Conclusion: 'The Entitled' isn't a bad film by any means. It has its moments, some good fun, and it may be an interesting popcorn flick. However, it requires one to pay a lot of attention for maximum effect, and it doesn't quite hold up well under the scrutiny that comes from people actually taking note. The Blu-ray release has troubled video, good audio, and a tiny portion of extras.
Excerpt: Paul Dynan (Kevin Zeger, The Stone Angel ) is trapped in a dead end job with no way out. His mother is ill, requiring expensive medication, and the family is tapped out. Something has to give. And it does. Paul decides the solution to their problems lies with kidnapping the children of three wealthy men—Ray Liotta ( Goodfellas ), Victor Garber ( Alias ), Stephen McHattie ( The Fountain )—and holding them for $3 million ransom.
Excerpt: Paul (Kevin Zegers) is not a bad person, as he loves his family, went to school to better himself, and tries to find employment to help his family out of trying financial times. But his luck just won’t turn around. He is in extensive debt from his student loans, he can’t find work anywhere, and as if the normal bills weren’t enough, his mother’s medication is insanely expensive.
Excerpt: Paul (Kevin Zegers) has problems unbecoming of his age. His mom is gravely ill, stuck taking prohibitively expensive medication and as a result, the house is in foreclosure. He can’t find a job, is drowning in student loans, and decides to take the slightly less than easy route out: Kidnap rich kids. Isn’t that everyone’s first thought? Paul’s plans have holes though, namely the two not-yet-quite-goth kids who hate their own world.
