Of the seven men shown in this movie, five are killed by Basinger in mostly bloody fashion - only one of these killings is a blatant murder though, and since we're supposed to believe that all men are evil, sadistic, bumbling, arrogant idiots, it's okay to murder them. Kim Basinger and Lukas Haas star in a thriller produced by Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and directed by Susan Montford. Because in my opinion, a movie can be bad enough to at least be fun to make fun of. A suburban housewife heads out for a quick trip to the local mall, only to find herself trapped in the forest and forced to fend for herself against four murderous hooligans. It's Christmas Eve and after her asshole husband comes home, commits some domestic violence, she goes to the mall to buy wrapping paper. And who can forget how the first thug bites the bullet in this thing. If you like garbage, you're going to love this rotten movie.
In the chase, she crashes in a nearby forest. All through it you get the impression she is determined to survive so she can get home to her kids, which is fine, then it's implied that she does something that can guarantee she won't be seeing those kids for quite some time. I want my time back. Della Myers is an overwhelmed upper-middle-class housewife who lives in a large house in the suburbs with her twin children and her abusive husband, Kenneth. I challenge anyone to go for a run through the woods with one of these sons of bitches and try to hide from some sadistic guys wanting your head on a pole.
Her name is The worst, most stupidly offensive film I have ever seen. While searching for a parking space in the jam-packed lot, Della notices an old car taking up two spaces. It's a good movie to make comments during, but other than that it's shit. I want the writer, director and Basinger to go away and never do anything else I might accidentally see in the future. Her name is Susan Montford? It runs out of steam about halfway through and becomes a bit boring - which probably isn't great for a thriller! It is about as exciting as a colostomy bag, and full of the same thing. When the security guard of the mall attempts to protect Della, he is shot and killed by Chuckie.
Just a list of shit I noticed while viewing it. You have the Hispanic guy, the Asian guy, the Black guy, and the Amish Kid. I'm just going to list the problems with this movie. You look at them funny and they make banging noises from the tools inside. I'm here to tell you that they are the loudest fucking things on the planet, especially when someone is trying to kill you.
I mean for goodness sake, the husbands a pig, we get it. Della tries to escape from the criminals in her truck, but the gang chases her. Wait, the writer and director were one in the same. Not only that, I like how the moron bad guys all of the sudden gain Aragorn worthy tracking skills, and how they always seemed to go the direction she did in a huge forest even before she started doing genius stuff like screaming to God in the middle of the stream. Wait, the writer and director were one in the same. I want the writer, director and Basinger to go away and never do anything else I might accidentally see in the future.
She gets harassed by a group of thugs led by Creepy Witness Amish kid Lucas Haas, leading to them murdering a rent-a-cop before her eyes. If you've got to be sexist, at least be entertaining. Now I own two tool boxes just like Della's. There is just shit lying around everywhere. It's like she wanted to be caught the whole time. Late on Christmas Eve, Della drives to the local mall to buy gift-wrap.
Seriously, Kim Basinger's character was so ridiculously stupid, that about halfway through the movie I just wanted the bad guys to win and kill her. Add in the crap acting, direction, and everything else you get a waste of 90 minutes. And there can't be many tools in it either because she flings it around like it's her purse. She's not Rambo or MacGyver. Kenneth lets Della know that he thinks she gives all her attention to the twins and neglects her house and her appearance.
. She takes a red metal tool box with her and it's a fight for her life, though most of the film ends up in the woods. ½ This was kind of dumb. Great, now I know who to forever avoid. Does Affirmative Action count for street toughs? She gets chased to the trashiest sub division under construction I have ever seen. How many times does she have to stop and eavesdrop on what's going on? This has to be the cheapest, most thrown together movie I have seen in a very long time. Had a great premise, but then it decided to have the characters all act like unbelievable retards.
