The Woman In Black movie poster

For everyone who miss with a cast from Harry Potter will see Daniel Radcliffe as a main actor in this movie & direct by James Watskin. Based on the same horor genre novel tittle, The Woman in Black (1983) by Susan Hill & adapted into a stage play also television film is about a young solicitor, Arthur Kipps, who is try to clean up the house’s files & sell it. In the middle of that he meets a ghost of the woman who is always terrorize the village and himself. It was released in the United States & Canada on February 3rd, 2012 and in UK on February 10th, 2012 also the premiere launch in Paris.

In this movie,Daniel show his maturity & left the ‘Harry Potter’ image, it’s seen from when he acts as a young father and deals with the problem in that movie, but sadly it’s too young to act as Arthur Kipps. The silent dominate the movie plus some surprising cliche scene from the ghost, the dialog just in some scenes where it takes outside the haunted house. And actually, this film has a little twist that will make us wonder a little bit.  These are some review & critics :

“Radcliffe, for his part, carries off the role of Arthur with reasonable aplomb. If the 22-year-old actor seems a little young to be playing a solicitor and single father whose wife died in childbirth four years earlier, his performance is sturdy and self-sufficient enough, at least, to banish thoughts of Hermione and Hogwarts. He’s all grown-up.”  – Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post

Daniel Radcliffe on The Woman In Black

“Schooled in the art of the quiet boo, [Director James] Watkins fills the film with squeaking doors and floorboards, pools of black, long silences and an assortment of moldering toys. Less gore is more here, and what a relief. ‘The Woman in Black’ isn’t especially scary, but it keeps you on edge, and without the usual vivisectionist imagery.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“The work Radcliffe does here is primarily reactive. It’s also quite good. I’d say he’s on his way as a post-Potter entity, and ‘The Woman in Black’ deserves a stateside audience. I only wish Watkins had done without the ‘WHUUNNNGGGG!!!!’ sound effects whenever somebody or something suddenly appears in frame, further racking the nerves of our ectoplasmically beset hero.” — Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune
