If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.

It’s fine. It's literally the definition of a fine movie. You’ve seen it before, you know every beat and outcome before the characters even do. Only question is how much escapism you’re looking for.

Hard Candy is a challenging film to experience viewing. It's discomforting, questionable, and shares a weird parallel with reality as it discusses a heavy controversial topic. It immediately immerses audiences into its unsettling universe where everyone are either perpetrators or oblivious to the main narrative. Despite focusing primarily on two characters, what mysterious events unfold among them are deeply alienating and horrific.However, even with its powerful narrative and performances, it's a complicated and vague film that expects audiences to develop their interpretations of certain outcomes than presenting them. Other issues include its sometimes disjointed cinematography, disposable minor characters, characters having an identity crisis, some misleading and miswritten scenes, and obvious missed opportunities to make a statement in exchange of simpler storytelling.It's a seemingly hard film to watch that's actually harder to chew.

Yeah the plot sounds interesting. It could be a good movie you think. But let me stop you there. This movie has no actual story line, only vaguely tells the characters. It is totally and utterly disappointing. It follows no rational progress. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the movies that talk about important social issues. These are important to raise awareness and tell the stories of the victims. But this is just not in the movie. It is sadistic for the sole purpose of being sadistic. The movie doesn't portray the social issues surrounded with child abuse. Please don't waste your time, and rate this movie 1 star for that is what it is worth. So innocent people like you and I don't have to suffer through an utterly disappointing movie just because it is rated well.Horror show!

A revenge thriller where, yes, a young teenager castrates a 30-something man. It's the climax of the film. It's all you need to know, and the only reason why you need to see this film. It's brutal, and awesome.Hard Candy is an excellent title for it, but I'd rather go with something more along the lines of.. oh, lets see... Ball-less in Seattle, Eunuch Got Mail, Nixed Nuts. That's right, I just made three castration-themed parodies of Nora Ephron titles. Somebody give me a Pulitzer.

When I first watched this film, I had no expectations so I was caught totally by surprise on how suspenseful and dark "Hard Candy" was.Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson were perfect picks for what is basically a two person psycho-drama. Page comes across, at first, as a pretty and naive youngster and Wilson portrays his usual pleasant male lead but the dark undertones kick in quite early. The fact that a teen and an adult agree to meet over the Internet is your first clue that something's amiss. Supposedly, his aim is to only take pictures, being a professional photographer.Wilson's character has made a grave mistake: behind Pages freckles and pretty smile lies a stone-cold stalker.After tricking him into allowing her to make some alcoholic drinks (and drugging him), Page then ties him up and announces her plans: she's going to get him to admit to being a sexual predator and castrate him.The tension escalates from there. The photographer nearly escapes twice but the girl seemingly has come prepared for almost anything.The main reason for Page's character's actions is she believes her captive is the killer responsible for a missing friend of hers.The best thing about the movie is the back and forth dialogue between the two characters (a good script here!).the one thing I've noticed on other sites with reviews is that a lot of people see the teen as insane and that's she got the wrong guy. I believe this is because Patrick Wilson almost always comes across as a hero/nice guy in his films. Plus, they may have not watched the film to its completion which leaves no ambiguity.One of my most favoured films of its type. Do watch it!
