The opinions I share are my own.

THE MOVIE — 3¾/5

Plot Synopsis: Emma (MEGAN FOX) is stuck in a stale marriage to Mark (EOIN MACKEN) and is surprised when he whisks her away to their secluded lake house for a romantic evening on their 10th anniversary. But everything changes the next morning when she finds herself cuffed to Mark who kills himself. Trapped and isolated in the dead of winter, Emma learns this is only the beginning of Mark’s twisted plan… and to survive she must fight the hired killers (CALLAN MULVEY, JACK ROTH) coming to finish her off and steal $200,000 worth of diamonds locked in a safe.

Quick Hit Review: Till Death is one of those films with a simple concept and it’s a thriller featuring only a few characters and primarily one location. I kind of enjoyed this film for its simplicity and surprisingly Megan Fox delivers a fine performance for a limited role (as an psychologically abused housewife who had an affair). It’s  an emotional and physically heavy role and although there is suspension of disbelief that a woman of her size is able to drag a guy probably 180-200 lbs as much as she does, even factoring in adrenaline. Even so, there is enough good thrills to be had and having it in a remote setting gives it a little claustrophobia.

The supporting cast includes Eoin Macken as an a-hole attorney who has orchestrated the entire ordeal over his wife’s affair with a colleague (played by Aml Ameen), Callan Mulvey (Batman v. Superman) as Emma’s attacker from the past, released on parole and Jack Roth as the technologically savvy brother there to break into the safe to retrieve diamonds. Mulvey seems to always play a villain and is one-note but effective while Roth is the more conscience-minded character.

There’s really not much more to Till Death. It’s simplistic for sure but being less than 90-minutes does make for an easy yet still suspense-filled viewing with Fox showing she does have talent when the script is at least half respectable.



The Making of Till Death (6:27) is a basic behind-the-scenes featurette with some sound bites by the cast and crew.


VIDEO – 3¾/5

Till Death comes to Blu-ray presented with a 2.35 widescreen aspect ratio and given a 1080p high-definition transfer. Although detail on this wasn’t half bad and colors a bit tamped down considering the wintery/snowy setting, I did notice quite a bit of banding in the opening and at the end, where colors didn’t quite transition very smoothly.

AUDIO – 3¾/5

The disc comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 which is fairly well rounded offering up clear dialogue (or in the case of Fox, grunting as she drags a corpse around the house and outside) as well as the score and a couple of songs. Ambient noises are decent enough making the way from the front and rear channels. Nothing amazing but adequate enough.



Overall, Till Death is a simple but still highly entertaining little survival-thriller featuring a good performance from Megan Fox showing she has what it takes, with the right script, to be a lead.
