Surprising movie in a good way. A story really well elaborated and more, still well executed. Performances from all the cast really good but definitely the stronger is Rebecca de Mornay'. Always with the same nuts face along with a excellentSurprising movie in a good way. A story really well elaborated and more, still well executed. Performances from all the cast really good but definitely the stronger is Rebecca de Mornay'. Always with the same nuts face along with a excellent performance. Rebecca's performance was crazily good, she mixed the sadistic with calmness in a excellent form. One thing I liked, beside the characters aren't mentions for intelligence, they weren't the typical dumb teenagers, were adult people afraid and acting on under pressure and control. I found that really nice. It left the movie with a serious tone. Another thing, it has no jokes at crucial moments, it was taken very seriously, it also counted a lot. If you like violent thrillers, plus plenty of blood and tension, this will appeal you in full. A pity that it hasn't gone to the cinema, certainly deserved a chance. Expand

From the Director of Saw 2, 3, & 4 comes an even scarier film, a story that is not only brutal, but also entirely possible. Three recently released prisoners are back to their old tricks, as they have just robbed a bank and escaped a shootFrom the Director of Saw 2, 3, & 4 comes an even scarier film, a story that is not only brutal, but also entirely possible. Three recently released prisoners are back to their old tricks, as they have just robbed a bank and escaped a shoot out with the police. With no where else to go, they flee to a familiar place, their mother's house, only while they were away, she lost that house to the bank and it had been re-sold. The trio stumbles right into the new owners house warming party and quickly take them as hostages. These boys are brutal, but they aren't very smart, not knowing what the next step is, they do they only thing they can think of and call their dear old mother for advice. Mother's Day is your typical film about hostages held at bay, trying to escape the brutal hold of their captors, with one exception, Rebecca De Mornay, a veteran actress of these types of films. De Mornay's is the one who raised these monsters, but she's also the voice of reason, with a cool calm demeanor, that will send a chill down your spine. Her performance in this film is what takes a simple hostage film and turns it into something deeper, darker, and more sinister. Of course a film like this isn't without it's flaws, as it is extremely predictable. They throw in all the things you would expect to see in a film about a hostage situation, and outside of the named actors you recognize, the rest of the cast, wasn't very good. That being said, I really enjoyed the triple dynamic between mother, psychopathic children, and the hostages, aside from that, this film was pretty much forgettable. Expand
