The Guest product reviews

Directed by Adam Wingard (V/H/S movie series, You're Next) The Guest deftly blends the finely tuned tension of a psychological thriller and over-the-top visceral excitement of an action drama with the sly humor of a subtle satire and the pulse-pounding suspense of a classic horror film.

Arriving unannounced on the doorstep of the Peterson family, recently discharged soldier David (Dan Stevens) brings a final message of love from their recently deceased son, Caleb, with whom he served. Still grieving over Caleb's tragic death in combat, the Petersons welcome David into their home and their lives. Humble, helpful and unfailingly polite, David turns out to be the perfect guest, filling the void left by Caleb. He consoles Caleb's mom (Sheila Kelley), helps dad Spencer (Leland Orser) get ahead at work, teaches teenager Luke (Brendan Meyer) how to defend himself against bullies

and rids rebellious daughter Anna (Maika Monroe) of her loser boyfriend. But David's unorthodox problem-solving methods begin to raise Anna's suspicions as a wave of shocking and unexplained violence spreads through their small town. When her inquiries into his past raise a red flag with a super-secret private military organization, it sets the stage for a deadly final conflict.

This was a fantastic film! On the DVD Cover it is advertised as "The Bourne Identity crossed with The Terminator" I would have to agree.

The Guest kept me intrigued, interested and guessing what was going to happen next. Dan Stevens plays his character David Collins well. David has recently been discharged from the army. He is mysterious not to mention some serious eye candy for the ladies. Move over Channing Tatum!! The story line is a little predictable but there are plenty of surprises throughout the movie too. If you're into guns there is plenty of that not to mention fighting and a lot of killing, not a family movie. It is restricted age 16 which I feel is a wise classifaction. Maika Munroe also shines in her character Anna. She reveals the deceit in the movie.

I liked this movie as it peaked both mine and my partners interests, was a film we enjoyed together and we are very interested to see if there will be a sequel. I had not heard of Dan Stevens before seeing the film but I will be looking him up to see what other films he has featured in. Overall an awesome movie!!

Violinist Ryan Harrison romances the wife of his benefactor, a man murdered by mercenaries. Naturally, Ryan gets blamed. Headed for Death Row, he's on a bus involved in a train accident and escapes in order to locate the real killer - a one-armed, ... more...
