Storyline

It's New Year's Eve in New York City and everyone's getting ready to party. Watching, waiting, a man called Hollander has a different kind of party in mind. Alone in her high-rise apartment, Sara has no idea that her boyfriend was a thief. But what he stole - and from whom - is about to put her life on the line. Trapped in the penthouse with Hollander and his sadistic partner, these two will kill, maim, tear the place apart to find a fortune in diamonds. While the party rages outside, inside Sara fights desperately for her life. It's kill or be killed in a pulse-pounding , non-stop fight to the finish - and it all takes place in Penthouse North.

Michael Keaton back in action. Though he's not the protagonist (that is the lovely Michelle Monaghan), he relishes in his role. Seeing him, makes you want to have more of him. And on the big screen. Even his latest output (Robocop - 2014) sees him being one of the best things in there. He has that special charisma.

But back to the thriller at hand. A movie that tries to be clever and tries to lure the viewer with a few things. One of them being the back story of our lead. Her back story and another back story lead us straight to the current events of the movie. Though it is pretty solid, the movie never really gives us anything to root for. Even the ending is nothing that should be really surprising.
