Critic Reviews for The Gift
The Gift is a tense, unsettling and expertly crafted psychological thriller that keeps the audience consistently on edge. [Full review in Japanese]
It's a concept that's more often the basis of arrested development comedies about late bloomers who finally come into their own, but there's nothing funny about how the past looms over the adults that Gordo and Simon have become.
Edgerton's talent as an actor has been evident for a while, but The Gift announces him as a genuine triple threat.
The Gift chillingly illustrates what happens when fate reunites a class bully (Jason Bateman) with his prize victim, Gordo (Edgerton).
Clever and atmospheric, the film has enough twists to keep the average viewer guessing.
Audience Reviews for The Gift
While you gotta appreciate this psychological thriller playing with expectations about how such stories usually play out, it missed to take a few punches early on. The film stays fairly entertaining and is overall well done, but before the surprisingly evil ending there just isn't all that much getting your blood pumping. It doesn't help that when you think about the title, the twist is already right there in front of you.
A highly enjoyable and creepy thriller. Certainly makes you question as to who is the real villain here! A uniquely and we'll executed plot.
The Gift is devious and calculating with a twist that's inconceivable. The film is able to garner up enough suspense and a thorough story to make for a surprisingly suspenseful tale of past, present and future. 4.5/5
