Synopsis:
On a suburban street, two masked men seize a young woman. They bind and gag her and take her to an abandoned, soundproofed apartment. She is Alice Creed, daughter of a millionaire. Her kidnappers, the coldly efficient Vic and his younger accomplice Danny, have worked out a meticulous plan. But Alice is not going to play the perfect victim - she's not giving in without a fight. In a tense power-play of greed, duplicity and survival we discover that sometimes disappearances can be deceptive.

Low budget but plenty to admire - The Disappearance of Alice Creed review by Rob S

Spoiler Alert
13/12/2010

This is a low budget UK film. There are only 3 members of the cast and the action takes place mostly in what appears to be a flat. The basic story is that of the kidnapping of a young woman planned to perfection to extort money from her rich father. The protagonists are two ex cons who, at the start of the film, we see thoroughly preparing the location where they will keep their hostage. Everything looks meticulous. Only once they have there hostage do things start to go wrong. I can't give too much away, but there is one major flaw that you will not expect. The story and script are pretty good and keep you guessing as to what will happen. The cast are all excellent especially Gemma Arterton in what must have been a difficult role. The film moves along quite quickly and doesn't drag. All in all if you don't mind a film without big hollywood stars and you like a bit of tension and twisty plot, then I would recommend this. Film 4/5, Blu-Ray Picture 3.5/5, sound 3.5/5

Excellent low budget thriller - The Disappearance of Alice Creed review by PV

Spoiler Alert
10/02/2011

Apart from an ending that feels tacked on - (the film should have ended 2 minutes before it did) - this film was excellent. Only three actors, no fancy locations - and no dialogue at all for the first 9 minutes. It's clearly emulating Pinter; it's also full of twists, and how much you like this will depend on whether you can suspend your disbelief here! But a highly enjoyable thriller nontheless. Recommended.

Spoiler Alert

An excellent British film. Has just 3 actors and limited scene settings but the end result is fantastic. Blew me away! A few twists and turns too.
