I picked up this low budget American thriller for just under three pound, I wasn't expecting a great deal when I purchased the movie but I really did enjoy it.

In 'While She Was Out', Kim Basinger stars as a middle class housewife, the mother of twin children and married to a domineering husband. After a night's shopping trip at the mall on Christmas eve, a gang of thugs set out to murder her as a revenge after she left a stern note on their car when they double parked in the mall's busy parking lot. She crashes her car into a forest and the chase is on, Basinger's character Delia must now fight for her life, with only the tools from her toolbox from her car to protect her. It reminded me of 'Eden Lake' (which I enjoyed), only not as 'nasty', I think that I prefer this straight to DVD film though.

Whilst 'While She Was Out' may be in many ways your standard thrilller, it is well worth a watch. A basic story, no real surprises but an entertaining independent film nevertheless with some good performances (Kim is as wonderful as ever and Lukas Haas as the psychotic thug is also excellent.)

'While She Was Out' is not a terrible film,Its not even a bad film. The pacing of the film is very good ( minus the exciting car chases and explosions), and there is enough plot in it to make it interesting. If your a thriller fan and are expecting the film to be of the same pedigree as 'Enemy of the State' or 'Taken' etc then the film will disappoint. If you are a gore hound and are expecting 'severance'(very funny), 'paradise Lost' or the incredibly Sick 'Wolf Creek' then you will be disappointed. There is enough violence in it to make the few scenes believable. 'while She was out' Is a B movie but a good 'B movie'.

Kim Basinger is a 'grade A' actress and like her performance in 'cellular'(everyone likes a car chase) her performance makes the film.

This film is by far the best movie that I have ever seen Kim Basinger in. She stars as a woman who suffers at the hands off an abusive husband and so on a night just before christmas, she goes to the mall to do some last minute shopping and finds no parking spaces. When she does finally find a space it is taken up by a car that has parked over two spaces. Annoyed, she leaves them a nasty message and it's a decision that changes the rest of her night as the people she leaves the message for are now her worst nightmare as they chase after her with anger and rage now at her as she was an eye witness to the gang murdering a security guard.

Im only reviewing this movie because it was a small dvd release and most people have probably never heard of it, this is actually a really good thriller, it has a simple storyline but is done with style, its great to see kim basinger doing a lead role in a gory type thriller, she is still "totally hot!!" dont look over this movie as its worth a watch.

This movie relies heavily on whether you are the sort of person that sits back and questions nothing, accepting that what is happening is the only option of each and every character. However, if like me, you find yourself going, "What is she doing? Why doesn't she..." then you may well be disappointed with this movie...

80's sex symbol Kim Basinger is the lead playing Della, a woman who married her High School sweetheart, had kids and lives in a big suburban house. Unfortunately, the husband appears to have reduced her to a quivering wreck, as we see that she no longer looks after herself or the house. Whilst we are meant to feel sorry for her, we end up wanting to shake her to life. When the film starts I'm asking myself why she's not been in movies lately, twenty minutes in I fully understand.

The film tells the sad tale of how aside from being unloved, she wants to get the kids nice Christmas presents, however as it's Christmas Eve and she's not got anything yet(?!) she decides to take a trip out to a late night mall. After an altercation in the parking lot she is chased by a group of youths and here on lies the basis of the movie in a cat and mouse game, whereby things get a little unbelievable and strange.

Heading off into woods we see Kim lugging around a large toolbox which is a strange choice being as you are trying to run away from people. She never seems to be wanting to move quickly either, frustratingly fast walking rather than running. I won't say anymore about the film other than amongst the frustration there are some flashes back to David Morrell's Rambo, and being as this is only about 75 minutes long it's quite entertaining.

An interesting end will leave you with questions of consequences of actions, and a possible list of things you would improve. That said this is watchable, and the acting okay, I just think Della's character is flawed from beginning to end.

Format: DVD
Della is an abused wife and she's about as beaten down as a person can be. One night, she is accosted in a mall parking lot by four young hoodlums who then follow her to the woods. As the brutal thugs close in on her, she finds herself fighting for her life.

Kim Basinger used to be a big star and a good actress, but not this time. This is a cheaply-made and amateurish movie that uses violence and gore in place of character and dialogue. There aren't any surprises and it actually gets tedious waiting for the baddies to catch Della, but armed with only her trusty tool box, she manages to overcome years of abuse and emerge a strong woman in short order. Lukas Haas plays the gang leader and he's good at playing ruthless types, but his dialogue gets sillier and sillier and his last scene is nothing if not bizarre and ridiculous.

A quickie indie movie that features repulsive characters tormenting a fragile woman; it gets old fast.
