Three socialite fresh-out-of-college college students are kidnapped. They have the money, the fame, and basically they are just snobbish brats that takes everything for granted. Enter Paul Dynan, who has made sure that these three socialites will get what’s coming to them, though all he wants is the money… His girlfriend and her ex on the other hand have more sadistic thoughts in mind, which leads to the chaos that could have been prevented. However, as the bodies pile up, the money rolls in and the twist becomes apparent, one cannot help but wonder why they aren’t a part of The Entitled’s plot.
The Entitled is a film about revenge in a different way. We have a guy that’s been trying his best to get a job, fresh out of college, hopes and dreams on his sleeve and yet, he can’t get a job and neither can he help his mortally ill mother get her medicine. He concocts a plan, which we get hints about throughout the film, but we never really know what he is thinking. How is it that this fresh faced young man hangs out with a goth girl that’s got a criminal record? Why is she so desperate to get her own revenge on the socialites they kidnapped? Will Paul Dynan actually get away with his crimes? These are the questions we face during the film and surprisingly enough, they get answered in their own ways.
The film stars some big names from the acting world, including Kevin Zegers (Dawn of the Dead, Wrong Turn), Victor Garber (Titanic, Milk), Ray Liotta (Hannibal, Goodfellas), Dustin Milligan (Slither, The Butterfly Effect 2) and more! In other words, the acting is quite good and there was a little bit more in the budget to work with… Also, it’s a nice thriller for a rainy day and at some points throughout you’ll really be surprised by the twists and turns that the plot takes. Friendships are tested, deception becomes apparent and at the end of it all you’ll be wondering why you haven’t thought of doing it yourself. It’s quite an ingenious plan in my personal opinion and a nice movie to have in your collection too.
The Entitled is for anyone who enjoys thrillers that has some blood and violence here and there. Also, it’s an intelligent movie, so if you enjoy having your brain working a bit to work out what’s going to happen next, then this movie is for you. I’m quite surprised that The Entitled didn’t get more light shone on it from the critics around the world, because it would have fit well in with most of the film bloggers’ websites… Perhaps I just got lucky to score this movie, but it’s a definite must-see and you’ll want to re-watch it later on again, making it a great buy.
