Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In sleepy Del Rio, near the border between Texas and Mexico, strange things are afoot. In the scene-setting prologue, writer/director Dror Soref’s supernatural-tinged mystery-thriller offers a glimpse of black magic and brutal murder before introducing Jack Bishop (The Mentalist’s Simon Baker), a widowed loan officer, his beautiful Mexican-American wife, Amaya (Paz Vega, Sex and Lucia), and his rebellious 12-year-old daughter, Toby (Chloe Moretz, who previously appeared with Baker on The Guardian). After Toby disappears during soccer practice, the tight-knit townspeople come together to track her down. While the cops, including Amaya’s cousin Casper Navarro (Michael DeLorenzo) and Detective Sanchez (The Shield’s Benito Martinez), pursue leads, the media reports on the growing Santa Muerte sect (a Christo-Pagan religion centering on blood sacrifice), and Amaya persuades her skeptical husband to consult a South of the Border psychic. In the course of the various investigations, it transpires that Jack and Amaya have been hiding crucial details about their respective pasts. After a slow and steady build-up, events take a turn for the weird and violent as Jack comes closer to finding his daughter at the same time the authorities come closer to finding out his true identity. Soref’s feature debut presents a twisted ride into the dark night of one man’s divided soul. Best known for his amiable television work, the versatile Baker reveals a more intense side little seen since George Romero’s Land of the Dead. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Jack Bishop is a picture-perfect husband and father in a peaceful Texas border town. But when his 11-year-old daughter is kidnapped, he’ll hunt her abductors – and unleash his own tortured soul – into a Mexican hell of barrios and bordellos controlled by the mysterious religion of La Santa Muerte. When a man has too much to hide and nothing to lose, should he dare to search for the truth?

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting movie to watch but with some imperfections November 25, 2009
By kabuky
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie has an interesting premise. It has an interesting plot and twists and turns. I like suspense and truly like Simon Baker's talent; I bought this specifically because Simon Baker is in it. The ending is one I did not see coming.

Someone goofed in the editing room or in overall production. It is disjointed in several places and it maybe that some scenes were cut that should have remained. The story is good, has interesting details but something is missing. Most of the acting is good; Baker and the leading lady are great.

I was a little confused by the movie but thought it interesting and okay so I turned on the commentary from the writers/directors to possibly clear what I did not "get". I could not believe what was said in the commentary section. I listened to the inane comments from the writers/directors doing their commentary thing. Incredibly self congradulatory, self centered, self indulgent idiots who don't have a clue as to the audience they are addressing. I really don't care which one was "on scene filming" which portion of the movie while the other was in LA yet these two think it was important for all movie viewers to know this fact and comment on it. Nor do I care that they had to put signs and barbed wire in the river to look like the Rio and how proud of this fact they are - several times and minutes worth. Incredibly unprofessional, slanderous comments were made towards Baker who obviously had artistic differences with these baffons. I hope he got his money up front and cut them loose though he has plenty of material for a lawsuit. He gave them a great performance despite their obvious disdain and slandering of him behind his back such as "at least Simon has good hair but that's about the only decent thing I can say about him. Other than that, no comment." Simon and the other actors still give good performances despite the idiocy of these people at the head of the table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dark Mystery Thriller October 29, 2009
Format:DVD
Not Forgotten is a good ride. The interesting plot twists and solid performances by Simon Baker (from tv's The Mentalist) and Paz Vega take viewers on a journey of intrigue. Blending suspense, horror and action - the film makers even throw in a few laughs. I am usually a pretty good predictor of twists, but didn't see this one coming. Exploring the dark religion of La Santa Muerte is fascinating and yet disturbing. A few keystrokes on the net will take surfers to an informational website about Santa Muerte [...] to read more about it's history.

A great addition to my library.

2.0 out of 5 stars Small hints in the dark December 13, 2010
Format:DVD
The daughter of Jack Bishop (Simon Baker) is kidnapped. The police look for her. The police look up the usual suspects. Jack Bishop and his wife (who is not the mother of the daughter) look for her. They go to a blind psychic woman who gives them some leads. They go home.

Many scenes at night time. It is dark. It is hard to follow what is happening. Very small hints are given. Much too small. The viewer is not intended to really understand. Not until the end, the chocking end. Yawn.

If you want to make a movie that has a "clever twist" in the end, but not much of interest before the ending, why not make a short movie for 30 minutes? This one is more than one hour too long.

What is worse, the clever twist may be clever in a way, but it makes the story completely implausible. Good acting cannot save bad writing.

2.0 out of 5 stars all atmosphere and no thrills June 20, 2010
Format:DVD
"Not Forgotten" probably won't do much to enhance U.S./Mexico relations. Set in Del Rio, Texas, a town located just north of the border, this thriller stars "The Mentalist"s Simon Baker as a loan officer whose daughter is kidnapped by a bloodthirsty religious cult that, we're told, has achieved widespread notoreity in Mexico.

"Not Forgotten" - which is strong on atmosphere and milieu and weak on anything even remotely resembling suspense - features all the red herrings, false leads and narrative blind alleys that we've come to expect from such films, with each of the characters harboring some deep dark secret from the past that, when it is finally revealed, turns out to be a surprise only to the other characters in the story. For, indeed, when the most likely suspect turns out to be the actual culprit in the end, you know that the screenplay could probably have used a few more runs through the typewriter before going before the cameras.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revenge with lots of twists and turn LOTS! March 30, 2011
By TJ-STL
Format:DVD
I feel this REVENGE movie/video has been underrated. May be because of the complex plot, twists and turns and perhaps because of the hints of the supernatural. The story line is far different from any movie I have seen and the who dun-its kept the story line moving. It is full of suspense and well developed. I may have wanted a different ending but it was very logical. And again the final ending caught me flat footed in the last 20seconds of the movie

Not Forgotten is about a small family living in a sleepy down on the Mexican border. Jack Bishop a widower with a young daughter and a new wife live an everyday life until his daughter Toby are kidnapped. Slowly Jack's dark past comes into focus while he searches for his lost child, even turning to the religion of Santa Muerte to try to find the little girl. What follows is an interesting mystery thriller with some good but rather obvious plot twists.

The movie have a dark and atmospheric mood to it and this is it's best feature. The story is rather ok, the characters are well done but where Not Forgotten shines is in the mood. Both the use of color as well as the music is very well done. The movie have some phasing problems though and do get boring in certain sections.

Another thing this movie has going for it are the strong element of religion. While the cult of Santa Muerte is used as the villain of this plot, it is still presented in a great way and the movie made me want to go out and learn more about the religion. The inclusion of curses and blood soaked rituals adds to the mood of the film, but at the same time this faith which many real life people follows are treated with respect.

Not Forgotten had it's flaws, it moves to slowly at times at the plot is to obvious to make a good mystery. But all in all I think it is a good movie with strong themes, good characters and with a focus on a religion that many people, at least here in Europe do not know much about. I enjoyed watching Not Forgotten and I am glad that I picked it up.

This is a poorly written film, resulting in poor acting by everyone, and surprisingly, by Simon Baker. A very dark story that is slow getting nowhere.
