This is well worth watching if for nothing more than the totally unexpected twist at the end!

Too bad it took Stephen Moyer from Hbo's True Blood to make
Summer | New York City | 10/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I happened to search under "True Blood", the HBO series for any items. This movie, "Restraint" came up among other items. It looked like a good thriller so I checked it out. Stephen Moyer from True Blood is in it which was why it showed up. I'm not a fan of his so that had no influence on wanting to see it.
A young Australian couple, Ron and Dale are on the run from the police. Ron has just recently killed Dale's boss. They have no money and are looking for a place to hide out. They eventually find a very big secluded house. As they're searching the house for things to steal, there's one thing they don't know. The owner is in the house.
The owner, Andrew (Stephen Moyer), sees Dale first and before anything is said, in comes Ron, with his shotgun, barking orders and tying Andrew up.
Andrew is agoraphobic and doesn't fight back as much as one would expect.
They come up with a plan, which to not ruin the movie, I'll leave out.
As the movie progresses, the interaction between the three characters is intense, suspenseful and exciting. Looks and actions could be deceiving.
All in all, I never expected the movie to be so good, with great acting and a storyline that kept me interested the whole time.
It's too bad both actors, Travis Fimmel (Ron) and Teresa Palmer (Dale) haven't been in more movies.
Restraint entertaining on many levels
Circe | Austin, Texas USA | 01/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The movie Restraint manages to entertain on many levels--it's a thriller--who will kill who? It's a pyschological play--who's got the power in each situation and who will turn it how? It's sexy--who's going to have sex with whom? And it's all well-executed. The actors are believeable and gorgeous; the cinematography beautiful and even haunting; the dialogue cutting and concise. Having said all that, it does many things well, but nothing great. It's not scary enough to appeal to the slasher crowd; it's got too much violence to appeal to the cerebral crowd; and it doesn't have enough sex to appeal on those grounds. It's just a good movie that explores the power struggles--both physical and psychological--of three people in very bizarre circumstances."
Another good Australian movie !
Dr. Metal | 02/25/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know what it is with those Australian's and their movies, but there must be something in the water in Australia ! Because just about every Australian movie that I've seen was good to excellent, and this one here is simply another good Australian thriller. I guess the best script writers and directors along with actors do actually reside in Australia. Anyway, this is a good suspensful thriller that is more focused around the different characters of the film. Its not your average run of the mill type of thriller, especially because there is a certain amount of character development in it which is usually missing from other thrillers. Watch it cause you won't be disappointed if you're a thriller fan."
