Derivative and unpleasant, but sometimes suspenseful kidnapping thriller
25 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Amy Carlson (looking fine) is the woman in charge of a bank's security system. Two dirty cops (played by the slightly washed-up duo of Judd Nelson and Thomas Ian Griffith) kidnap her daughter and a friend to force her to open the safety deposit box of one of her bank's clients and give to them its content. Meanwhile, an investigation about police corruption in the department is already underway....This derivative (think of it as a cross between "Trapped" (which I have seen) and "Don't Say A Word" (which I have not)) thriller lingers too long on the anguish and fear of the desperate mother and the kidnapped daughter, which gives it a rather unpleasant taste. Still, the experienced director manages to get some suspense out of it in places, and Carlson gives a very convincing performance - I'd say she offers more to the film than the film offers to her.
