Stunningly Realistic
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie "got it right!" Every detail was taken care of. Hospital setting? CHECK. Violent gunman? DOUBLE CHECK. Extras that seem genuinely frightened and terrifyingly true-to-life? TRIPLE CHECK! This movie runs so smoothly it seems like ONE TAKE!

Edge of your seat excitement guaranteed to wet your cheeks.

Warning for younger viewers: There are some really shocking moments during this movie, including one disturbing scene with an extra bolting out of a closet towards the camera. The job she does is almost too much, the intensity almost made me vomit. I guess this is the job of these movie people, but sometimes during the film I just had to wonder if my anxiety was worth it!
