Trance Blu-ray DVD Review

After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), a fine-art auctioneer, awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. Forced by his ruthless crime partner Franck (Vincent Cassel, Black Swan) to undergo hypnosis, Simon enters into a deadly love triangle with his seductive hypnotist (Rosario Dawson, Sin City). As the plot twists, the line between reality and dream becomes blurred in this fast-paced, unpredictable, “sexy and suspenseful” (Empire) thriller.

Trance was a little boring at first then got suspenseful and then took a dive. There is action and thriller but not enough of it, in my opinion. In the trailer it looks like it would be a movie that would keep you on your toes but to me it failed at that.

If you're wanting to watch this film for a good story, and movement don't bother. It's a mess. Overwritten in some parts we didn't care too much about, underwritten in the parts I did care about and wanted to know more. It all came together at the end but we weren't impressed. The actors played good roles but they didn't do a good job on the story line, it could have been better.

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Trance on blu-ray at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
