Reviews

Light drama starring Josh Hutcherson and Hayden Panettiere. Joshua (Hutcherson) has a talent - he is able to recreate any painting given to him. So when local art forger Everly (Alfred Molina) promises Joshua he can make him millions, he agrees to forge a specific painting which is apparently lost but in doing so gets tangled in a web of lies and betrayal.

And he's magnificent in this otherwise bland film. I quite like that girl from scream 4 too. Not a bad film. But not great either. Buy for mr hutcherson alone.

Format: DVD
This film is just poor, it is badly written, it's bland and for the most part uninteresting. However this film has an unbelievable cast. Josh Hutcherson (Hunger Games), Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville and Scream 4), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Billy body (The Lord of the Rings) and acting legend Lauren Bacall. Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) turns up as a white trash drug addict, who is Hutcherson's mum in unneccessary scene. The scene's where Hutcherson and Molina are creating a forgery is actually quite interesting to watch, and it's the one thing which the director seems to have got right.

I can see why the cast would sign up to do this the story is actually quite interesting but in a more adept director it would have been so much better. The cast are clearly having fun playing off each other, while Hutcherson and Panettiere romance is believable and the two share some decent chemistry more than he does with Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games.

Unfortunately this film suffers from decisions not making any sense. Example a forger who has been under suspicion before by the police admits to being a forger, yet is never arrested. Molina's character needs to sell a forgery otherwise the loan sharks will get him, yet you never see it and instead of kidnapping or threatening Hutcherson when Hutcherson decides to hold out on the painting, Molina tries to play mind games.. In one scene Panettiere insists he's not old enough for her, yet by the end the two are making out. To be fair Panettiere makes the most of her screen time with her underwritten character.

I am giving this film two stars simply because while I do not despise it I cannot give it the two and half it deserves, because it had potential mixed with a good cast but squanders it to really bad effect.

Simply put this film is one for the fans of the cast, which is why I rented this film, otherwise avoid..

Josh Hutcherson is brilliant as the young artist it has a great cast you really feel for the character of Josh a victim of abuse and loneliness struggling to find someone he can trust and is trying to make the right decisions in a world of forgery and lies

Love this film so much. Josh Hutcherson is perfect in this film (SHIRTLESS SCENE - OH WOW.) It's a reliable film, one in which the whole family can enjoy. :D
