I'm never playing Hide and Seek again!,
This review is from: Hide And Seek [DVD] (DVD)
After the suicide of his wife Dr David Calloway (Robert DeNiro) moves to a remote part of America in order to help his daughter Emily (Dakota Fanning) recover from the trauma only for her to find an invisible friend called Charlie . . .
Very good! This film had me glued to the screen. With a gradual build up, at times slow, the film becomes darker and scarier until the final twist at the end which was a bit of a let down but still fitted perfectly with the film. Robert DeNiro did a great performance but it was Dakota Fanning who stole the show as the creepy daughter.
I looked at the alternate endings and personally I felt that the third and forth were the only ones worth a look at. The DVD also includes the usual 'Making Of' feauterette (worth a look), commentaries and deleted scenes.
Overall, with a good storyline, great performances, a creepy feel, a bit of suspense, you will never want to play Hide and Seek again.
