The Gift (2015) – Movie Review

Movie Review –

The Gift is a nicely put together “dark thriller”, really closely styled like the film Disconnect. The cast within The Gift done very well with their characters which helped to keep the eerie vibe going on. I liked the way the story moved, it keeps you always wondering, thinking you know what’s up, though all you think turns out to be different. The Gift is a fairly made film for it’s genre; and it is also a film in which I will have in my personal movie collection.

If you like drama, thrillers; then this one could be right up your alley. Jason Bateman pulls off yet another eerie film which keeps you on the edge of your seat. Comparative films within the style I’d have to point out “Edge of Darkness”, of course “Disconnect”, and quite possibly “Knock Knock”; just few others you may enjoy.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4 stars
