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?

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

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Baker should sue January 28, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD to see more of Simon Baker's work. He and Ms. Vega were superb as ever. I found the child actress to be believable but the rest of the actors seemed cast for their appearance, even the "famous Mexican actress". I was shocked and grieved to hear the comments of the director and producer (?) about Simon Baker. What were they thinking? If they perceived his actions to be nervous and demanding, they should have taken it as a clue that their decisions needed tweaking. Such a prima donna would not be cast in projects before and after their film because he is not particularly famous. I had not heard of him nor The Mentalist until last year. (Granted, I don't watch much TV). Viewing reruns of the show, I was impressed with his skill and quirky characterization. Curious to know if he could create other types of characters, I searched IMBD and was surprised to find that he had won many awards. After watching some of his movies and all of The Guardian series I know I can count on this actor for consistancy: tremendous concentration, truth, variety and clarity. My recommendation to everyone is to watch anything that he is in and to disregard the comments of these two fools.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forget this movie! October 16, 2012
By zeus
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a movie that I try to forget I bought, like this I will not regret too much the few $ I spent on Amazon. The Mentalist is one of my favorite TV shows and I have seen Paz Vega in other movies. So I didn't hesitate to get the movie. What a mistake!

The plot is quite complicated and really difficult to imagine. Jack Bishop (Simon Baker) is a businessman, and coach of the soccer team that his daughter Tobey (Chloe Moretz) is playing on. They are living in a Texas border town. He is married to Amaya (Paz Vega). She is not the mother of Tobey. One day, just before practice, his daughter is kidnapped by someone and then...the movie starts. The cops are getting involved and are investigating. They ask Jack about his ex wife and he says that she died and that he doesn't remember where his wife is burried and doesn't have a death certificate. He also doesn't remember how his wife died. And the cops say ....OK, no problem (!). From that point on I stopped taking this movie seriously and just watched to see where the pathetic director is taking us. Probably one of the worst direction I have ever seen! When the director of a movie accepts such nonsense then the whole script belongs in the garbage.

This is a bad movie all around. Bad plot, bad acting, bad direction, especially the direction. Not sure why they keep showing the river with the border line between Texas and Mexico all the time. At no point we believe that Baker is that reformed assassin while the direction of the movie is at best pathetic. The movie jumps from one scene to the other without any cohesion and smooth transitions.

Two stars for Chloe Moretz who tries to save the movie and for the end that is unexpected. But the plot had potential with another director and with someone who can really play a guy with two personalities (Ralph Fiennes comes to mind instead of Simon Baker).

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.
