Did You Know?

Audio/visual unsynchronized: Much of the dialog doesn't match the actors lips movements. Examples: when the girl says "don't tell me I just slept with a security guard" and the other actors lines when LDP meets him in the truck.See more »

Uninspired movie about human trafficking. Acting is so bad I didn't care about the missing girls. I felt bad about that. I say C, 16 May 2011
Author: Tony Heck ( from United States

What would you do to expose the truth? When a security guard (Phillips) stumbles on a woman that is part of a human trafficking ring he tries to save her. When she goes missing he devotes everything he has to find her. This is another hard movie to review. It was very, very flat and a little boring through most of it. The last 20 min picked up and the final 5 min will make you so mad that you will want to know how much they are saying is true. The acting is not that good and if there ever was a movie that makes you feel little or no connection to the characters, this is it. The subject matter is hard to deal with, and again the ending will infuriate you to the point of wanting to throw something at the TV. This is a movie I would not recommend, but the ending is so powerful that you should watch for the ending if nothing else. Hard to sit through, but worth it. Because of the ending...I give it a C.

Would I watch again? - No, I would not. But if someone else is watching it I would want to see their reaction to the ending.

*Also try - Elephant White & Out Of Reach
