Afonso Poyart (2015)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Anthony Hopkins stars as a clairvoyant enlisted by two FBI agents (Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish) to stop a serial killer (Colin Farrell). Almost flaunting the influence of films such as Seven, the film takes dark and creepy turns, offering a bleak exploration of what such a power can mean to those who have it. Director Afonso Poyart throws the camera around, creating an unsettling mood for most of the movie, even if that visual style is at the expense of some of the deeper issues in the film. Hopkins is on familiar ground, but is often captivating, especially during a heartbreaking speech to a bereaved mother. Farrell arrives late but makes a big impression, which is more than can be said for Morgan and Cornish, who are both decidedly lifeless. While ultimately getting bogged down in visuals and clichés, Solace is a chilling supernatural thriller that takes its viewer on a sombre but satisfying journey.


A psychic is recruited by the FBI to help them track down an elusive serial killer before he can strike again. The case takes a psychologically dangerous turn when he realises that the murderer he is searching for has mental powers of his own. Crime thriller, starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
