A small relief boat approaches a tiny, isolated island where a lighthouse is located. They’re to replenish the stocks and replace the crew of 3. After they dock no one greets them. The winch is broken. The lamps are clean and refilled; the table’s laid for dinner. There’s an upturned chair, 2 sets of yellow oilskins are missing – the 3 men have vanished.

Good old-fashion storytelling
I watched The Vanishing because:
* It’s a period piece
* I love lighthouses
* Scotland is gorgeous
* Lighthouses are even better on an island.
I got all of these, of course, in a classic tale that owes to authors such as Stevenson or Leroux. A pretty good story indeed.
Great cast. Including a very credible Scotsman played by that Greek actor, the one from Sparta.
Also known as The Vanishing, three lighthouse keepers are on their next scheduled six weeks stay on the remote Flannan Isle off the coast of Scotland in 1900. Thomas Marshall (Peter Mullan) is the 25 year veteran. James Ducat (Gerard Butler) is the family man. Donald McArthur (Connor Swindells) is the newbie. Mercury is spilled. Dead birds are found. They find a seemingly dead body washing up on shore. Donald is lowered down the cliff to retrieve the body. He finds a locked locker and they start raising it up the cliff. The supposed dead man attacks Donald who manages to kill him in self-defense. The locked box contains bars of gold and other people come looking for it.
The start is slow. I don’t like the opening text which is too vague and sounds like a ghost story. With the setting, that’s what I was expecting. It also reveals the ending which does not help the tension. It should state the place and the date and the state of the place. It should not state that the three lighthouse keepers go missing. The movie takes a giant step up upon the arrival of the strangers. Those two have great creepiness. Their threatening nature heightens the tension. The middle is very solid and I had high hopes. The last act is a bit disappointing especially after the strangers. It loses their intensity and the opening text comes back to haunt it. This movie should simply rewrite the opening text, expand the middle, and rework the last act.
