If you're looking for action, this is not the movie for you. 'Hide' is a lot of talking, a lot of introspection, and a lot of thinking and soul-searching. And it's not about what you think it's about. But Kane does an excellent job of making the character 3-dimensional and not merely a caricature as so easily could have happened. (I'm reminded of Vin Diesel's work in 'Pitch Black' where he took what could have been a mere villian and made the character complex and fascinating.) Kane took long speeches and made them interesting. I found myself nodding as I followed the character's thought processes and actually believing that someone would think that way. Not agreeing with him, you understand. Just believing in the character.
The movie is confusing and you have to pay attention to figure out what's actually going on as there are is a lot of jumping around in time. There are flashbacks and flash forwards and the entire film is very oddly put together.Read more ›
First of all this is a straight to DVD movie so if you have high hopes of quality lay them aside this instant, however, having said that they did the best they could with what they had. I went into this expecting a really poor quality B-grade horror movie and what I go was actually an interesting, slightly interllectual and definately conveluted story. I can't say I was very dissatisfied with the story as I was expecting it to be crap from the beginning but I was left wanting something a bit...more.
It is not an action movie as such so if you are hoping for lots of guns and explosions then don't bother, they've gone for cerebal over action.
If you are a big Rachel Miner fan or Christian kane fan (which I am) then you can do a lot worse that this. It's not bad for what it is but keep in mind that what it is is a straight to DVD movie. That in itself should lower expectations.
I liked it for what it was and was pleasently suprised for the most part.
If you are happy to not take it too seriously then I recomened it but if you are looking for something with greater quality and better story telling I'd look for something else.
But plenty of criminal posturing and redneck grunting is on display in HIDE, along with disturbing unexplained shots of torture and mutilation that will leave you turning your head and then scratching your head until the very end.
I think I know what happens. But I don't want to spoil anything for anyone so I may put my interpretation in the Comments section. So, if you click on my Comments (unless you're making one), you'll find the SPOILER about the ending. Or at least what I think it was.
Otherwise, I really hated all of these characters. I don't blame the actors. They were actually very good, although I was a little thrown by Rachel Miner's accent. Good or bad, I couldn't tell...but I do know that I hated her character. [...] No actress is hot enough to overcome what an annoying, obnoxious presence this skank can be.
It was also impossible to be sympathetic for the male lead. Christian Kane, right? He does a good job...but he's playing a sociopathic, a hateful bully.
I actually thought the ending was interesting but you really have to pay attention to it. It's a real JACOB'S LADDER kind of jump to make but the characters are so shallow and revolting that you don't care about them. Even if the viewer made the jump to its logic, you're left with: so what, they're worthless.
So, as much as I'd like to give points for its imaginative ending, I still couldn't justify watching these horrible people for everything leading up to it.
The cast tries hard. The movie doesn't.
