Can't please everyone

No film is made for everyone, even the greatest film like Titanic, it has 24,557 voters gave it "1". Really? Seriously? So the good film doesn't have to please everyone, but you've got to stick to a few things: A good premise, for example, it would draw people's attention in the first place. This film's premise is about the will reading lagging for 10 years with the condition of the daughter gone missing. Pretty good, huh? But there are a lot of films with a good premise, so I wouldn't be so fancy for it, rather give it 7 and continue my journey... Usually writing a good suspense movie is hard, you need a lot of planning because it builds the case upon the information given in the early time. In this film, such as Nadia's memory loss, the party photos used to solve the murder, checking necklace authenticity to verify the horrific truth... there are stuff implanted precisely but really depend on your own perception, if you're a good mind-hunter and paying attention for details, then you would find it more appreciated, otherwise it's a waste because everything planted is just subtle. But I like it being subtle. So I think it deserves 9. People might agree with me that the ending can either lift you up or smash you down. I understand that the climax and the ending should be separated because some film may have a super climax but fails flat at the end. But I think this film has done reasonably well because the surprises and puzzles are finally tied together as a whole for a solid resolution, so it's worth 9 in my opinion. For the rest of it, such as casting/performance, camera/lighting/sets, editing/sound/music, they are all fair enough even though there are some roughness along the way, nevertheless considering this kind of budget, I would be happy to make it average in 8. Hope you enjoy the film like I did.

Get a life or watch the goddam film

Just found two identical bad reviews (as low as 1). Are those 2 reviews from same person??? The comments written in these 2 reviews has nothing more than an attack. Whoever is this, please - you can't treat a film like a personal matter if you hate someone there. Film is a team effort. So listen up, people! Please skip those reviews and don't let this negative energy lock you down. You deserve better - Go get a life or watch the goddam film. You don't have to like this film but write something significant. This film has a lot of awards and got to have something than "nothing". I think it's a great film, specially the storyline is super intelligent. But I found some repetitive information in the early half of the film, I would prefer to cut the film 8-10 minutes shorter. I think this film has huge potential so I would be happy to see a big studio to remake with super stars. Must be a hit.

A box of chocolates

Brew slow but jaw-dropping with an unexpected climax as you really get the moment of "Oh my!" While the movie with the characters is ultimately driven by greed, dangerously played between life and death, there is an intense atmosphere of dread and stress throughout, sown wonders of how the tragedy can really last so long, of all resulted in a terrifying conclusion. The final twist in the last act is "like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get" (Forrest Gump). But the story does not intentionally offer the ferocity alone, but more to a package designed to stir the senses through a powerful storyline along with beautiful sentimental musical score that would make you feel nothing but a heartwarming experience. Technical works including performance are well integrated. Time will tell - this movie is going to be one of the best!
