Attempts a single expectation subversion to avoid being creepy and awkward, but utterly fails. I had to keep pausing the movie because I physically could not handle how bad it is. Also, it is rather boring.
Thriller with a lurid subject matter and some nice twists and turns that make it stand out of the pack. What hampers the movie somewhat are the budgetary constraints and the writing which could have used more fine tuning and depth to make this more special. Still, the actors are good and the direction is pretty confident eventhough it lacks real flair and character. So all in all a good movie.
Franchement, rien à redire des acteurs qui sont parfaits dans leurs rôles respectifs, mus par une entraînante et respectable conviction. Puis, lorsque les méandres de l'histoire s'invitent dans les zones discutables d'un retournement de situation, on commence déjà à sourciller sur quelques invraisemblances scénaristiques, pour en définitive exécrer un final d'un foisonnant et percutant ridicule. www.cinefiches.com
Ever since the Cleveland Kidnapper, there's been a glut of these captive films. Pet is an ambitious and creative thriller that crumbles early in its runtime due to the screenplay's stilted dialogue and its acting which doesn't sell that dialogue. All the ideas and concepts could've made is so great, but its execution, outside of its competent photography, makes it a disappointing miss.
Yet another installment in "the trailer looks great but the film kinda sucks" series. I'm upset that the first two acts of this film dilute the ultimate message, which centers around the psychosis of serial killing and abduction. It definitely is a mindfuck in the sense that there are unexpected turns, but it really stands alone as an uninteresting, dragged-out experiment that doesn't entirely work. Try it and see.
