A gripping psychological thriller! Very tightly directed - every second of every scene is working to move the plot forward. Tiny and subtle moments of humor tucked in here and there just add to the frenetic intensity. Beautiful cinematography and editing make this movie hypnotic in a way that echoes one of its primary themes - hypnosis.
All in all, terrifically entertaining. Definitely go and see it but leave the kids with a sitter, this is not for children.

Danny Boyle rarely disappoints, but in Trance, the high-key light swirling camera moves and memories real and imagined don't help the movie's continuity. Trance is worth seeing on the big screen, but don't expect character development like the crew in Sunshine, or a city girding, end-of-the-world angst as in 28 Days Later. Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, Slumdog, all have deeper meanings, but Trance is a good mindbender, albeit more small minded than his other work.

Incredibly intelligent, it's a mind race which lets you gasping at the end. Very dense, very well conceived, it's very high level movie which can burn your brain.

Amazing, loved it.
The story, the cast, the picture, the music. Spectacular, exciting, thrilling.
You may find it a bit of a complex story as it requires a bit of mental concentration (this is for adults only) but you won't get lost and everything anyway becomes clear at the end.
Saw it 2 days ago and I'm still playing it in my head. Go go go go go....
