This is one of those films that starts out great, keeps you intrigued, but then falls apart near the end. The premise is good, the acting is good, the direction is good and then we get to the end.
One expects in a film called, “Trance”, that things will happen that are not real, or characters will find that things are not as they seem, and the viewer expects to be tricked at times. All of these are present, just overdone. When the film ends, the viewer is not quite sure what happened other than the character you expect to come out on top does.
This should have been a four or five cigar movie that left me thinking. Instead, we have a three cigar film that left me saying, “really?”.
