There are reasons why this went straight to DVD
I had quite a hassle with trying to watch “The Factory”. I rented the Blu-ray of the movie, but when I took it home I accidentally dropped the Blu-ray box down my building’s elevator shaft. I had to wait overnight for the elevator man to come and retrieve it, and only after he retrieved the movie could I watch it.
It wasn’t worth the hassle.
Now, this is not one of the worst movies ever made. For one thing, the movie does has some atmosphere – the Canadian locations covered in snow add a somewhat moody feeling. Also, near the end there is a twist that I admit I didn’t see coming… though when I thought about it after the movie was over, it seemed to be silly and not making much sense.
But that silly twist doesn’t sink the movie. There are two things that ultimately don’t make the movie work. The first is that there is no sense of tension or desperation at any moment in the movie, despite the fact that the story is about a cop’s daughter who is kidnapped by a deranged lunatic. The cop – and everyone else for that matter – takes the situation much too calmly. The second problem is with John Cusack’s performance. John Cusack has given good performances in past movies, but he’s really miscast here. He simply isn’t believable as a tough cop, and sticks out like a sore thumb.
As I said earlier, this isn’t one of the worst movies ever made. But those problems I mentioned ultimately sink the movie, and it’s understandable why the distributor (Warner Brothers) let this movie sit on the shelf for quite some time (the movie has a 2010 copyright date) before ultimately giving it a direct-to-DVD release.
Great Psychological Thriller
Loving films like “Silence of the Lambs” and “Se7ven”, I was nervous walking into the cinema to watch the first screening of “The Factory”… but I needn’t have been. The film is a taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller in the best tradition of these films. I can’t remember when John Cusack has been better, and both Jennifer Carpenter (as Cusack’s plucky partner) and Dallas Roberts (as the killer) are revelations. There’s a real humanity lurking beneath the surface of the film – a sense of compassion for the faceless girls that have started to missing from mid-winter Buffalo. I didn’t expect that. It’s not gory (thankfully), but it’s psychologically pretty confronting, which I found even better. The performances, the cinematography and the music are all stand-outs, as is the sting in the tail. I left wondering why there are so few of these films being made today – so much more engaging than the schlock we get dished out time and again.
