    Illustrates the problem of class mobility with a dark, troubling premise that holds a harsh light up to our own assumptions and expectations. show more

    Spits out enough scares and twists to maintain our interest, but the film's psycho-sociological layer is almost as cheesy and unconvincing as its low-rent action scenes. show more

    The more pressing affliction in Pascal Laugier's film is the absence of chills, logic and coherence. show more

    This is really good movie that kept your attention from start to the end. I Found myself rooting for The Tall Man and Jessica Biel because they did this for the children who were being raised in poor or not good places so that they can have a better life in new places. You have to watch this to understand why they had done that.

    There\'s a part of the movie where you\'re just not sure who the villain is. In some movies that\'s cool and exciting, but the confusion just lasted too long in this one. This movie was made well and will keep your attention throughout, but since it addresses a moral issue, viewers\' opinions after watching it could differ wildly. I didn\'t like it because it mirrored a personal experience of mine. I\'ll give The Tall Man one extra star for making me think about it even after I\'ve turned off the television.
