The Disappearance of Alice Creed intrigues 

Tantalizing connections between the kidnappers and the kidnapped keep this film unpredictable.

The control and precision with which two criminals, played by Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston, prepare a scruffy apartment for their capture of Alice Creed (Gemma Arterton) is in direct proportion to the inevitable unravelling of their Swiss-watch plan. But just because an audience can sense what is to come, that doesn’t mean that the film goes about its business in a predictable way. Disappearance features three essentially difficult characters, but concocts a thick mire of intrigue with tantalizing connections between the trio.
