Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking site that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claimed he stole their idea, and the cofounder who was later squeezed out of the business.
Recently divorced Meg Altman and her daughter Sarah have bought a new home in New York. On their tour around the mansion, they come across the panic room. A room so secure, that no one can get in. When three burglars break in, Meg makes a move to the panic room. But all her troubles don't stop there. The criminals know where she is, and what they require the most in the house is in that very room. Written by
When Meg starts searching for a "chocolate bar" once Sarah's sugar level drops, Sarah says she had already searched in the box and had found nothing. Yet we clearly see standard U.S. Military M.R.E. (meal ready to eat) packages which include a high sugar ration (in the form of, or in addition to, a dessert with the meal itself and sugar to be used with the included instant coffee), when Sarah was first searching.

PANIC ROOM is a suspense thriller quite different from what I was expecting since I thought it would be something in the Horror genre, but no, it isn't, the plot is about a robbery that three guys try to do to a house with a panic room (I think it was the this title which induced me in error, because panic room is a protection room to the owners of the house). So, it was different from what I was expecting but I liked it anyway because it's a great thriller, very suspenseful and very well shot. The setting is always the house but it doesn't turn out boring because it has a good pace with very little slow moments. About the cinematography I enjoyed the camera work which is excellent (especially in the first hour when they shot incredible details and the camera does a "travelling effect") and the light (almost the entire film is shot with little illumination, which makes it a suspenseful dark thriller, which I use to appreciate!:). The acting is also very good. I did enjoy it and I score it 7/10.
