Kyle and Sarah Miller have it all: a huge gated house on the water, fancy cars, and the potential for romance in their relationship. He's just back from a business trip (he brokers diamonds) and their teen daughter Avery is sneaking out to a party, when four thugs in security uniforms and ski masks stage a home invasion. They want what's in the safe: cash and diamonds. Kyle stalls them, trying to negotiate for Sarah's freedom. Over the next few hours, the back stories of the four robbers (two brothers, a girlfriend, and the representative of a local drug kingpin) as well as the fault lines in Kyle and Sarah's marriage come into play. Is there room here for heroism? Written by
Production was disrupted on August 3, 2010 when it was reported that Nicolas Cage had abandoned the project as he had allegedly insisted on switching roles from Kidman's husband to the kidnapper. The role was then offered to Liev Schreiber. However, the following day Cage resumed his role as the husband. See more »
Suxamethonium IS a paralytic agent, but it has no anaesthetic or analgesic properties. The paralysis from 'sux' is so profound that respiratory muscles are paralysed - so anyone dosed is likely to die from asphyxiation. In addition, the half life of sux is pretty short - just a few minutes in normal subjects. So in summary, a character given the sux would be paralysed for a few minutes - completely aware of anything done to them, and possibly die from asphyxiation. See more »

One of the worst movies of always good Nicol Kidman and Nicolas Cage. Very mediocre movie, pretty slow developing and no tense pace. About all action goes in one place without any changes regarding drama development. Pleas of the tortured and tyranny of the robbers is about what is going on in most of the movie. But dull plot development is not the most surprising thing in this look like five days shot movie. It is an acting of a great actress Nicol Kidman. I have never seen her acting that bad. As a matter a fact, she is bringing the finest charm to every movie but in this one she looks like an actress just taught how to look hysterical most of the time and that goes for most of the scenes with her. So no, I do not hate this movie, I just felt like falling a sleep from time to time which I find very strange considering the synopsis.
