Movie Review: ‘Obsessed’

By Esmeralda Aguilar Posted June 3, 2009

Fanatical is just one word to describe the “Obsessed”. A movie filled with climactic moments, “Obsessed” is a gripping thriller and suspense movie with cast members such as Beyonce Knowles (Shanon Charles), Idris Elba (Derek Charles), and Ali Larter (Lisa Sheridan).

The Charles’ perfect life is suddenly turned upside down with the arrival of temp worker, Lisa Sheridan. Lisa’s obsession is apparent from the opening of the film and her obsession only continues to grow until the ending of the film.

What’s more, Derek Charles’s obvious lack of interest in her plays a huge part of this movie as well.

While this movie can seem quite cheesy at times, the morals derived from the plot are worth the watch. Today’s society upholds scandals, so a movie that supports marriage and fidelity is a nice change. Besides, watching Beyonce get in a fight is just plain entertaining.

The movie is rated PG-13 for some suggestive material and language. Go ahead, watch “Obsessed”, you know you want to.
