we get Tom Berenger and not much else
7 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Tom Berenger is a crazed man who kidnaps two girls in Oregon triggering the Amber Alert system.

He's a veteran actor, and he's able to give a creepy threatening performance.

The girls are played by Britt McKillip and Genevieve Buechner. Britt showed some acting skills. But mostly both girls cried a lot.... I mean a whole lot.

The whole movie is either an advertisement for the Amber Alert, or a really lazy writing assignment for a film school. There really isn't much there. The only drama comes from the girls and Tom Berenger. Nothing else is really that interesting. Don't expect anything more than a simple TV movie.
