Stagey drama - The Vanishing review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert

Pared-down stagey drama about three Scottish lighthouse keepers who vanish. It’s apparently based on a true story, but the truth could never have been as ridiculous as this. If you believe the DVD blurb that it’s an “action-packed drama”, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. You’ll see the way it’s going long before the end. Do you think there’ll be some squabbling in such an enclosed space? To be fair, there’s a major incident half-way through when things get interesting for a while, but then it’s back to being a dull, claustrophobic chamber piece, better suited to the stage than the cinema screen.

On the DVD Extras the Danish cinemaphotographer even says that it’s the confined staginess of the piece that attracted him to it – more lighting options to challenge him. As for the Danish director, he was attracted by the Scandi-noir aspect of it. If that’s what you like, fine. If it’s visual flair you’re looking for, look elsewhere. For the most part, this is dull fare.

Very disappointing - The Vanishing review by DW

Spoiler Alert

Had good expectations given Gerard Butler in the film but the film is slow and disappointing.

Long boring scenes that could have benefited in some cases from subtitles as I could not understand the strong dialog.

Hard to believe that this could be a true story with abrupt ending so no idea eventual outcome.

Cannot understand why Gerard Butler would have considered a role in this film.

Not a barrel of laughs - The Vanishing review by JT

Spoiler Alert

I can't remember when I last saw a film that left me feeling so depressed. The characters all seemed to have some kind of mental problem which displayed it'self quite early, with a lot of the action taking place at night so difficult to see what was happening. Which was probably just as well. Very disappointing .
