Here I was, expecting some kind of slasher, horror or thriller movie (or maybe a combination of them all). Instead I got mind ***ked not just once, but twice.
This movie is not about someone mysterious trying to capture kids just to murder them for their pleasure.
It is about a group of people (not just Mr. and Mrs. Dennings) who lost faith in society and think that taking away children from their parents and giving them to rich people is the answer to problems the kids might not even see they have. Thinking about this movie has my mind question what I think of it, constantly. Is the ending in the movie bad? Maybe. No. Yes. No. I actually start wondering if the people making the movie are making a statement saying "it is better to be rich than to be poor" or that this is exactky the kind of statement they are critizing.
My problem with this movie is that it doesn't go deep enough. It cuts you a little, making you bleed mentally. But it doesn't get me anrgy or upset enough. I think this is because the way the statement is made, it is made quite safe. Although for once our hero isn't really a hero and defenitely is not going for a happy end. Emotionally you can question the so-called happy end of Jenny... She is supposed to be happy, but isn't completely.
All-in-all an interesting and good movie. Not such a bad movie some people here blame it to be.
