[Netflix] Movie Review: The Forgotten


“Tommy (Clem Tibber) is a fourteen-year-old boy who goes to live with his father Mark (Shaun Dingwall) after his mother has a nervous breakdown. Dismayed upon learning that his father is now a squatter in an empty council estate destined for demolition, he nonetheless tries to make the best of it. Tommy is awoken each night by strange noises and on one occasion, finds that he and all of his belongings have been dragged from one side of the room to the other. Growing ever more terrified, Tommy tries to talk to his father but finds him becoming ever more bizarre and disturbing in behaviour.”

I still don’t really know what is going on with this movie. To me it moves really slow. Starts slow, moves slow, ends weird. It is a British film so I do know that makes it somewhat different from the ones produced in the States, but I’ve seen this twice now and still don’t know what to make of it.

Tommy just seems to be our guide through the movie. We follow him, but nothing really happens to him. Things happen to his Dad, his Mum, and the girl he met. I’m just a bit confused with this movie. I wouldn’t call it bad, but I don’t think I’m going to watch it again to find out.
