Format: DVD
Simon (James McAvoy) is an art auctioneer who participates as the inside man in an art heist. He double crosses his partners and hides the painting himself. However, due to a nasty bump on the head he gets amnesia and forgets where he stashed the painting. After some unsuccessful torture, his partners in crime take him to see hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson) as a way to restore his memory. Elizabeth quickly figures out these guys are the art thieves and wants a piece of the action when they recover the painting.

Now at this point the plot develops layers. People go in and out of trances and see things and you try to figure out what is real and not real. This film is a crime/mystery/thriller/drama that keeps you thinking. Franck (Vincent Cassel) is the ring leader and wants the painting. Worth a view.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, full frontal celebrity nudity (Rosario Dawson)

Wow! I thought, as the first ten minutes of `Trace' went by - it's like an updated version of Danny Boyle's masterpiece `Trainspotting.' Everything said Trainspotting to begin with - the narration, the direction, the quick cutting and the way the main character told us the `rules' of the world we were about to see.

Then it all sort of changed. Yes, the direction was still slick. London shows off its coolest side with the buildings and architecture and Danny Boyle does what he's best at by showing off his style as much as possible.

It's about a gang of art thieves of misplace their latest stolen painting and turn to a hypnotherapist to retrieve the information from the man who had forgotten where he put it. And that's the story. The hypnotherapist trying to get the information. Because of the nature of `delving into people's minds,' we're able to play around with reality in the way the story is told. All this reminded me of Inception (albeit without the folding streets) and, once again, it all looks visually amazing.

You've heard of `style over substance;' well this is more a case of `style over story.' Trance looks amazing. But the story could be summed up in about half an hour and it doesn't warrant the full ninety minutes treatment. Yes, there are some twists and turns along the way that you might not see coming, but the characters themselves - being thieves - are a pretty unlikeable bunch who I doubt you'll care much about their fate.

Trance - once again - proves that Danny Boyle is a master of making things look cool and stylish. However, I just got a bit bored with the lack of story. It's not a terrible movie, it's just it could have been so much better. I see that there's plenty of people who have given it five star reviews. I expect Trance is a film that (some of us) need to sit down and watch again to fully appreciate. I may just have to do that.

Great movie, I will warn it gets a fair bit darker than the trailer would imply, definitely deserves its age certificate. Some of the cinematography works, some of it is a little plastic and contrived, but the overall aesthetic is reasonably solid. Most importantly, the script is excellent, with original plot twists I really did not see coming and an ending I doubt anybody will expect. Vincent Cassel gives the best performance as a brutish but realistic career criminal. 7/10, would certainly consider getting on DVD. Prepare not to trust what your eyes are seeing.

By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 July 2013
Format: DVD
Trance is directed by Danny Boyle if you didn't already know, because most of the hype surrounding this film seems to be coming from who is directing, rather than the story or the acting or anything conventionally considered an important component of a 'good film'. However, Trance (from Director Danny Boyle - 127 Hours - Sunshine - Slumdog Millionaire - 28 Days Later) may just be Boyle's first slip-up.

Trance is the story of Simon (James McAvoy - Welcome To The Punch) - an auctioneer for a high-end art house who steals a painting (Goya's Witches in the Air) with the assistance of an art thief, Franck (Vincent Cassel - Ocean's Eleven) - however, during the heist Franck knocks Simon out and causes some brain damage. Upon coming round, Simon cannot remember what he has done with the painting. Even with a little gentle 'persuasion' Simon still cannot remember despite his best efforts. Franck has no choice but to involve expert hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson - New Year's Eve) to assist with releasing his memory of what he did with the painting.

I looked forward to watching this,being a DANNY BOYLE film,but I got frustrated halfway through and though it has a good ending,i wasn't left impressed.
The story is of an art heist,he gets knocked out,can't remember where he put the painring and the other crooks try hypnosis to find the memory and the painting. The first half really works well,with the hypnotist giving you the thought she's up to something,but what?

Then it gets very odd,trying to be INCEPTION,with odd looks into the mind of the crook with the memory loss,the trance scenes become so blurred into the lines of reality it can easily lose it's viewers. I did appreciate the end,where more twists actually explained things and no doublt left a lot of people smiling at this puzzle of movie finally coming together,but that said,it left me thinking of how much I can sell the blu ray for.

For a Danny Boyle movie,this is a huge disappointment. If it kept at the style of the first half and didn't disappear up itself,keeping the end as it is to explain all,then that would've left me satisfied,but this partial mess didn't.

I'm sure the female nudity will please some,but,it is done in a slightly odd way,going on about shaving her lower regions for the reason given.
It's not a bad film,but I have no interest in watching it again and suspect many will feel the same.
Or you could just be left staring at the screen in a bit of a trance.
