Hide And Seek

Last night we watched Hide And Seek, starring Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning.

The movie is a thriller/drama/horror about a widower who tries to piece his life together in the wake of his wife’s suicide, and his daughter who seems to find solace, at first, in her imaginary friend Charlie, until things go bad.

I actually like the idea and story of the movie, but I believe it could have been executed a lot better.
It’s a shame they allowed it to get a bit boring at certain stages of the movie, which basically weakened it as a movie.

Dakota Fanning is a great great talent though. She is just amazing. In every movie I’ve seen her in, she outshines all the other actors, in this case De Niro himself.

If you’ve got nothing better to see, then check this movie out just for the sake of seeing Dakota do another great job, and for the idea and twist of the movie.

My score for this movie is: 6/10.
