Rich, bored teenager, from rich, bored family is liberated from apathy by mysterious, psycho uncle who arrives shortly after her father’s death. The film is not quite as disturbing as it purports to be except for one particular scene, (hint: snow-angels). This lacking is something I don’t understand, because it is directed by Oldboy‘s Park Chan-wook and, boy, can that guy do disturbing. The only performance I rated was that of Matthew Goode (Watchman‘s Ozymandias). Wait for the rental.

"I hate this!"
"I don't care."
"Who the Hell is 'The Captain' anyway?"
-"He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension."- Anonymous
"Finally an honest review…great!"
