    I thought this movie was fantastic and I've got no problem admitting that It might be my new favourite Ridley Scott. Yes, even over Blade Runner.

    I like that this movie takes its time to show an event and allow you to conjure up your thoughts about it before adding some fresh perspectives to recontextualise it. Every layer this movie added after the fact still felt, in many ways, consistent with what came before and often this movie was able…

    This is a lot of what I want in a revenge thriller. Perfect pacing, brutality, constant building of stakes and some absolutely nail biting tension. There were a few minutes when I couldn't even breath thanks to the stress. Where some may argue that it is short on character and plot, I'd argue that this movie is just extremely efficient with the story it's telling. Also, in a lot of ways, it's a flip on what I'd normally expect from a traditional vengeance story so that is very refreshing.

    There isn't a horror movie as scary and upsetting as my life is right now but this tries and is actually a pretty decent movie. I was expecting a 2 hour jump scare fest but nope. It isn't quite that. It takes it's time to build a nice creepy atmosphere, sprinkles in some creepy looking shots and it unfolds an intriguing mystery. On top of that, Naomi Watts is great. It isn't special. Nothing you haven't seen before but it is a good watch. Not bad at all.
