    Synopsis


    The Tall Man
    A nurse races to rescue her young son from a seemingly supernatural figure who's been snatching children from a depressed mining town in this downbeat tale of terror from Martyrs director Pascal Laugier. For years, a mysterious entity known as the Tall Man has been abducting children from Cold Rock. The moment they vanish, they're never seen again. Once a prosperous mining town, Cold Rock has fallen to ruin, yet local nurse Julia (Jessica Biel) writes off rumors of the elusive Tall Man as local superstition. Then one night, to her horror, Julia awakens to find her son David in the arms of the spectral figure, who steals the boy away into the darkness. Now Julia won't stop searching for David until he's back safe in her arms, and the truth about the missing children of Cold Rock is finally revealed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Poorly thought-out ending left audiance "hanging"

      This story, a sad one at that, is a parent’s worst nightmare – and sadly it is well-done and much to realistic. It is also a saga of a dying isolated community in rural Washington State whose only source of income is its’ mine and it was closed several years ago which thrust the town into despair. Abject poverty is evident everywhere. This film is well-casted and features extra-ordinary acting and it is filled with non-stop surprises/thrills. Its’ poorly thought-out ending left the audience “Hanging” – thus my lack of overall enthusiasm.

      Woman invents 'The Tall Man' to save abused kids

      Woman and her husband invent 'The Tall Man' to save abused kids, kidnapping them from abusive households. A few exciting scenes, featuring vicious dog attacks - actually kind of hard to watch, even for strong stomachs!!!!! VERY VERY dragged out, dull as can be, ultimately STUPID. At 100 minutes until the credits start, this feels like 3 hours long. You may find yourself ff>> through MOST of this yawner.....

      One of the worst movies I've ever watched. An employee in the store told me the ending was worth watching because you didn't suspect it. Not quite sure what was unpredictable about it. It is far too long and drawn out - I think we talked through a good portion of it and we still weren't lost as to what was going on. Ending was lame. Acting awful. And the "special effects" were cheap at best.

      This is a must see and a keeper movie. Keeps one in suspense and on the edge of your chair until the very end. A movie with unexpected twists and turns. Most enjoyable movie all the way though.

      Without getting into spoilers, this is a fantastically paced movie that plays with your expectations and keeps you guessing for a long time. It is Thrilling and suspenseful, anchored by the best performance of Jessica Biel's career.

      A great acting job by Jessica Biel, and by Jodelle Farland. coupled with a dark enigmatic storyline ending in a compelling moral dilemma, makes this movie an extraordinary viewing experience.
