The truth lies within
While traveling across country with her fiancé, Beth wakes alone in an isolated clinic to a mother's worst nightmare. Just how far will she go to save her child?
This whole movie is just disturbing on so many levels, but I enjoyed every twist and turn. The ending will really make you sick and there may be times when you want to cry, but stick with it. It's worth the ride.
This film was actually pretty good! The storyline was what I really liked about it :) It was almost like a twist in the end when she got told who her current parents where, and what they did in the past for her ... I dont really want to give much away but this was a pretty juicy film! :D
While traveling across country with her fiancé, Beth wakes alone in an isolated clinic to a mother’s worst nightmare. Just how far will she go to save her child? The Clinic isn’t your typical thriller you expect to see. Coming out of Australia, I was actually pretty surprised to see Andy Whitfield (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) in this one considering his cancer battle. Even though his health isn’t the greatest, it doesn’t show at all in his performance. Going off the plot line, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this one, but knowing it wasn’t another Hollywood product, I figured it wouldn’t be that bad. Thankfully, I was right, for the most part.
I came into this one…
Es de esos thrillers que se te olvidan una hora después de haberlos visto, que creen que te está emocionando pero en realidad te aburren y le agregan un giro sin sentido al final como para sorprender pero no puedes con lo ilógico que es.
"Ontknopingen in films zijn wel vaker moeilijk te slikken, maar schrijver/regisseur James Rabbitts maakt het met zijn absurde complot wel erg bont. En dat terwijl het uitgangspunt, de handel in gestolen baby’s, nou juist zo invoelbaar is."
What a brilliant idea for a film but so poorly executed.
To say this film is moody is like saying Oliver Reed enjoyed a tipple
You have to take your hat off to the direction and the premise. What also helps with the story is not only where it is set but when. But then the delivery leaves alot to be desired.
I would say worth a watch if for nothing else than to make your own mind up and criticise my view on it.
Evolutions a bitch
This is worse than bad, it's dull. Utterly devoid of tension, horror, anything. Just dull, dull, dull
A mishmash of several genres, none of which gel well. An extremely strong premise wasted on a weak execution.
And here we have another interesting idea poorly executed. This Australian film takes some of the themes explored in The Hostel and Battle Royale series and combines them with beautiful maternal women, desperate to save their babies. The result is a (mildly) amusing plot in a poorly shot, poorly acted and poorly scripted mess.
