A thief stumbles upon a woman being held captive in one of the houses he was robbing. Does he try to save her by telling someone despite the fact it might lead to his arrest? The plot reminds me of a story I read years ago about a man who found child pornography while robbing someone’s home.
If you are expecting a lot of psychological and philosophical debate about the morals of admitting a crime to help someone else you won’t see much of that here. It does have some of that in it, but it is mainly a thriller about the conflict between the thief and the bad guy. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a good movie. It just isn’t exactly what I was expecting.
David Tennant plays the villain very well and is downright disturbing at times. The rest of the cast is good here as well. Carlito Olivero plays the friend and while he overacted a bit, he fit the role of best friend well. Kerry Condon as the captive was great. She seemed genuinely terrified when needed and bold when it was called for.
There are more than a few jump scares here, and though I virtually never get caught by a jump scare two got me a bit here. One of them I damn near fell out of my seat. It was pretty hilarious and luckily it got my wife too or I would never live it down. This isn’t Cape Fear mind you, but it was entertaining. I wish they would have cut out the last 30 seconds though.
