Overall very indulging, and well done thriller.
“Orphan” was a movie that truly did surprised me. I mean I came into this movie honestly not having any idea which direction it would take me, I mean sure it looked good, but then again the 30 second previews made it seem a bit mediocre. When the movie went off I was very pleased by what I had seen. The things I love most about Orphan is how they present and introduce these characters so well. The minute I saw the main couple I couldn’t help but take a liking to them, and Esther who very easily steals the show, is incredibly likable. As a matter of fact the thing I do love a lot about the film is how they take their time in the story, I loved how for the first half or so you see Esther adapting to her new surroundings, and I became extremely indulged into this. I also think they balanced out the character of Esther well. I mean this performance, and character, could have easily been portrayed as this over-the-top, annoying, non-intimidating, and non-believable character, but not once do you ever feel that. Also it is very entertaining, and you’re hooked from the moment you see this little girl Esther. It was also clever at times, to where you feel a sense of danger as far as the story goes because it’s literally like anything can happen. Even if does begin to make you mad for whatever reason, you still can’t help but keep watching and wondering. At times it may feel predictable, but they’ve already presented these characters so well, that you can’t but feel that maybe you haven’t predicted it. I will say I wished “Orphan” HAD paced itself a little better, I mean they don’t immediately jump into the story, but when they do it feels rushed and as if they fear the audience won’t care about the characters, when it’s not true. Also towards the end the characters start to lose liking, so much so that I couldn’t help but look at these characters(in particular the mom and dad) and say “Who are you, and why are you being such an unlikable stereotype!” As a result of the characters acting stupid and stereotypical at this point in the film it just became predictable to an extent where you knew what was going to happen. Last you know I don’t know how I felt about the twist, it was done well enough to where it would fit the storyline, but I feel it defeats the shocking, brutal, and thrilling nature of the film. Anyways, overall “Orphan” is one of the better thrillers you’ll probably see this year, and even if you’re not too big on these kind of films, I still recommend “Orphan”
Would-be chiller with a pint-sized Bela Lugosi
Another ‘evil kid’ horror film that’s content to repeat the same old plot elements and tricks from earlier, better films like THE OMEN. I admit I was looking forward to ORPHAN, as it had been a while since I’d sat down with a traditional horror film and I was looking forward to being scared. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be.
The film does have a couple of things going in its favour. Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra (who made his name with the lamentable HOUSE OF WAX remake) crafts a good-looking film with a stylishness it doesn’t really deserve. Isabelle Fuhrman, as the sinister girl at the heart of the story, is excellent in the role and would be effective if given more taxing characters (Anne Frank, for instance).
Unfortunately, that’s where the good stuff ends. The characters of the parents are particularly irritating, with Peter Sarsgaard playing an oblivious bore and Vera Farmiga a thoroughly annoying mother. Farmiga, so good in a supporting role in THE DEPARTED, also gives a bad performance that displays none of the talent she showed in the Scorsese film. Only old hand CCH Pounder is any good, and she’s virtually wasted.
The rest of the movie plays out by rote, with the expected deaths, manipulation and betrayal, before the script throws in a ludicrous twist ending which is so laughable as to be unbelievable. It’s a shame, because on occasion ORPHAN comes close to being a decent film, but in the end it just doesn’t cut the mustard.
