Storyline

After a car crash, Jamie, 30, comes to, locked in a room at a factory. Her son, a diabetic, is missing. A man wearing a ski mask comes into the room and tells her that she must help him find her husband who has stolen millions from his boss. He says her husband is a killer and a drug trafficker. Jamie is certain it's a mistake. Her captor insists she help him or lose her son. He brings her audio tapes made in their apartment demanding she figure out how her husband was communicating with an accomplice. She has only 12 hours before she and her son will die. Can she force herself to believe that she has been betrayed - and then what? There's no way out, yet she resolves to save her son. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Keeps you captive for the entire time.
3 August 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

I am not familiar with any of director Amanda Gusack's other work but, after seeing this fantastic little thriller, I hope she gives us a few more decent movies in future because she deserves to get at least a little bit of notice.

Melissa George stars as the woman kidnapped and held captive after an engineered car crash that sees both her and her young son (a diabetic) in the clutches of some very bad men. Her son is being held in a separate room and his safety is tied to Melissa's character actually helping the baddies figure out where her husband has gone with a whole load of money that they claim he has ripped off of them. But is her husband capable of such a double life? Can she find out information that will keep her son safe? There is more to find out as the plot develops but it's never less than interesting.

What was so impressive about this little thriller is the way it began with it's basic concept and then didn't try to become anything else along the way. There are twists and turns tied into the plot line but at a time when every other little film like this would seem to morph into a sub-Saw movie or a Tarantino-esquire, smartass, blackly comic outing this film resolutely sticks to what it is: an enjoyable, lean thriller centred around a woman confused and scared who's only aim is to ensure the survival of her son.

Melissa George is excellent in the lead role but everyone does well with their screen time, including the likes of Oded Fehr, Donald Adams, Christian Campbell and the regal Alice Krige. As the film centres on the relationship between captive and captor it's almost a two-hander set in one place for the majority of the time but the movie never feels too stagey or limited with this, you're just far too busy being kept on the edge of your seat with tension and revelations in a little gem that is perfectly paced and well-executed.

See this if you like: Panic Room, Cohen & Tate, Taken.
