2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept but really quite poor..., 27 Feb 2006
This review is from: House Of Nine [DVD] (DVD)
The concept of this film is good – nine people are locked in a house and told that the one surviving member will win £5 million dollars.
Unfortunately it fails on many levels. Firstly the characters are all stereotypical; the bimbo, the good priest, the bad boy gangster, the drug addict with a troubled past etc etc. Dennis Hopper’s accent is terrible, in fact it took me 30 minutes to realise he was supposed to be Irish and Kelly Brook cried and screamed a lot but achieved very little else.
While the concept of tempting people with a lot of money was a good idea none of the characters were very likeable so when they quickly turned mad and started killing each other I just didn’t care, in fact some of the characters were so irritating that I wouldn’t have minded had they been killed off earlier.
The best bit of this film was the ending but even that was a little predictable. I wouldn’t bother with this film unless you had nothing else to do and you were prepared to suspend all belief for a while. If you want to watch a film where people are trapped in a room and need to escape – watch Saw.
