Adequate entertainment...
21 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

While "Torn Apart" by no means is a top notch thriller, then it is still an entertaining enough movie for what it was. It didn't really hold any thrills or surprises, and it was quite predictable.

The story is about doctor Vicki Westin who finds her husband and daughter missing. A strange phone call informs her that she has 48 hours to decide who will live and who will die.

The acting in "Torn Apart" was good, given the script and material the actors and actresses had to work with. Tia Carrere did a nice job in carrying the movie most of the way.

If you enjoy thrillers then there are far better choices available. But if you are a fan of Tia Carrere then you might find some greater enjoyment in "Torn Apart".

I think that "Torn Apart" is the type of movie that you watch once and never again. It just doesn't have enough contents or leverage to support multiple viewings. For a TV movie, then "Torn Apart" is adequate entertainment for what premises it had.
