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.

Goofs

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 »

Stephen Dorff turns in the performance of a lifetime in this thriller
18 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

When I read a synopsis of this movie, it looked like a straight to video knockoff of the overrated 2010 film "Buried" starring Ryan Reynolds. Another movie where a person wakes up in a coffin under mysterious circumstances? Really? But the similarities (!) end there.

This is an incredibly well executed movie. Stephen Dorff has come a hell of a long way since Blade and turns in a gritty, absolutely convincing performance. His acting, combined with a tight script and a solid score, maintain tension throughout the film.

This is going to be one of the sleeper hits of 2012 and will make a great dark horse next awards season.
