Film Review

Hard candy is a thriller staring Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson. Hard candy follows the story of a young 14 year old girl (Page) who gets to know this elder man (Wilson) over the internet. They decide to meet up and eventually go back to the mans apartment where things take a dramatic unpredictable turn.Before I watched the film I had no idea what it was about, I hadn't even seen the trailer, or read any other reviews.This was just as well, as by the end this film had me on the edge of my seat. This film is punchy, exciting and most important of all meaningful. The Director (David Slade) shoots the film in such a way that n by the end of the film your rooting for the 'bad guy', which almost makes you question your own conscious. The film is quite hard to watch at points, (without giving too much away) Ellen Page's character is a tad and she (suggestively) commits gruesome acts. This only adds to the strong story and even sparks some questions about the girl. Who is …

Despite the strong performances of the two protagonists this movie is completely unsavory and has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I mean how entertaining and dramatic is it to sit through an interminable castration scene? Not very! What is the point to this movie? Someone please tell me. Is it that no matter what side of the fence you are on, sexual abuse is bad? Ellen Page's character is completely unbelievable as many have noted here (does she ever shut up?). She is a 14 year old girl with the intellect of a super criminal and the physical strength of the Incredible Hulk, overpowering her adult male enemy several times during the film despite her age and double digit weight. How does she know to have her taser in hand at the ready in the ridiculous shower sequence? I could go on but I don't want to spend another word on this piece of garbage masquerading as a serious film other than to warn my fellow readers and lovers of the cinema to avoid this film at all cost!!

OK.. so here is the 576th review. Came across this gem of a movie yesterday, and watched it in 2 sittings i.e. (1) Before Jeff was tied up and (2) After he was tied up. LOL. Such ambiguous films often make me ponder as to why they are made at all. For profits? For a social message? For the director / producer's own voyeuristic leanings? Under illusions of grandeur? Or just for the heck of it? Anywaz.The lead character is a fresher version of Woody Harrelson, and the nymphet is like any other motor-mouth teenager, we come across these days. The film lacks a consistent sound-track and the dialogs between the 2, without break, can be mind-numbing. The film abounds in ambiguities, for example, Jeff had umpteen chances to run off from the crazy Ms Hayley, but he didn't. In the last scene, Jeff is lying on the roof, Hayley is bending over him closely, no gun in sight, and I was just waiting for Jeff to pack a punch on the chin of li'l Ms Crusader. Instead, he reaches across, …
