Interesting premise. Terrible execution. This is a James Franco trap. [Full review in Spanish].
March 30, 2019
Not much makes sense in this haphazardly plotted dud.
February 22, 2019
Ultimately, the film is not frightening enough to keep you up at night, nor ingenious enough to make you wonder about the twist - and not even bad enough to make it good.

The Vault is a strange but successful mixture, a heist thriller-turned-horror movie.

...the only good thing is that we know it will end. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 15, 2018
...an easily forgettable film. [Full Review in Spanish]

... the film's problems appear when [director Dan] Bush needs to close the two narrative lines of his premise... [Full review in Spanish]

The Vault has an interesting premise, but its clumsy execution brings it down quickly, and settles on a ridiculously twisted ending.

The Vault is one of those films that have no right to be as good as they are, given that it is that most unlikely of genre-defying hybrids -- the bank robbery film with added, er... supernatural chills.

Bush certainly shows a lot of potential with this film and it is tautly-edited with an effective set-up of the heist in progress.
September 11, 2017
It's not a hopeless idea, but the film makes a hash of it. In aiming for stylish gore and a clever plot twist, it writes cheques its clumsy storytelling skills can't cash.

Though it could do with being weirder and wilder, this high-concept mash-up - what if crooks robbed a haunted bank? - features fine work from a brace of rising stars.
September 10, 2017
This is all great fun and as the heist begins the robbers are revealed to be a charismatic bunch with a very interesting dynamic.

There's little to like in this undercooked "horror" about three siblings who stage a bank heist and run into trouble when they encounter a haunted vault.
September 8, 2017
This low-budget combination of heist thriller and horror saga might have an intriguing concept, but lacks the narrative dexterity that a successful genre mashup requires.
September 8, 2017
There's a reasonable premise to this horror-thriller, but also something straight-to-rental about the look and feel of the whole thing.
September 8, 2017
Director Dan Bush gets strong performances from Franco and Eastwood while letting the eerie creepiness of his story shine thru.
September 7, 2017
The heist bit is quite smartly handled, with James Franco rocking a natty moustache-and-mullet combo as a bank employee and Taryn Manning... impressively obstreperous as one of the robbers. The horror part, however, is dreadfully underpowered.
September 7, 2017
Andrew Shulkind does a solid job of lighting Jessee J Clarkson's creepy sets. But the direction is manipulative and smug.
September 7, 2017
Psychologically risible and paranormally inconsistent heist horror gives us not a single character to like or root for, or even to cheer dying.
