The Girl 2014
1h 19min | Sci-Fi, Thriller | November 2014 (USA)
A kidnapped girl is rescued by a young boy, and in return is compelled to save him from the horrors that lie in his home.
For a class act like Michael Biehn… (The Terminator/Aliens) I was interested in this movie. Unfortunately, what let it down BIG time, was the intermittent music playing. There was no suspense building at all. Had the music been cut, it would have built a lot more suspense. The beginning intro music and end titles music was really way better.
Next,we have the dialogue and Script, which just seemed completely disjointed at best. I won’t give any spoiler alerts, however there are scenes between the young boy and the girl, that just looked like they were plain awkward, and, don’t make sense at all. You’ll actually see – and hear – Michael Biehn go on about this during the end credits, where they supposedly put in the outtakes for good effect.
I wished I had watched the end credits first, as, I would have gotten the CLEAR impression, that the Director didn’t really know what they were doing, and, that the actors themselves didn’t think the dialogue worked… which it didn’t.
All in all a completely forgettable movie, and, you really will not miss this at all, if you do not watch. I’ll be rating this only a 4 out of 4, just because some of the cast were in movies I really enjoyed!
