The X-Files' Gillian Anderson gives an impressive performance as a woman obsessed by revenge in this sleek and chilly English thriller by documentary filmmaker Dan Reed. Anderson is top-billed as a Brit businesswoman who invites the rough-hewn tech (Danny Dyer) who's installing her security system to a business party in the country. Slow-boiling sexual tension between the two to an erotic encounter in the woods – which is soon undercut by a savage attack by a group of local hunters, who rape Anderson and beat Dyer senseless. As they recover, viewers soon learn that the pair's trauma runs deeper than just the physical level – Dyer is emotionally shattered, and Anderson is gripped by a need to repay her attackers with violence more terrible than what they visited upon her. Though the plot occasionally veers into implausible territory, the couple's search for the guilty party – and the gruesome fate they have in store for them – is unnerving, and made all the more so by Anderson intense turn, which presents a torrent of conflicting emotions raging just below her cool, porcelain surface. - Paul Gaita

Product Description

Gillian Anderson stars in this dark thriller about a couple that embarks on a violent spree after surviving a gang attack. Driving back from a posh party at a country estate, Alice (Anderson) and Adam (Danny Dyer) find themselves brutally assaulted by a group of hunters. Physically and emotionally devastated by the attack, the tables suddenly turn when they discover the identity of their attackers. This time, it's their turn to exact the ultimate revenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed.....but definitely better than two stars December 29, 2007
Format:DVD
I disagree with the opinions of many of the reviewers of this movie; it is better than their two-star rating would imply. Yes, there are weaknesses: background on the characters, particularly the character played by Gillian Anderson and the two most agressive attackers, was sorely lacking. The ability to travel miles through the forest on foot in mere seconds stretched credibility, and personality reversals seemed to occur frequently and with indistinct motivation. Was the daughter actually being molested by her father's associates, or was it merely a possibility? What's up with the abrupt ending? etc...etc...

Despite the shortcomings, many scenes and situations were quite engaging. Anderson's character radiated an intense sexuality and her casual seduction of the security system tech was quite credible. I doubt that the "relationship" would have lasted long without the brutal interlude on their way home from the party, but once forced together by their shared horror and injury, the increasing pathology of their relationship becomes riveting. The gender reversal is a nice touch: she becomes stronger, dominant, and more bent on revenge; he shies away from violence, weak, damaged, and literally impotent.

Eventually, this reversal is reversed, albeit without full justification in my opinion. Her desire for revenge is quickly sated, far short of what was originally planned, while his accelerates dramatically. Another paradox is presented by the rapist/father: he claims to have only raped the Anderson character to distract his cronies from raping his daughter, but he did so with a level of brutality that does not seem consistent with a "fatherly" figure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, disturbing and thought-provoking April 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Gillian Anderson is becoming more beautiful and interesting as she gets older. The round-faced freshess of her X-Files days is gone, replaced by a sleek steeliness. And in this film she's 180-degrees different from her X-Files character, and for us that's a very good thing, because we see a performance that's tough--aggressive, even--unnerving (and that's even before she and her date are viciously attacked), and yet still vulnerable. Much is communicated through facial expressions and body language, not dialog. Danny Dyer's Adam is a perfect foil to her toughness, being basically a big kid at 23 with a low-paying job and a general innocence and decency that he holds onto through most of the film. The circumstances presented in the film are really just opportunities to explore the characters, as they both deal with the aftermath of brutality in different ways, shifting toward and away from each other, phasing between power and powerlessness, outrage and fear, conscience and brutality--sometimes all within the same scene. In this film what's gripping is less the plot (although there are a couple of nice twists at the end) than the character study of two people whose already-empty lives literally implode and the choices they make in the aftermath. Every moment Anderson and Dyer are on screen is riveting. I stayed up way too late watching this movie because I had to see how their emotional drama played out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Bizarre but Entertaining October 6, 2007
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Gillian Anderson has gone so underground after leaving the series The X-Files,when she does appear in a movie,it ends up being like a surprise.
The last movie she co-starred in was The Last King Of Scotland even if it was small part it was good to see that she is still acting.

Closure which probably opened in the UK but went straight to DVD in the states isn't a bad movie.It's brutal,sexual,masturbation,violent rape scene (not as much as the cult classic "I Spit On Your Grave")and focuses on one woman's quest for revenge and her male (boy toy) going from a scared weakling and finding himself.

This movie is borderline X-rated,so it's not a family movie or even along the lines of Death Wish or The Brave One.It's very sadistic,you don't get to bond with the characters and I don't think you would want to.

The ending will sure enough be a big surprise.

If you looking for a Death Wish than this in NOT the movie for you,better movie in this catergory is "I Spit On You're Grave".Brutal but you understood why the character did what she had to do.

With this movie you kind of wish they had called the authorities and made more like Jodie Foster's "The Accused".

If you're a Gillian Anderson fan it's a watch but not if you are looking for the innocent Gillian Anderson than skip it,her character will make you throw up.The last time she did a movie with a tad of nudity was her first movie "The Turning".This is a 360 degree turn compared to that one.Which will make you either cringe or say,it's about time she starts taking roles of characters that are not like Agent Scully or sane.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where the violence comes from September 21, 2007
By Jean
Format:DVD
Great directing by Dan Reed, well known for his award winning documentary movies.
In "Closure", he is building up a thriller from an everyday 'regular' situation. Familiar urban environments quickly become grey and monotonous in an unsettling way, people gatherings also transformed: for example, the party scene looks like it is turning into a party of shadows. Equally unsettling is the depiction of muddy and drizzly countryside (the photography is outstanding). The sounds - whistling wind, rustling leaves, characters barely talking, mostly breathing heavily and moaning or yelling and screaming. All characters (both 'good' and 'bad') are alienated from each other, they meet and interact because they happen to be in the same, mostly wrong, places. All are emotionally empty, except for the rage and desperation which give them some short-lived intentionality and purpose. Very good Anderson and Dyer.
There is no closure after watching "Closure". The movie could have been longer than 80 minutes to allow the (very talented) director some space to better develop some of the characters. After watching it last night I was under the immediate impression of the violence depicted, but later on I was even more struck by desolation, sadness and loneliness of the characters' condition.
This is not the movie to relax, but the movie that will make you think.
