The Desperate Hour (2022, D: Noyce) S: Naomi Watts



Unfolding in real time, THE DESPERATE HOUR is a “riveting and pulse pounding” thriller from award-winning director Phillip Noyce. Recently widowed mother Amy Carr (Academy Award®-nominee Naomi Watts) is doing her best to restore normalcy to the lives of her young daughter and teenage son in their small town. As she's on a jog in the woods, she finds her town thrown into chaos as a shooting takes place at her son's school. Miles away, on foot in the dense forest, Amy desperately races against time to save her son.

Starring Naomi Watts, Colton Gobbo, Sierra Maltby
Directed by Phillip Noyce

Release Date: In select US theaters + on VOD starting 02/25/22

I like the idea of the movie but seeing Naomi Watts running through the woods for two hours doesn’t sound interesting to watch at all. It sounds like someone needed an idea to film during COVID quarantine and thought having the main character alone for the majority of of the movie was a good solution.

Using the plot device of racing against the clock because you took a long jog seems sillier the more I think about it.

What is she going to do to "save her son" during a school shooting? Is she a good guy with a gun?

Ughh. Was hoping this would be decent. Haven’t seen much with Naomi Watts in a while. Was looking forward to it.

It might suck but it has Watts and will watch anything with her though her peak hotnees was in the early 2000's and early 2010's.

It was mostly her running in the woods talking on a cellphone and maybe a 1 hr and 24 minute run time which is not bad at all.

Apple must have loved all the free PR they got with her Iphone.

I did not think it was awful and she probably gave one of her best performances in a long time though she looked different and maybe it was the makeup and hope it was not bad plastic surgery.

Now after the Texas shooting it made it more scary to watch.
