Surprisingly good - The Gift review by BE

Spoiler Alert
16/02/2016

A gripping, insidious movie that builds tension throughout. It would be good to have a sequel to see if past sins can be atoned for. Only thing, why did Joel Edgerton have to sport such a bad 'syrup' and why wear a wig at all?!

Excellent taut + gripping thriller about bullying and power - The Gift review by PV

Spoiler Alert
20/02/2016

This is a gripping thriller, superior to the usual Hollywood fare.

OK, so it starts with a coincidence and the bullying pity party is laid on a bit too think really, as is the wife's 'issues'. Also, a subplot with a competitor for a job does not really wash, and I kept on asking myself why the characters didn't do this or that to address the issue.

Anyhoo...this is a really watchable thriller that'll make you jump.

Like the best thrillers, it preys one of our greatest fears: that we never really know anyone - not really.

A genuinely surprising and brave ending too (though no doubt feminists will be outraged).

4/5 stars.

The Gift - The Gift review by porky

Spoiler Alert
01/07/2018

Hadnt realised I had already seen this Movie on TV .

I didnt know the title of the film I saw at the time catching it half way through.But it is a very Good Thriller in the same kind of mold as Fatal Attraction,Single White Female or any other 'Stranger gets to know you to Fu@k your life up' kind of film.

Slow moving but unusual in that the Stalker / Baddie is giving very welcome and useful Gifts but all the time undermining the lives of a young couple in a new home.

Well worth a watch or even several .
