The film centers around the character of Claire. She is a driver, a super woman. If you don't like her, you won't like the film. I loved her role, the relationships she had with everyone, and the crisp dialouge. The production reminded me of a Lifetime film, except for some strange reason I enjoyed watching Kristen Dalton overcome all kinds of issues.
This is a film I don't normally like, it just caught me in the right mood.
Parental Guide: No sex or nudity. I don't recall any F-bombs.
In reality, both categories have their strengths and weaknesses. Hollywood movies take advantage of the massive budgets and A-list talent made available to them, and the (admittedly rare) truly talented creative men and women know how to make immensely satisfying spectacles. Festival movies, made with small budgets and seemingly often willed into existence by the sheer determination of the filmmakers, are usually full of heart and are allowed to experiment a bit more than a Hollywood production due to not being tied down to a money-minded producer's will.
It is only rarely that a movie will satisfy on both sides. A Dangerous Place draws from the thriller tradition of big Hollywood but never loses its ability to involve the audience's emotions and challenge norms. It is a movie about the strength of an independent woman forced to act with the safety of the country on the line that keeps the audience both riveted and intellectually and emotionally involved. Having seen the movie at the 2012 Garden State Film Festival, where it won the best picture award and set attendance records, I was witness to the way the entire audience reacted to both the emotional moments and the thrilling ones. A film with the ability to do both holds a special power and indicates a special talent.
A sight that I won't forget: old ladies in the audience cheering passionately as the antagonist meets his violent demise. This is how you know a movie has succeeded in involving its audience.
A great movie that is relevant to the times, emotionally involving, and as thrilling as anything Hollywood is capable of producing.
Aside from supporting the New Jersey film scene, it's also really great to see a seasoned actress such as Kristen Dalton (who was Jack Nicholson's GF in The Departed!) utilize her acting talents to her fullest potential. She seemed to effortlessly mold into her role.
After meeting and getting to know all of the different people involved with "A Dangerous Place," I know why the movie came out as well as it did and why it gained such widespread support in the film festival market. Everyone involved was passionate and dedicated and seeing the community it built is all the more reason to support this movie.
...and it will keep you at the edge of your seat!
Another note concerning the bogus reviews, almost every review is from first time reviewers which were much like the ones left on the youtube trailer. On top of that the director himself left a review on this site! boxoffice.com does not even have it listed in it's archives. Heck there aren't enough copies to even sell on Amazon.
The review: "A Frantic Place" This straight to torrent film is indeed "Frantic".It is continually in a frantic search for an identity. Is it a suspense? Is it a drama? is it a feel good movie? It seems to be several ideas that could have been pursued into several stories but ended up in one. Near the end as the movie's star was fighting for her life so was this film. Character development was so fractured it became convoluted. I did view this without a preconceived notion or expectation.
In regard to the cast,crew and Director writing "Reviews" for this Film, I still feel it is a conflict of interest for any commenting here or any other sites by anyone other than the end user or viewer.
To the Director, thank you for your kind note. Feel free to contact me about your future projects.
