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

Larsan (Tom Berenger) is a dangerous armed drifter. He gets out of prison and confronts his ex-wife looking for his daughter Kaylee. The car breaks down. He carjacks 18 year old Debra (Genevieve Buechner) leaving her friend Sandy (Jessica Parker Kennedy) behind. 17 year old Katie (Britt McKillip) storms out of home with boyfriend Pete. Larsan kidnaps Katie. Pete is able to call the cops. Chief Geiger (Torri Higginson) activates the Amber Alert system.

Tom Berenger is a veteran actor, and he's able to give a threatening performance despite some cheesy talking-to-himself. Britt McKillip shows 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 here. The only drama comes from the girls and Tom Berenger. Nothing else is really that interesting. Don't expect anything more than the simplest TV movie-of-the-week.
