BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
I accidentally watched two Idris Elba films over one weekend, I say accidentally because the first one I knew he was in, the second I did not. The second was One Good Deed, this was the first one and the actually, much better one. 'A successful asset manager, who has just received a huge promotion, is blissfully happy in his career and in his marriage. But when a temp worker starts stalking him, all the things he's worked so hard for are placed in jeopardy.' This film is actually quite good, I was surprised if I am honest. And before you say, I know this isn't technically a horror film, but I am on a roll and this was one of the last films I watched... and Idris Elba, so...
Obsessed is a good film, the cast is promising to look at first off, the story is good and it keeps you guessing as you watch it. My dad caught some of it and even he was into it at some points and was surprised at where the story went. He didn't even see it coming at one point. You watch this expecting some type of Fatal Attraction affair, but nope, it's the opposite and just a very very crazy lady. Bravo, that makes for some entertaining viewing.
As I mentioned before, the cast is pretty on point, Idris Elba is married to Beyonce and Ali Larter is the obsessed bit on the side, can't really go wrong. The only thing I have to say, and it's not a bad thing at all, is everytime Beyonce spoke, I had flashbacks to Austin Powers: Goldmember. Anyone else think of her still as Foxy Cleopatra? Anyone else remember that brilliant film that was Goldmember? Wasn't that class? I fancy watching that now.. damn. That was such a good movie... Obsessed is not as good as that film, but still good.
Obsessed is not that bad a film in anyway, the cast is good, the story is good, only bad thing is the ending. The ending was not good. It's just an ending, it just sort of ends, kind of like the people making it just needed an ending and had no other ideas than giving it the most cliche and boring ending ever. But hey, unlike some, the ending doesn't ruin the film, the film holds up and is actually an entertaining watch. Why am I not married to Idris Elba though?
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
