SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED AS A DECENT THRILLER,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Faces In The Crowd [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
For anyone wanting to see Milla in something more serious than the Resident evil film,this could be the one for you. She plays a womam who witnesses another woman being killed by a serial killer,is chased,runs,drops of a bridge and bangs her head on the way down.
Once she wakes up,she fails to recognize her lover and only just recognizes friends,then soon realizes faces keep changing.
After she realizes she has to live with this,she has to think of ways to recognize others before their faces change again.
Then there's the case of the killer on the loose and a seemingly obnoxious cop wanting more information than she can give.
This all works very well and i was tempted to give it five stars,but i suppose it's a little short of being quite that good. It's well told and great performances help it along,some of it may be a little predictable,but not too much so in my opinion. It's a little odd seeing the world as she does,but it gets the point of her confusion across very interestingly. I was dreading this would be an OH DEAR! movie,but far from it,it's a decent thriller adding something new to the formula,so i'll certainly watch it again someday.
I liked the way certain things were done,how they came together in a way that a lot of thought had clearly been put into it and it does keep you guessing as to just how it will all end.
Maybe you'll join the few who hate this,or perhaps you'll recognize it as a surprisingly good film.
