The Woman In Black

File:Woman in black ver4.jpgNow that Harry Potter is officially done, the actors who were at the 10 year production of one of the greatest franchise in movie history has to move on and grow as actors. Daniel Radcliffe's first post-Potter film, The Woman in Black, is one of the anticipated films of 2012 as we see Radcliffe without the wand, the scar and the glasses which made him a sensation.

Based on a 1983 novel by Susan Hill, The Woman in Black is a mystery thriller about the mystery of the woman who seemed to carry a curse on children. When Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) was assigned to handle the estate of a client, he encounters various paranormal experiences and uncovers a secret from the town where the Manor is situated. Children are committing suicide which believed to be the work of the Woman in Black as a revenge to those who took her son. With this, Kipps unraveled the root of evil not knowing he is casting his own curse to himself and his son.

The movie is a success in eengaging the audience to the story as it makes the viewers be more curious on what was going on. However, the plot seemed to be very common especially if you are used to watch Pinoy movies. The plot where the mother seeks revenge from other people who seeks revenge from other people after undergoing a very traumatic experience is so Pinoy. There are a few scenes that can startle but there was nothing special to it.

Daniel Radcliffe may still have the hangover of playing Harry Potter and still he retains the usual blank staress that he has for the past 10 years. Although there are some improvements, I'd say, the room is so full of space.

The Woman in Black is a movie to watch yet this one would never sustain a longer shelf life in the memories of its viewers.

GRADE: C+
