Seven years after an ill-fated bank heist, convicted murderer Billy gets transferred to a prison in another state, opening a window for his lover and partner-in-crime to help him escape. Once Billy is free, the duo drives in the direction of the hidden loot from their last job. But when they arrive at the spot, they realize they're about to come face to face with their brutal past.
Hide starts off as a "Bonnie and Clyde" influenced road movie but as it moves a long it takes a much more strange and dark turn. There is a lot going on in this film and it jumps around a lot but if you pay attention it isn't that hard to follow. The ending might leave many of you confused as to what you just watched but the clues are there if you follow the film closely enough. I am not going to go into details because if I do it will surely ruin the film for anyone that reads this review and wants to see the movie. I can say that what starts off as just another flick about two lunatic lovers who think they can kill,steal and do whatever else they want into a film that is refreshingly original and rewarding if you stick with it till the end. Rachel Miner and Christian Kane both did a terrific job playing these crazed lovers and had good chemistry together. The cinematography was breath-taking and the musical score really helped set the mood as well. I honestly do not think this is going to be a film for everyone simply because it takes so many different turns and the end is such a shock that not many are going to get it. But if you like a film that dares to be different and challenges the viewer a bit then I think you will find this as enjoyable as I did. No movie is without flaws and I think Hide could of benefited from a little better writing so not to confuse the audience as much as it does but over-all I feel it deserves to be seen for not only the wonderful cast but the originality it brings as well.
