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.

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.

"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.

Just noticed that Ray Liotta's acting wasn't that great...he seemed out of sorts and uncomfortable - not as his character but in general. There wasn't enough time to get connected to anyone before things started happening in this movie. I've noticed that seems to be the trend in movies these days. A little build up would be nice so you're a little attached to what's going on.

During this movie I suspected every character of being involved in the criminal plot.
Even after the movie was over I kept going over what had happened and what each person had done -- why were some people forced to fight for their reputation while others escaped unnoticed; the character played by Kevin Zegers was most perplexing (I confess that I bought the movie because Kevin Zegers is in it, but I was so pleasantly surprise to find Ray Liotta and Victor Garber also in the film).
The movie might have needed more depth in its portrayal of the rich and beautiful versus the poor/struggling and overlooked. I think the movie provided enough food for thought even though the Hollywood crime genre is not known for its character studies, especially of wrong-doers. Wrong-doers get caught then punished, right? That's the way it is supposed to be, right?

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.
