Vic & Danny kidnap Alice for money. A few twists and only one actor remains in the end. Only three actors in the whole film and all did well. With so many kidnap films I expected more or less the usual, but this one is centered on the three characters and nothing more. Refreshing.

"The Disappearance of Alice Creed" is a kidnapping movie features only three actors. A simple kidnap plan turned out to be a conflict of what they want the most. Story wise, it is good. Looks so simple but I really do appreciate how little details were used. I just can't grasp the gay thing. And I wasn't able to really understand Danny's character. I'm satisfied on Eddie Marsan's and Gemma Arterton's acting, not Martin Compston. Neat kidnapping drama. Lots of surprising scenes, i mean, twists. For me, it seems a work of an amateur, AN EXCELLENT AMATEUR.

The entire story contains only three characters, played solidly by its little known cast and the obvious lack of a large budget means that the plot must concentrate on substance rather than style which makes a nice change for a modern thriller. The limited locations and interactions make it feel quite stagy in a similar way to 44 Inch Chest but there's rather more to the story making for a more intriguing premise and it has a similar flavour to …
