Product Description

Mary Walsh delivers boyfriend Kevin to a hospital for routine outpatient surgery. But when Mary returns to take him home, he's mysteriously vanished. An administrator can find no record of him, and a police search turns up nothing. Increasingly frantic, Mary's taken to staff psychiatrist Dr. Bensley, who pronounces her unstable. Now she must not only find her missing boyfriend, but prove her own sanity as well. When a stranger informs her he knows Kevin's whereabouts and demands a $10 billion ransom, she has one hour to comply and her boyfriend's life hangs in the balance. Forced to embezzle the money from the bank where she works, Mary soon discovers the shocking truth behind the disappearance. Now time is running out and she must take matters into her own hands to save herself.

Though at times an agreeable thriller, Abandoned will sadly gain notoriety as the final film credit for its lead, actress Brittany Murphy, who died prior to its home video release, though this unfortunate circumstance may lead some viewers to seek out the film. What they'll find is an unremarkable bit of suspense involving Murphy's search for her boyfriend (Dean Cain), who appears to vanish from the face of the earth after checking into a hospital for routine knee surgery. Old pros Mimi Rogers and Peter Bogdanovich pull out the stops to suggest that Murphy is delusional, while detective Jay Pickett (a veteran of director Michael Feifer's lengthy string of low-budget serial killer biopics) and cult favorite Tim Thomerson offer support; the result has its moments, most notably in a chase through the bowels of the hospital, but never rises above the level of made-for-TV or direct-to-video movie. Murphy is fine, though the role is fairly glum and keeps her from displaying her trademark sparkle; completists who wish to see her entire CV are most likely to be the film's core audience. The DVD includes the original trailer. --Paul Gaita

Imagine waking up and taking your boyfriend to the hospital for a routine procedure, only to find out that an hour later he turns up missing. Not in the computer system, not on the grid at all. Pretty devastating, wouldn't it be?

The final movie filmed by the late Brittany Murphy, Abandoned, comes packed with quite the punch. From one twist to another, we chase after Mary who's being chased by hospital administration- to name a few, who think she's lost her mind. She's leading to believe that her boyfriend Kevin, Dean Cain, has gone missing and not a single employee believes her. When Detective Franklin, Jay Pickett, steps in to investigate he finds more than he bargained for. After a day of thinking this super blond psycho fits the bill, he gives up his efforts to help her only to later find the answers to solve the puzzle.

This bone tingling suspense thriller will put viewers at the edge of their seats, chomping at finger nails and picking at those loose fibers on the cushions in the couch! Miss Murphy will be greatly missed, however this movie is sure to go down in the history of Cinema for the excellence in its dramatic prose.

Rest In Peace, Brittany. This movie serves her fans some closure, if you will, and shall be included as part of her wonderful Filmography

When a celebrity passes away it seems we focus on the good that the person did while on Earth and not the bad. A noble thought and one that should be so, but when the case in point is an actor, we then have to deal with the work they left behind, the final films that were yet to be released. Such is the case with ABANDONED and actress Brittany Murphy who was found dead last year. Already completed, the film has just been released on DVD with little or no promotion. Perhaps that's for the best as the film offers nothing new to the thriller genre and a performance that seems phoned in rather than well done by the late Ms. Murphy.

Murphy stars as Mary, a young bank executive on the way to the hospital with her new boyfriend Kevin (Dean Cain) who is due for orthopedic surgery. The hospital is in the process of closing and moving to a new location, but this outpatient surgery shouldn't take more than an hour or so. At least that's what the nurse who takes Kevin's forms tells Mary as she heads to the lounge to wait.

While waiting she meets a nice older man named Cooper (Tim Thomerson) and they talk about his wife and her chemo as well as the hospital. He gives her a few words of reassurance and moves on. After a few hours, Mary heads upstairs concerned that she hasn't had word on Kevin. To her surprise, the nurses on that floor inform her that there according to the computers Kevin is not a patient in the hospital.

After doing a search of the facility on her own while observed by security, Mary is directed to the head of the hospital Mrs. Markham (Mimi Rogers) who gets security to run the tapes of the cameras throughout the hospital for Mary. The only inkling of Kevin walking in is a shoulder shot that could or could not be him.

Ok so I read the reviews and thought this was going to be a pretty bad and disappointing movie. I ordered it anyway since it was Brittany Murphy's last film she made before passing away. From the beginning to the end, I could not believe that what I was watching was the same movie I read such disappointing reviews about.

I read it was predictable. No it's not. Of course it has it's "AHA" moments later on. And sure you might decide someone's a shady character or something's off about them from the beginning, but you still don't know why. That's true and should be true in every movie. That's how things are put together as to why everything we've seen to that point has happened. That's much different than being predictable. Brittany's acting was perfect for the role and character she was playing. People have said it's not the Brittany we've seen in other movies. Acting depends on what the movie's about and the person becoming that character for the situation at hand. She does that perfectly.

I read so many ppl focusing on her clothing.. such as since she's a business woman, she sure isn't dressed like one which takes away from her character. I don't know about you, but when I have a day off, you're going to see me dressed very casually. She's not playing a woman at work so why would she be dressed for it. It's kinda like seeing some helpless woman running around in the woods with some crazy man chasing her while she has heels on. That's laughable because it doesn't fit. Her character in a business outfit wouldn't fit because the business part of her life is what she does.. it's not a reflection of the character she's playing in this particular situation.

With all that said, the premise of the movie is boyfriend and girlfriend Mary (Murphy) and Kevin (Dean Cain).

It may not be a recent release, but "ABANDONED" is still a movie that should not be missed. Mary and Kevin are in the throes of new love until a routine hospital visit goes terribly awry. By the time Mary has returned from parking the car, her boyfriend Kevin is awaiting simple outpatient surgery in his room. A less than polite pre-op nurse enters and sends Mary off to the waiting room where she sits for hours. Mary decides to go and check on Kevin who should've been released hours earlier. But now hospital personnel are saying he never checked in, and that the section Mary is referring to is closed. She continues to demand answers, and hospital officials assert that her boyfriend is a figment of her imagination and attempt to place her under psychiatric care.

This thriller is constant suspense as Mary runs for her life through the bowels of the nearly deserted hospital, surveillance cameras tracking her every move. One plot twist after another until the viewer wonders what - if anything - is really real.

"Abandoned" is worthy of top ratings, on its own merit, not because it was Brittney Murphy's last. In particular, talented actor Dean Cain, who can play sweet boyfriend or killer husband, once again delivers a prime performance. Writers regaled in throwing viewers for a loop over and again. Super suspense and a production made even more excellent by its lack of any offensive material. One time viewing will not be enough.
