SYNOPSIS
Recalling Alfred Hitchcock and Brian Depalma in both style and suspense, first-time director Andrew Moorman has made an extrodinary debut film that is guaranteed to keep even the most jaded viewer on the edge of their seat.

In a dingy motel in the middle of nowhere, a bank robberhold a young, attractive girl hostage. Keeping her handcuffed to the bed until he is able to formulate a plan, things go from bad to worse when an escaped convict takes them both prisoner and sets in motion a dangerous and very bloody cat-and-mouse game of one-upmanship. Who wins in the end isn't always about who has control of the gun - but it certainly helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent directorial debut by Andrew Moorman March 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Trip is an inexperienced bank robber with a hostage and a plan to drive to Canada. Spending the night in a roadside motel, he has his captive, Sarah, chained to the bed, her feet tied, and duct tape across her mouth. Unfortunately for him, Sarah is the one of the feistiest, most fearless hostages you'll ever meet. And there's a third player waiting in the wings. All of which is going to make for a very bad night for Trip.

Sympathy takes place entirely in one room, with a very small cast. The actors are pushed to their limits, emotions and power shifting and twisting from moment to moment as they play cat and mouse games all night long. The cast is well up to the challenge, creating believable, complex characters with a minimum of props and other actors to play off of. As the night progresses, we develop a certain twisted attachment to liars, thieves, and murderers.

The plot has many twists, so many that we genuinely don't know who will survive, or how. If you can overlook some initial hard-to-swallow events that set up the rest of the story, Sympathy will keep you engaged and thinking until the very end. This debut picture by Andrew Moorman promises very good things to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Long Time To Spend In One Room!... June 19, 2011
Format:DVD
SYMPATHY has its good and bad points. The best thing is the ending, which is one of the coolest, twistiest I've seen in any thriller. The final 15 minutes are priceless and intense. The problem lies in actually getting there, as the 103 minute run time of the film tends to drraggg. This is magnified by the fact that the entire movie takes place in one tiny motel room! Now, this adds to the tension and claustrophobic feel, but it just seems to go on forever, at times going back and forth over the same conversations. If they could have sliced off about 15 minutes of dross, this would have been a classic. As it stands, while still quite watchable, it has many tedious moments that take away from the suspensefulness of the whole...

5.0 out of 5 stars Tense film from new director April 12, 2010
Format:DVD
I have seen this film and it is an outstanding exercise in tension and surprise. There's an event that happens at the sixty minute mark and then another one minute later that will have your jaw on the floor. This is quite a stunner of a movie and definitely worth the purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sympathy not worth buying September 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this video expecting it to be more than just one long continuous scene in a hotel room. I soon grew bored with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaking Suspense May 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From the very beginning everyone in the house was hooked from 17 years olds to 60 year olds, we were on the edge of our seats. It was hard to believe that it all took place in one hotel room that was constructed from an old barn. Amazing photography and characterization
