Goofs

Just before Kelley's being kidnapped, she's having a call with her iPhone. It displays the keypad, which (including the green "make call" button) is not visible during a regular call. The light sensor wouldn't allow to show the display either, when the iPhone is placed just next to the ear. See more »

Quotes

Shooter: I have brought the nine of you here for a reason. Your survival depends on you figuring out what that reason is. I will leave you alone for your discussions but I will return every ten minutes and kill one of you until you've figured it out or until you are all dead. You have ten minutes.

Surprisingly Good Mystery, Holds Your Attention
2 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Communication is the key to the survival for nine strangers who have been kidnapped by a masked gunman and told that one of them will die every ten minutes until they discover how they are all connected. Who of the nine lives and who dies?

I think it is safe to say that this film's biggest selling point is star Melissa Joan Hart, who also serves as a producer. I think it is also safe to say that she is the worst actor in this picture, being easily outdone by a handful of unknowns and Alec Baldwin's chubby brother Daniel.

The film has similarities to other films, notably "Saw 2" (a group of people all connected by a common, unknown bond) and "House of 9" (nine people -- including a priest -- in an enclosed location, getting killed one by one). This made me hesitant and have doubts, but I was soon shown the error of my ways. Rather than watch half-heartedly while doing other things, I had my eyes glued for 90 minutes to the screen. I was, frankly, impressed (though, again, Hart was a terrible casting choice).

I have to take issue with the glaring plot holes. The idea is that nine people have to find out what connects them. Once you find out what that thing is (and I will not reveal it here), it seems odd to me that the killer would know about the people's involvement in that thing. Some of them, yes, but most no. I guess I have to just let it ride...
