I never have been a fan of horror movies. It's hard to find one that is actually scary. This movie was no exception. It kept you a little intrigued. They leave the ending too open. They didn't explain why the woman wasn't at peace when she was reunited with her son. I hate to say it but I really do think that Daniel Radcliffe will always be seen as Harry Potter. They put him in an adult role and his acting wasn't bad in it but he just appeared way too young in this movie to be a husband and father. Worth watching though.
Alright so i watched this film the other day instead of watching star wars in 3d as i didn't want to spend £10 pound for a film that i have already seen been made 3d, fuck you lucus, fuck you. I made the wrong decision, woman in black is a pretty crappy film, Some points that annoyed me:
Point 1: Its supposed to be a scary film but as every other film nowadays does it just relies on jump scares what ever happened to nightmare on elm street that shit got you scared.
Point 2: The acting is terrible, Daniels performance got me annoyed he seemed to have no character at all, your son is going to die if you don't stop her and his response is just bland and terrible....stick to your strong points (live on your harry potter money) . every other actor in this film upstaged Daniels performance if anything Daniels should have been a cameo.
Point 3: The script was okay but could of been better, i mean its one of those scripts were you know the next line and what's coming next.
Point 4: Pretty much at the end of the film Daniel tries to give the woman in black her dead son back by recovering his body and going into the nursery and playing all of the musical toys which i really enjoyed the toys seemed to really scare me and had haunting essence especially when the camera focused on the faces of the dolls. So he does all of this so his son doesn't get killed as he is arriving on a train to meet him. The toys play the tunes and everything is building up to the finale...then you see then women in black and you're like for fuck sake seen this a million times as she floats there in a black dress white face ect and flies towards him and screams. All done before love, So she disappears and they think its all over then his kid arrives and he says to the nanny "get some tickets back to london i'll explain on the way". So she goes off to buy tickets and he's talking to his friend and his son runs on the track (bad parenting skills) and he tries saving him and they both get hit by the train it goes black and it shows him holding his son and no-ones there then we realise he's dead but inside he's happy as he gets to be with his wife. So he spent all that time crawling through marshy shit retrieving a corpse to please this women to die anyway!!!! WTF. Makes the previous task pretty pointless.
Overall this film is pretty poor Daniels performance isn't that bad he just can't pull of being a dad. Don't spend your money for this at cinemas or on the DVD but if its on T.V I would watch it, it will keep you at the edge of your seat and behind it.
This movie is the worst!!!! Please don't waste your money to go see this horrible movie. You will be very upset that you wasted a hour and 35 minutes that you could have been doing something else to with. Ok Ok so I will help you save time...he and his son die at the end of the movie and who kills them the woman in black. You guys can thank me later I just help you save time and money.
On Sunday evening, I frequented the wonderful and lately renovated Town Theater and saw The Lady in Dark-colored. After purchasing a bag of snacks and negotiating into my chair, I ready myself for a horrific cure.
This tale, set in Victorian age Britain, follows widowed Arthur Kipps (played by Daniel Radcliffe, lately out of the wizarding community of the Harry Knitter films) as he simply leaves his four-year-old son in Manchester and trips to the terror-filled city of Crythin Gifford. Once in the threatening group, Arthur has to voyage to Eel Marsh Home to look for through a passed old lady's lawful documents or possibility dropping his job at his law organization.
After returning, Arthur is met with little welcome as most of the residents reduce away from his existence and quickly contact their kids within as he moves by. In city Arthur satisfies Sam Day-to-day (Ciarán Hinds) and his spouse (Janet McTeer) who vaguely tip that there is something crazy about the home, although Mr. Day-to-day is doubtful. After investing a day at the property, Arthur begins to think that the house as well as the whole city has a chillingly terrifying area and looks for to examine. As he stays more time in the home, his accusations confirm appropriate and the plan gets worse to a relaxing bottom range and an experience with the powerful woman in black.
According to audience Betty Holman, “The items in the home made the movie so much more frightening. I liked the way they lastly settled all the secrets at the end of the movie.”
Daniel Radcliffe does an awesome job at maintaining this movie extreme and extraordinary, but Radcliffe’s personality also seems a little youthful to perform just one dad. Nevertheless, “scary” Knitter is successful at maintaining the suspense in existence. And for those who are big Harry Knitter lovers – but not terrifying lovers – I would warning against seeing it. This movie is not a conventional terrifying movie but it contains enough backbone pins and needles components to make you rest with one eye start and have a look at the windows twice.
The Lady in Dark-colored taking strolls the range between the terrifying and thriller styles. There are many exciting moments that will keep you on the area of your chair, and the attracted out breaks between each of the hair-raising activities with the strange woman in black will keep your center beating. It is value seeing if you appreciate a terrifying, fascinating trip.
