‘Missing’ Review: A Fun Movie with Lots of Unexpected Twists
Missing is a mystery thriller film written and directed by Nick Johnson and Will Merrick. It stars Storm Reid, Joaquim de Almeida, Ken Leung, Amy Landecker, Daniel Henney, and Nia Long.
After her mother and boyfriend go missing while on their trip to Colombia, June Allen turns to technology to aid in her quest to find her mother.
The film mainly takes place in the form of apps and various tech gadgets, which were successfully conveyed. It can be a bit overwhelming, however, when you are trying to pick up on various messages throughout (such as, when there’s an area for comments, etc.)
The film mainly focuses on Storm Reid’s character, June, and she had a really great range. Even though her character started off a bit bratty, she grew throughout the film, and you end up rooting for her.
Missing takes a bit to get going, but once it does, it doesn’t stop. It has a lot of unexpected twists and turns, that ends on an equally surprising note. If you enjoyed its predecessor, Searching, you will definitely enjoy Missing.
