When their daughter is abducted and taken for ransom by a gang of serial kidnappers, a young doctor and his wife find themselves held hostage while a 24-hour plan to extort their money is set into motion. Now, with time running out and the health of their asthmatic daughter at serious risk, they find themselves in a life-and-death race against the clock as the "perfect crime" begins spiraling towards an unthinkable, terrifying and deadly conclusion.
Dakota Fanning, who plays Abby (the daughter who gets kidnapped), would go on to play a kidnapped child again (Lupita Ramos) in Man on Fire (2004). See more »
In the scene where Joe hits Karen across the face with his cell phone , she is sitting in the passenger seat while he is driving. So he hits her on the left side of her face. In the next scene, he is helping her apply makeup to the bruise over her right eye. See more »
Love the beginning. The premise of the movie is set up beautifully, tightly, but a garbled ending with too many plot lines begun in the last third of the movie dooms the project. It dissipates interest when a director arbitrarily introduces motives that had not been foreshadowed. Competent actors in what is eventually a lifeless vehicle, despite the chase, collisions, smoke and noise.
