Hush [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

Hush [2009]

This British movie used the classical AmericanHush premise of driving, trucks and bad things happening on a highway. Although, the Brits also love their highways, especially the M’s. The young couple with relationship problems saw a naked girl in the back of the white truck. She is chained down and obviously kidnapped, and the question is what to do. Although the production did not have much money they used it wisely and I really like how Hush looks, contrary to some of the reviews I have read. The basic premise is very powerful, engulfing the entire movie and leaving not much room for other elements. Moral choices are always a fun thing to analyze, especially today in this overly righteous world of likes and prayers.

Camera is great on regular speed, but on one shot with the speed slowed down it shows its downside. Movie is just packed with suspense, although it has somewhat predictable plot it still manages to keep the viewer interested. Cast is good, and I especially liked William Ash as Zakes Abbot. Along with a good dialogue, they created a very likable and empathic characters that will make you yell at the screen, shouting instructions or warnings. Anyway, great movie, definitely worth watching and keep an eye on this director he can make it big. One final thing about Hush, I didn’t know that people like this have a name: Highwayman. In the old days, they used to rob carriages, usually killing or taking man and women with them. For nefarious purposes, of course. If you want to read more about them, here’s a link to a Wikipedia page: Highwayman.
