The Vanished – Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – A normal camping trip turns disastrous when Paul and Wendy’s daughter Taylor goes missing. Distraught, the couple takes matters into their hands when the police come up with no leads. An accident in the woods turn the couple against each other, one wanting to tell the truth and one denying the truth. Then, the couple quickly accuse the young couple in the camper next door, and invite them to search the lake together. However, the questioning between the couples takes a deadly turn, and it seems Paul and Wendy cannot find any leads to finding their daughter. This movie is filled with one tragic event after another, and nothing seems to lead to Taylor. And the end will leave you questioning the entire film, as the unlikely twist is revealed. One of the more entertaining and mysterious movies I’ve seen in a long time! This scores a 8.5 out of 10.
Acting – Anne Heche shines in this film as Wendy. Her character goes through every emotion possibly, and Anne portrays that with comfort and ease. And Thomas Jane as Paul is a welcomed surprise. It goes to show with good content and writing, any actor can prove why they are in this business. The sheriff who leads the investigation is Jason Patric, and it’s no shock that he also does a great job. These three seasoned actors make an extremely good team, they all seemed to bring out the best acting in each other. Score is 9 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 55 min. There is a lot going on in this film, and right up until the end it keeps you guessing. While it’s almost two hours, you need almost every bit of content to arrive at the twist. So I think the length is fitting for the movie. This gets a 8.5 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for The Vanished – 26 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Absolutely a great watch. This movie was written thoughtfully with a great twist and I think everyone would enjoy the content and good acting. AND – definitely let me know if you get the twist before the end, cause I sure didn’t!!!
