4.0 out of 5 stars A Superb, Twisty Turny Thriller 29 Oct 2014
By William Mason TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
This is an atmospheric, beautifully shot, and very well acted thriller. It's full of twists and turns, and clever misdirection, which keep you guessing until the end of the movie.
Cold Rock is a tired, rundown Hicksville town in Washington, USA. Like Dunblane in Scotland, it has an overwhelmingly tragic history - seventeen young children, including babes and toddlers, have gone missing, feared to be dead. The local police have no clues and no leads. Cold Rock is an isolated town, surrounded by dense forest. A legend is created about the Tall Man, who's some sort of boogeyman, or a Bigfoot, or an evil man or monster who can't be stopped. The townsfolk are down and out, drained of spirit, resigned to their fates.
Jessica Biel plays Julia, the local nurse. She's a beautiful, thirty-something widow, and a mother to a boy aged about eight, David. She lives with a close friend, Christine. One of the other locals is a mute teenager named Jenny, who alleges that she's seen the Tall Man, more than once.
I found the first twenty minutes of the film quite like Stephen King's It - children disappearing one by one from a small town in mysterious circumstances. However, the film then explodes into life, with a thrilling sequence when David is snatched from his home by a masked intruder. The next ten minutes is absolutely enthralling, involving a truck and a crazed dog. I won't say any more because it is just too good to miss.
At the midpoint of the film, there's a very clever twist in the tale. The second half of the film is all about the hunt for the missing children, and right at the end, another smart piece of misdirection is revealed.
Jessica Biel gives a superb performance as the lead actress. The supporting cast are thoroughly convincing in their roles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twists and turns like a twisty turny thing.... 23 April 2014
By BTS
Format:DVD
Great movie. A million miles away from the Hollywood conveyer belt. Unpredictable plot twists and very unusual. Great photography and cast. Check this one out. I loved it.

By Darth Maciek TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This very good film shocked me as few others did since "Seven", surprised me as few others did since the "Usual suspects" and in a couple of scenes also scared me (although ultimately it was not half as scary as I expected).

The story happens in Cold Rock, a little half-abandoned town in the state of Washington, where for the last couple of years somebody or SOMETHING abducted seventeen little children, babies or toddlers. There never was a viable suspect and no bodies were ever found. Terrified local residents nicknamed the person or THING behind those appearances "The Tall Man". A local nurse, Julia Dening (Jessica Biel), will finally become extremely concerned by the question "Who, or WHAT, is The Tall Man". A mute young girl, Jenny (Jodelle Ferland), who is the only one to really have seen "The Tall Man" with her own eyes, holds maybe some clues to solve the riddle...

This is a very clever, very surprising thriller which manages to preserve the suspense for a very long time. I managed to understand what is going on a little bit earlier than it was openly revealed, but still, it was only 10 minutes before the end...

Actors are doing great. Jessica Biel is here excellent and as always extremely beautiful. Joelle Ferland proves once again her great talent - she will be a great star one day! William B. Davis, the "Smoking Man" from X-Files, plays the role of the local old and slightly hapless sheriff - or is he really so hapless? Stephen McHattie, a Canadian veteran actor, does a great job as a tenacious detective, Lieutenant Dodd (he is mostly known from second roles, but his threatening face is rather unforgettable...). Last but not least, there is Colleen Wheeler, who plays Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNUSUAL INTELLIGENT THRILLER,BEAUTIFULLY FILMED 23 Nov 2012
By Chopper
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A really interesting movie very well made,quality acting with some great twists and turns. If you like a good thriller you should enjoy this.Fabulous scenic photography and a moody mysterious score rack up the atmostphere. However horror affecionados may be dissappointed as this is not a horror film but starts out just like one then develops into something different.
Highly recommended to fans of something slightly different and thriller junkies,one of my favourite films this year a real 'sleeper'.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE BATTLE OF ALL MOTHERS 14 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This crime/drama/mystery starts out with glass being picked out of Julie's face (Jessica Biel) then we flashback 36 hours to briefly build character. Cold Rock, Washington is a dead mining town where children frequently go missing. The town folk blame the "Tall Man." Julie is a nurse who runs the community clinic. She has taken over for her husband who was a doctor.

During this time we are introduced to Tracy (Samantha Ferris), her biker boyfriend Steven (Teach Grant), and her two teen daughters Carol (Katherine Ramdeen) who recently had a child by Steven, and Jenny (Jodelle Ferland) a self imposed mute who has seen the Tall Man. When Julie's son David is abducted, mom springs into action without thought for her personal safety.

Then the movie turns weird. We discover that the town's police car rear doors can open from the inside and poverty is a cycle that results from a broken system. The twist caught me off guard which is why I liked the film. In fact it flashes back and let's you see the clues, in case you missed them. The film raises social questions, but doesn't supply definitive answers. Good acting. Well written. I liked how the story developed. It spent just a touch too much making social comments, rather than just have the film speak for itself.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-Bomb, no nudity, no sex.
