The Vault had an interesting enough premise and respectable cast led by Francesca Eastwood who is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, alongside the always entertaining James Franco, but unfortunately was poorly executed.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Two estranged sisters (FRANCESCA EASTWOOD, TARYN MANNING) hatch a scheme to rob a bank to save their brother (SCOTT HAZE). The heist begins smoothly, but mayhem soon ensues when the defiant manager (JAMES FRANCO) sends them to a basement-level vault where something truly evil dwells.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5


The only feature is the film’s trailer (1:56).

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5


MVD Visual opens The Vault on Blu-ray, presented with a 2.39 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture quality isn’t anything special, but it is a bright looking movie before going to darker elements later where black levels are decent enough. Detail is relatively sharp and there weren’t any noticeable instances of artifacts or aliasing.

AUDIO – 4.0/5


As per other MVD releases, these only come with Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks (as well as 2.0) and although DTS-HD MA or TrueHD would be preferable, as it is, doesn’t sound all that bad. Dialogue comes through with good clarity and even the thriller/horror parts output some satisfactory depth.

 


OVERALL – 2.75/5


Overall, The Vault had an interesting enough premise and respectable cast led by Francesca Eastwood who is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, alongside the always entertaining James Franco, but unfortunately was poorly executed. That said, it’s probably worthy of a rental.
