Don’t Say A Word got a R1 release almost simultaneously with its UK cinema release. Michael Douglas plays a rare straightforward hero, a psychiatrist whose daughter is kidnapped by released convict Sean Bean and pals. Needless to say there’s the odd twist and turn and car chase before the end. There’s also a clever plot and elegant direction from the underrated Gary Fleder, who also contributes an intelligent and informative commentary track.
It’s not the most exciting movie ever but it is smarter than the average thriller and keeps you guessing almost up to the end, and Fleder almost always has his camera in the right place.
