The Gift (2015) REVIEW
I’ll start by saying I really like the 3 main actors in the movie and think they give off good performances. This is a very different role for Bateman and one that I think he does well to play quite convincingly. His wife is brilliant and Joel Edgerton as Gordo the Weirdo is excellent. The slight issue with this movie is the premise is one very similar to that of many films and this movie doesn’t really tread that far into new territory. Also while the story and acting is good I don’t think the characters are built well enough for us to care that deeply about the outcome. The supposed bad guy isn’t bad enough and the good guys aren’t really good enough. There are some decent twists and turns but nothing jaw dropping. I did enjoy the film but as you can tell from my review I think it could have been so much more with a few changes to the script and a bit more suspense. However I do recommend you give it a try for yourself as the acting is great and it is still above average for a suspenseful thriller.
