The Guilty

The Guilty ★★★

These 3 stars are all for my big boy Jake that gives an exceptional performance here.
On the other hand, the movie is... ok. I'm pretty sure if I hadn't watched the original danish movie I would have been able to enjoy this one more.
Unfortunately, they don't do anything new with the screenplay, with some dialogues even being the same. The little changes they made don't help the story and they just seem pointless.
One thing I particularly didn't like was the directing. What made me really appreciate the original was that it seemed like you were really watching an hour and a half in the life of the protagonist, here there are some cuts that broke the illusion and as a result, it is not as suspenseful as it should be.
If the plot of The Guilty interests you, I would advise you to go watch the original. This one is more for big Jake Gyllenhaal fans.
