Yet another movie where the back of the box is, in some form or another, misleading, The Disappearance of Alice Creed’s box basically states that two men meticulously worked out a plan to kidnap the daughter of a wealthy man, but what they don’t know is that she won’t give in without a fight. But that’s only half true. Sure the plan was very meticulously thought out, and that was actually pretty cool to watch, but the notion that she won’t submit without a fight is almost a complete fabrication. Lie aside, however, this movie is a fairly fun ride.

Verdict: Rent It
