4.0 out of 5 stars Seek this out!, 6 Nov 2005
This review is from: Hide And Seek [DVD] (DVD)
I didn't know too much about the stoyline for the film before watching, which is probably the best way to enjoy a good thriller. This is definitely one of the best thrillers I have seen for a long while. It is as good as Secret window, What lies beneath, so if you liked those you'll love this.
De Niro plays a father who looks after his traumatised child after the unexpected death of his wife. They head to new surroundings in the countryside to make a new start. Life isn't straight forward when the little girls friend Charlie decides to make life difficult! Hide and seek is a enjoyable film with good actors, a great performance from Dakota Flemming as the little girl Emily. The big house in the countryside does feel creepy and sets the right atmosphere for the film especially at night in the darkness and with obscure shadows. A great story with a great ending, well acted and directed, fans of thrillers will love.
The DVD has a commentary by the director, 4 alternative endings all very similar and only affect the very last scene. It has 14 deleted scenes only a couple would have been good to see in the final film. Both the endings and deleted scenes come with optional commentary. There is a short 10 minute making of which has brief comments form the main cast and director. There are also a few ideas that were done on storyboard but not filmed in the previs section. Overall a great film with some good extras 8/10.
