A married woman who is on an anniversary getaway trip with her husband unexpectedly finds herself handcuffed to her dead husband's body. She must fight to survive and outsmart two invaders who want to break into a safe in the house and dish out some payback for what she did years ago.
Till Death manages to shake off some pacing issues in its first thirty minutes, grip the attention of the viewer and explode into a nail-biting finale.
Starring Megan Fox in the lead role, the film sees her character Emma grudgingly agree to go with her husband on a getaway trip during their marriage anniversary.
Emma is hiding a secret and unknown to her, her spouse knows and has hatched the perfect plan to make sure she really suffers for it. He shoots handcuffs himself to her and shoots himself in the head, opening the door to a long day in which Emma must battle the surviving cold and the determined men who come after her.
I had issues with Fox's acting early as it seemed like she was forcing herself to play the part. The actor who plays her husband can't quite decide if he wants to use an English accent or an American one.
After being bored for more than 30 minutes following the start of the film, things finally got interesting close to the forty-minute nark and from then onwards, it was full-throttle fun.
The suspense works well enough to sustain the interest of the viewer, and the antagonist has a really menacing presence that makes him compelling. His accomplice however makes some irrational choices in the course of the film, suddenly growing a conscience and deciding to protest when things begin to get out of hand.
The conclusion is predictable but thrilling and by the end of it, the main character would have earned your respect.
Till death is a pretty decent film that offers the needed entertainment. It isn't anything close to spectacular but movie lovers without high hopes will find it worth watching.
