Disquiet (2023)

Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays a man who wakes up in weird, mostly empty hospital and has to fight his way out from the weird things that keep appearing and attacking him.

I hate to say this but if you haven't figured out where this is going three minutes into the film you haven't seen enough films.

Unremarkable story arc aside, DISQUIET actually works on it's own terms. Yes we have been here before but there are some nice tweaks to the formula along the way. It also helps that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is full invested in the proceedings making this not feel like a pay check job. He's good enough that you won't mind sitting on the couch and munching popcorn for 85 minutes.

Actually what I really wish is that the script was much less obvious because this could have been a truly great film instead of just a good one.
