Editorial Reviews

Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning keep pulses pounding and hearts racing in this chilling horror hit about a troubled father and daughter tormented by someone – or something – named Charlie, a malevolent entity who may or may not be "imaginary" but is definitely the stuff nightmares are made of!

3.0 out of 5 stars FATHER KNOWS BEST... July 28, 2005
Let me cut to the chase. This film did not, at all, meet my expectations. The trailers lead one to believe that it is a film with supernatural overtones, but it turns out to be something else all together. The story line seems simple on its face. Alison Callaway (Amy Irving), a wife and loving mother, unexpectedly decides to slit her wrist in the bathtub one night, killing herself. Her husband, psychologist David Callaway, comes upon her lifeless body, and so does their beloved daughter, Emily (Dakota Fanning). Emily goes into shock and comes under the care of a therapist named Katherine (Famke Janssen).

Sometime later, when Emily's condition seemingly improves, her father then decides to leave New York City, where they live, and relocate to a small upstate town. No sooner do they move there, they meet the real estate agent and the town's sheriff, both of whom seem a tad peculiar. Moreover, there appears to be something not quite right with the couple next door, especially the husband. When Emily starts talking about an ostensibly imaginary friend named Charlie, the viewer knows that something is afoot. When David develops a new friend of his own, Elizabeth (Elizabeth Shue), trouble lies ahead, as Emily exhibits bizarre behavior towards her, as well as towards Elizabeth's young niece who is trying to befriend her.

As Charlie appears to be becoming an ever present and ominous entity in their lives, and Emily's odd behavior continues unabated, David remains the most kind, concerned, and understanding of fathers. He contacts Emily's therapist Katherine, who is very concerned about the eccentric behavior Emily is exhibiting. Meanwhile, the male neighbor interjects himself into the picture in a seemingly ominous way.

It's important for a director to immediately establish a level of trust with his/her audience. We need to believe that we are in capable hands that will introduce us to characters and situations that make perfect sense, and that events will follow one another with unyielding logic.

At first, I felt that a decision made early in the film was a decision that was outside the "trust" I described above. Toward the end of the film, I realized that the decision was OK - even though I thought it was a bad idea on the filmmaker's part to make that particular decision. I wish that the screenwriters had worked harder to come up with a different way to get from point A to point B. The problem with the "real" decision was that I lost faith in the director/story almost immediately because it appeared - at the time - to be utterly ridiculous.

There was a scene where a cat came jumping out of a closet for shock value, and my lord, I can't count the number of times where that tired old trick has been used. Whenever that happens, I immediately think that someone's being lazy and can't come up with a better way to give the audience a quick scare. Besides - it's quite awful to leave a cat locked up in a closet because they tend to start using it as their bathroom, and you just can't get cat pee out of *anything*.

As the movie progressed, it began to move in a fairly reasonable logic flow, and I started to gain trust in the director/story again, even though there were some unnecessary characters and scenes.

Dakota Fanning (Emily), is an amazing actress whose ability to portray a wide range of emotions that many actors and actresses with years more training and experience would give their left foot for, is the perfect character for the part.

1.0 out of 5 stars There Are No Words... October 18, 2005
There are no words sufficient enough to describe how truly terrifying this movie is.


Not in a good way...

I would have maybe given this film two stars, that is until the ending arrived. One of the hands down worst endings in the history of the movies. I am not kidding. If you have an IQ over the line of mental retardation, you will want to kill yourself after seeing John Polson's excuse for a climax. Surprise ending? You bet your ass it's surprising. As surprising as a last minute root canal.

What has happened to Robert De Niro? Showtime? Analyze That? And now Hide And Seek? Dakota Fanning, I can understand. She will bounce back. But De Niro? He has jumped the shark so far that there's no turning back now. He might as well star in Basic Instinct 2 and call it a day. Someone is controlling his mind, I know it...

Bottom Line: Please, for the love of all that is holy, do not see this movie if you truly value your free time. I have sacrificed myself so that you may not suffer as I did. You have been warned...

A recently widowed doctor Robert DeNiro leaves the city with his only daughter Dakota Fanning. They start to live a new life in quiet countryside, a deserted summer place this time, and he comes to realize that his move might be a mistake. If you find any originality in this story, 'Hide and Seek' is your film. If I sound a little sarcastic, I say I'm sorry, but so many thrillers seek their background in this kind of land of nowhere that I started to feel like yelling 'Not again.' Oh, and the title! This unoriginal title should not be confused with another 'Hide and Seek' made only 6 years ago. At least they should have done something to that.

But DeNiro's 'Hide and Seek' is not without entertainment value. Though the film's main body is made from parts from other thrillers, it starts mildly interesting. DeNiro plays Dr. David Callaway, who lost his wife Alison (Amy Irving) in a terrible situation, and their only daughter Lucy (Fanning), witnessing the scene, is traumatized by the shock. They leave the city, and begin to live quietly in the countryside (which is conviniently only one hour's drive away from the city where Lucy's doctor Famke Jansen lives).

But you know, Lucy starts to act weirdly, talking about her imaginary frined named Charlie. She insists Charlie often comes to their house, and does a wicked thing or two. The tricks Charlie (or whatever) does on them get worse as the story goes on, and finally Lucy herself is out of control. Well, it seems so at first.

Like M. Night Shyamalan thrillers, 'Hide and Seek' tries to be atomospheric, and at times it succeeds. See, for example, who plays the local sheriff jingling the bundle of keys, who might be a bit too officious.
