Storyline

Paul and Kathy Plunk move away from Phoenix, Arizona, so that their baby daughter may grow up in the healthy Oregon. They buy a small motel in a lonesome mountain region... - it could be idyllic, but their first guests are the wanted criminals Knott and Frost, who are on flight from the police. They need money, so they assault the Plunks, force them to withdraw all their money from the bank. But the nightmare just begins: they take the Plunks and their baby with them as hostages. Their life is worth nothing to the psychopathic criminals. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Very Good Thriller
1 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this move a lot. I found the story line very good and well acted especially by Joanna Kerns. The story is not your typical family captured movie, but instead it seeks to develop more understanding of the characters, especially the family. The story follows a young family who are taken captive by two criminals, played by John Stamos and Chad lowe. Only downfall I thought was the acting of Stamos, who does not play the bad guy very well - at least in this movie. On the other hand, I was very impressed with Chad Lowe in this movie. He nicely plays the roll of the second criminal, who is very much under the control of the Stamos character. A very good movie, I highly recommend it.
