Movie Review: ‘The Boy’ has its hilarious moments
While coming out of the theatre, I overheard a couple talking to each other and saying, “We could have even opted for a movie like ‘Mastizaade’ instead of this”. Well, is ‘The Boy’ really THAT bad? Find out…

Star Cast: Lauren Cohan, Rupert Evans, Jim Norton and Diana Hardcastle.

Director: William Brent Bell

Producer: Matt Berenson, Roy Lee, Gary Lucchesi, Tom Rosenberg and Jim Wedaa

Claps for: Performances, Sound Effects

Slaps for: Storyline, Not being scary

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Story: Greta takes up a job as a nanny to an 8 year old boy only to discover that the boy is actually a doll, whom her employers have treated as a human since several years in order to cope with the death of their son. Things take a turn when they leave her with the doll; leading to a series of events wherein Greta realizes that the doll is alive.

Performances: Lauren Cohan is the soul of the film. She plays her part well as the girl who has had problems in the past, forms an instant attachment with the doll and later runs to save her life.

Rupert Evans has done a good job too, as the flirty grocery boy.

Diana Hardcastle is wonderfully mysterious in the little part she has got.

Direction: The movie does start on a promising note and director William Brent Bell keeps the silent and mysterious charm of the flick intact till the end. However, a horror movie is supposed to be much more than that. He could have easily done a lot with his two characters inside a house.

And what could be worse than anticipating something spine-chilling on its way but getting disappointed each and every time!

The storyline too disappoints, especially towards the end.

Combo-On-Offer: Horror + Drama

Vedict: We give the movie SLAPS.
