that nothing had happened in between. All in all, this was a wooden, disturbing presentation of a lower class youth, with a completely unsuccessful attempt to portray a dysfunctional family, lacking all definitions of any meaning of film.
