You know something, this could’ve been a great plot twist and surprise, but they actually gave this away in the trailer. That’s right. The film’s main plot twist is revealed in the trailer, so everyone who watched the trailer already knows what’s coming, when Craig’s character visits the asylum. This is such a letdown, but this event occurred halfway through the film, so I thought Dream House might have another chance at redemption as time progressed. Well, I was wrong.
Dream House tries to be this complex thriller film that makes you think, but they abandon the smart story towards the end. This film just goes through the motions, and I could see everything coming. The element of surprise was dead towards the end, and the unbelievable slow pace made everything a lot worse.
In the end, Dream House is a very, very boring film that doesn’t provide any real suspense or thrills. Dream House takes itself too seriously, and this isn’t a smart movie. Although, I will give this film credit, when it comes to the acting. Daniel Craig, Marton Csokas, Rachel Weisz, and Naomi Watts did deliver some fine perfomacnes, and Rachel G. Fox wasn’t bad at all, but the good acting couldn’t save this one. Dream House had some promise at first, but the story turns into one giant mess as time goes on, and the ending is so obvious. I have one little bit of advice if you want to take a chance on this film…DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER. The trailer gives away so much, and you will not be able to enjoy this film, if you watch it. Then again, the painful boredom doesn’t help anything, so it might not make a difference.
Final Rating: 2/10
