Kevin Zegers plays the piece's antihero. Suffering from the downturned economy, this good guy is only looking to protect his family. When he can't get ahead by legitimate means, he enlists two outcasts and masterminds the aforementioned kidnapping. Abducting three wealthy and entitled young adults, he expects to extract a million dollar bounty for each from their powerful fathers. In the claustrophobic atmosphere of the film, we see the struggles of the victims, the strife of the kidnappers, and the stress of the fathers. It is all surprisingly well acted, even if it isn't always the most believable of scenarios.Read more ›
There is some first person narration by Paul in the beginning to describe his situation, but it ceases as the movie progresses. The movie touches on themes of anarchy and class warfare. Decent acting, well written.
F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.
Would I watch again? - I think I would, to catch clues about the ending.
*Also try - Endure & Hostage
In the "Behind the Scenes" special feature, the writer and director call the film a "thriller." But I don't think that's quite right. That description conjures pictures of yet another psycho stalker. And that's not what this movie is about, although one of the characters is a sociopath. However this film's plot is centered on what started out as a carefully planned kidnapping.
I was a little disappointed when, before watching "Entitled," I saw that it had an "Alternate Ending" as a bonus feature. An alternate ending usually means that the producers had no real personal vision for the film and were just ready to cobble together whatever they thought would make for the biggest box office. But that isn't the case here. The alternate ending doesn't detract from the film's coherent point of view.
This is well-acted, intelligent, and gripping.
It has the ability to make you feel sorry for people that might or might not be worthy of your sympathy and hate people that might or might not be worthy of your hate.
I have seen many films of this type but this one was much more cleverly done than most.
Kevin Zegars is great in the starring role.He plays a recent graduate that can't seem to mesh with the corporate world or find any job that pays enough money to allow him to help his parents who are in dire need of financial assistance so he comes up with a very clever alternative which is to mentally and physically seduce two losers to help him kidnap three teens with very rich parents . All the other actors do a great job in their roles and I particularly loved Victor Garber in his role but I always love his work.
I had to re watch it immediately after viewing it the first time to see what I should have noticed during the first viewing.
I highly recommend it to anyone who likes smart thrillers with brains and heart.
