The film Close stars Noomi Rapace (What Happened to Monday, Unlocked) as the main character and can entertain those of you who like badass female characters.

Sam and Zoe’s dark past that both made this film very deep in the drama and very serious when the action scenes. The dialogue in this film has almost no element of comedy. Games Online dan Offline
Sophie Nelisse is very good at playing the character of Zoe, a spoiled unstable teenager who always gets what she wants. But the first time in his life he was in a critical position with Sam, his bodyguard. And the actress is quite skilled at conveying the feelings of a spoiled child who experiences panic in the middle of a tense action scene to the audience.
There are many actions that will keep you entertained enough when Zoe and Sam are on their way to the mining of their father’s legacy. You could say it almost feels like the first Taken movie, except that Liam Neeson’s character is replaced by a woman who is equally formidable as Noomi Rapace. However, the choreography that is displayed is still like an action movie in general. Nothing makes the scene more special than the presence of a woman, Noomi Rapace, as the performer.
Rapace is very good at playing action scenes. The character he plays is a female character who always stands back and fights back no matter how many opponents knock her down. Toughness. And these scenes are very stressful. But there were several scenes of Sam’s fights with his enemies that were of short duration and finished too fast so that the scene felt anti-climactic.
In addition to the female lead, taking a location in Morocco with the atmosphere in the middle of the desert and presenting some of the country’s culture can also be said to be a plus to bring this film to life.
The story written by Vicky Jewson and Rupert Whitaker is indeed quite predictable but the presence of a plot twist at the end of the film can make the audience surprised, and closes the film Close pretty sweetly. Behind the action scene, the film Close wants to tell how important communication to solve problems because prejudice can further complicate the already chaotic situation.
