Jessica Martin (Kim Basinger) is a high school science teacher and mother whose peaceful life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped from her home by five unknown assailants and taken to a mysterious location.
Fearing for her life and completely in the dark as to her abductors' motives, Jessica manages to patch together a shattered telephone and secretly place a call to an unknown number in a last-ditch attempt to save herself and her family. Ryan (Chris Evans), the carefree young man who answers the panicked call, suddenly finds himself Jessica's last hope.
What the critics are saying:
"It's the classic Hitchcock 'wrong man' set-up, pulled off with wit, energy, and a healthy sense of the ridiculous."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"It's an honest, unpretentious, well-made B picture with a clever, silly premise, a handful of sly, unassuming performances and enough car chases, decent jokes and swervy plot complications to make the price of the ticket seem like a decent bargain."- A. O. Scott, The New York Times"The picture has a low-stakes, cop-show vitality to it; it doesn't pretend to be more than the sum of its parts."- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »
