Atom User Reviews for The Rental
No plot .... who did it and why??!
suspenseful and exciting throughout
Intense but not satisfying.
The Rental has De Palma vibes with Fincher’s cool, but lacks the former’s exploitative pleasures and the latter’s cinematic expertise. It is, however, satisfyingly composed in terms of approach, giving the audience flashes of brutality to come or shooting it from a distance, heightening the shock and lending bloodshed sharp flinching power.
It's a confident, enjoyably nasty piece of work, unnerving enough to cure your FOMO about that canceled summer vacation.
