Number of Times Seen – 1 (26 May 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A young girl is kidnapped and her parents are held hostage in two separate locations until the ransom is paid
My Take on it – I was quite excited to see this when I saw the cast; Kevin Bacon, Charlize Theron, Stuart Townsend, Courtney Love and Dakota Fanning.
It started off with a great premise that had a lot of potential, but it soon turned into a generic thriller that was just boring. Was quite disappointed that it wasn’t better.
Kevin Bacon and Charlize Theron both stand out here in roles that they usually don’t do. Bacon is the kidnapper with the plan and Theron as the doting mother and wife who becomes his hostage thru this ordeal.
Bottom Line – OK thriller, stellar cast, hoped it would be better.
Rating – BAFTA worthy
