Watch Crush (2009) - Alternative Versions.
Crush brings a war hammer to the table when it comes to the idea of
'hitting every single part of the youth demographic'. It's a thriller
featuring tae kwon do championships, house sitting in a Panic Room
mansion, a sexy mystery girl and a brand new rockin' song on the
soundtrack in every second scene. The actors are young and glamorous
and so is the Perth scenery. The trouble is that all of this
rollicking-in-theory content is at the service of a story and
film-making which continually nudge at the borders of dumbness, and
which ultimately make a leap right into its crazy heart.
Julian (Chris Egan) can no longer compete in his beloved tae kwon do on
his USA home turf after a minor underage drinking scandal, so now he
has to slum it in Australia while studying architecture. With his next
big tourney approaching, Julian figures he'll get a bit of R&R in while
carrying out his new temp job of housesitting the mansion of a rich
family who are about to holiday in Paris. The dad has installed a
Sliver-like system of security cameras throughout the house, and warns
Julian that his niece might drop over while the family's away to use
the mansion's swimming pool.
Before you can say "Fatal Attraction", Anna (Emma Lung) materialises by
the swimming pool in a red bikini. She is well sultry, and about five
minutes later Julian is already having understandable fantasies of her
licking his face. This immediately creates a ton of problems he's
already got a girlfriend (Brooke Harmon), plus Anna apparently has keys
to the otherwise secure house, plus Julian is supposed to be taking it
easy before the big fight.
Development in these thrillers about obsession needs to be craftily
ratcheted up by degrees in order to keep things believable. Crush is
very shaky in this respect, moving alternately in extreme leaps or
underwhelming shuffles. Anna's behaviour as she hangs around the house
is pretty inscrutable. One scene begins with the decent threat of the
lights suddenly going out. It ends with Julian 'rescuing' his
girlfriend from a slightly regurgitating toilet.
Julian frequently has flashbacks to scenes which occurred just five
seconds earlier, another omen of bad film-making. He is seen with his
university friends in authentically Australian campus computer labs,
but his two mates are scripted and acted far more like American college
frat boys than Australians, even though they occasionally say "mate".
Combined with Julian's nationality being American, this feels like
further slight desperation to play to the international market, which I
wouldn't mind if this film was better.
Unfortunately, at the moment of potential maximum intrigue concerning
Anna's origins, a revelation occurs whose proportions are so ludicrous
that any viewer remotely cynical at this point (which I believe will be
the majority of viewers) will topple completely offside. I then
experienced the film's conclusion as dumb and embarrassing.
Chris Egan does okay as Julian, and Emma Lung wrings a few good moments
out of an impossible, ridiculously scripted part as Anna. The film's
glamour, high production values and unpaid-off hints of intrigue
actually make it pretty easy to watch, even through some overbearing
faults and naffness, but the finale is irredeemable. I think the real
reason Crush invites derision is that it goes all out to be a rousing
cross-market genre piece, yet for all its heavy-handedness, doesn't
pull it off, and ends up prompting jokey cynicism instead.
