4.0 out of 5 stars classy little thriller 26 April 2012
Format:DVD
First of all I have to say that contrary to another reviewer's assumption I am not in love with any of the leads in this film, but perhaps I like to watch things with some intelligence behind them sometimes and don't need to only watch constant shoot outs and car chases to not be bored! This is a clever little movie which is very much in the psychological guessing game genre. True, other films have tackled similar ideas (the one which came to my mind was Shutter Island) but this was well handled with a real sense of melancholy underlying the story. Recommended perhaps as one to rent rather than buy though as the twist can only be a surprise once.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a Twist to throw you off track 7 Feb 2012
By Valerie J. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz star in this psychological thriller as a couple, Will and Libby Atenton, who live in their dream house with their two young daughters. Will has retired from his job as a New York editor and plans to write a book. Libby spends her time decorating their new home. But someone is watching them. One of the daughters reports a face at the window and Will finds footprints outside their home, not to mention youths in the basement burning candles,who say that the previous occupants of the house were all murdered. Will starts to investigate and discovers more than he bargained for.

But when Will discovers who the man is,he struggles to believe it. A clue to the mystery is the woman who lives across the road, Anne Patterson.

This is a different type of role for Daniel Craig who often plays the action man but in this he is a vulnerable family man, trying to protect his family but from whom? Dream House is more in the lines of Amityville Horror than Casino Royale. Although nearly all is revealed rather too soon in the movie which left me wondering what the rest of the movie could possibly be about, there is still a bit of a twist to throw you off track that you might not see coming. Or maybe you will. I found it well worth seeing.

Directed by Jim Sheridan, who also directed My Left Foot (1989) and The Boxer (1997)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, 20 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
This is a great film that does not need gore or CG effects. Its not a horror as I first thought it was, but a nicely acted and well scripted movie ghost/psychology. I am very glad that Daniel Craig retains his english accent in the film. I think its for the more mature movie lover that does not crave massive Hollywood style visuals for a film. (though I love all films big and small) Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are great British actors who dont often get it wrong. This is a good film with great international actors all around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugley underrated, This is such a great film... 28 April 2012
By hennez
Format:DVD
The film is highly underrated and is very good.

The storyline is very good and is filled with twists and turns. The reason why people don't like this film I think is because of the large storyline and how at times you are confused and are left to work out what is going on. I think this is excellent because instead of being predictable, it leaves you thinking.

The acting is stunning and Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Whatts are all brilliant.

The film is a thriller but is slightly scary. I don't think it should be a 15, it has 1 F word, 2 S words and a few scary scenes. The film is exciting and is very clever. I love it and would watch it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as obvious as some would claim 12 Jan 2012
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I read on IMDB that the trailer for this film gives the game away so if you fancy it avoid the trailer. I didn't see the big reveal coming at all and its quite a suprise when the film changes direction. The only problem is that when it does the rest of the film just doesn't live up to the build up.
The basic story is about an editor resigning to write his novel in his dream house with his lovely family in the country. He discovers a stranger lurking outside the house at night and a group of kids re-enacting a murder in his basement. This leads to him discovering that the previous occupants of the house were all murdered but why is everyone so unhelpful when he tries to find out the truth about what happened?
I can't get past Daniel Craig being James Bond as he is a little one dimensional and makes no effort to put on an American accent as opposed to Mrs Craig aka Rachel Weisz who does a pretty good one and gives a good performance as his screen wife. A practice run perhaps? Naomi Watts is also good and the kids are great, especially when the little one keels over. There are no real scares in this movie, just a build up of tension and the denouement is totally predictable but overall its a watchable movie for a quiet evening when the option is Celebrity Big Brother!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'd love a cup of tea.... 14 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
A family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed...only to find themselves the killer's next target.

Successful publisher Will Atenton quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby, and his two girls to a quaint New England town.

But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children.

And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived.

When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from a neighbour who was close to the family that died.....

Believe me when I say this. If you have not read any reviews, but have heard how dire the film is, and the fact that the two leads have disowned the movie, watch it and revel in the fact that this is one good movie.

I can understand that this has been compared to 'The Shining;, thanks to the advertising, and the trailer makes this look like any other horror movie (insidious and the aforementioned came into mind before seeing this), but it's something so very different, and the surprise is just how well made the film is.

Craig and Weisz are very good in their respective roles, and although Watts just spends the majority of the film leeching over Craig, she plays a big part of the overall story.

I was thinking that halfway through the film that this was mundane, and where was Sheridan going with it, and then something happens, and the fact that this film has been slated so much, it literally made me sit up and take notice in what I was seeing.

and from there, it turns into a completely different movie, and it becomes evident it has more to do with 'The Jacket' than anything else.

it's not worth spoiling, but there are two big twists in this film, that make it one of the most under-rated films of 2011.

See it, thinking it will be a piece of garbage, and you may enjoy it more.
