Goofs

When Arthur gets home after work, he receives a threatening text with a photo of Emily and a time-stamp of 7:29 pm. The threat implies that Emily will be killed in 12 hours unless ransom is paid. According to the phone screen, Arthur receives a text with ransom details at 9:13 pm, demanding the ransom by 1 pm, five and a half hours after the kidnapper(s) said Emily would be killed. As Arthur immediately begins collecting cash from his safe, Jane says they'll have trouble getting to the drop site by 1pm because it is lunch time. When Arthur walks down a hall while looking at the just-received demand text, a window with daylight is visible, so the intended time of day appears to be lunch time, still hours after the original deadline.

A movie you can skip in my humble opinion.
5 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

I didn't liked this movie. The acting seemed to me unnatural, all of the actors were over-calm an emotionless, it was like a film for androids, at least in most of it. The plot had a potential but it was unrealized for a lot of reasons, I think mostly the directing. As the action was moving towards the end the whole thing became even more messy and sporadic and it all ended with a grand finale of nonsense.

Sorry about my poor English but I felt obliged to prevent other people from seeing that movie. I'm a simple man and I don't know much about the art cinematography but I can distinguish a bad movie when I see it, believe me.
