Director: Stephen Daldry
Actors: Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and Thomas Horn
Year: 2011
Genre: Adventure and Drama
Conclusion: 4/5
Brilliant film!! Much better than I thought it would be. The direction and everything was really good. The boy in it is excellent! I find the title of the film quite hard to remember and also to remember which way round it goes. Highly criticized by all of the film critics. There was one scene in it that made me go really cold and made me want to cry. It just felt so real. This film was shipped to some theaters under the name “The Locksmith”. The director wanted this film completed and out for the 10th Anniversary but in the end was unable to.
