Schmaltz but the right kind, mixed with a bit of suspense
17 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Maybe even a 7/10.

Danny Glover has been in so many garbage films and series that he has become a bit of an underrated actor. In this film at least he gets to be the focus, and show us some of his ability. Also the child supporting lead is not the usual vile little snot-nosed thing, instead she's quite restrained and engaging.

But overall, this film is so 'un-demanding', when really it should be an edge-of-the seat jobby. For some reason it just fails to scare.

It's not boring, it's just ... more innocuous than it should be. We watched it late at night before work, and it made almost no emotional impression whatsoever.

All of which makes it sound like a bad film!

It's not, it's got a good little story and a couple of nice twists.

You could sum it up by "I didn't mind it."
