Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There's a reasonable premise to this horror-thriller, but also something straight-to-rental about the look and feel of the whole thing.
Rotten: The heist bit is quite smartly handled, with James Franco rocking a natty moustache-and-mullet combo as a bank employee and Taryn Manning... impressively obstreperous as one of the robbers. The horror part, however, is dreadfully underpowered.
Rotten: Just doesn't stand up against the stack of intelligent indie horror films being released today.
Rotten: Ultimately, The Vault isn't silly enough to be horrendously memorable or tense enough to be effective as the genre exercise it could have been. It falls into that underdeveloped gap in the middle.
Finally a Good Horror Movie
I'm an avid horror fan and have seen pretty much everything the past few years, though probably less some of the b-movies out there. In my view, this was a very good movie. It was different, keep my attention, suspenseful and had a really nice ending. Reading my past reviews, you'll see I'm honest. See this one; and if you don't believe it's good, I think you'll atleast agree it's way better than 95.0% of the garbage on iTunes horror.
Sorry Critics, This IS A Very Good Film
Although not a fan at all of Franco and his frequently stoned look, this movie shines most notably from Clint's offspring, Francesca. Aside from a bit of inconsistency at the very end, she's a great tough as nails character and it's really great to see her in this. Well worth my purchase in my opinion and will most certainly pickup on blu once released. Kudos to everyone that worked on this!
Don't go into this vault!
This movie is not what it claims to be and it could have been so much more. The story gets really bad at the start of the second act when people who were important in the first act all of a sudden become non existent and it's okay that they aren't even a part of the story anymore. There is also very bad acting and poor story flow throughout, with the only bright spot being James Franco, but that isn't even enough for this movie. Don't rent or buy this movie.
