Customer Reviews

The acting was very good.
Danny
I stopped watching this movie after 30 minutes because the plot of it was just so illogical.

WARNING: SPOILERS.

I saw the trailer, and thought, "wow, how could they make a movie about being in an ATM scary, since it looks so easy for them to escape." I thought that the movie must be some well scripted mind game in which the bad guy plays with his victims to terrorize them and force them to choose the path he's laid out for them - so they stay in the ATM because they have no choice.

Uh, no. It's basically a movie about 3 incredibly stupid people who act just like stupid people would. And the killer has no plan. He just looks for ATM's that don't have good security camera coverage and then waits at night for someone to come by. Here is an example of something you think is about to reveal the mind game, and ramp up tension, but only serves to make you disconnect from the film given how unlike the you and the characters are (i.e., they are stupid):

The bad guy decides to walk around to the back of the ATM. You think he's about to unleash some pre-built trap from which the victims inside the ATM will have to think their way out of (or at least fight their way out of). The characters stand inside the ATM arguing about whether they should open the door to the ATM and run for it now that the bad guy can't see them (and he really can't). They can't make up their minds (they've already seen the bad guy kill a wandering homeless person in the parking lot, so they know they should run). So they just hang out inside the ATM, waiting for the mysterious man in the parka to come back. Oh, and what's the bad guy doing? Setting into motion some devious plan? Nope. He's around back of the ATM, and he cannot see the victims at all (can only hear their muffled voices a little), and he's just trying to jimmy the back door open and not succeeding.

"Why is he doing this?!!" After finally getting up the nerve to talk to the girl he likes David (Geraghty) is excited to be driving Emily (Eve) home. When his friend Corey (Peck) crashes his date and asks to stop at the ATM machine he is counting down the minutes till he can get Emily alone. After getting out the cash they turn around and notice a stranger starting at them. Their night takes a deadly turn. To start with this is not a bad movie at all. I like the movies like this where it takes an everyday activity and introduces terror into it. The big problem with this is that after a half hour it seemed to run out of ideas and kept repeating itself over and over. The one thing that really saved this and made it enjoyable was the end. This is not a typical "Hollywood" ending and that helped the movie a lot. If you liked "Devil" or "Phonebooth" then you will also like this one. This is worth a watch. Overall, a tense but also repetitive thriller that is worth watching. Ending is great & disturbing. I give it a B.

Although I am certain that some people will not like "ATM," I actually found it to be a relatively enjoyable little thriller. As a B-movie guilty pleasure, this slight film benefits from having modest ambitions. Thus, with its limited scope, I think it works satisfactorily as a pleasing and entertaining diversion. You want a big complicated plot? You need interesting back story? You want character motivation? Don't bother with any of that! "ATM" plays out as a simple, but extravagant, nightmare. Three young professionals visit an ATM booth in the middle of the night only to have that seemingly mundane decision irrevocably change their lives. A menacing figure watches them from afar. And as they contemplate what to do, his murderous intentions become quite clear. Who is he? Why has he targeted this trio? Again, the plot that holds "ATM" together is sketchy at best. You'll get the most enjoyment by not thinking about it, not analyzing the logic, just experiencing it. Normally, I might not have thrown aside intellectual reservations but I found the cast appealing and reasonably resourceful so, in this instance, I was willing to go along for the ride.

It helps immeasurably that the movie casts Brian Geraghty, Josh Peck, and Alice Eve in the principle roles. All are exceedingly likable, their chemistry is palpable, and their discourse is amusing. We meet the trio at an office Christmas party. Geraghty is secretly crushing on Eve and his chance to score some alone time with her is compromised when he has to give his intrusive friend (Peck) a ride home as well. They are soon on the road, bantering playfully. A last minute decision to score some cash (who doesn't love late night eats?) begins a hellish descent into surviving at all costs.

The set up of a horror or thriller, such as ATM, is probably one of the most important parts of the film. You can expect a chase, gore scenes, some monstrosity's, and if time permits, character development. So here we have two seemingly successful people working in finance who leave a party to bring home a good looking woman, who also works with them. One of the guys needs to stop at an ATM to get money for his late night munchies.

The film seems to be set in the city. New York City (or at least something like to NYC). But apparently the only ATM is on this remote street with no one around. Pulling up to the ATM, he parks, what seems like a half a block away. Why not just pull right up to it?? I don't know anyone that does this, especially at 1 in the morning. And so, between the car and the ATM hut stands the killer. And yes, they all forgot their cell phones in the car.

I just get infuriated how people find themselves in situations like this. It could be argued on the other side that what are the chances of some crazy guy looking to kill some people locked in an ATM hut. But err on the safe side when the chances are higher that strange people creep around at night in big cities. Ultimately, however, it just seems too convenient for the killer to get into place.

The film does not offer much other than high tension. As the other reviewers mentioned, the question of "why" is never answered. Clearly it is not supposed to. I am not sure if thats the question the film is offering either. I think its more stating that "it can be done". If we recall the opening credit sequence, we see maps and diagrams and coordinates. All of this for the killer as a challenge for technology.
