"The Entitled" - {Blu-ray}
Reviewer:
Samantha Isler
Studio: Anchor Bay
Genre:
Drama
Release Date:
September 6 2011
Special Features:

Alternate ending; Behind the Scenes

Review:

Paul (Kevin Zegers) has spent his life at the bottom of the food chain, fighting to pull his family out of poverty. He and his friends Dean (Devon Bostick) and Jenna (Tatiana Maslany) plan to hold some rich kids for ransom, but the perfect plan splinters and Paul is soon struggling against many unexpected complications.***

Though a decent thriller, the film requires you to forget logic at times--Paul mentions how easily the police will probably find him through offshore accounts, and it makes the entire plan seem futile. But the movie isn't very in to long-term planning, and if you forget about the actual logistics, the short-term plan is pretty enjoyable. Overall, the plot and character development could use work, but the cast performances do make up for the losses. Particularly of note are Ray Liotta, who plays one of the kidnapped children's fathers, Devon Bostick as Paul's troubled and violent co-conspirator, and Zegers as the troubled anti-hero.***

Image and Sound:

The video quality isn't bad, but it isn't fantastic either. Every once in a while a nice, defined shot shows up, but for the most part the movie contains a lot of soft edges, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of detail in the picture--textures and shadows go unnoticed. Same goes for sound. Dialogue is natural and very effective, but sound effects and scenery add little dimension.***

Special Features:

The Blu-ray special features include a four-minute alternate ending and an 11-minute behind the scenes featurette based on interviews with the cast and crew.***

Final Words:

A mediocre movie that is redeemed by its actors, "The Entitled" nevertheless has its moments.
