Cast of Three...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Disappearance of Alice Creed [DVD] (DVD)
It just goes to show a gripping, exciting thriller can be made without spending millions of pounds, or a cast of thousands of "name" actors. It also goes to show that us Brits make fantastic films.
The film begins with two men preapring a flat to kidnap a hostage, stapling carpet underlay to the walls, securing doors and "preparing" the bed. The kidnap itself then takes place, which is a scene which is quite disturbing, and makes you think this is going to be a film full of violence towards the captive. It is not. Get past this scene, and although the film has a continual threat of violence, the story line of bluff and counter-bluff, cross and double-cross draws you in, leaving you gasping "well I did not expect that!".
Well acted by the three characters, all of whom are beleiveable.
