In the scene right before Karen screams about the pillow being washed, the little girl and her father are sitting at the table eating breakfast. The little girl tells her father that she doesn't like bananas. You can clearly tell that the little girl messed up and said something else causing her to laugh and break out of character. See more »
...seems to have enraged some viewers of this film. The bad guy is really bad. Guess what, they're like that in the real world too. There are plenty of bad guys out there who have no redeeming qualities and do laugh at the system, assuming it will never be able to really punish them. I found this movie very believable and thought the acting was terrific and the climax very satisfying. It was nice to see something come out of Hollywood that wasn't skewed in perspective by the left coast that produced it. Anybody who thinks Robert Doob as a character is too one-dimensional to be believable has never met a violent criminal in the flesh.
