I finally got around to writing a review of the movie Obsessed that Becky and I saw on opening night down in Tucson, AZ. The Fandango website at Obsessed describes the movie as follows:
“Derek Charles (Idris Elba), a successful asset manager who has just received a huge promotion, is blissfully happy in his career and in his marriage to the beautiful Sharon (Beyoncé Knowles). But when Lisa (Ali Larter), a temp worker, starts stalking Derek, all the things he’s worked so hard for are placed in jeopardy…”

Obsessed is a modern and updated version of the 1980’s film Fatal Attraction with Michael Douglas and Glenn Close with a few twists. This time, the obsessed white woman has fallen for a successful black man who happens to be married to the beautiful Beyonce.
The film has a great plot, but it was very predictable and the acting wasn’t terrible, however it wasn’t great either. There was just something about this film that wasn’t overly exciting. There are a few plot twists and it wasn’t a bad movie, but it wasn’t great either. I think I was more excited about it from the previews than what it delivered.
Obsessed is definitely a thriller, but it’s a bit strange because of the motivation of the characters. It didn’t make a great deal of sense at times that this woman would be totally obsessed with someone she couldn’t have since he continues to shut her down. In the movie Fatal Attraction, Michael Douglas character was intimate with the woman who became infatuated with him based on physical and emotional motivation, but in this case it was harder to believe.
Inspite of its shortcomings we both enjoyed the film, but I thought it was a Rental and Becky thought it was Worth The Trip.
