THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Brittany Murphy is Mary Walsh, and on this day she is going with her boyfriend of 4 months for a procedure at the hospital. Perhaps I should have been wary early when they discussed it as ACL surgery and he would be there for about an hour. Anyway, after several hours she still isn’t notified in the waiting room, then when she goes to find him the hospital has no record of his ever being there. Dean Cain is her boyfriend, Kevin Peterson. It is hard to believe that he starred as Superman in the “Lois and Clark” TV series almost 20 years ago. Mimi Rogers is the hospital administrator Victoria Markham, who only serves as a counterpoint for Peter Bogdanovich.
“Abandoned” is a diverse introspective detailed life of a character torn, inspired with moments of passion and an elegant portrayal of a woman lost in a world of chaos on her own – becoming the person she has evolved into. Blossoming with a glowing understanding as she reaches new realms and portrays a fresh, yearning, eager woman who boasts the ability to reign in her new empire as a loyal, dedicated and honorable woman blindly seeking a loved one only doing what she would and should do.
The Blu-Ray comes with a trailer as its only special feature. The A/V Quality is rather strong for a DTV feature, which leads me to believe that it was intended for a theatrical bow. The dialogue is pretty weak throughout most of the scenes, but the transfer holds up well. The 1080p visuals show a large field of depth and it helps to add to the creepy atmosphere. In the end, I can’t see anyone going past a basic rental with this title.
