The Broken

I saw The Broken today and, as I expected, Lena Headey was brilliant in it. Such a great actor. She is always amazing to watch, even in some of the more mediocre movies she's done. The Broken had great performances all around, actually. It was very well-cast and well-directed. The script, however, could have used some work. The set-up was good and the whole story was quite intriguing. What it lacked, though, was an underlying mythology to sort of explain or even hint at why what was happening was happening. And in the horror genre, I think you really need that. Overall I enjoyed the film and was never bored but I kept hoping for a decent payoff that didn't come.
