Now we will look at similar films that have had good reviews, so we could look at each of these and chose good points and take influences for our film.
Dirty Harry - During the opening cool music while showing Clint Eastwood inspect a murder scene could be a big influence, showing different angles and shoots which we could use in our final shoot.
Silence of the Lambs - Lots of shots in this film when people are talking to one another in a POV style, for one of the characters we do not want to show to the audience giving a mysterious look on the kidnapper.
Se7en - A good and quite unique feature of Se7en is the killer not being revealed until the climax of the film, usually the killer is revealed about 3/4 of the way through in most films. Also throughout the film the audience thinks they are going to find out who the killer is but they never do until he reveals himself.
Taken - An interesting thriller which relays on an vengeful father who is trying to rescue his rebellious daughter. We can take a lot from this film as it is about a kidnapping and a fathers struggle to get his daughter back.†
