    Well Done Worth A View for Any Danny Boyle Fan

    It's a well scripted and well acted film. The cinematography is cutting edge, exactly what you would expect from Danny Boyle. But it does seem to lack a certain heart. iI's a definite view for any Danny Boyle and dark suspense fan but for the normal joe sixpack who didn't enjoy Trainspotting or doesn't under stand the nuances and easter eggs of a well crafted show like Breaking Bad or House of Cards, you might be a bit put off by Boyle's latest feature.

    Trance and Danny Boyle

    I love anything Danny Boyle puts his mind too. This is an interesting film, sort of a heist film but not the normal one you may be thinking about. James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson star in it... There's some really strange goings on in this movie and it will keep you guessing. I was in London when it came out and went to a special screening at the BFI to see this, and it's great to have a copy of it of my own.

    Twisted, Interesting, and Engrossing

    What a twisted film. This is a British crime noir type film. Gritty and interesting, it succeeds in being somewhat original in its story line. Now, there are quite a few elements and plot points that make no sense until the end, but it is worth it. The film can be difficult to follow at times, but it really is an interesting and thought provoking film.

    What a surprising movie. Purchased not knowing too much about it but it was a fun movie with a few surprises and twists. Directed and paced in typical trippy Danny Boyle fashion, but not having quite the same impact as his others. Great acting from the leads. Don't get too bogged down in the neuropsychology of it.

    This film starts with a sophisticated heist from an auction house but the story is intricate with lots of sneaky, little tidbits so you really need to pay attention to what is happening throughout the course of the film. Phenomenal cast of actors and great twisted story that will leave you in a ... Trance.

    Solid, unspectacular thriller

    This is a textbook example of style trumping substance; when all is said and revealed, Trance barely makes a whit of sense, but it's so well made and acted that the sheer lunacy of the plot doesn't matter while it's unfolding. Not top-tier Danny Boyle, but it'll do.

    Art Theft Movie

    I am a fan of movies of the "art heist" genre, but this one is only average. Watchable, but there are much better ones out there including "Incognito." It really is one of those movies I wish I'd rented instead of purchased. This particular movie has a ragged plot.

    20 minutes too long there is a whole section in the middle where I didnt know what was a dream and what wasnt and as it served nothing to the final act was made pointless Enjoyed the performances Rosario Dawson verges between interesting to irritating throughout.

    I am not one for spoiling a film for others since I know I would not prefer for anyone to spoil films for me. This movie is one for people to own that have already seen it, in my opinion. If you have not seen it, don't buy it first, rent it.

    The movie was an enjoyable watch. It had the aspects of a thriller and also some very intriguing action sequences all complemented by a series of plot twists and a surprise ending. I recommend watching this movie if you like good movies.

    I have followed the director, Danny Boyle since Trainspotting. He has directed some of the best movies of all time. He did not fail to keep us intrigued for the entire length of the film. The plot twists are great in this movie.

    I liked the idea of trying to get info through hypnosis. The idea of buried memories is intriguing. The added idea that he had dealing with a gang, that just ups the stakes. Reminded me of "inception" in some ways.

    I'm a fan of James McAvoy, and this was a rather unusual role for him. If you like Hitchcock - style mystery thrillers, this one is worth watching, though some of the plot points are hard to believe.

    I did not know what was going to happen until the very end of this movie. When it was revealed who was really to blame , I was left with a sense of mild disappointment about it.

    A boring film from an otherwise great director. I didn't care for the acting and the plot twist at the end wasn't very surprising. Worth a rental but not worth buying.

    Multi-layered and beautifully-filmed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle. Psychological drama introduces us to the world of art and hypnosis with a unique plot and many twists.

    This movie had an awesome cast and is a mind bender. It had a couple of twists. I wasn't too crazy about the ending though but overall a pretty good purchase.
