Review :

Much better than I expected.......

and I'll agree with the commenter from Germany....the ending knocks it out of the park.

To be honest, I knew I was going to enjoy this movie because I really like Sam Page. The fact that he played the lead character in this movie assured me that it was well worth the cost of buying this movie and having it shipped from Germany. Beyond that, my expectations were very low. I am honestly surprised by how good this movie actually was.

IN my opinion, one of the biggest problems that most producers face when they are making a thriller is maintaining relevance and realism while telling a truly frightening story. WIsh You Were Here did that as well as any movie I've seen recently.

THe events in the story bore some striking similarities to a recent, highly publicized, news story in the US. That probably made the story more believable and more horrifying to me. I was honestly scared by some of the things that I saw in this movie. Scared by the fact that I felt like this was probably a realistic depiction of how something like this might be if it really happened, and scared by the thought that something similar probably has happened before and probably will happen again.

The movie was very well paced. There was very little padding. There were some scenes in the middle of the movie that seemed out of place but when I saw the ending I understood their purpose.

As it happens in every film, some of the actors were better than some of the others but every actor performed adequately. Sam was great. The actor who played the father also did a very, very good job with his role. THey were the stand-outs for me.

THe biggest drawback to the film was the lack of characterization. Sam's character David was really the only multi-dimensional character in the film. There was some insight into the character of the father toward the end of the movie but the other characters were totally one-dimensional. That is probably as it should have been, since David was telling the story, but my personal preference would have been for a little more character definition, at least for Georgie(the girlfriend) and for the Russian Arab.

Technically, as mentioned in one of the other commentaries , there were some great scenery shots. I really don't think any of this movie was shot in a studio. IT all seemed to be on location. The direction was above average especially in the manner that the different camera angles were used to add to the intensity of the story. At times I felt like the "background" music was almost too loud. In one of the scenes I actually had to reverse because I missed a few lines of dialog but again, it was almost as if this played into the steadily building intensity of the story . Throughout the movie I was wondering how this was all actually going to end. I have to say that I was surprised by the ending. I really wasn't sure how it would conclude but of the several different scenarios I had imagined the one that played on the screen did not resemble anything I had expected.

Altogether, obviously I enjoyed this movie. But, as I said in the beginning, that was a given just because of the lead actor. What I found truly remarkable about this film was the way that a combination of relevant story, good acting, and some inspired directing took what was almost certainly a low budget film and made it into a really entertaining, thought provoking movie. I'll continue to watch anything that Sam Page appears in but I think in the future I'm going to be looking for films done by the director of this movie. He truly deserves a well-done.
