The story had a hold on me from the start. Especially when both of the gorgeous women in this feature were introduced. The acting is quite good and there are plenty of twists and turns in the plot. Some parts of the movie play out kind of like a Cinemax feature. So if you are offended by mature themes or nudity, then don't buy this.
This dvd is entertaining and worth the purchase. The only complaints I have are the following...
-Since this was originally designed as a pc game, it is rather lengthy. I expected to be finished with it in a couple of hours...wrong. It took me at least 4.5 hours to complete it.
-At the end of each section, you are asked a series of psychological questions. Sometimes the number of questions was a bit excessive.
Other than that, this dvd is brilliant. I can't wait to purchase others like it.
For the best enjoyment value, look at it as a test, rather than as a "game" or a "movie."
This also has high enjoyment value if you can get your friends to play it. The voyeurism level is much higher than in a traditional movie - you not only watch the action, you sneak around between scenes and look into drawers, read diaries and private e-mails, etc. When you use this DVD on your friends, you get to watch -them- doing it.
Through each room and each character the movie develops and becomes almost addictive. The profiles are almost scary they are so accurate.
You must view this film at least once if not more!
1. The settings are incredibly stagnant. They should have varied the locations much, much more.
2. This film moves at a snail's pace. Too much time is spent on too little plot, and though the dialogue isn't badly written, there is simply too much of it. This story should have taken about half the time it did to unfold.
3. Not enough variety. As with the forerunner of the interactive film, the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books of the '80s, I want drastically different paths to be available to me by my choices.
4. Bad acting from John Hurt (whose role is that of a redundant, annoyingly intrusive narrator) and Marie Caldare (as catatonic wife Allison), whose pussycat whining gets annoying incredibly quickly. Michael Esposito and Beth Tegarden fare much better, one with his complicated character and the other with her enigmatic seductiveness, though because of the overlong script, even they wear thin.
5. Too many questions. At a certain point, I just want to keep moving rather than click, click, click.
You need a lot of patience to get through this one. I did find it fun overall, but Tender Loving Care is far from the complete "coming of age" of interactive movies.
