  1. "Confine" didn't really move any boundaries for the movie genre, nor did it manage to really stand out and mark itself as being unique. "Confine" turned out to be a rather mundane and mediocre movie.

    That being said, then I have to say it was because of the storyline. It was simplistic and a little bit too hard to fully buy into. But the actresses and actors in the movie did great work with their given roles and characters, and it was because of these performances that the movie was worth watching.

    Daisy Lowe really carried the movie so nicely with her portrayal of Pippa, a woman confined to her apartment for the past four years because of psychological trauma. When Kayleigh (played by Eliza Bennett) breaks into Pippa's home and keeps her hostage, Pippa is forced to deal with the harsh reality.

    The movie progressed at a fairly adequate pace, but it never really picked up speed, nor did the storyline throw off the audience in any way.

    I am not really sure that I am enjoyed the ending, because it seemed rather forced and highly unlikely to happen. And no, I am not going to spoil it here, you just have to watch it.

    For a thriller, then "Confine" didn't really shine, although it did have some brilliant moments here and there. It just failed to establish itself as an outstanding addition to the thriller genre.

  2. I watched this movie with interest knowing that it was Daisy Lowe's first lead role and thought that she made the jump from the Pippa character to Eddie very well. I must admit I was rather disappointed with the extent of her physical injuries as Pippa and Eddie was a bit um… overly made up. I'm sorry to have to say that the Kayleigh character as a heavy wasn't at all convincing but I don't think the script helped her. All in all though it was an interesting story and I look forward to seeing more from Daisy Lowe, Eliza Bennett and writer/director Tobias Tobbell in the future and will be looking out with interest.
