Format: Blu-ray
Entitled is the story of Paul Dynan (Kevin Zegers - Frozen) a smart & industrious young man who is struggling to find a job in the depressed economy. When his parents foreclose on their house and cannot afford to pay for his mother's experimental medications for her terminal illness, Paul takes it upon himself to come up with the money via more unconventional means; especially if it means taking it from someone less appreciative of the wealth they were born into...

Entitled is an intelligent and enthralling thriller, Paul manipulates the marks and his team to his own end and you are never quite sure who he is actually on-side with. When one of the fathers of the rich-kids (Ray Liotta - Goodfellas) can't come up with the money himself and has to borrow from one of the others, it starts to look like he maybe in cahoots with Paul and the suspicion between the three fathers becomes electric (Stephen Mchattie - 300 & Watchmen - deserves a special mention for being absolutely unreadable) But it's not knowing who to trust that keeps the tension in place throughout this film and takes it from an average high-school thriller to a truly captivating ransom film.

Format: DVD
Kevin Zegers plays Paul Dynan a struggling young man who can't make ends meet due to hard times and an ailing mother. But he has a plan...kidnap 3 spoiled rich kids with no likeable qualities and ransom them for money. He found two people who are a little psychotic to help him. They turn out to be wild cards in Paul's grand scheme.

There is some first person narration by Paul in the beginning to describe his situation, but it ceases as the movie progresses. The movie touches on themes of anarchy and class warfare. Decent acting, well written.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

Format: DVD
This is one of those films where you are not sure whose side to take. It is basically about Paul Dynan (Kevin Zegers of `Frozen' and `Dawn of the Dead'). He was a good student but because of the social strictures that still persist he is not one of the chosen few, so never gets the breaks, whilst the children of the privileged backgrounds just sail effortlessly through life. His loving parent's do all they can to help him as he still has to live at home. His Mom has an illness that requires expensive medication that the insurance company have decided to stop paying for. He is basically at a dead end.

So together with his two unlikable associates he decides to kidnap three of these privileged kids and hold them to ransom. He thinks he has left nothing to chance, but does not count on the mental attitude of his co conspirators. Meanwhile the fathers of the three kids are all taking a boys only break at one of their mountain retreats, one of whom is Ray Liotta who always gives good value for money. The tension at the ransom site is palpable as is the tension among the fathers as one by one their own masks of deceit fall away. As the plot unfolds it is awkward to see who the entitled of the title actually are. Is it a reference to the over privileged, rich kids or the down trodden poor kids who deserves their money? This is never answered and that is probably a good thing.

This is one of the better thrillers that are out there, and whilst it does trade on the inevitable and some would say de rigueur twists, this has enough of a plot and indeed character development to make it actually worth a second viewing.
