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.

Composer Brian Tyler's soundtrack involved actual car part noises. Tyler claims that many filmmakers have since come to him and asked him to do another score similar to Brake's, even though many laughed at the idea of an experimental score utilizing car parts. See more »
With short wave radios, the person speaking must press a button to engage the microphone to broadcast, and cannot receive signal while the button is depressed. In other words, only one person can speak at a time. This is why people say "over" when they have finished speaking-- to indicate that they have finished taking their turn. It is not possible to interrupt someone while they are broadcasting, as is depicted in the movie several times. See more »
Keeps you interested up to the end but unfortunately not the best ending
I must say I liked the movie. Would I watch it again? No. Up to the very end the movie was very interesting and it has been thus far - by my standards one of the best movies that you see 1:20mins only one actor acting.
Acting was good to great. Special attention was given to verbal communications to convey meaning and a big thumbs up for that.
Cinematography and editing was very good, too. It does not get boring or repetitive and the movie maintains an edge right close to the end. Very clever script actually.
I would spoil the movie if I continue to speak about the ending but If you haven't read many reviews (that could spoil the end) and like mystery flick I would recommend this movie.
7/10 for the clever movie but loses some point for the ending.
