Saying that always feels like a cop-out to me, because some people read reviews to hear the spoiler-y in-depth thoughts of guys like me, but then again spoilers suck, and sometimes, whether we like to read them or not, a movie just plays better without knowing them.
Pet is just one of those movies that I think deserves to be seen as out of the loop as possible.
|AND STALKS HER AT WORK.|
And that's all we're saying.
|YEAH, SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE'S IN DIRE NEED OF HELP.|
I don't know. You watch the movie, then tell me if I'm crazy or not.
This movie is a twisted ride that doesn't really offer much in the way of sympathetic characters, not truly, although at times our feelings did get a bit confused. Dominic Monaghan and his leading lady, the gorgeous Ksenia Solo, had some gritty work (both physically and psychologically) to do in this one, and they handled it perfectly.
Anyone who watched the TV show Lost Girl already knows who Ksenia Solo is. I have never watched that show, but her performance here as the crazy bitch in a cage has made me realize that I need to, because the girl can act. She plays subtly dangerous very well, and for me, she is what made this movie work as well as it does.
And Dominic Monaghan is world famous for his role in the Lord of the Rings flicks and LOST, which honestly, is enough acting credit to buy him everlasting goodwill from me. The dude is also and animal fanatic, and he tends to be good in whatever he does, and it's nice to see him play a "bad guy" in this one. He does dark and creepy very well.
The one issue that we had with the movie was that the twist, which we really dug, was revealed way too early on. I really want to elaborate, but I'd hate to spoil the table-turning in this one.
|YEAH. TIME TO RUN.|
|A MOVIE FILLED WITH WET, RED DELIGHTS. THAT'S WHAT THIS IS.|
|DIDN'T REALLY THINK THIS ONE THROUGH, DID YA?|
Rent it now, and enjoy the carnage.
Pet is available now on VOD and DVD.
Ksenia Solo may be the sexiest Latvian-Canadian actress of all-time. Then again, she may be the only Latvian-Canadian actress, so...
