Disclosure: I received a free copy of the following Blu-ray for the purpose of this review. I was not asked or encouraged to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are honest and my own. This post contains an affiliate link.
From ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning director Danny Boyle* (Slumdog Millionaire) comes an “exhilarating brain-twister” (New York Post)! After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), a fine-art auctioneer, awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. Forced by his ruthless crime partner Franck (Vincent Cassel, Black Swan) to undergo hypnosis, Simon enters into a deadly love triangle with his seductive hypnotist (Rosario Dawson, Sin City). As the plot twists, the line between reality and dream becomes blurred in this fast-paced, unpredictable, “sexy and suspenseful” (Empire) thriller.
I had no plans on seeing this movie. When it showed up in my mail to review, I honestly wasn’t looking forward to watching it. Being the honest blogger that I am – I sat down and watched it anyway. Well, I can’t say that I loved this movie, but I can say I enjoyed it more than I expected to. Never shying away from a good story-telling movie, I found the plot and the characters very well developed. There are a lot of twists and turns in Trance, so be ready to pay attention it’s well worth your time.
Also worth your time are the Blu-ray extras. Including the Short Film: EUGENE by Spencer Susser.
Trance is avaible now where DVD and Blu-ray movies are sold, like on Amazon .
