Hide and Seek Review

I just watched the 2005 Robert De Niro horror film, Hide and Seek, and it sucks really hard. Now I will say that I enjoyed the performance of Robert De Niro for about the first 45 minutes of the movies. He seemed like the average parent who was grieving over the death of his wife while caring for his daughter who is played by Dakota Fanning. Suddenly the story takes a “shocking” turn when it is revealed in a pretty dumb plot twist. Throughout the entire movie, De Niro’s daughter has an imaginary friend named Charlie. Charlie is basically a psychopath who is forcing De Niro’s daughter to play Hide and Seek. In the plot twist, it is revealed that Robert De Niro is Charlie and he has split personality disorder, similarly to Gollum from The Lord of the Rings. This brings up a lot of questions in my mind. Why didn’t Fanning realize that her imaginary friend was her father? Is she just an idiot who has short term memory loss? Did she really need to brought back to reality by the man who was basically trying to KILL HER? Whatever, the last 45 minutes of the movie is basically Robert De Niro chasing Dakota Fanning around the house and through a cave while some woman tries to make him snap out of his trance. The ending is where Robert De Niro is closing in on Fanning inside the cave when the woman comes out and shoots him. Then in somewhat of another plot twist ending, Fanning lives with the woman now and she is drawing a picture of the two together. She draws herself with two heads to show that she probably has split personality disorder too. I’ll show a clip
