Editorial Reviews

Without the security of the job he wants or the future he dreamed of, Paul Dynan (KEVIN ZEGERS), plans the perfect crime to help his struggling family -- extort a fortune from three wealthy men (RAY LIOTTA, VICTOR GARBER, STEPHEN MCHATTIE). The plan: to abduct their socialite children (LAURA VANDERVOORT, DUSTIN MILLIGAN, JOHN BREGAR) and collect a healthy ransom of $3-million dollars. Over the course of one long night, Paul and his accomplices hold the rich kids hostage awaiting the $3-million ransom with little idea of the secrets that will surface between the fathers when they are forced to choose between their children and their money. Once blood is shed and things go horribly wrong, Paul must fight to stay one step ahead of his own twisted game.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEED TO DO SOMETHING ON FRIDAY NIGHT.. September 11, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Kevin Zegers plays Paul Dynan a struggling young man who can't make ends meet due to hard times and an ailing mother. But he has a plan...kidnap 3 spoiled rich kids with no likeable qualities and ransom them for money. He found two people who are a little psychotic to help him. They turn out to be wild cards in Paul's grand scheme.

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.

Format:Blu-ray
In the realm of direct-to-DVD thrillers, there are certainly a lot less attractive options available than "The Entitled." The production is glossy and professional and the cast is actually quite good for this sort of entertainment. The film aspires to be a twisty and clever thriller and, for the most part, succeeds as an amusing enough diversion. It is, however, one of those movies that it is best not to dissect as the screenplay doesn't really hold up to scrutiny. Style over substance, the narrative simply isn't as surprising or as smart as it wants you to believe. In the plot, an elaborate kidnapping scheme is executed to precision--but when the story needs to shift, someone will conveniently do something exceedingly dumb. This pattern is repeated throughout as a shortcut to relatively lazy storytelling. There is also a huge surprise moment (which I figured out the first time a certain character appeared on screen) whose payoff is completely determined by an absolutely illogical bit of plotting in the final act.

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.

"I played by the rules. I wanted to play by the rules, but that's the big lie. It's not enough anymore so mabye, just once, you gotta break them...right?" After Paul (Zegers) gets turned down for a job and his sick mom gets a foreclosure notice on the house he becomes desperate. His plan is to kidnap three kids of rich families and hold them for a million each. When the plan goes wrong he must find a way to stay clean and get the money. This is a very surprising movie. This is the type of movie where you put it because of the cast and end up really enjoying it. I'm not saying this is an Oscar type movie, but it is very entertaining and fun to watch. This movie also had an ending that fit the movie and is one that is hard to totally figure out before the reveal, which makes it that much better. A realistic look at what a kid on the edge can do if he is pushed. Very much worth watching. Overall, a very entertaining thriller that leaves you wondering who to pull for. I liked it a lot. I give it a B+.

Would I watch again? - I think I would, to catch clues about the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart thriller that you will want to watch again May 16, 2012
Format:DVD
This was a perfectly paced thriller with a few surprises.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Taut Drama with some Clever Plotting November 20, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie has a quiet concentration that allows tension to build. Its focus on faces and its lack of a lot of special effects make it like the eye of a storm. Watching it, you become charged with anticipation of something dreadful to come.

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.
