Movie Watch: Secret Window

Johnny Depp movies are trending like crazy this week, so I figured I’d watch one I’d never seen. In retrospect, I should’ve chosen a different film… Secret Window was seriously underwhelming. While Johnny’s performance was fine for what it was, I’ve never been into the whole “delusional protagonist” trope. In this case, it was downright predictable, certainly not shocking or scary.

What would’ve been a great twist? If the wife, Amy, had been behind it all. Instead, she’s a bland, unwitting victim, just another unimaginative cliché.

That said, I enjoyed the setting/production values, and the acting was decent. It wasn’t a terrible movie, just a bit boring from my perspective.
