A Secret Service Agent is held captive in the trunk of a car and endures mental and physical torture as terrorists attempt to extract information for their plot against the President of the United States.
What appears to be a random kidnapping becomes something more sinister when Secret Service Agent Jeremy Reins discovers he's being used as a pawn in a terrorist plot. Watching the clock tick down to an unknown catastrophe, Jeremy is forced by his captors to listen to the outside world on the brink of collapse, knowing that the only way to save the people he loves is to divulge a secret that he has sworn to protect.

Jeremy Reins mentions that he is in a trunk of a car, likely a long car with a large-cylinder engine due to the large size of the trunk. He wasn't wrong; the car used by the filmmakers was a 1998-2002 second generation series Ford Crown Victoria (or "Crown Vic") four-door sedan with a 4.6 Liter SOHC Modular V8 engine. The car was so chosen for its large and spacious trunk, and because the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor was also a standard vehicle used by the United States Capitol Police at the time, since the terrorists were pretending to use a police car. This is further evidenced when Jeremy escapes the trunk at the end of the film, the car is a Crown Victoria. See more »
The White House postcard appears to be crooked and bent when Jeremy reads it for the second time, but it's in perfect condition when the box is filled up with liquid. See more »
Stephen Dorff is a Secret Agent, and has a choice to buy his ex-wife's freedom against top secret information. Will he break his oath?
What a roller coaster movie!! I thoroughly enjoyed it from the first frame. Sitting at the edge of my seat throughout the movie; WOW!! Stephen Dorff performed very well as Agent Jeremy. He is a hostage in the trunk of a car, and the terrorists are asking for information pertaining to top secret information about the President. All the time throughout the movie, I kept on debating, should he or shouldn't he give up the information. Married, but now separated, his wife Molly was also taken hostage, and her release depended on his willingness to give out this information. A couple of really unexpected twists towards the end totally threw me off; What a surprise was that!!The last 15 minutes or so is so very crucial to understand the story. This is when viewers would start their own debates about shouldn't he? Wouldn't he? and Couldn't he? Yes people are going to be talking about this film for a long time to come. Enjoy.
