Priceless online movie review - Engaging story! Been thinking about this movie all week!
I was kind of nervous about watching Priceless, but it was a really good experience for me.
I was glad to see that the female lead was brave and strong, much more than just a victim in need of rescue, and I got so into the story that I was able to forget that I know the lead male actors from other work. All the actors do a great job of making the characters seem real, even if they were written as a bit too good (or bad) to be true. Honestly, some of the dialogue, especially the opening voice over, got pretty cheesy when it drifted into moral territory, but I wouldn't say this is a film just for religious people. The characters talk about God in terms of "not being alone" or "that little voice" - pretty generic terms that probably fit most people's beliefs.
I had never even considered going to see a "Christian" film in theaters before, but I am SO glad I did! I've been thinking about this movie for over a week now because some scenes just stick with you! In Priceless, camera work is careful not to show too much but still make the situations look dangerous and adequately sleazy, and since it wasn't until the next day that I realized the language was super clean, that must not have affected the authenticity of the bad guys for me.
